Benzoyl Peroxide (Benzac)

5 posts in this topic

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.

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.
