Frequently Asked Questions

Does it cost anything?

No, this is simply a chance to try Riversol. It is completely free with no strings attached.

What else can I use with it?

We would suggest using the product after cleansing, and before a moisturizer. The selection of each would vary depending on skin type. A 4% Glycolic Peel and sunscreen would be excellent additions to any acne routine.

Why 0.6% salicylic acid?

This amount is required to acidify the base formulation and help clear some acne pimples in the process with mild exfoliation. 0.6% salicylic won't be overly drying on the skin, which is beneficial for acne patients. Salicylic acid is keratolytic. It helps open the acne pores, which can help to control breakouts. However, too much can irritate and peel the skin excessively.

Does it work for both adult and teen acne?

This acne treatment is suitable for anyone with mild/moderate inflammatory acne.

Will this work with "maskne" caused by wearing a face mask constantly?

Yes, it will help with acne mechanica, aka "maskne". This type of acne is generally caused by pore occlusion and irritation of the skin from physical pressure. Anyone experiencing "maskne" or acne mechanica should cleanse the skin well and use a moisturizer before masking (20 minutes before). These steps will help reduce the acne-inducing irritation that masks can cause.

Will this help control my acne rosacea?

The combined formulations in this product can cause short and mild vasodilation. Theoretically, this can exacerbate rosacea symptoms. We don't recommend the Riversol acne treatment for acne rosacea at this time.

Will this dry out my skin?

It shouldn't. The salicylic acid content at 0.6% is a safe concentration for skin prone to dryness. Additionally, the patented base formulation contains hydrating ingredients.

Where does it go in your routine?

We would suggest: if you're using a serum, we would suggest to use the acne treatment right after the serum. If your primary skin concern is acne, skip the serum and use the treatment right after cleansing.

Can it be used with / is it recommended with Roaccutane (Isotretinoin)?

Yes.
