Revolutionary Benzene-Free Acne Solution – Probiotic Skincare a Safe Acne Solution

Revolutionary Benzene-Free Acne Solution – Probiotic Skincare a Safe Acne Solution  

No doubt, by now, you are seeing the news breaking everywhere about the toxic, cancer-causing compound “Benzene” being found in acne treatments that contain the common skincare ingredient benzoyl peroxide (BPO) at 12x the FDA-regulated amount.  Benzoyl peroxide products are usually used to treat mild to moderate acne. When used to treat acne, benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the number of acne-causing bacteria and by stripping the skin microbiome.  While BPO itself is not a carcinogen, but a well-known irritant, “the benzene in the BPO products is coming from the benzoyl peroxide itself” said Valisure Co-Founder and President David Light.  Valisure’s tests showed some products to contain more than 800 times the restricted concentration limit for benzene.   

What is it?  Benzene is a sweet-smelling, petroleum-derived toxic chemical classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as aknown human carcinogen.     


There is no safe level of human exposure to benzene.   

It is known that Benzene can enter your body by passing through your skin and into your bloodstream during skin contact with benzene or benzene-containing products. Once in the bloodstream, benzene travels throughout your body and can be temporarily stored in the bone marrow and fat. Benzene is converted to products, called metabolites, in the liver and bone marrow. These metabolites cause some of the harmful effects of benzene exposure. 
Benzene exposureis linked to fewer red blood cell levels and an increased risk of leukemia. Atoxicity assessment by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown benzene can harm the central nervous system and may affect reproductive organs.  This is a serious risk, created by a common skincare ingredient used in professional skincare, to treat acne.  As skincare professionals, we have a responsibility to ensure that we are not using products that create downstream risks for our client’s health and well-being.
