SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of Proactiv®, America's No. 1 acne system, announce the debut of X Out™, a Wash-In Treatment designed specifically for teens. The new, one-step X Out™ acne treatment, is a Wash-In delivery system, designed to wash powerful, acne fighting medicine into the pores and leave it behind to treat blemishes and help kill the bacteria that causes breakouts.  X Out™ helps banish existing pimples while nourishing skin with a unique moisturizing complex that helps leave the skin feeling smooth and looking healthy. And because it's tailored to today's digital- savvy teens, X Out™ is the first acne brand with its own entertainment channel to help teens time the suggested two minute wash time.  The X Out™ Wash-In Treatment is exclusively available at or by calling (800) 996-1971.

"Proactiv has been a leader in acne prevention and treatment for more than 15 years," said Seth Radwell, Chief Marketing Officer of Guthy-Renker, LLC, the company that markets Proactiv®.  "We recognized that we saw an unmet need in the skincare market – some teens need a simple, one-step solution that makes it easy for them to get proven acne treating medicine into their pores to fight acne.  Proactiv® revolutionized how acne was treated with the introduction of the 3-step system, and, now with the introduction of X Out™ it brings the next big thing - an easy to use Wash-In treatment that addresses the needs of some teens' who won't or can't use a multi-step system."  

No more hassle, no more drama – X Out™ incorporates a built-in compliance measure to help teens recognize the recommended two minute wash time for best results and to achieve clear skin.  Each bottle of X Out™ Wash-In Treatment has a QR code that teens can scan with their Smartphones to be automatically directed to the X OutDaily Distraction (, where a new two-minute video will be available each day.  Whether it's a video full of  fashion tips, sports tricks or straight-up comedy, X Out™ teens will be ahead of the class, with continuously updated video content selected just for them, exclusive access to the Daily Distraction and most importantly, blemish-free skin!

The X Out™ Wash-In Treatment contains the proven acne fighting power of benzoyl peroxide (8.5%) along with smooth beads to help exfoliate dead skin cells.  X Out™ is dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic and is paraben and sulfate-free, so it's suitable for all skin types.  X Out™ can also be used as a spot treatment by dabbing a small amount on a pimple, or as a 10-minute treatment mask.
