WHY IS IT COMPELLING?
• A highly effective antibacterial lotion for the treatment of acne and acne-prone skin
• Benzoyl peroxide (BPO) assists by killing acne causing bacteria (p. acnes bacteria) and helping to clear dead skin and oil from pores.
• Ultra-micronized benzoyl peroxide for increased penetration and efficacy in treating even the most stubborn acne without the dryness or irritation that is common with many BPO solutions
• Best used preventatively in acne prone areas to prevent breakouts from occurring
Benzoyl Peroxide 5%
Cleanse the skin thoroughly before applying medication. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a physician. If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day. If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a physician.
Teen girls tend to start with the 5% Lotion and work their way up to the 10% Lotion if needed.
Teen boys tend to start with the 10% Lotion.
