Properties

Akun is a benzoyl peroxide based acne cleansing bar. The mechanism of action of benzoyl peroxide is unknown; but it is known that it is decomposed in the skin by cysteine, releasing oxygen free radicals that oxidize bacterial proteins in the sebaceous follicle, thus decreasing the number of bacteria and irritation caused by fatty acids. Its effectiveness in the treatment of acne vulgaris is mainly attributed to its antibacterial activity on Propionibacterium Acnes, the predominant bacterial agent in sebaceous follicles and comedones of acne skin. 5% is absorbed through the skin where it is metabolized to benzoic acid and is then excreted as benzoate in the urine. Akun kills acne-causing bacteria, dries breakouts, aids in skin peeling, and reduces the number of comedones (pimples) that block pores. It also has a mild drying effect, which destroys excess oils, bacteria and dirt that build up above and below the skin. Akun has no effect on the production of sebum or the spread of dead skin cells, it should be used with caution and only in areas affected by acne. It is recommended to start with a low dose (1%), once or twice a day in the affected area and then increase to a higher dose once tolerance to the product develops or as directed by the doctor, without exceeding the number of applications that it preserves. It may take several weeks before symptoms improve.
