Benzac AC Moderate Strength 5% Acne Wash

Highly effective wash for the chest and back that kills up to 94% of the bacteria that causes acne2,3.
You need a powerful ally in your fight against acne, one that calls upon acrylates copolymer – tiny beads that absorb up to four times their own weight in fluid – to soak up excess oils, but leaving the water your skin needs untouched. Glycerin leaves your skin feeling smooth and soft.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your healthcare professional.

Benefits

  • Kills P. acnes bacteria
  • Reduces blackheads and whiteheads
  • Clears blocked pores
  • Acrylates copolymer technology removes excess oiliness and rehydrates the skin while treating
  • With antimicrobial benzoyl peroxide 

How to use

Simply use in the shower as the first step in your three-step acne routine, washing your chest and back (but you can also use it on your face): wet the area you want to cleanse, work into a lather, apply then leave for 30 seconds before washing off and patting dry. Follow with your acne treatment of choice before finishing by applying a moisturiser.

Start off using Benzac AC Moderate Strength 5% Acne Wash once daily, before working up to twice-daily applications. During the first weeks of treatment, a sudden increase in peeling will occur in most people; this will normally subside within a day or two if treatment is temporarily stopped.
