Benzoyl peroxide (BP) is both an anti-bacterial and exfoliant that works by loosening dead skin cells that are stuck within the follicle. It also releases oxygen within the follicle to kill bacteria, reducing inflammation. BP comes in strengths of 2.5%-10%, depending on the severity of acne being treated and skin sensitivity. Because it doubles as an exfoliant and potent anti-bacterial, it’s rare that acne clears up without BP. BP remains active for up to 4 hours after applied to the skin.
