However, if you are buying a hydrogen peroxide solution from the shop, the concentration may vary from 3% to 35% and even more. It is vital that you should never use hydrogen peroxide of more than 3% concentration on your skin. So, in case you are buying a more concentrated hydrogen peroxide formulation from the market, make sure to add adequate amount of water to it to bring down the concentration to 3% before application on the skin.
