Benzoyl Peroxide has many uses, but multiple dermatological studies have proven it is a valuable antimicrobial agent that destroys surface and ductal bacterial organisms and yeasts. It kills up to 95% of acne-causing bacteria and has proven effective against inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions. Antibiotic resistance can be built up with products that fight bacteria like antibiotics, but clinical studies showed that using Benzoyl Peroxide won’t induce antibiotic resistance in your skin.

The Benzac AC5 Gel contains a potent mix of two powerful elements that have been proven to be more effective in research groups and studies at reducing acne lesions in number and severity. The combination of Benzoyl Peroxide with Acrylate Copolymer makes Benzac AC5 Wash better at fighting acne than a product containing only Benzoyl Peroxide.

By itself, Benzoyl Peroxide has comedolytic and antibacterial effects. Thanks to the dual action powerful combo in Benzac AC5 Gel (15g or 40g), the gel also hydrates skin and reduces excess sebum (or oiliness), one of the four known causes or significant factors in acne vulgaris. In studies, it was found that adequate moisturisation is vital in acne treatments, helping the skin tolerate the treatment and preventing trans-epidermal water loss. This means that your skin will stay moisturised, aiding in the healing process.

Additional information


How to use?
The Benzac AC5 100g Wash is ideal for treating uninflamed or inflamed acne on the face, neck, and shoulders, but it can be used on any area of the skin affected by the acne vulgaris.
For best results, use it in combination with the Benzac AC5 wash, cleanser, and moisturiser as directed by your skin specialist or doctor.
We also strongly recommend that you use a 30+SPF sunblock because Benzoyl Peroxide increases skin’s sensitivity to the sun.
