There’s a new addition to Perricone MD’s Acne Relief collection — Maximum Strength Clearing Treatment.
Formulated with salicylic acid in a sustained delivery system for less irritation, the lightweight cream is gentle on the skin and contains biometric oat protein, skin-soothing cica and lactobacillus ferment.
“Following the successful launch of Acne Relief in 2020, we decided to expand the collection with a product that filled a gap in the market and in our portfolio,” said Jennifer Trovel, chief marketing officer of Perricone MD. “We worked to figure out what our acne consumers needed from us and we found out they were looking for a product that delivers clear, acne-free skin while eliminating the discomfort and irritation that they normally experience with their acne regimen. With the launch of the Maximum Strength Clearing Treatment, we achieved just that.”
The biometric oat protein works as a skin sensitivity neutralizer designed to mimic the natural active ingredient in oats to calm acne flare-ups. Cica, also known as tiger grass, is an antimicrobial herb that soothes irritation, moisturizes and reduces redness while also strengthening the skin barrier. The company said that plant-derived ferment lactobacillus promotes a clear, calm and soothed complexion by selectively targeting blemish-causing bacteria.
“We constantly evolve our portfolio to be best-in-class, and we do that by triangulating feedback from multiple, disparate sources,” said Robert Koerner, president of Perricone MD. “While Acne Relief was a major success when it launched in 2020, our early-trier study, customer reviews and previous consumer studies indicated there was major opportunity to address additional consumer needs.”
