Benzac AC® products contain an Acrylates Copolymer / glycerin complex. Acrylates Copolymer are tiny highly porous beads. These beads are so porous that they can absorb up to four times their own weight in fluid. Acrylates Copolymer beads soak up certain liquids quickly and easily, but they are selective about what they can absorb. They can rapidly absorb oils, however, they can’t absorb water because water has a very high surface tension.
The other AC ingredient is glycerin. This lubricates the skin, imparting a feeling of smoothness and softness.
What does this mean practically in the treatment of acne? When a topical product containing Acrylates Copolymer/glycerin complex is applied to the face, the beads come in contact with lipids, such as sebum, that have a high affinity for them. Sebum, because of its attraction to the beads, forces the glycerin out of the beads and onto the skin surface. The beads then absorb the sebum.
Benzac AC® Gel and Benzac AC® Wash are both formulated using
Acrylates Copolymer/glycerin complex to provide an effective treatment.
Benzac AC® wash is a treatment for use in mild to moderate acne. The wash provides cleansing and treatment combined in one.
Benzac AC® gel is an aid in the treatment of acne and is available in 3 strengths for topical application.
