Application Tips

  • Clean the skin thoroughly before applying.
  • Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily.
  • Because too much drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, and then gradually increase to two or three times daily, if needed or as directed by a doctor.
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
  • If going outside, use a sunscreen. Allow benzoyl peroxide to dry and then follow directions in the sunscreen labeling.

Key Ingredients

  • Benzoyl Peroxide (5%) For acne treatment, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has determined the ingredient to be both safe and effective, within certain concentrations, for the self-treatment of mild or occasional acne. These products are available “over-the-counter” (without a prescription), which indicates the ingredient is used in a product as an active ingredient determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be both safe and effective, within certain concentrations.
  • Cucumber Extract is a soothing agent known for its calming and soothing properties. It’s also a skin brightener known to provide a brightening effect, resulting in more even-looking skin. Some ingredients provide immediate benefits via optical diffusion and light reflection, while others provide a more even-looking skin tone over time.

How It Works

Benzoyl peroxide kills acne within the pores and on the surface of the skin.
