Crown Therapeutics’ PanOxyl® Prioritizes Skin Health and Hydration with Acne Care Product Reformulation and New Launch

Johnson City, TN. May 1, 2023 – Crown Therapeutics, a division of Crown Laboratories, is proud to announce that PanOxyl® is expanding its award-winning portfolio with its new PM Balancing Repair Moisturizer and reformulating the existing AM Oil Control Moisturizer.

PanOxyl’s PM Balancing Repair Moisturizer’s proprietary formula, created specifically for those who regularly use Benzoyl Peroxide and other acne topicals with drying properties, features a combination of antioxidants, ceramides, and seven molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to continuously balance acne-prone skin. The new PM gel cream formula is intended to work alongside PanOxyl’s AM Oil Control Moisturizer Lotion by hydrating and soothing inflamed skin to help control oil production while minimizing the overall appearance of pores.

“As a Dermatologist, I continuously stress the importance of overall skin health and hydration, especially while undergoing Benzoyl Peroxide acne treatments which can make your skin feel dry,” said Dr Tiffany Libby, MD, Board-Certified Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon. “PanOxyl’s PM Balancing Repair Moisturizer perfectly complements the existing range of PanOxyl products and contains active ingredients, like Niacinamide, to control excess oil and visibly even out skin tone, both of which are common concerns for my acne patients. I am excited to have additional acne-specific options for my patients from a brand that I trust.”

PanOxyl’s AM Oil Control Moisturizer launched in 2018 to provide consumers with a mattifying daily SPF moisturizer for acne prone skin. The revolutionary three-in-one moisturizer was formulated to absorb excess oils, nourish with antioxidants, and provide mineral-based UV protection. The reformulation enhanced the lightweight feel for a smooth and seamless everyday application and a more sheer finish.

“We know patients can struggle with additional skin conditions that often occur when using popular acne medication – conditions such as dry skin and an imbalanced skin barrier,” says Steve Gallopo, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Crown Therapeutics. “Acne therapies can be harsh on your skin. With PanOxyl’s new Balancing Repair Moisturizer, along with the reformulation of our existing Oil Control Moisturizer lotion, consumers will now have two pivotal product innovations to round out a full line of clinically proven acne-focused skincare products that they can feel confident using on their skin.” 

PanOxyl, a dermatologist recommended over-the-counter (OTC) line of products designed to clear, treat, and prevent acne, is a physician-preferred acne solution. Garnering attention from celebrities and public figures for its reputation of being the #1 Best-Selling Acne Product in the U.S.1, the Benzoyl Peroxide formulations found in PanOxyl’s award-winning products clear existing breakouts and prevent future breakouts to end the acne cycle. PanOxyl products are available on Amazon, and in stores nationwide at Walgreens, Target, CVS, Walmart and Rite Aid.
