Benzoyl peroxide is commonly used to help fight acne and comes in a wide variety of products—from gels and cleansers to spot treatments—aimed at resolving mild to moderate acne breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide creams control acne by targeting and killing the bacteria that forms under your skin and inside pores, as well as helping encourage the removal of dead skin cells and limiting the production of sebum oil that can clog pores.
Finding the right benzoyl peroxide products is essential for effectively treating acne breakouts on your face and body, as well as limiting future acne scars. Our treatments include different benzoyl peroxide concentrations, ranging from 2.5% to 10%, so you can select the formula that is appropriate for your skincare goals and your skin sensitivity.
Benzoyl peroxide is generally safe, but in some people it can cause excessive dryness, redness, irritation, peeling, itching, or burning. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to start with a lower concentration and build up over time as your skin gets used to the products. If you have other skin conditions, such as eczema, consult an esthetician or dermatologist before you start using these products.
