Hi,

 

I'm about to try the regimen but unfortunately in our country here in the Philippines, drugstores here only carry Benzoyl Peroxide 5% (for Benzac-Galderma) and 4% (Pan-Oxyl) that's the only smallest percent here. We don't have 2.5%. Please help!:(

 

 

thank you.

If you're not able to purchase the acne.org treatment you could try the 5% benzac as I am aware of other users that do also and get results from it. The reason Dan recommends 2.5% is because it's just as effective as higher percentages, but doesn't cause as much irritation to the skin.

 

You could use the 5% until you're able to purchase Dan's BP.

Hello Eunice,

 

I am from the Philippines too! Just wanted to tell you I had the same problem when I started. You can try ordering BP from sulit.com.ph. Just search for Benzac AC on the search box and there is one user that will come up. He is a reliable seller and provides good quality BP.

 

Good luck! :)

- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%

Moved to store brand regimen supplies, although nicmic has already given you a good option. It may help others too if they refer to that forum.
