Benzac (Benzoyl, Peroxide)

Active Ingredient: Benzoyl, Peroxide



Benzac medication (benzoyl peroxide) is typically used in treating mild to moderate acne. It could be used together with other acne treatments. When applied, Benzac reduces the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin. It also causes the skin to dry and peel.

How to Use Benzac

Before using this medication, make sure you are not allergic to it. To do this, take a small amount of the product on one or more small areas of acne. Let the amount remain there for three days. In case of any allergic reaction, product use should be discontinued immediately. If no allergic reaction arises, the product is safe for use.

Before you buy Benzac medication, consult your doctor or pharmacist to ensure that the medication is right for you. When buying the medication over the counter, read the instructions on the packaging carefully. In case of any questions, consult your pharmacist.

To use Benzac medication, apply the product to portions of the screen affected by acne. When applying this medication, be careful not to get it into your nose, mouth, eyes or areas of broken skin as this might result in skin irritation. If this occurs, be sure to flush the area using plenty of water. Benzac may bleach fabrics or hair. Care should, therefore, be exercised when using the product.

When using cleansers that contain benzoyl peroxide, wet the area to be treated. Proceed to rub the cleanser into the skin for about 10-20 seconds. Work the cleanser into a full lather and rinse thoroughly. Pat the area dry.

When using the liquid wash, cleanser bar or cleansing pad, use it 1-2 times a day instead of soap. Wet the area to be treated before applying. Work up a lather gently for approximately 10-20 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with water. Do not scrub the skin.


The dosage is dependent on response to therapy and your medical condition. Results should be visible after 3 weeks of use, with the maximum benefit occurring after 8-12 weeks of use.

Do not increase the dosage without prior approval by the doctor or pharmacist. Also, do not use the product for longer or more times than directed. This will result in increased side effects rather than faster improvement. If the condition gets worse, seek medical assistance immediately.
