So, what is benzoyl peroxide?

Benzoyl peroxide is a powerful ingredient commonly used in skincare products to treat acne. It works by penetrating deep into the pores and reducing the amount of bacteria that causes breakouts. Benzoyl peroxide also helps to reduce inflammation and clear clogged pores, making it an effective treatment for all types of acne. Despite its potency, benzoyl peroxide is generally considered safe for topical use and is available in various strengths depending on the severity of the acne being treated. It is important to follow usage instructions carefully and avoid excessive exposure to sunlight when using benzoyl peroxide, as it can increase skin sensitivity.
