Benzoyl Peroxide 5%
5% Ultra-micronized benzoyl peroxide lotion to clear both existing and future acne lesions by killing acne causing bacteria in the skin
Benzoyl Peroxide 5% Lotion contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) - a very effective antibacterial lotion for the treatment of acne and acne-prone skin. This micronized benzoyl peroxide solution assists by killing acne causing bacteria (p. acnes bacteria) and helping to clear dead skin and oil from pores. Jan Marini Skin Research uses ultra-micronized BPO to get even greater penetration into the skin while minimizing sensitivity and irritation common with many benzoyl peroxide solutions. This benzoyl peroxide 5% cream is suitable for all skin types.
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.
Please note: Benzoyl Peroxide may cause bleaching of fabrics.
