Hello,
Is it ok to use acne spot treatments such as benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid after applying CP serum to my entire face?

Thank you

Dear jaha:

Although our products are not acne treatments, you can use those two ingredients with CP Serum. No problem.

We'd suggest of course instead of benzoyl peroxide, that you use salicylic acid.

Actually, the two work so well together that we have a combo of CP Serum + Exfol Serum (2% Salicylic Acid) - There is no problem using salicylic acid + copper peptides.

Best Wishes,

Thank you for the reply. Why do you guys not recommend benzoyl peroxide for acne?

Acne preparations made of benzoyl peroxide may contain various other chemical ingredients. Glycolic acid is a photo sensitizer and may be toxic to gastrointestinal system, nervous system and kidneys. Triethanolamine can form carcinogenic nitrosamine compounds on the skin or in the body after absorption.

Interesting Dr. Pickart. I always wondered why you never introduced a glycolic acid product as many tout it's excellent for anti aging.

Is tretinoin safe to use?

I prefer the natural product if possible. Lactic acid is naturally on the skin.

Tretinoin
