Description and use

AC are the initials for Acrylates Copolymer beads which act to absorb oils and release glycerine to moisturise dry/irritated skin. Benzac AC is a water based benzoyl peroxide treatment for mild to moderate acne. Benzac ACabsorbs excess oil, kills bacteria and does not excessively dry skin. Benzac AC offers the convenience and flexibility of multiple strengths.


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 h
