Does benzoyl peroxide bleach or degrade plastic glasses?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

For people who wear glasses — have you found that the Regimen (specifically, the benzoyl peroxide) causes the plastic in your glasses to look bad or change color over time? 

I just got some new plastic glasses from Warby Parker and I'm trying to determine the risk of wearing them after doing the Regimin.

EDIT: I'm specifically wondering about the type of glasses where the plastic frame sits right on your note (not the kind with the two little pads connected to a metal frame).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I haven't personally experienced this, but I don't see why not - the stuff is powerful! It bleaches pillowcases and towels; I don't see why it couldn't do the same to something that sits on your face for an extended period of time.

Thanks @klessard ! That's what I'm thinking too... unless someone knows otherwise, I think I should play it safe and avoid wearing my glasses at night when I do the Treatment. I don't usually use benzoyl peroxide in the morning anyway. I appreciate your response!
