Galderma Launches Natural Ingredients-based Benzac® Acne Solutions to Get Smooth Skin
Time:January 07,2015    Clicks:341
Galderma Laboratories, L.P., maker of Cetaphil® and the #1 prescription topical acne brand, announced the launch of Benzac® Acne Solutions, its first-ever, over-the-counter (OTC) acne regimen. Benzac treats stubborn acne and prevents new breakouts from forming with salicylic acid, while pharmaceutical-grade East Indian Sandalwood Oil calms and soothes the skin. In a clinical study, 91% of people saw improvement in their acne in two weeks when using the new 3-step Benzac Acne Solutions, which includes the Benzac Skin Balancing Foaming Cleanser, Benzac Intensive Spot Treatment and Benzac Blemish Clearing Hydrator.

“Unlike many other acne treatments that don’t live up to their claims, Benzac is game changing in that it is clinically proven to help acne sufferers see predictable, smooth and luminous skin while minimizing irritation,” says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie. “Benzac is also the only skincare line to use East Indian Sandalwood Oil, which has been used for thousands of years in Eastern medicine and is known to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and soothes the skin.”

In addition to salicylic acid, Benzac also contains Kakadu plum, an antioxidant super fruit known for having the highest natural concentration of vitamin C, to brighten the skin; lemon myrtle, a natural astringent, to help reduce excess oil; and the mineral zinc, which is shown to act as a barrier against skin moisture loss.

“Building on our long-standing heritage in prescription acne treatments and commitment to providing innovative dermatological solutions, Galderma is offering Benzac as an effective, non-irritating solution for the nearly 100% of teens and up to 50 million Americans who suffer from mild-to-moderate acne,” said Miles Harrison, Vice President and General Manager for Self Medication at Galderma Laboratories, L.P. “We want to help patients avoid the frustration of experimenting and skin irritation from multiple OTC products. If you haven’t seen improvement in your skin within two weeks of using the Benzac regimen, you should talk to your dermatologist about prescription treatment options.”

Safe for sensitive skin, Benzac is dermatologist tested, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores) and free of artificial fragrances and dyes. It is not tested on animals. Benzac cartons are 100% recyclable, and the key ingredient in the regimen, East Indian Sandalwood Oil, is sustainably sourced.
