What is Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Benziturn Gel
Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Benziturn-10 Gel is an acne medication with a unique formula that goes to work immediately, releasing the medicine deep into the pores where pimples start. This maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide acne medication is the same prescription formula recommended by doctors.
Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Benziturn-10 Gel is a topical antibacterial treatment for mild to moderate non-inflammatory forms of acne vulgaris, as part of a daily cleansing routine for the face. Acne is a common skin condition characterized by pimples (papules), spots or whiteheads (pustules) and blackheads (comedones) on the face, chest or back. Benziturn-10 Gel is used to treat the symptoms of acne and help prevent new acne lesions by preventing the spread of bacterial infection that contributes to their formation, which helps clear up an outbreak of acne.
How does Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Benziturn Gel work?
Benziturn-10 Gel contains benzoyl peroxide 10 percent, a potent broad-spectrum antimicrobial with activity particularly against Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that contribute to the formation of acne skin lesions. P acne is present in affected hair follicles since it normally exists on the skin without causing any problems, living on fatty acids in the sebum (oil) secreted by the sebaceous glands (oil-producing glands in hair follicles of the skin). However, overproduction of sebum causes the pores of the skin to become blocked and allows the spread of the bacteria and this is how the pimples, whiteheads, and blackheads (comedones) of acne form.
Treating Acne with Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Benziturn Gel
Benzoyl peroxide in Benziturn-10 Gel has comedolytic properties which inhibits the formation of comedones and also keratolytic activity, which means that it acts as a peeling agent, increasing skin turnover by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinization and cornification) and promoting the shedding of old hardened skin cells, allowing new skin cells to take their place. Benzoyl peroxide in Benziturn-10 Gel also has sebostatic properties, due to the presence of acrylates copolymer beads that control excess sebum production, preventing excessive sebum production associated with acne; and also contain glycerin, which is a humectant that reduces moisture loss from the skin. By preventing the spread of infection and unclogging pores, Benzoyl Peroxide 10% helps reduce the existing skin lesions and prevents acne from spreading, while at the same time helping with the healing process.
