What Is Duac?
Duac is a treatment for mild to moderate acne. It comes in gel form and contains two main ingredients -
clindamycin, an antibiotic; and benzoyl peroxide, an antibacterial and keratolytic (peeling) agent, which reduces
acne causing bacteria and reduces blackheads and whiteheads.
How do I use Duac?
Gently wash the affected area with a mild cleanser and make sure the skin is completely dry afterward. Apply
a small amount of gel to the entire affected area/s each evening and rub in. If the gel does not easily rub into
the skin then you are using too much. You should wash your hands after each application. Allow the gel to dry on
the skin, do not wash it off.
How long will it take to work?
You would expect to see improvement of your acne after 2-5 weeks of daily use, with the maximum benefit being
seen in around 8-12 weeks. Treatment should only be continued up to a maximum of 12 weeks.
How do I store Duac?
Before purchase, Duac will be stored in the refrigerator. However, once you receive the item it can be stored
out of the fridge, up to 25°C. Duac must be discarded after 2 months.
