Benzoyl Peroxide Foaming Cleanser - Rosacea Friendly
Most benzoyl peroxide cleansers and treatments are not good for any form of rosacea. The concentration is usually too high (5% to 10%), it is not micronized so it irritates the superficial layers of the skin, inactive ingredients usually include lactic acid or alcohol... it's just not worth the risk.
Ive tried the new Versafoam 2.5% Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide Foaming Cleanser by MaxClarity, and I love it. Versafoam is a gentle foam that helps clear out pores and deliver the active ingredients deep into the skin for maximum effectiveness. Plus, micronized benzoyl peroxide penetrates more effectively and thus you only need a low concentration.
For rosacea sufferers with papules and pustules OR acne, this new product is worth a try. There are three products in the set. I would steer clear of the astringent with salicylic acid.
This is a great product for rosacea sufferers with hyper-sensitive skin.
