Oxy brand expands with new Oxy Clinical line
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Looking to help teens battle blemishes, the Mentholatum Co.’s Oxy brand is promoting its new Oxy Clinical line.
Eighty-five percent of adolescents experience acne, the company stated. While acne is caused by hormonal imbalances that lead to an increase in oil production, there are two ingredients that are clinically proven to help heal, treat and prevent acne: benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid.
Oxy Clinical is a new line of acne fighting products that incorporates new, continuous-release technology allowing the products to work longer.
The Oxy Clinical advanced face wash is a continuous-action formula that is designed to fight breakouts even after rinsing by using its patented AcneShield salicylic acid. Up to 80% of AcneShield remains fighting acne longer.
For prescription-strength acne bacteria reduction, Oxy Clinical clearing treatment eliminates 99% of acne bacteria in eight hours. Its patented OxySphere micro-encapsulated benzoyl peroxide is designed to remain on the skin longer to reach acne bacteria deep inside pores.
Oxy Clinical hydrating therapy’s 3-in-1 formula promises to go beyond moisturizing. Salicylic acid exfoliates skin, unclogs pores and fights blemishes. The Poly-Pore technology hydrates and nourishes the complexion to absorb and prevent overproduction of oil. It’s formulated with hyaluronic acid to revitalize skin and help retain moisture.
