Proactiv® Deep Cleaning Wash

Deep Cleansing Wash cannot help unclog pores as claimed because its 2% salicylic acid is washed down the drain before it can go to work inside the pore lining. More of an issue is that this cleansing scrub contains a heavy dose of fragrance. Daily use of products that contain a high amount of fragrance, whether the fragrant ingredients are synthetic or natural, causes chronic irritation that can damage healthy collagen production, lead to or worsen dryness, and impair your skin's ability to heal.
