Benzoyl Peroxide is a Strong Anti-Acne Treatment But is it Safe and How Does it Work?

BEST ACNE TREATMENTS By Sadie Gillam

Benzoyl peroxide (BP) is one of the most important acne fighting ingredients available. It works by preventing and treating both non inflammatory acne, such as blackheads and whiteheads, and also inflammatory acne: your red pimples, pus pimples and painful zits.

Benzoyl peroxide has three main acne fighting actions...

Firstly, it's a very effective exfoliant, it helps remove clogging dead cells that contribute to causing both blackheads and whiteheads. It helps dissolve those clogs of dead cells and oil after they form. It also helps accelerate the healing of inflammatory acne lesions by increasing turnover of the cells on top of the pimples.

Secondly, although Benzoyl peroxide is not an antibiotic it has an antibacterial effect against the acne causing bacteria P. Acne (Propionibacterium acnes).

P. Acne needs an oxygen free environment to multiply and make the enzyme lipase which is how it causes pus pimples, cysts and painful inflammation in the skin. The oxygen that Benzoyl peroxide produces inhibits P. acne's ability to make the lipase that causes inflammatory acne lesions.

Thirdly, the same oxygen rich environment that prevents inflammatory acne also helps in the healing of all types of acne. Dr. Schultz goes into more detail in the video below.
