Benzoyl peroxide (BPO) is an organic compound in the peroxide family. It consists of two benzoyl groups bridged by a peroxide link. It is one of the most important organic peroxides in terms of applications. In medicine, benzoyl peroxide is used as a topical treatment for acne, either in combination with antibiotics or as a single agent. These products are available over-the-counter or by prescription in gels, creams or liquids at concentrations of 2.5%, 5% or 10%. Benzoyl peroxide is also used for bleaching flour or hair, teeth whitening, for cross-linking polyester resins, and many other chemical uses. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic health system.

- IUPAC Name
- benzoyl benzenecarboperoxoate
Benzoyl peroxide is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate acne vulgaris and rosacea. Combined with other agents, it may be used in the treatment of more severe acne.
- Associated Conditions
Benzoyl peroxide acts as an antibacterial, irritant, keratolytic, comedolytic, and anti-inflammatory agent when applied topically to the human epithelium.
- Mechanism of action
Benzoyl peroxide decomposes to release oxygen after topical application. This oxygen acts as a bactericidal agent towards Proprionibacterium acnes, the bacteria present in acne vulgaris. Benzoyl peroxide also increases the turnover rate of epithelial cells, thereby peeling the skin and promoting the resolution of comedones.
Benzoyl peroxide is absorbed percutaneously into the dermal layer of the epithelium. It is then metabolized to benzoic acid which can be absorbed systemically. There is no systemic absorption of benzoyl peroxide itself.
- Volume of distribution
Benzoyl peroxide is not absorbed or distributed systemically after topical application.
- Protein binding
Benzoyl peroxide does not undergo protein binding as it is does not enter systemic circulation after topical application.
Benzoyl peroxide undergoes metabolism by keratinocytes in the epidermis. Initially, the peroxide bond is cleaved to form benzoyloxyl radicals. It is thought this reaction may be copper-catalyzed. The benzoyloxyl radicals may then fragment to form carbon dioxide and a phenyl radical. Alternatively, the radicals may gain a hydrogen atom from biomolecules forming the more stable and primary metabolite, benzoic acid.
- Route of elimination
Renal clearance of the primary metabolite, benzoic acid, is rapid and thought to preclude hepatic conjugation.
- Half life
Benzoyl peroxide is not absorbed into systemic circulation after topical application. Further studies are needed on its half life within the epithelium.
Benzoyl peroxide is not absorbed into systemic circulation after topical application. Its primary metabolite, benzoic acid, is cleared rapidly via renal excretion and hepatic conjugation is thought to be bypassed.
There is no evidence to support carcinogenicity in humans. Benzoyl peroxide may cause contact hypersensitivity, stinging and burning sensations when applied topically. It should not be applied under occlusive dressings due to risk of sensitization. During processing and formulation, exposure to concentrations higher than 12.2 mg/cu may cause irritation to the nose and/or throat.
