An effective cleanser for oily or combination skin, contains 3% benzoyl peroxide. Suppresses acne causing bacteria.
Once on the skin, benzoyl peroxide decomposes into benzoic acid and oxygen. Benzoic acid stimulates the process of cell renewal, due to which keratinized scales are removed from the surface of the epidermis, which prevent the proper secretion of sebum.
The basis of the effectiveness of this substance against acne is the destruction of Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, which, as you might guess from the name, provoke rashes on the skin. And it is oxygen that kills them – one of the decomposition products of benzoyl peroxide.
With prolonged use, cosmetics with benzoyl peroxide can greatly reduce the number of rashes and prevent the appearance of new ones, and at the same time even out skin tone and relief.
