Epiclear Acne Spray

Rated: 50 out of 100

Epiclear is an over-the-counter spray-on product applied 1-3 times per day on skin that has been cleaned. After being sprayed on, Epiclear is rubbed in with the fingertips. Epiclear can be used anywhere on the body.

According to the manufacturers, Epiclear's active ingredients consist of 0.5% salicylic acid and "new liposome technology."

  • The exfoliating and cleansing properties of salicylic acid are well-known - salicylic acid is a common ingredient in topical acne medications. It functions as an exfoliant and is also used to treat psoriasis.
  • A liposome is an artificial bubble, made of fat, that can transport a drug or other substances into a cell. Epiclear uses liposomes constructed of soy to deliver Vitamins A, C and E to the cells of the skin. Because the liposomes penetrate the cell walls, the antioxidants are released directly into the cells.

The Epiclear formula is both dye- and fragrance-free.

Epiclear has been clinically tested. According to the study posted on the Epiclear web site, their product out-performed placebo by 5-10 times.

Epiclear seems to function as a combination acne medication and lotion. The delivery of vitamins directly into skin cells certainly has a positive effect but whether or not it directly reduces acne is unclear.
