Duac Once Daily Gel 25g contains two active ingredients, clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide, both of which are used to treat acne. These two medicines are combined in this gel to have a complementary effect on acne. Benzoyl peroxide reduces the oiliness of the skin immediately, but it may take four to six weeks of treatment before the full effect of both medicines on the acne is seen.

How does it work?

Duac once daily gel contains two active ingredients, clindamycin phosphate and benzoyl peroxide, both of which are used to treat acne.

About Clindamycin

Clindamycin treats bacterial infections by killing the bacteria causing the infection. It does this by preventing the bacteria from forming normal cell walls.

Clindamycin kills a wide variety of bacteria, including the bacteria associated with acne.

About Benzoyl

Benzoyl peroxide is a type of medicine known as a keratolytic. This means that it works by breaking down keratin, a protein which forms part of the skin structure.

When you apply benzoyl peroxide to the skin it causes the top layer of skin cells to break down and shed. This helps break down comedones (blackheads and whiteheads) and unblocks the sebaceous glands. It also helps to prevent the formation of new comedones.

Benzoyl peroxide also has an antibacterial action and directly kills bacteria on the skin, as well as reducing their numbers by decreasing the production of sebum (the food supply of the bacteria) by the sebaceous glands.

My daughter has used this cream and it has transformed her skin from spotty and blackhead prone to clear and delicate. It really has performed miracles but you have to work at it and stick with it for the best results. thoroughly recommend it and we had had it available when we were young!
