CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide, 5 oz (150ml)
4% benzoyl peroxide acne face wash
Acne is a common skin concern at any age, spanning from the teen years to adulthood. An effective acne cleanser is the first step of an anti-acne regimen, and it sets the stage for other products that follow, including over-the-counter and prescription-based acne treatments. Beyond helping to clear acne pimples and blackheads, an acne cleanser with benzoyl peroxide can also help give acne blemishes a chance to heal while maintaining the skin’s barrier.
Ceramides are an essential component of the skin’s barrier. Their levels can be depleted over time by using harsh skincare products, which can lead to a potential increase in dryness and irritation. Acne-prone skin has been associated with lower levels of ceramides that play a key role in the skin’s protective barrier,1 so an acne face wash that is formulated with these lipids may be able to help maintain clear skin.
CeraVe is the #1 dermatologist-recommended moisturizer brand for acne*, and our first acne-treatment product with 4% benzoyl peroxide is backed by well-established skincare knowledge and expertise. The new CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser acne face wash is formulated to thoroughly dissolve dirt and excess oil while clearing acne with 4% benzoyl peroxide. This formula also features hyaluronic acid to help retain the skin’s natural moisture and niacinamide to provide soothing benefits, while allowing skin to heal.
Developed with dermatologists, this 4% benzoyl peroxide cleanser clears acne breakouts and helps prevent new blemishes from forming. Gentle on the skin, CeraVe Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser helps maintain the skin’s barrier with three essential ceramides, leaves skin feeling soft and comfortable, and reduces acne without dryness or flaking.
