ABOUT BENZOYL PEROXIDE 4% COMPONENT

Acne is the common cause of spots. Most people with acne are aged between 12 and 25, but some older and younger people are affected too. Small sebaceous glands lie just under your skin surface and make an oil (sebum) that keeps your skin supple and smooth. Tiny pores on your skin allow the sebum to come on to the surface of your skin. In acne, some of these pores become blocked, causing small pimples, blackheads and whiteheads.

Brevoxyl 4 Percent Benzoyl peroxide has three actions – it kills germs (bacteria), it reduces inflammation and it helps to unplug blocked pores. You can buy Brevoxyl 4 precent benzoyl peroxide without a prescription at okdermo skin care store. It comes in different brand names and strengths – there is a 2.5%, 4%, 5% and 10% strength.

Benzoyl peroxide 4% is also available in combination preparations used for acne. It can be combined with an antibiotic component called clindamycin (brand name Duac® Once Daily), or with another medicine used for acne, called adapalene (brand name Epiduo®). Both of these preparations should be used as directed by the dermatologist.
