In a recent investigation conducted by the independent laboratory Valisure, alarming levels of benzene, a chemical known for its carcinogenic properties, have been identified in several acne treatment products. This discovery encompasses products from renowned brands such as Estee Lauder’s Clinique, Target’s Up & Up, Reckitt Benckiser’s Clearasil, as well as other products including Proactiv, PanOxyl, Walgreens’ acne soap bar, and Walmart’s Equate Beauty acne cream.

Details of the Discovery

Valisure’s rigorous testing identified benzene in various acne treatment solutions, including those from Proactiv, PanOxyl, and retail brands like Walgreens and Walmart’s Equate Beauty acne cream.
