Sodium Sulfacetamide the same thing as BP?

Recommended Posts

Does Sodium Sulfacetamide have pretty much the same effect as Benzoyl Peroxide? According to Dan's site, I think it does...but I'm not sure.

Well if by "have the same effect" you mean that they both fight acne, then yes, but they are really 2 different treatments. This post doesn't really make much sense to me. :think:

Here's what I mean.

Dan's description of what Sodium Sulfacetamide does: "Sodium Sulfacetamide curbs the growth of P. Acnes, the bacteria that causes acne."

Dan's description of what Benzoyl Peroxide does: "Benzoyl peroxide kills P. Acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. "

So...does that mean they have the same effect (The killing of the acne-causing bacteria)?
