Benzoyl Peroxide in the EU

Recommended Posts

Have heard a couple of stories regards Benzoyl Peroxide products in the EU.  

1) The EU stopped allowing the import of some of the active ingredients required to stop counterfeit products coming into the EU.  This meant no more Quinoderm or Panoxyl in any strength.  Acnecide is available but only to 5%.  It used to be possible to get Quinoderm in 5 and 10% options also same with Panoxyl.

2) Long term Benzoyl Peroxide use can cause cancer therefore no longer available in 10% strength.  I asked my GP if they can prescribe but they can only offer 3% and 5% .  What's happened to the 10% option?

What happens after Brexit, can I expect Quinoderm to be available again?

Thanks in advance.
