Does Benzoyl Peroxide Kill Staphylococcus Aureus?

19 July 2014 - 12:44 PM

Hi (Dan)


I'm trying to find out whether benzoyl peroxide kills Staphylococcus aureus and epidermidis. It's not particularly easy or obvious from searching Google. Just wondering if anyone on here (perhaps Dan) has read any studies which conclusively answer this question?


We all know that Benzoyl Peroxide effectively kills the acne bacteria Propionibacterium acnes, but Staphylococcus is also an acne causing bacteria and plays a particularly important role in the formation of pustules and inflammation.



Important - Uk Users Of Acne.org Products

07 October 2013 - 12:09 PM



If anyone is interested the UK distributor of Acne.org products has just been told by Acne.org to stop re-selling Dan's products.


These products were available on ebay for reasonable prices but with the added benefit of 2 day delivery, instead of "God knows how long, at your own risk, delayed at customs delivery" of around 20 days.


If your interested in the cause there is a petition to get Acne.org to allow the UK seller to continue here;



The link to the UK seller is below - or can be found by searching for "Acne.org" on Ebay.co.uk.




Does Dan Actually Suffer From Acne?

03 October 2013 - 12:35 PM

I appreciate this might go unanswered, but I had a brainwave and just want to throw this out there.


Does Dan actually suffer from Acne Vulgaris anymore?


I know when he stops using BP he gets little red spots, but that doesn't necessarily equate to Acne Vulgaris. Acne Vulgaris is defined by the presence of comedones. No comedones = no Acne Vulgaris.


Correct me if I am wrong - and I am happy to be wrong - but Dan's "Acne" affects his chin and cheeks?


I put it to you that what Dan is actually experiencing is Pseudofolliculitis barbae?


For the avoidance of doubt, PFB is caused by shaving and abstaining from shaving is curative, (Kligman, 1993).

Hello Bryan

As the resident guru on sebum production of the boards, I was wondering whether in your extensive readings and wisdom about acne, if you had come across any therapeutic agents other than oral isotretinoin capable of clearing acne as effectively as oral isotretinoin in males?
