Benzac AC is an effective benzoyl peroxide based treatment for mild to moderate acne.
The active ingredient in Benzac AC, benzoyl peroxide helps unblock pores and kills acne bacteria within 48 hours.
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%).
How long you will need to use Benzac AC will depend on how quickly your condition improves. 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.
Benzac AC Gel is a spot treatment and should only be applied to affected areas. Wash and dry your hands before applying the gel.
