Contact sensitization to benzoyl peroxide.

Abstract

Four formulations of benzoyl peroxide, two 5% and two 10% gels, were assayed for contact sensitizing capability by the human maximization test. Seventy-six per cent became sensitized. Sensitized subjects reacted to all four formulations. Benzoic acid and related compounds failed to elicit an allergic reaction.
