Buying Benzoyl Peroxide in Berlin, Germany.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm moving to Germany in the next few weeks and wanted to know if it's possible to buy Benzoyl Peroxide there. I've been using Dan's regime (Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar + BP) for the past 4 years and it's cured my extreme acne.

As a cleanser I use Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar which can't see being too hard to find an alternative it's finding BP that I'm worried about.

I did a search for Germany in International Regimen Supplies but it mostly brings up old threads with mixed results.

One thread from 2006 shows you can get it as Sanoxit 2,5% but in another thread there's a post that BP is banned in the european union.

Does anybody in Berlin/Germany know if or where I can buy Benzoyl Peroxide? or should I try to bring over enough to last me a few years from Canada when I move?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply Lumitimi. That is great news for me.

What do you use as a soap/cleanser before putting on the benzoyl peroxide?

Have you ever seen this one "Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar" in a pharmacy?

It's a bit expensive but works great for me.

The Imex Syndet bar sounds like what I'm looking for. The cetaphil bar can be really drying too, but my skin is used to it.

Thanks for the help.

I suggest you use Panoxyl 2.5 % for your BP treatment.

The Zeniac products that Lumitimi mentioned contain AHA and are not suitable for sensitive skin!

Have a good stay!

Hey there,

I've just moved from Canada to Germany as well and haven't been able to find any Benzoyl Peroxide products (even the names listed here). Have you found a pharmacy that carries them?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you can't get BP over the counter here in Germany. I always had to go to the derm to get a prescription. But thats fine if you have health insurance, you don't have to pay for the visit or for the presc. ;)
