One of the most popular acne treatments to ever hit the market, Proactiv is a worldwide product that it was developed by 2 dermatologists. It is supposed to eliminate blackheads by exfoliating, killing bacteria, and shrinking pores.
Another selling point for Proactiv is that it is supposed to be one of the safest products on the market. One of the best-selling blackhead treatments is Nanocleanse. It is also supposed to eliminate blackheads and to be very safe. Proactiv is popular for celebrity endorsement, but is it as popular as Nanocleanse for being safe and effective?
Step 1: Renewing Cleanser
Active Ingredient:benzoyl peroxide 2.5%.
Inactive Ingredients: water (aqua), magnesium aluminum silicate, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, disodium dimethicone copolyol sulfosuccinate, sorbitol, dimethyl isosorbide, polyethylene, tridecyl stearate, neopentyl glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, tridecyl trimellitate, cetyl esters, anthemis nobilis flower extract, sodium hyaluronate, sodium PCA, propylene glycol, xanthan gum, imidazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, fragrance (parfum).
water (aqua), glycolic acid, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) extract, anthemis nobilis flower extract, rosa canina fruit extract, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, sodium PCA, panthenol, glycerin, propylene glycol, allantoin, polysorbate-20, hydroxyethylcellulose, sodium hydroxide, benzophenone-4, tetrasodium EDTA, methylparaben, propylparaben, imidazolidinyl urea, fragrance (parfum), blue 1, yellow 5.
According to the official Proactiv website, side effects include only dryness, which can apparently be remedied by using their moisturizer included in the basic pack. But in truth, even customers who have used the whole combination often report dryness, redness, increased sun sensitivity, increased acne, allergic reactions, etc, again even when using the Proactiv moisturizer.
In analysis of the Proactiv formula, it lacks many of the essential ingredients required to effectively treat blackheads. It also has quite a few side effects that naturally the Proactiv manufacturers will not name.
So it seems that, although celebrities say Proactiv is the best, it may not be. On the other hand, Nanocleanse continues to be a customer preferred product for eradicating blackheads and rejuvenating skin.
Nanocleanse has prescription-strength blackhead fighting ingredients, but it shouldn’t cause side effects. The makers have guarded against that happening by using ingredients that moisturize, protect, and revitalize skin.
Nanocleanse costs less than Proactiv and it comes with a money back guarantee too. We recommend that you try Nanocleanse instead of Proactiv.
