Product Description: Jan Marini Skin Research Benzoyl Peroxide 5% and 10% strengths are the medications 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.Jan Marini Skin Research Benzoyl Peroxide is pharmaceutically produced using formulary guidelines recommended by renowned acne specialists such as James Fulton, M.D. and Albert Kligman, M.D. By using highly micronized benzoyl peroxide and special non-comedongenic emollients, this preparation minimizes dryness and irritation, while providing maximum measurable effectiveness.

Skin Types: Acne or acne prone
Directions For Use: Begin by applying once daily only, preferably in the evening to affected areas, not just each individual lesion. For example, if the patient has acne on the forehead, the medication should be applied to the entire forehead area. Apply Benzoyl Peroxide after the application of all other products. In other words, if the patient is using Bioglycolic Night Cream or a combination of other products, the Benzoyl Peroxide should be applied last. Keep away fom eye area. Unless the 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 10%.
Please Note: During the first 1 to 2 weeks of usage, it is not unusual for the patient to experience dryness, flaking and increased irritation. Generally, this period of acclimation is brief and can be reasonably managed by limiting frequency of exposure.
