What is the difference between the CLEAR Regular Strength Kit, and the CLEAR Extra Strength Kit?
The CLEAR Regular and Extra Strength Anti-Acne systems both come with 3 products:
Identical formula in both the Regular and Extra Strength systems:
The difference between the Regular and Extra Strength CLEAR exfoliants is in the delivery systems and their textures. Both contain 2% salicylic acid but the Regular Strength has a nearly weightless feel on your skin and a pH of around 3.9, making it gentler on the skin. The Extra Strength version's formula can penetrate deeper into the pore and has a pH of 3.5. It is designed for those with more stubborn or persistent breakouts. Both exfoliants are highly effective options as part of a routine for clear skin; you may need to experiment with both to see which works best for your skin type.
Both contain the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide which is considered the gold-standard for preventing breakouts. Both work immediately to start eliminating acne-causing bacteria and reduce redness. Regular strength contains 2.5% benzoyl peroxide (mild to moderate breakouts) while the extra strength contains 5% benzoyl peroxide (moderate to severe breakouts).
In addition to one of the CLEAR 3-step systems, we suggest that you incorporate one of our toners and an AM/PM Moisturizer based on skin type to complete your skin-care regimen which can provide you with additional benefits for preventing or reducing the signs of aging.
