I don't know if I've ever seen Hydrogen Peroxide cream.. but then again I don't know what brands it would be marked as xD

I watched an old computer restorer use hydrogen peroxide cream to evenly fix yellowed keys and plastic components.

Ah I see... I wonder if I could do  that on my poor little baby moondancer.. she has had a hydrogen peroxide treatment before but I doubt she will ever lose her splotches as they returned several months later...
My DeviantArt, why not drop by and take a look!

Hydrogen Peroxide cream is safe, it's basically Hydrogen Peroxide diluted in a gel substance so it stays where it's applied.

I guess it could be used on ponies that are blacklisted from the Oxyclean bath treatment, such as Glitter symbols, Princess Ponies and Twinkle Eyed, as you'd just need to apply the cream only where it's necessary and avoid the symbol and eye paints. I guess we'd need to experiment.

It's specifically Benzoyl peroxide you need to watch out for. That's what acne medicine contains usually. Hydrogen peroxide is not the same thing and is typically safe to use in all kinds of applications since it's water soluble. Benzoyl peroxide forms a barrier where it's applied which is why it can still bleach things after many years.

edit: Oops, looks like that was covered already :P

Benzoyl Peroxide is a component in acne cream and causes those contagious bleaching effects. Avoid at all costs Acne Cream / Benzoyl Peroxide on ponies/plastis Source on use of Benzoil Peroxide


Hydrogen Peroxide cream is just the same as an OxyClean bath, which and has been proved harmless so far. Source on Hydrogen Peroxide gel composition and use; Source on OxyClean composition

Yes, those two components have Peroxide, but that doesn't make them the same thing at all, they won't act the same at all. I noticed people get them mixed up. Which is okay, to be honest. Chemistry can be tricky.


So, the term "Peroxide cream" doesn't give exactly what you're talking about, which could cause problems depending on what people interpreted from reading it. You need to mention if it's hydrogen peroxide cream, or Benzoyl peroxide cream.

Thanks for making the distinction and sharing the info! That does make a huge difference!

You can buy hydrogen peroxide cream from hair supply shops usually. It’s great.

I agree with a big NO to acne cream.

I used it on a yellow pony once about 15 years ago (EU baby Splashes) to remove some ink and it worked well. She still looks fine, with no bleaching. But she stays the hell away from my other ponies XD

I always say pass on acne creme. That's my Tuneful pictured. Poor thing. Have fun with h202 soaks though but watch out with ponies with sugarberry color hair and neon yellow...

Benzyl Peroxide is the active ingredient in many acne creams.  It fades ponies so is generally only something to use as a last resort if at all.  It also fades fabrics.

Hydrogen Peroxide is what people often use for cleaning out small wounds and it's the active ingredient in OxiClean.  So far in my years of using it I haven't had any bad side effects other than reds and pinks fading which is actually due to sun exposure.  Chartreuse hair bleeds when exposed to it.  I've heard reports that it can harden a pony's body, but I think that's just it cleaning out any leaching plasticizer.  It is safe for vinyl (the pony's body), but destroys nylon after prolonged exposure.

Yes it is. Look at the composition, it should be hydrogn peroxide and a creamy medium. Works the same way as oxyclean.
