Hydrogen Peroxide And Salicylic Acid

Recommended Posts

Most of the newer Clearasil Ultra Range uses Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and Salicylic acid (SA). For some wierd reason the cream in states doesn't and uses BP whereas here in UK it uses what most of the rest of the range use.

In states u can use the following instead of cream which does have SA and H2O2 ...

These are also available in UK.

In studies H2O2 had far less irritation and seems OK along side SA, whereas BP has more irritation probs cos of Benzoic Acid by product.

When SA can be combined with a peroxide its very effective.

Dan uses an AHA in his moisturizer to help exfoliation, however SA (A BHA) gets right into the pore.

I've swapped from Dans regimen to this using the wipes from today and will let you know how it goes a month or 2 down the line.

I wondered if anyone else here in UK has used this?
