body can only absorb a limited amount from typical vitamin tablets
or capsules at a given time, and the excess vitamin B5 ends up
getting flushed right out of you. We solve this problem by using
both high-absorbance liquid vitamins and time-released tablets which gradually deliver the B5 over a period
of about 6 hours.

Even the best
internal treatments cannot help you if you're damaging yourself on
the outside. This particular problem typically afflicts men with sensitive skin who irritate their skin
through poor shaving habits. See our page on
advice for men with
sensitive skin. Also, be aware that some other
treatments (such as those that include benzoyl peroxide and/or
salicylic acid) can actually cause sensitive
skin. Note that a similar problem can occur for users who experience
acne along their hairline due to hair gel clogging your pores.

lose weight because of vitamin B5?
only happens with high-dose users, but yes, vitamin B5 can aid your
body in metabolizing more than just skin oil. In large doses it can
sometimes increase your digestive metabolism. This is why some people who

website said that taking vitamin B5 for acne is dangerous...
Simply put, there is absolutely
no scientific evidence for any dangerous side
effects resulting from vitamin B5, even at levels well above our
recommended dose. Unfortunately, some of our competitors have no
problem spreading misinformation to
promote their own products or "acne secrets" ebooks. Some side effects
may cause temporary discomfort, but these do not last long, and it's
medically impossible for B5 to stay in your system and have any
negative long-term effects. Clear5 is especially safe since it does
not require users to mega-dose.
