Product Info from the manufacturer
Stridex Essential Pads contain a stronger acne-fighter (1% salicylic acid) than most “Regular” Strength Pads, plus they are the only medicated pads to contain essential vitamins C and E for clear, healthy skin. Salicylic acid penetrates pores to help eliminate and prevent breakouts, while essential vitamins soothe and nourish skin. Essential Pads contain effective skin cleansers that work to remove dirt, oil, sweat and other impurities from the surface of the skin, penetrate to unclog pores, and dissolve deep down oil. They even remove impurities that soaps and face washes leave behind…just look at the pad for proof. They also help prevent new pimples from forming. Each pad is specially textured for great cleansing with a great feel whether you want scrubbing or smooth, soft application.
All Stridex pad formulas are completely alcohol-free, so you get proven acne-fighting effectiveness without the skin-irritating burn. The drying, irritating effects of alcohol on skin are well understood…years ago Stridex determined that alcohol was unnecessary in its pad formulations. Typical acne pads can contain 25-40% alcohol…the resulting redness and irritation can be a bigger nuisance than the problem you are trying to solve.
Use after washing your face in the morning or during the day for a quick clean-up.
