The exact method of action of benzoyl peroxide in acne vulgaris is not known. Benzoyl peroxide is an antibacterial agent with demonstrated activity against
Propionibacterium acnes. This action, combined with the mild keratolytic effect of benzoyl peroxide is believed to be responsible for its usefulness in acne.
Benzoyl peroxide is absorbed by the skin where it is metabolized to benzoic acid and excreted as benzoate in the urine.

Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Creamy Wash and Benzoyl Peroxide 8% Creamy Wash are indicated for use in the topical treatment of mild to moderate acne
vulgaris. Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Creamy Wash or Benzoyl Peroxide 8% Creamy Wash may be used as an adjunct in acne treatment regimens including
antibiotics, retinoic acid products, and sulfur/salicylic acid containing preparations.

Benzoyl Peroxide 4% Creamy Wash and Benzoyl Peroxide B% Creamy Wash should not be used in patients who have shown hypersensitivity to benzoyl peroxide or to any of the other ingredients in the product

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility - Based upon all available evidence benzoyl peroxide is not considered to be a carcinogen.
However, data from a study using mice known to be highly susceptible to cancer suggest that benzoyl peroxide acts as a tumor promoter. The clinical significance of the lindings is not known.

Pregnancy: Category C - Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with benzoyl peroxide. II is also not known whether benzoyl peroxide can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Benzoyl peroxide should be used by a pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

Nursing Mothers - II is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be
exercised when benzoyl peroxide is administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use - Safety and effectiveness in children below the age of 12 have not been established.

Contact sensitization reactions are associated with the use of topical benzoyl peroxide products and may be expected to occur in 10 to 25 of 1000 patients. The most frequent adverse reactions associated with benzoyl peroxide use are excessive erythema and peeling which may be expected to occur in 5 of 100 patients. Excessive erythema and peeling most frequently appear during the initial phase of drug use and may normally be controlled by reducing frequency of use.
