Acne Gels, Creams & Lotions

Acne requires a multi-faceted treatment approach. Gels, creams, and lotions containing Benzoyl Peroxide are often effective in mild to medium cases of acne.

Benzoyl Peroxide is a therapeutic ingredient found in many products for acne-prone skin. It kills the bacteria (P. acnes) responsible for causing pustules and spots and reduces sebum production, which helps to unblock pores. Other active ingredients to look out for are Nicotinamide, which soothes the redness and reduces inflammation, and Potassium Hydroxyquinoline Sulphate.

Start with lower strength creams, gels, and lotions and allow time for the ingredients to start working on your skin. It can sometimes take several weeks for the skin to show signs of improvement. Use these products in combination with acne cleansers and toners.
