Can 10% BP be diluted to 2.5%

Recommended Posts

10% is all i have left at the moment, and my city seems to be sold out entirely of 2.5%

Will 10% really inflame my face?

Can i dilute it by mixing it in my palm with some moisteurizer and jojoba oil?

Hi John,

I wouldn't do this.

BP has to be formulated very particularly in order to be effective and at the right percentage for efficacy. If you tried to dilute it, I just don't think it would work well.

Can you find 5% anywhere? If so, you can use that in a pinch.

Here's more info on 10% vs 2.5%: http://www.acne.org/faq.html#higherpercentagebp

Hope that helps.
