The Proactiv Solution acne skincare system includes 3 products: the Renewing Cleanser, Revitalizing Toner and Repairing Treatment. Each product has a unique formula that works to provide better looking skin when used in combination. The makers of the product attribute its success to quality ingredients used in each product formula. Proactiv, however, features ingredients that are found in a variety of acne treatment products. So how do consumers know if the ingredients Proactiv uses in their formula are of good quality and what makes their formulas different from other products on the market?
It’s possible that differences may not be as significant as product developers want you to think. While many people are familiar with key ingredients used in acne treatment, it’s likely the same ingredients are used but in different proportions. This is a reason why it’s smart to research ingredients before trying out any skin care product. Most Proactiv reviews will tell you that the Renewing Cleanser for example, features benzoyl peroxide. This ingredient has antibacterial properties to help pores become free of dirt buildup. Other ingredients in this product include magnesium aluminum silicate and glyceryl stearate, which helps give skin a smooth look and feel.
The Revitalizing Toner features a common ingredient, alpha-hydroxy acid that helps improve texture of the skin. This is known to help treat acne scarring. A natural astringent reminiscent of witch hazel called hamamelis virginiana extract helps treat redness and swelling. The product also claims to have natural herbs. The Repairing Lotion also features benzoyl peroxide but in a different amount since it remains in the skin after using the cleanser. The lotion also features common ingredients known to give lotion a smooth texture for easier skin absorbency.
Many consumers question the quality of Proactiv ingredients but for different reasons. Some get confused when reviewing label ingredients, especially when many are hard to pronounce or seem foreign. Some who have used the product claim their skin saw no unique change or obtained so much irritation in the first use that they no longer wanted to continue using it. Then, many who are familiar with skin reactions of certain ingredients feel there is no such presence of quality in the product itself. The product may have a unique look while being presented in its packaging on television infomercials and the company website, but those who didn’t obtain favorable results claim their isn’t much quality to speak of that makes it special or stand out from other acne products.
So what exactly deems an ingredient to be of quality? This may depend on personal opinion but quality ingredients help make the product be effective. If a product claims it will help your skin in a certain way and you actually obtain that result, it’s likely the product features good quality ingredients. Quality also includes the right balance of ingredients. Proactiv has been available on the market for quite a while, like other acne care products. Some products have what they want consumers to believe are quality ingredients. It may just be one key active ingredient that works better with a mix of ingredients of lesser quality.
