Tested On Animals:

This product is primarily a very abrasive scrub whose secondary action is cleansing. Recommended by the company for use on face and body, it is too abrasive for all skin types, and the amount of sodium lauryl sulfate (a known skin irritant used as the standard in dermatologic irritancy skin testing) is bound to be drying and irritating. As a reminder, acne cannot be scrubbed away, and scrubs like this are abrasive enough to be disastrous when used over inflamed acne lesions.

Strong enough for your body, gentle enough for your face, PanOxyl Cleanser and Conditioner is a dermatologist-developed facial and full body exfoliant and conditioner. The formula contains unique polishing particles that gently clean and stimulate skin with rich lathering conditioners that leave it feeling softer and smoother.

Alumina, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Water, Peg 75, Bentonite, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Lauric Acid, Myristic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Quaternium 15, Iron Oxide, Fragrance

This small line of anti-acne products is sold in many drugstores, sometimes positioned near the pharmacy. Knowing that this line comes from a pharmaceutical company (Stiefel) that specializes in dermatology, the incomplete nature of what they offer consumers is very disappointing.
