|Stridex is the first to take the sting and harshness out of medicated acne pads by removing the alcohol and using a softer, better-feeling pad.
Stridex Maximum Pads have the highest level of acne-fighting medicine allowed (2% salicylic acid) without a prescription, and are recommended for cases of moderate acne. Maximum Pads contain effective skin cleansers that work to remove dirt, oil, sweat and other impurities from the surface of the skin, penetrate to unclog pores, and dissolve deep down oil. They even help prevent new pimples from forming. Use after washing your face in the morning or during the day for a quick clean-up.
Stridex Alcohol-Free Pads are non-drying and gentler on the skin than ordinary alcohol-based formulas, enabling more frequent irritation-free use. That's important, because consistent daily use of acne-fighting medication is the key to effective acne control and prevention. Stridex offers the only medicated pads that are alcohol free. Competitive brands still contain alcohol at levels ranging from 34 percent to as high as 55 percent of the formulas. Stridex pads are also specially textured, to provide gentle cleansing and a better feel.
Stridex Alcohol-Free Pads remove dirt, unclog pores and dissolve oil to clear up and help prevent pimples. Each pad contains the proven acne medication, salicylic acid. Stridex Alcohol-Free Pads are available in three unique formulas: Maximum, Sensitive and Essential. Click to view the ingredients and directions for Maximum Strength Pads.
