The active ingredient in EPSOLAY cream is BPO. It is an effective antibacterial ingredient that has been used in other products to treat skin conditions like acne. Until now, using BPO to treat rosacea might have caused skin irritation, but microencapsulation technology has helped change that.2,3
WHAT DOES MICROENCAPSULATION DO?
EPSOLAY cream was designed with high-tech microcapsules that control the release of BPO on your skin.1,2
HOW DOES IT HELP?
These microcapsules gradually release BPO to relieve rosacea while remaining tolerable, so you can use it daily, or as prescribed.1,2
