Jan Marini Skin Research Benzoyl Peroxide 10% strength is the medication of choice for treating acne. Benzoyl Peroxide is recognized by the American Academy of Dermatology to significantly reduce the presence of P acne bacteria (the bacteria believed to play a primary role in the inflammatory aspect of the acne process). Many physicians and researchers believe that Benzoyl Peroxide, used in conjunction with Glycolic Acid, is a potent tool to achieve dramatic clearing of acne lesions and prevent changes within the follicle associated with the acne process. This highly micronized formula has a soft emollient consistency.
Begin by applying once daily only, preferably in the evening to affected areas, not just individual lesion. Apply BPO after the application of all other products. Keep away from eye area. Unless acne is severe, it is generally recommended to begin with the 5% strength in the evening and increase usage to morning as well, if necessary. As skin acclimates, strength may be increased to BPO 10%. Benefits are further enhanced when used in conjunction with Bioglycolic products.
During the first 1 to 2 weeks of usage, it is not unusual to experience dryness, flaking and increased irritation. Generally, this period of acclimation is brief and can be reasonably managed by limiting frequency of exposure.
Benzoyl Peroxide 10%, Deionized Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Glycerine, Butylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

This product is good at preventing acne and has smoothed my skin somewhat. However, the texture is grainy, so I do not use it under makeup, only at night.
