African Americans & Benzoyl Peroxide?

Recommended Posts

I really want to follow Daniel Kern's Regimen, however I was wondering if Benzoyl Peroxide is safe on African-American skin? I know that Benzoyl Peroxide bleaches clothing and I have even heard that it could bleach dark skin like mines. Have any African-Americans on here had any experiences with it? Does anyone (African-merican or not) know if this topical product is safe to use on my skin?

If not, other suggestions would be helpful.

No, BP won't bleach dark skin. Some BP creams can leave whitish cast, so maybe go with a clear gel like Dan's BP. It won't leave any white residue that way, which would be more noticeable on dark skin.
