any acne treatments that don't contain BP?

=;

I have been using 10% benzol perozide for years and it works quite well. But at the same time my clothes have been sporadically getting bleach stains on them. I have been adviced that it might be the BP so I have stopped using it for the last few weeks. My skin is much worse now. Probably describe it as moderate acne.

Are there any strong treatments with out BP? I live in England.

Yes, there's salicylic acid--but in most cases is not as effective as BP. Are you using a BP face wash or applying it like lotion? Maybe you could just buy a lot of white clothes? =P~

Candleladd...it's definitely the BP bleaching your clothes. Like Halide says you could always wear a white-shirt underneath.

Or...you can always purchase the wash-away type BP. It's pretty effective.

That's possible. What % BP is it?

Many others here use C&C.

I hardly ever used it on my body - its just my face. Mind you the odd time I have done might be when it stains. Its 10% so quite strong. You reckon the wash away ones wouldn't stain, I'll try that. I looked at the other spot creme I've been using and it contained salicylic acid, but it dosen't help. Whats C&C - is that a wash?

BP wash is even more dangerous with bleaching, in my opinion... :-({|=

I think a gel/lotion/cream is safer due to it staying on your face, but a wash will drip onto your shirt and stuff if you're not careful. or use it naked smile.gif

Haven't heard of these - not sure if you can get them in England?
