Number One Best-Selling PanOxyl® 10% Acne Foaming Wash Wins Allure’s Coveted 2023 “Best of Beauty” Award

Johnson City, TN, September 21, 2023 – Crown Laboratories, Inc. (“Crown”) is proud to announce that the number one best-selling acne foaming wash in the United States*, PanOxyl® 10% Acne Foaming Wash, has been recognized with a 2023 Allure Best of Beauty Award in the Body category. The brand’s hero Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) acne wash pioneered the BPO consumer segment in the 1970s and continues to be a leader in the marketplace to this day.    

This coveted designation is a result of an extensive deliberation process with over 300 products across 14 cosmetic categories – the expert panel of judges included some of the industry's most recognized skincare chemists, dermatologists, manicurists, makeup artists and Allure’s all-star cast of experienced beauty editors.

"We are extremely proud to announce that PanOxyl’s 10% BPO Acne Foaming Wash is being recognized yet again for its efficacy in the treatment of acne – especially from an institution as reputable as Allure," said Steve Gallopo, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Therapeutics at Crown.  “The brand has always been a Dermatologist-favorite and it is exciting to see individuals from our loyal consumers to big Hollywood names are seeing that it really works. This award further solidifies PanOxyl’s place as the industry ‘gold standard’ for BPO acne treatment."

By branding itself as The Acne Authority™, PanOxyl is reinforcing its commitment to consumers - empowering them through product and ingredient education so they can determine their most appropriate acne treatment routine.  Most recently, Crown expanded its PanOxyl over-the-counter acne care portfolio with the introduction of adapalene and salicylic acid-based topicals, along with a novel bar soap format for increased ease of application.

PanOxyl 10% Acne Foaming Wash is available on Amazon and in retailers such as Walgreens, Target, CVS, Walmart and Rite Aid.
