Revolutionary Benzene-Free Acne Solution – Probiotic Skincare a Safe Acne Solution

No doubt, by now, you are seeing the news breaking everywhere about the toxic, cancer-causing compound “benzene” being found in acne treatments that contain the common skincare ingredient benzoyl peroxide (BPO) at 12x the FDA-regulated amount. Benzoyl peroxide products are usually used to treat mild to moderate acne. When used to treat acne, benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the number of acne-causing bacteria and by stripping the skin microbiome. While BPO itself is not a carcinogen, but a well-known irritant, “the benzene in the BPO products is coming from the benzoyl peroxide itself” said Valisure Co-Founder and President David Light. Valisure’s tests showed some products to contain more than 800 times the restricted concentration limit for benzene.    

What is it? Benzene is a sweet-smelling, petroleum-derived toxic chemical classified by the Environmental Protection Agency as a known human carcinogen.     


There is no safe level of human exposure to benzene.    

It is known that benzene can enter your body by passing through your skin and into your bloodstream during skin contact with benzene or benzene-containing products. Once in the bloodstream, benzene travels throughout your body and can be temporarily stored in the bone marrow and fat. Benzene is converted to products, called metabolites, in the liver and bone marrow. These metabolites cause some of the harmful effects of benzene exposure.  

Benzene exposure is linked to fewer red blood cell levels and an increased risk of leukemia. Atoxicity assessment by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown benzene can harm the central nervous system and may affect reproductive organs. This is a serious risk, created by a common skincare ingredient used in professional skincare, to treat acne.

Dakota Biotech, who manufactures Live P.S. - Live Probiotic Skincare, has a patented technology to deliver LIVE probiotics that target those acne-causing bacteria without all the side effects of OTC acne products and promote a healthy skin microbiome.  

LIVE probiotics are advantageous in the care of skin disorders and play an important role in skin health, such as reconstructing atopic dermatitis, promoting the healing of scars and burns, and strengthening the skin’s immune defense system. Studies also show probiotics can be beneficial in alleviating symptoms of acne, eczema, and more.

A Friendly Tip 

When you bring probiotics into your skincare routine, your skin might go through a "purge" phase. This is your skin's unique journey as it adapts to the change. If things seem a bit rocky at first, don't worry – it's all part of the process of getting clearer skin. However, if you experience any burning sensation, stop using the product right away.

Individuals should prioritize using products that do not pose health risks to themselves or their family. They can achieve this by opting for alternatives like Live P.S. that offer effective treatment without harmful ingredients like benzoyl peroxide. 


Are there any regulations in place to prevent benzene contamination in skincare products? 

While the FDA regulates benzene levels in consumer products, instances of contamination still occur. It's essential for companies to adhere to strict quality control measures to prevent such occurrences and ensure consumer safety. 


Can benzene exposure from skincare products be avoided entirely?
