BENZAC AC 5% Gel 15g Benzoyl Peroxide by Galderma

What BENZAC AC is used for?


BENZAC AC Gel is used as an aid for the treatment of acne

It contains benzoyl peroxide which kills the bacteria on the skin that cause acne and unplugs blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads).

 BENZAC AC Gel also contains acrylates copolymer beads that absorb excess oils and release glycerol which reduces the risk of irritation.

How to use BENZAC AC

Always begin treatment with either 2.5% or 5% BENZAC AC. Provided your skin tolerates the lower strength gel, your doctor or pharmacist may recommend continued treatment with the higher strength gel. BENZAC AC is a spot treatment and should only be applied to affected areas.

Wash and dry your hands before applying the gel.

Unless your doctor or pharmacist has told you otherwise, follow these three steps:

Step 1.

Wash the affected area with a mild skin cleanser and water and pat skin dry.

Step 2.

Apply a thin film of BENZAC AC to the affected areas once daily, leaving on the skin for 2 hours then washing it off with water then pat skin dry.

Step 3.

Apply a light moisturiser which won’t clog pores.

After three days, if no discomfort is felt, apply BENZAC AC in the evening and leave it on all night.

After 7 days, if there is no redness or peeling and your skin is still not improving, apply BENZAC AC twice a day morning and night.

How long you will need to use BENZAC AC will depend on how quickly your condition improves.

Persevere with your therapy as acne can take time to improve. After you have used it for one month, you should see your doctor or pharmacist again so they can check the improvement in your condition.
