How Proactiv Complete Works

We think you should love your skin, every day. Whatever your age and whatever your lifestyle, you deserve a beautiful complexion that glows. That’s why we developed Proactiv Complete. If you find that blemishes and breakouts keep coming back, you’ll love that our new 3-step system fights the cause of breakouts. The result? Clearer, radiant-looking skin and a more confident you. 

 The Magic of CombiActiv™

CombiActiv™ is our not-so-secret ingredient. We’ve spent 10 years developing this powerful breakout-fighting technology. That’s why you’ll only find it in Protactiv Complete.

Excess oil, dead skin cells, inflammation and bacteria are the four main causes of blemishes and breakouts. We developed CombiActiv™ to directly target these areas. That’s why it’s so effective. In fact, this amazing ingredient is clinically proven to unclog your pores, reduce oiliness, kill bacteria and soothe your skin.

When you use our targeted 3-step system, you’ll see a visible difference in the appearance of your complexion. As if by magic.

  1. Cleanses and unclogs pores
  2. Fights bacteria
  3. Reduces oil production

3 simple steps, twice a day. That’s all it takes to achieve clearer skin.
