Benzac Skincare - Acne free skin

Everyone wants beautiful, flawless skin. Flawless skin means no pimples and acne scars. However, there are times when our skin cannot behave well. 

“We believe that acne is a widespread problem in Malaysia due to its hot and humid weather. Galderma prides itself for bringing to consumers quality products that bring real results and Benzac is no exception to the rule. With a product like this in the market, consumers can look forward to a simple, complete solution to their acne woes. ”said Jean-Sebastien Ricard, the General Manager of South East Asia of Galderma.

Benzac Skincare Launch was held at Cosans Coffee in Solaris Mont Kiara.

Galderma, the Swiss-based global dermatology company, pioneering in dermatological solutions in the country, adds another feather in their cap with the launch of a highly popular swiss-formulated acne-solution range onto Malaysian shores. 
With its launch in Malaysia, Malaysians will finally get a feel of the hype over Benzac products worldwide. Galderma understands that dealing with acne is agonising enough, therefore it is presenting Benzac as a pain-free and fuss-free two-step system in its Malaysian product line-up consisting;
  • Benzac Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser for Oily and Combination Skin
  • Benzac Daily Facial Foam Cleanser for Oily and Combination Skin
  • Benzac Daily Facial Liquid Cleanser for Sensitive to Normal Skin
  • Benzac Daily Facial Foam Cleanser for Sensitive to Normal Skin
  • Benzac Facial Scrub for All skin types
  • Benzac AC Gel

Benzac’s, 2 step skincare routine is designed to provide the right products to help fight acne. The sooner you start treating acne, the sooner you’ll see clearer skin.
Step One 
- the Cleanse and Scrub phase 
- consisting of Benzac Daily Facial Liquid / Foam Cleanser and Benzac Facial Scrub. 
Benzac Daily Facial Liquid / Foam Cleanser for Oily to Combination skin controls oiliness without drying the skin. Meanwhile, Benzac Daily Facial Liquid / Foam Cleanser for Sensitive to Normal skin effectively remove impurities and gently unblock pores. 
Benzac’s cleansing formulations contain natural calendula and aloe vera extracts to keep skin well hydrated while controlling sebum production for a shine-free skin. For more thorough cleansing, the cleansers are supplemented by the Benzac Facial Scrub, suitable for all skin types.

To further prepare the skin for better absorption of active ingredients in the following step, clean pores that are not overwhelmed and clogged up with dead skin cells ensure better success in the fight against acne. Benzac Facial Scrub gently exfoliates to remove dead skin cells and impurities for clean pores. For the perfect deep cleansing action, it is recommended to be used twice weekly.

Now that pores are clean and free of impurities, it is now ready for the real battle against acne with Step Two: Treat phase. 

Step Two

- the Treat phase 
- features the Benzac AC Gel. 

The star of this phase is the Benzac AC Gel, a water-based formulation featuring Acrylates Copolymer (AC) Glycerin Complex that kills 94% of acne causing P.acnes bacteria from the skin surface. While tough on acne, this dermatologically approved gel is gentle enough on the skin to soothe and reduce any inflammation and can absorb up to 4 times excess sebum from skin’s surface without drying the skin. The result is a soothed, grease-free, supple and acne-free skin.
