BENZAC AC Gel is used as an aid for the treatment of acne.
It contains benzoyl peroxide which kills the bacteria on the skin that cause acne and unplugs blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads).
BENZAC AC Gel also contains acrylates copolymer beads that absorb excess oils and release glycerol which reduces the risk of irritation.
BENZAC AC is a spot treatment and should only be applied to affected areas.
Gel base contains docusate sodium, disodium edentate, poloxamer 182, carbomer 940, propylene glycol, acrylates copolymer, glycerol, silicon dioxide, sodium hydroxide and purified water. BENZAC AC is available in three strengths: 2.5%, 5% or 10% of benzoyl peroxide.
If excessive swelling, irritation, redness or peeling occurs, discontinue use. If it persists, consult your doctor.
Do not use BENZAC AC Gel if:
1. you have an allergy to benzoyl peroxide or any ingredients listed.
2. the package is torn or shows signs of tampering.
3. the expiry date (EXP) printed on the pack has passed.
4. you are pregnant or breastfeeding or intend to become pregnant or breastfeed. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
If you are not sure if you should start using BENZAC AC, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
BENZAC AC contains propylene glycol which may cause skin irritation.
Things to avoid:
Avoid contact with the eyes, lips, mouth, angles of the nose and sensitive areas of the neck. If accidental contact should occur, rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Contact may cause irritation.
BENZAC AC should not be applied to damaged skin.
Do not use BENZAC AC with any other acne products that are used on the skin unless your doctor or pharmacist has told you that you can, as this may cause your skin to become red and sore.
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultra-violet light.
