USES OF BENZOACT SOAP

HOW BENZOACT SOAP WORKS

BENZOACT SOAP works against the acne-causing bacteria. This medicine after applying to the affected skin gets absorbed and is converted to benzoic acid. This benzoic acid gets metabolized by skin proteins and releases active free-radical oxygen species that result in the alteration of bacterial proteins. This helps to treat acne or pimples. BENZOACT SOAP also acts as a keratolytic agent which promotes peeling of the skin and absorb excess oil from the skin further preventing acne formation and skin irritation.

Rinse thoroughly and pat dry the application area. Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration for you depending on your age and disease condition.
