An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Benzoyl Peroxide

image Benzoyl Peroxide

Benzoyl Peroxide is the main active ingredient of a number of treatments for spots and acne. Such treatments are typically available in gel or cream form and are applied directly to the affected areas. Benzoyl peroxide works by oxidising the skin, which helps to peel away the outer layer of spots and to clear the pores of dead skin. In addition, benzoyl peroxide kills bacteria, which is a root cause of inflammation and redness associated with spots and acne.

Products containing Benzoyl Peroxide

Most of the best spot and acne treatments contain Benzoyl Peroxide. This includes Quinoderm and Benzoyl Peroxide. Our complete list of benzoyl peroxide gels, creams, washes and lotions is shown further down this page.

The main exception to this is Freederm Gel, which contains nicotinamide rather than benzoyl peroxide. Nicotinamide works by reducing inflammation. This makes Freederm Gel suitable for red, inflamed spots. Of course, benzoyl peroxide is also suitable for red, inflamed spots.
