How is Clear Complexions brand of Benzoyl Peroxide different from drugstore brands?
this is the form in which an appropriate medication is best prescribed. Typical drugstore brands of BPO have creams as their vehicle. Creams are not very occlusive and require preservatives. Our BPO is in the form of a gel, the most suitable vehicle for use in treating acne.
Our brand is of a high grade of purity and highly concentrated. This makes it effective over a wide range of acne conditions. The purer the product, the better the results. The preservatives in drug store brands can retard growth of bacteria while the product sits on the drugstore shelf, but these same ingredients eventually lead to clogging of the pores.
Our BPO is applied thickly to the face as a mask that dries after a few minutes and is left on overnight. This facilitates deep penetration into the pores down to the level of the pilosebaceous unit, a necessary step in getting you cleared up. Drugstore brands are massaged into the skin but lack the ability to significantly reach the deeply embedded pilosebaceous unit.
