Yes, benzoyl peroxide does have an expiration date. Over time, the active ingredient in benzoyl peroxide can become less effective, reducing its ability to treat acne. Additionally, expired benzoyl peroxide may undergo chemical changes that could potentially irritate the skin. It is always advisable to check the expiration date on the packaging and discard any expired products. Using expired skincare products can compromise their efficacy and potentially lead to adverse effects.
