For more than 45 years, Benzagel® has been offering effective over-the-counter acne treatment products in Canada, led by our Acne Gel 5% and Acne Wash products. For the last 11 years (2012 – 2022), Benzagel® is proud to be recognized as the #1 recommended over-the-counter acne treatment brand by pharmacists in Canada.
Benzagel® was first registered in 1975 by Rhone-Poulenc. Columbia Laboratories acquired Benzagel® in 2000 and subsequently brought innovation and new solutions to the product line since the acquisition.
Since Columbia Laboratories acquired Benzagel®, we have also been dedicated to providing Canadians with effective acne treatment and skincare routine products. To do this, we have added new products to the Benzagel® line, providing Canadians more tools to treat their acne.
In 2019, we added our After Care Moisturizing Lotion, offering the last step in a complete skincare routine.
From start to finish, Benzagel® is here to support Canadians with safe, effective products to clean their skin, target acne spots, and moisturize effectively to nourish and replenish the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF).
Benzagel® is proud of the products we offer and the success that they have helped Canadians achieve. But, we are still committed to finding new ways to offer teens and adults skincare and acne care products to help them put their best face forward.
