Benzoyl peroxide (BPO)

Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) is one of the best topical treatments for acne and prevents bacterial resistance.

Benzoyl peroxide (BPO)

BPO is one of the best first-line antimicrobial agents used to treat mild-to-moderate acne.


BPO has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and keratolytic properties.


After BPO is broken down into benzoic acid and hydrogen peroxide, this topical reduces C. acnes concentration by generating free oxygen radicals.


The beauty of BPO is that it prevents microbial resistance. 


BPO is applied once daily, and acne improvement may occur as soon as five days. 


Combining benzoyl peroxide with other agents, such as topical retinoids or antibiotics, increases its effectiveness in treating acne.
