- Brand: Acne.Org
Travel-size, lasts 12-13 days. 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.
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.
How does benzoyl peroxide work?
Whether we are talking about the face or the body, acne problems start the same way. For reasons no one completely understands, a pore becomes clogged, trapping skin oil that normally drains to the surface. Inside skin oil lives acne bacteria, which multiplies in the clogged pore, and voila, a zit is born.
Acne treatments usually target one of the two phases of a blemish’s life cycle, whereas benzoyl peroxide likely targets both:
- Preventing the initial clogged pore: Benzoyl peroxide is a drying and peeling agent, unclogging pores and preventing new clogged pores.
- Killing acne bacteria: Out of any over-the-counter or prescription medication on the market, benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria the best. Studies show benzoyl peroxide kills over 99% of acne bacteria within minutes.
One more benefit of benzoyl peroxide that is still not completely understood is how it dramatically calms the skin and improves the overall complexion. You’ll notice after you use Acne.org Treatment for a few weeks that your complexion will transform from red and irritated to balanced, even-toned, and healthy looking.
To sum it all up, when you use enough 2.5% benzoyl peroxide, especially pharmaceutical-grade benzoyl peroxide, in the right way as outlined in The Acne.org Regimen, it’s quite simply stronger than acne, and will leave your skin clear, balanced, and healthy.
