  • 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.
