Description

Clearasil Rapid Action Facial Scrub is a deep cleansing formula that helps people with breakouts to rapidly clear their skin and prevent spots from forming.

This scrub is designed to help skin look and feel clearer and healthier within 12 hours of use. It is dermatologist-tested and has a creamy texture on the skin.

Formulated with exfoliating beads that help to provide a deep cleansing action, it also contains salicylic acid, an active spot-fighting substance. This helps open the pores and clear them of dirt, oil, and dead skin cells, and also to neutralise the bacteria that can lead to spots forming.

This leads to generally clearer skin and protection from the formation of pimples throughout the day.

Scientific Research

For people with Acne

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find any scientific data on Clearasil Rapid Action Facial Scrub in people with acne. However, the product contains salicylic acid which is an ingredient that is commonly used in acne treatment products. This ingredient is thought to help limit the clogging of pores by dissolving what holds skin cells together and reducing sebum production.

For instance, in a 4 week cross-over study of 30 patients with mild-to-moderate acne, a 2% salicylic acid cleanser was reported to reduce the number of comedones compared with when using a 10% benzoyl peroxide wash (1).

Excess sebum is one of the main factors involved in acne pathogenesis (2). Salicylic acid in (very) high concentrations in an exfoliator has been shown to effectively reduce sebum secretion (3).

It is important to note that salicylic acid can cause mild side effects such as mild, local irritation. This product also contains perfume which is one of the most common contact allergens, and can irritate sensitive skin further (4, 5). It is important to be aware that the exfoliating beads contained in the product may lead to further skin irritation and inflammation for some people with sensitive skin.
