Benzoyl Peroxide wash vs Benzoyl Peroxide gel

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a quick question about BP wash vs BP gel. What are your opinions?

What are the differences between the two?

The only thing I can think of is that BP wash only stays for like 2 minutes; then you have to wash it off. On the other hand, gel stays on your face for "longer."

Any comments appreciated.

Moved to the Over-The-Counter Acne Medications board.

That's pretty much it. With a wash, the BP only has a moment to create oxygen and kill off acne bacteria. With a leave-on gel or cream, the BP can stay on your skin for hours, creating oxygen.
