Gentle, exfoliating, oil-free, dye-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free, Salicylic Acid 2% medicated cleanser for the treatment of acne.

This gentle yet effective oil-free acne wash deep cleans without over drying. Helps eliminate the breakout cycle while it removes excess oil, make-up and bacteria. Soothes and conditions the skin, leaving it squeaky clean and residue-free.

Indications:
For the treatment and control of acne.  This product penetrates pores to eliminate, clear up and help prevent the development of new whiteheads, blackheads and acne blemishes while allowing the skin to heal.
Warnings:
For external use only.  Avoid contact with eyes.  If contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water.  Using other topical acne medications at the same time or immediately following use of this product may increase dryness or irritation of the skin.  If this occurs, only one medication should be used unless directed by a doctor.  Keep out of reach of children.  In case of accidental ingestion seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

Active Ingredients: Salicylic Acid (2%)

Inactive Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Lauryl Glucoside, Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B5), Allantoin, Methylparaben, Quaternium-15

For acne on the face and neck, using a small amount, add water, work into a lather and massage into affected area, avoiding eyes and sensitive areas of the neck. Use with caution around the mouth. Rinse thoroughly. Finish and protect with a PTR treatment product, moisturizer and/or sun protection.

Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, begin with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.

      Great product but make sure you do not use it around your eyes- it will dry out the area. Leaves skin clean and seems to be working. Comes in a huge bottle and will last a long time- worth the money.

      Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash, 8 oz:

      This product is expensive but very effective and worth the cost. For a less drying treatment more suitable for adult women try the buffing bead wash or the Glycolic wash. I use all 3. The Beta Hydroxy wash clears up a breakout, but when my skin is almost healed I like the buffing beads because it is soothing. The Glycolic Acid wash I use in between breakouts because it makes my skin look younger. I love Peter Thomas Roth products!

        I've looked for a long time for a product that would clear up my mild adult acne along my chin and jawline without wrecking my sensitive skin, and this is it. It's expensive, but it is a big bottle and you only need a pea-sized drop of it to to the job. It even takes off eye makeup too! Peter Thomas Roth products are really fabulous.

          This wash is amazing. I've been using it for about a year now.

          I am a nearly 40 year-old man with acne-prone skin and this wash has helped my skin so much!

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash, 8 oz:

          I've been using this cleanser for quite some time now. A little goes a long way, so a container lasts a good long time. Now that my skin's so much better, I only use it a few times a week. (I alternate with gentle, non-treatment type cleansers and simply a water-only rinsing and massage, depending on what my skin seems to need between treatments with this cleanser.) I put it on my dampened face for about 5 minutes, then gently remove it, either with my fingertips or with a gentle brush if I feel the need for a more thorough cleansing. (My brush is by Shiseido, but I hear baby brushes can do the same sort of thing.) This one's gentler, in my opinion, than the similar DDF Salicylic Wash.

          I have combination acne prone skin and this completely dried it out! I used it for one week and my face was peeling everywhere. It cleared up some acne but wasn't worth it at all.

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash, 8 oz:

          The thing with facial products is the amount of ingredients that are in it. Most preservatives, emollients, fragrance and the other important stuff thats supposed to be on the top of the list and not at the bottom or in the lower middle area of the ingredient list. This cleanser has it in what it needs and none of the other irritating stuff. The reason why you most likely see new developing acne is because they were under your skin waiting to come out; you couldn't see them but they were there!!! This cleanser doesn't have 20 ingredients, no fragrance and no irritating factors, just simple skincare to help bring out underlying acne and heal the ones that already exist. It's great!!!!

          Comments about Peter Thomas Roth Beta Hydroxy Acid 2% Acne Wash, 8 oz:

          I tried my first bottle in December 2003. It's now mid-August and I can still push that first bottle till probably mid-September. You use a small amount that goes a long way. The cleanser has calmed my breakouts, leaves no residue, and doesn't dry my skin. Most acne aimed products are way to harsh and actually dry me out and make me look like a reptile. NOT this cleanser. It might seem a little expensive, but well worth it.
