Eptex acne products feature a controlled-release Intelli-Target™ technology that delivers treatment where it's needed and most effective, minimizing the side effects typically associated with acne treatments by delivering proven actives gradually over time. This technology also maximizes the active material left behind to get you results as fast as possible. In addition, each product contains MultiSal Neolipids™ --- an advanced skin health complex that provides foundational lipids for skin barrier repair.
Eptex Acne Wash is a benzoyl peroxide wash that cleans your skin and provides benzoyl peroxide in a form that penetrates into the follicle and helps stop bacteria from growing and causing acne. It's different from other benzoyl peroxide acne washes because it targets the source of acne-causing bacteria with a unique sub-micron encapsulation system, enabling 4.5% benzoyl peroxide to be delivered deep into the follicle where bacteria reside.
It works through exfoliation, which is the removal of the dead skin cells from the epidermis, the top layer of the skin. Exfoliation deeply cleanses the skin, dislodging buildup in the pores and helping to break up whiteheads. It also helps to smooth and refine the skin’s texture. Eptex Controlled Release Acne Relief Lotion contains essential lipids that help keep your skin’s natural barrier healthy, while its patented delivery system slowly releases these ingredients over time, making it appropriate even for sensitive skin.

Eptex acne products are a 2-part, complete approach designed to be used together.
Wash with a unique 4.5% benzoyl peroxide ---Eptex Acne Wash should be used to cleanse the skin and allow the Benzoyl Peroxide to get into pores. How does it do this? The Intelli-Target Technology makes the benzoyl peroxide, which is normally a very large molecule that can only sit on top of the skin, very small, around 0.1 to 1.0 microns. Therefore, it can readily enter the follicle where it can eradicate the acne-causing bacteria at the source.
Exfoliate with controlled-release salicylic acid--- use Eptex Acne Relief Lotion to gently exfoliate your skin unblocking the pores while keeping it well hydrated and at a safe pH. Eptex Acne Relief Lotion also contains ingredients that effectively keep the skin moisturized, minimizing the most frequent complaint with salicylic acid products.
You can use the products together or separately. The Eptex acne products were designed to work together to maximize results.
