Benzoyl Peroxide Gel 10% with Sulfur
10% Benzoyl Peroxide
Our Benzoyl Peroxide 10% water-based gel boosted with Sulfur, used for more severe acne and/or oily skin and acne on the back or chest.
The gel form is more potent than cream forms because it has a better rate of penetration into the follicle. When applied to the surface of the skin, BP penetrates into the follicles and releases oxygen. This oxygen kills the bacteria that cannot survive in the presence of oxygen. Benzoyl Peroxide also has a keratolytic affect on the skin causing it to peel. It is during the peeling process that the follicles are "opened up" and impactions can surface or be extracted.
Suitable for oily and very oily skin types.
Benzoyl Peroxide An anti-bacterial ingredient that functions by forcing peroxide into the follicle where it releases oxygen, killing the anaerobic P. acne bacteria. It also causes peeling deep in the follicle, which loosens acne impactions and prevents new impactions from forming. It controls oil, reduces inflammation and is unsurpassed in treating all grades of acne.
Sulfur The "healing mineral" is required for collagen synthesis and helps to restore dermal integrity. Promotes circulation and decreases inflammation. Has exfoliating properties, helping to shed dead skin cells which can clog pores.
