Benzac AC Wash
Benzac AC Wash is a treatment for use in mild to moderate acne. It’s convenient because it provides both a cleansing and treatment action combined in one.

Kills acne-causing bacteria within 48 hours
It has a mild peeling (keratolytic) effect to help remove the follicle plug
Absorbs excess oil
Unique Acrylates Copolymer (AC)/glycerin complex removes excess oil
Reduces risk of irritation
Unique Acrylates Copolymer (AC)/glycerin complex releases glycerin which hydrates healthy skin
Benzoyl Peroxide 50mg/g
Inactives: Acrylates copolymer, glycerol, carbomer 940, sodium C14-C16 olefin sulfonate, sodium hydroxide q.s. or citric acid q.s. for pH adjustment, purified water to 100g
Firstly, wet the affected area. Gently rub on Benzac AC Wash 5%, work into a lather and leave in contact with skin for 30 seconds. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry.
During the first few weeks of treatment a sudden increase in peeling may occur. This is not harmful and will normally subside within a day or two.
If too much drying occurs, you may need to rinse the cleanser off sooner, use it less often or use a moisturiser.
Keep away from eyes, lips, mouth or sensitive areas of the neck. If excessive swelling, irritation, redness or peeling occurs, discontinue use.
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight or other sources of ultra-violet light, particularly at high altitudes or where the ground is snow covered.
Things to be careful of:
Be careful when using BENZAC gel because benzoyl peroxide can bleach or discolour clothing or towels.
