SkinMedica has launched NeoBenz Micro Wash (benzoyl peroxide, 7%), a prescription benzoyl peroxide wash product for the treatment of mild to moderate acne vulgaris.  NeoBenz Micro Wash uses the MICROSPONGE delivery system, which gradually releases entrapped benzoyl peroxide from porous microspheres onto the skin throughout the day.

A randomized, investigator-blinded trial comparing the tolerability of NeoBenz Micro Wash with a non-medicated gentle cleansing wash showed that both treatment groups exhibited excellent local cutaneous tolerability.  There were no statistical differences between the two groups for erythema, dryness/scaling, burning/stinging, or pruritus.

The NeoBenz Micro family of products also includes NeoBenz Micro Cream and NeoBenz Micro SD.
