How Benzac® helps
No one wants it. But acne isn’t caused by something you have or haven’t done. We think it’s time to stop feeling bad, and start hitting back. Bacteria is one of the causes of acne. To fight it, you’ll need a special weapon: that’s where Benzac® can help.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does Benzac® take to work?
How long you will have to use BENZAC® AC 5 Gel will depend on how quickly your condition improves. After you have used it for one month, you should see your doctor or pharmacist again. He or she can then check the improvement of your condition.
Can I use Benzac® if I have severe acne?
Benzac® works best on mild to moderate acne. Severe cases of acne may need different treatments so it’s best to consult your healthcare professional. If you’re unsure about whether or not your acne is severe, our article Acne and Pimples: Spot the Difference breaks down the different types of acne that exist.
Should I use Benzac® if I don’t have acne?
No, If you don’t suffer from acne, use our cleansers and moisturiser products. These products don’t have the active ingredients that are specific for treating mild to moderate acne, but are effective for maintaining clear and hydrated skin. See our full line up of complementary skincare products to find out more.
Can I use Benzac® AC 5 Gel if I have sensitive skin?
Everyone is different and so is their skin. When trying a new product, it’s always best to do a patch test first. We recommend that you try applying a little bit of the product on the area behind your ear. This will help determine if you are sensitive to the product and active ingredients before you use it on your face. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you only apply the Gel once daily before going to bed or consult your healthcare professional.
I am allergic to benzoyl peroxide. Can I still use Benzac®?
Benzac AC 5 Gel and Wash contains benzoyl peroxide. Unfortunately, if you’re allergic to benzoyl peroxide, you will not be able to use the Benzac® treatment products. If you’re unable to use benzoyl peroxide, you can still benefit from our cosmetic skincare products. See our full line up of cosmetic skincare products to find out more.
