Containing mid-strength 5% benzoyl peroxide, this Anthony Loren product can safely treat acne with every day use without the excessive dryness commonly associated with 10% preparations.
Acne is often best treated by using three topical ingredients - salicylic acid (found in our cleanser and mint mask), benzoyl peroxide (found in the Acne Suppress Serum) and a vitamin-A derivative (such as our Tretinol), but most people cannot tolerate all three of these in their full over-the-counter allowable strength. If you tried, your skin would likely become excessively dry, leading to increased oil production and ultimately an increase in acne!
We have found that there is very little difference in results by using a 5% benzoyl peroxide (instead of 10%) or 2% salicylic acid (instead of 4%), but there is often a huge difference in side effects (eg - excessive dryness associated with the higher strengths). By using mid-strength preparations, Anthony Loren products allow you to fully harness the power of all three of these great treatment ingredients without excessive dryness or rebound acne, resulting in a superior reduction in acne compared to other acne skincare lines.
See for yourself, and you'll experience the Anthony Loren Difference.
