What does benzoyl peroxide treat?
Benzoyl peroxide (BPO) kills bacteria on the skin. It also helps to unclog pores by removing the dead skin that causes blockages. BPO treats acne and helps to prevent new spots. It works best when used regularly.
Can I use benzoyl peroxide with retionol?
Do not use benzoyl peroxide (BPO) and retinol at the same time. When used together bezoyl peroxide and retinol deactivate one another.
How long does it take to start seeing results?
You should begin to see improvement in your acne within 2-4 days. It can take 30-60 days for optimal results. Keep using the BPO bar at regular intervals for at least 60 days. The bar can be used to treat acne anywhere on your body.
Does BPO dry the skin?
Yes. Better than half of our users report dry skin. Around 4 in 10 report flaking, peeling, irritation, and itch skin. You'll have a phase where your skin looks awful and feels pretty bad. BPO will make your skin dry, red, and scaly for a bit. Nearly everyone that uses BPO experiences the dryness phase. Don't let irritation and dryness reduce treatment adherence. If you stick with using BPO you'll get results. To combat the dryness, use a good oil-free moisturizer. Never use anything gritty or abrasive. Avoid scrubbing. And scale back to once a day or every other day when needed. Dryness and peeling are at their worst in the first 3 weeks of use.
Can I use Benzoyl Peroxide & Salicylic Acid together at the same time?
The main difference between benzoyl peroxide (BPO) and salicylic acid is that benzoyl peroxide has antibacterial properties, while salicylic acid doesn't. Both BPO and salicylic acid bars can be used in rotation (or at the same time). Salicylic acid works best for blackheads and whiteheads (e.g. clogged pores). Most folks use BPO to gain control over severe acne outbreaks and then switch to salicylic acid for daily maintenance once the acne is more manageable. If using both actives together in rotation, use with caution. The combination can be super drying. Try not to use too many products at the same time. You need to give the redness and irritation time to heal (10-14 days).
It is not permissible to manufacture a bar with both BPO and salicylic acid. If you would like to experiment with using both active ingredients, you'll need to buy both bar types.
