Other BPO treatments have an insoluble micro and macro crystals which are too big to penetrate deep to the hair follicle so they just sit on the surface of the skin. However clenziderm contains a solubilized form of 5% BPO which is designed to penetrate deep into the follicle and treat acne at the root.
