Will storing Benzoyl Peroxide in a clear plastic container ruin it when exposed to sunlight?

Recommended Posts

Hey fam

I'm a real advocate for acne.org products - they're fantastic! When I travel I like to take the Benzoyl Peroxide with me in a 100ml pump bottle. The one I have right now is made of clear PET and it lets light shine in on the cream.

If I expose the product to light for a few weeks will it loose efficacy? Is it best to keep the Benzoyl Peroxide in an opaque container like it is packaged with? Do these rules apply to the cleanser, moisturiser and AHA+ too?

Cheers legends :smileys_n_people_114:


I believe I might have found an answer here.


Keep in a cool place in isolation, out of the sunlight and away from heat.

It would seem sunlight can do stuff to it - I wonder how much the acne.org bottles block out :smileys_n_people_38:. I hope someone will find this information helpful...
