The FDA has implemented tighter controls designed to ensure that women do not take isotretinoin, Roche AG's drug to treat severe acne, during pregnancy. The US regulator said the changes would help prevent many of the miscarriages and birth defects associated with the drug.
Benzoyl peroxide can cause premature skin aging, slow healing, and is associated with increased skin cancer risks. In 1995, the FDA issued warnings regarding the use of benzoyl peroxide and changed its status from "safe" to "uncertain." Salicylic acid may dry the skin, causing irritation and redness. AcnEase doesn't dry or irritate skin, regardless of skin tone and type.
Some customers comment that AcnEase is more expensive than over-the-counter treatments like Clearasil and others. The extremely high quality of our unique herbal ingredients, means you may have to pay a bit more. But you can't put a price on safety, and if you've tried multiple acne solutions over a period of years, you've probably already spent thousands.
