Benzoyl peroxide products are employed for the treatment of mild to moderate acne. In the context of acne treatment, benzoyl peroxide functions by diminishing the presence of acne-causing bacteria and inducing dryness and peeling of the skin. Certain brands of benzoyl peroxide are also utilized in the treatment of a specific skin condition known as rosacea.

In cases of rosacea, benzoyl peroxide may assist in alleviating symptoms such as pimples and bumps on the face.

Uses and Dosage

Benzoyl peroxide is available in cleansing liquid or bar, lotion, cream, and gel formulations for application on the skin.
