Benzoyl peroxide

Recommended Posts

So I'm thinking that I may not be able to go back to using benzoyl peroxide for skin care of my back. It is known to bleach fabric so I am concerned that over time it will accelerate the aging of my tattoo. I read online that I shouldn't worry about it because tattoos are under a few layers of skin but, many substances can penetrate the skin. We give some medications that way.

Just curious if anyone knows anything about the effects of benzoyl peroxide on tattoos. I know not to use it during the healing process, but am I right in thinking it's better not to use it ever?

my guess is that it is fine to use once the tattoo is healed. I have never heard that you can't use benzoyl peroxide on a healed tattoo. I could be wrong, but I rarely am ;)
