Benzac AC® Gel is an aid in the treatment of acne and is available in 3 strengths for topical application.1
There are 3 strengths of Benzac AC® Gel. 2.5%, 5% and 10%. The percentage refers to the amount of the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide in the gel.1
It is recommended that you always begin treatment with either 2.5% or 5% Benzac AC®. If your acne persists, and provided your skin tolerates the lower strength gel, your doctor or pharmacist may recommend continued treatment with the higher strength gel (10%). Be sure to read the information leaflet inside the pack before you begin.
Benzac AC® Gel 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:
How do you use it1
Wash the affected area with a mild skin cleanser and water and pat skin dry.
Apply a thin film of Benzac AC® Gel to the affected areas once daily, leaving on the skin for 2 hours then washing it off with water then pat skin dry.
Apply a light moisturiser which won’t clog pores. After three days, if no discomfort is felt, apply Benzac AC® Gel 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® Gel twice a day, morning and night. How long you will need to use Benzac AC® Gel will depend on how quickly your condition improves.
After a month, you should see your doctor or pharmacist again so they can asses the condition of your skin.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist see your healthcare professional.
