If you consider,

BP 2.5% (4 oz) = BP 10% (1 oz)

You can always reduce the % concentration of BP by diluting it with lotion. So the 2.5% BP ain't all that much of a bargain.

Anyone figure this out????!!!!

The only bargain would be to market the BP gel in 32 oz sizes or half-gallon jugs!

You can't equate it like that. I doubt any 10% benzoyl peroxide mixed with "lotion" is going to be as good as bp gel is.

yeah, why don't you try that and let us know how it works out. Heck, if you really get no burning, peeling, excessive darkening and all the other pitfalls of 10% BP when using that, let us know. And then, finding a good non-comedogenic lotion to mix w/the BP could also cost a lot of additional cash. Either way, let us know how it works out!

PS: The only way a 32 oz BP is a bargain is if it's not sold @ (4 x $8.5). Otherwise, you might as well just buy four.

4 oz doesn't adequately cover the entire body and face.

It lasts 2 weeks for ME! razz.gif

Heck, those 1 oz tubes don't do a damn thing!

I am recommending that 32 oz be an appropriate size to cover the ENTIRE BODY AND FACE.

In fact, I've never seen a 2.5% marketed out there. Only a 5%!

It's time to get the 32 oz pump bottles out there for REAL ACNE people! They also need to make acne body lotion!

For your body........... didn't Dan already recommend using 10% BP on your body skin since it is a lot less senstive than your face? You've been wasting the BP gel. Again, dilute your BP and let us know how it works out -- for your face. There's lots of 10% BP on the market. If it truly works out, I know I for one will probably start buying the other ones! Also, I don't know about using aloe on my face, I never have.

BTW,

you can dilute by mixing it in aloe to reduce the concentration of 10% BP!   razz.gif
