This 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment is gel-based so it goes on clear and spreads easily. It won't "clump up" with moisturizers, and won't turn white when you perspire. It is pharmaceutical grade, pH-balanced, and formulated especially for use with The Acne.org Regimen. Studies show that 2.5% benzoyl peroxide works as well as 10% solutions, without the excessive dryness and irritation. Fragrance-free and dye-free. It contains 120 pumps.
Why 2.5% strength?
Several studies show that 2.5% benzoyl peroxide clears acne just as well as 10% solutions. Importantly, it also produces much less irritation. This is important for two reasons:
- Irritation of the skin can lead to more acne. It is very important to reduce irritation when it comes to acne-prone skin.
- Because 2.5% dries the skin less than 10% benzoyl peroxide, using a 2.5% benzoyl peroxide makes a daily benzoyl peroxide regimen sustainable because it doesn’t overdry the skin.
