Murad, Inc., the skincare brand synonymous with high-performance, science-based products, announced today the addition of two new products, Acne Spot Fast Fix and Acne Clearing Solution, which are proven to enhance the effectiveness of the company's already award-winning Acne line. Designed to quickly and effectively reduce breakouts by targeting and treating acne-causing bacteria and debris without causing irritation, Acne Spot Fast Fix and Acne Clearing Solution deliver proven results. In clinical studies, 96% of Acne Clearing Solution users saw clearer skin in just 72 hours and Acne Spot Fast Fix helped reduce pimple severity in as little as 1 day*.
Backed by the company's promise to provide scientifically-proven formulas, the launch of Acne Spot Fast Fix also marks the introduction of the first-ever Murad product to contain Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO). Prior to this launch, Murad's Acne formulas have been based only on Salicylic Acid and Sulfur because, until recently, the only form of BPO commonly available was highly likely to cause redness, dryness, extreme irritation and even a burning sensation for some users. Recent advances in technology have allowed Murad to create Acne Spot Fast Fix, which utilizes Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide delivered in a unique new system called hydrophase. Hydrophase enables the formula to better penetrate into pores rather than sit on the skin's surface, thereby delivering the acne-fighting power of Benzoyl Peroxide without causing irritation.
"At Murad, we always look at how we can effectively treat acne in a way that addresses all of the issues that are causing it. This means using ingredients that not only treat the problem, but also those that will protect the skin's barrier function and make it as healthy as possible so it can take care of itself," said Howard Murad, M.D., FAAD, founder of Murad, Inc. and the Inclusive Health® movement. "Acne is a condition that affects people of all ages, not just teenagers and, because it is so difficult to treat, it can be emotionally debilitating, causing serious self-esteem issues. We are confident that these new products will alleviate the visible symptoms of acne and help ease the stress that often accompanies the condition."
