Open Letter To Dan

Hello Dan,

Many years ago your website taught my that benxoyl peroxide is the key to stopping my acne, thank you for that.

As you may of already heard, Glaxosmithkline has discontinued Panoxyl, the top dog in the UK for benxoyl peroxide.

In my opinion, you should set up Google advertisements targeted at the UK for search terms such as "panoxyl alternatives" etc, you could get the whole market. The only other alternative is Quinoderm, which sucks because it has potassium hydroxyquinoline sulphate which is not necessary and burns the skin.

Have you thought about having third parties shipping out stock for you in high demand countries to lower and improve shipping time and cost?

Also, although a lot of your literature suggests clinical research shows 2.5% BP is mostly as effective as 10%, through unfortunate trial and error and anecdotal evidence I have to say 10% keeps my spotless, 5% slightly less so and 2.5% even further less so. With no other option, I still will need to buy your 2.5% because its the best product available right now.

Will you ever offer 5% and 10% products?

A massive thank you for improving my quality of life. The greatest of respect to you sir.

Oh no, I didn't know that about panoxyl. I'm thinking of not taking up my accutane prescription and just sticking to self-medicating with BP, due to toxicity/side effect worries.

I have bought it at my local chemist in the past but have a tube of Dan's still in use at the moment - good job it comes in a big tube as shipping really hikes up the cost!

Think the Oxy one is any good? I can't see what the % of BP is.

There's Brevoxyl @ 4%

Panoxyl 10% wash?

I wonder why they have stopped making it? Reason to be worried?

btw, I spoke to my dr yesterday, although they can't get plain BP any more, they still have BP & clindamycin, so your GP may be able to prescribe that for you.

Quinoderm is over the counter at 2.5%, 5% and 10%
