Acne Control Cleanser
CeraVe is the #1 dermatologist-recommended cleanser brand for acne*, and our Acne Control Cleanser with 2% salicylic acid is formulated to clear acne, reduce blackheads and improve the appearance of pores, while purifying clay helps absorb excess oil.
- Made For: Acne-Prone Oily Skin
- Helps With: Acne
I recommend CeraVe's Acne Control Cleanser as a part of an acne skincare regimen, with 2% salicylic acid to help unclog pores and hectorite clay to help absorb excess oil and control shine. The addition of niacinamide and 3 essential ceramides helps to calm and support the skin barrier. This cleanser gently cleans while helping to prevent the start of acne.
Acne can affect teenagers and adults alike, and an effective acne cleanser is an essential step in any anti-acne skincare regimen. Ideal for daily use to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells that can clog pores and contribute to acne, a cleanser with salicylic acid offers acne-controlling benefits and may complement other over-the-counter and prescription-based acne treatments to help maintain clear, healthy skin—just be sure to check with your dermatologist.
