Bencort Lotion - Clinical Pharmacology
to be effective against P. acnes. The antibacterial action of benzoyl peroxide is believed
to be due to the release of reactive oxygen species. Benzoyl peroxide has a keratolytic
effect which may contribute to its efficacy. Benzoyl peroxide has been shown to be
absorbed by the skin where it is converted into benzoic acid.
Hydrocortisone shares the actions of other topical corticosteroids and are used for their
anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictive actions.
