Perrigo Benzoyl Peroxide 10 Percent Hydroalcoholic Base Acne Gel

  • Benzoyl peroxide is known to dermatologists as the gold standard of topical acne relief.
  • When applied to acne prone skin, whether as a pimples cream, gel or lotion, it breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and benzoic acid.
  • It is the hydrogen peroxide that is believed to be active in fighting acne.
  • Benzoyl peroxide kills the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria that infects blackheads and whiteheads and turns them into pimples.
  • One advantage over other antibiotics is that bacteria dont develop a resistance to benzoyl peroxide.
  • It also might have some effect in clearing blocked pores.
  • Indicated for use in the topical relief of mild to moderate acne vulgaris.
  • Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 5% may be used as an adjunct in acne relief regimens including antibiotics, retinoic acid products and sulfur/salicylic acid containing preparations.
  • Benzoyl peroxide is an antibacterial agent with demonstrated activity against Propionibacterium acnes.
  • This action, combined with the mild keratolytic effect of benzoyl peroxide is believed to be responsible for its usefulness in acne.
  • Benzoyl peroxide is absorbed by the skin where it is metabolized to benzoic acid and excreted as benzoate in the urine.
