Proactiv Solution

Email this article

Proactiv Solution is a 3-step acne treatment system. By combining a renewing cleanser, revitalizing toner, and repairing lotion, Proactiv can effectively treat acne. Proactiv Solution was developed by two physicians, Katie Rodan, MD, and Kathy Fields, MD.

Renewing Cleanser

The renewing cleanser, the first part of the Proactiv Solution, is used twice daily -- morning and night. The active ingredient is benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. It is applied to dampened skin and then thoroughly rinsed with warm water. It gently exfoliates your skin.

Revitalizing Toner

The revitalizing toner is a mild solution that's applied to the skin twice daily with a cotton ball. After application, this solution should be allowed to dry. Some of the ingredients include witch hazel, flower and fruit extracts, and glycolic acid. It is alcohol-free and helps to remove dead skin and smooth your skin.

Repairing Lotion

Proactiv Solution repairing lotion is used twice daily. It is applied in a thin layer and is not rinsed off. The main ingredient is benzoyl peroxide.  It is an oil-free lotion that helps to treat blackheads.

Proactiv Side Effects

Side effects of Proactiv Solution are usually mild. Sometimes irritation or drying can occur, especially in people who have a sensitivity to benzoyl peroxide. Specific concerns should be discussed with your physician.

Proactiv & Pregnancy

As with any medication, you should consult your physician before using Proactiv Solution if you're pregnant.


With a risk-free sixty day guarantee, there is almost nothing to lose by trying Proactiv Solution. It is a proactive solution to your acne problem.
