Athletes are very susceptible to acne due to higher testosterone levels and excess sweat gland production in their skin, which causes bacteria to multiply. Headbands, helmets and uniforms trap sweat and heat against the skin, causing hair follicle blockage, and clogged pores as a result.
The primary cause of acne in adults is related to stress. The brain and skin both make the same stress-related hormone that causes inflammation. Also, stress interferes with the thyroid’s response to thyroid stimulating hormones, and low levels of thyroid hormones leave the skin more vulnerable to inflammation. When a person with acne experiences a lot of stress, more oil is produced which clogs the hair follicles and allows more acne to form.
More than 90% of teenagers develop acne. It typically develops around the age of 13 and tends to peak around age 17, although in many cases will continue into the mid 20s. Androgens increase in both boys and girls during puberty. Androgens make the skin's oil glands larger which causes an increased production of sebum. Androgens can also increase due to hormonal changes related to pregnancy or starting or stopping birth control.
Genetics can also play a significant role in your skin’s complexion. If your parents had acne, you may have inherited those genes. Acne can persist well into your 20s and in some cases even longer. Around 7% of men and 18% of women aged 25 to 40 will still have acne or will develop it for the first time, which is known as ‘late onset acne’.
Hormonal acne is primarily experienced by women starting in their early teens and can last into their 40s and in some cases even 50s. Hormonal acne is typically most severe during a women’s mensural cycle which can cause a surge of hormones at once and as a result lead to sudden and aggressive acne breakouts. Other hormonal changes that can trigger acne flare ups include pregnancy, menopause and starting or stopping birth control.

Acne goes far beyond pimples and it’s emotional impact is more than just skin deep. Although acne is the most prevalent skin condition in the world, it can make you feel unattractive, isolated and depressed. Unfortunately, there is no cure for acne, but the good news is that we can now help you control this medical condition with the ideal mixture of active ingredients, enabling you to enjoy life free from this condition.
Acne formation happens in four steps that result in whiteheads, red bumps, or blackheads appearing on the surface of your skin. The process all begins with a pore that is clogged. Skin cells are constantly renewing themselves, and fresh skin is revealed every thirty days as old cells die and are sloughed off. These dead cells become sticky when they mix with oil, if you are prone to acne. This results in your pores becoming clogged, when oil and bacteria get trapped inside.

Hi, I’m Christian - the founder of CleaRx. As a teen growing up, I struggled with stubborn acne (even to this day I still get acne, when not using CleaRx regularly). After years of trying almost every acne treatment on the market with little to no results, that’s when I set out to develop a better, more effective solution. Acne caused me a great deal of anxiety, embarrassment and depression - it was a difficult struggle for me, which is why I am so passionate about helping others overcome their struggle with acne as well.
Following nearly a decade of stringent research and development, with the help of top chemists and skincare professionals in the industry, our eureka moment had finally arrived. At last, we had developed a solution that could help millions of people suffering from mild to severe and stubborn acne.
And that's the story of how CleaRx was born. Today, all of our products are professionally formulated and manufactured in our FDA regulated facility in Southern California - to keep your skin clean, hydrated, and most importantly, clear!
WELCOME TO CLEAR, CONFIDENT & HEALTHY SKIN. WELCOME TO CLEARX!
CleaRx is a maximum strength regimen, developed specifically to treat moderate to severe inflammatory and non-inflammatory teen and adult acne. This includes pimples, whiteheads, blackheads and hormonal breakouts. Cystic and nodular acne should only be treated by a Dermatologist. Acne is not curable, but it is treatable, controllable and preventable with the CleaRx treatment.
CleaRx is the first FDA registered acne treatment specifically developed to treat mild to severe and stubborn acne, whereas most acne treatments are only capable of treating mild and some moderate cases of acne. What makes CleaRx so effective is its combination of 7 essential benefits to treating acne that no other treatment on the market offers.
Yes! CleaRx is designed to work safely and effectively on all skin types. Our products are manufactured in our FDA regulated facility right here in the United States. Each batch we produce goes though strict quality & stability testing to meet or exceed FDA standards.
Side effects are usually mild and may include dryness, redness or irritation for some users. To test for an adverse reaction to your CleaRx treatment, simply apply the products to a small patch of affected skin for the first three days. A small group of people may be hyper-sensitive or allergic to active ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide. If you are one of these people, you should not use this treatment without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
Consistency is key when it comes to clearing your acne-prone skin. For best results, use CleaRx as directed. Weeks 4 through 8 is where the magic really happens! However, many users are seeing noticeable improvement in less than 2 weeks.
This depends on the sensitivity of your skin and the severity of your acne. For new users, we recommend starting out with just 1 application per day (in the morning) for the first 1-3 weeks, lightly applying Step 3 only to problem areas. This will allow your skin to develop a tolerance for the medication. Once you feel more comfortable, we recommend applying CleaRx twice per day - once in the morning and once at night.
Orders received before 12pm PST Monday thru Friday are typically processed and shipped the same day. If your order was received after this time, it will be shipped the following business day. Orders can be delivered as soon as the next business day with Expedited Shipping, or in up to 5-7 business days with Standard Shipping.
