Sensitive skincare specialist, LA ROCHE-POSAY, has unveiled the latest innovation in its acne skincare solutions range, continuing a commitment to improving the quality of life for people with acne-prone skin. Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel is a new face and body cleanser for acne-prone skin, scientifically proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of acne as well as the breakout recurrence of blemishes on the face, back and chest.

Research shows that as many as 80% of teenagers and 40% of adults worldwide are affected by acne, with almost all (97%) of acne patients reporting a reduced quality of life2. The demand for an anti-acne body treatment is also evident, with two thirds of people with acne-prone skin admitting to also suffering from back and/or chest acne, and a staggering 185 million Google searches annually specific to back acne solutions. Pimples on the body are particularly difficult to address, as the skin is up to five times thicker than the face and more difficult to reach, especially on the back. Formulated with a high concentration of peeling ingredients, Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel is able to gently but effectively, micro-exfoliate the thick layers of skin, and
produce visible results in even the toughest areas, to promote healthier-looking skin.


Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel features the highest percentage of salicylic acid (2%) in the LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar range, which in combination with LHA and zinc, micro-exfoliates the skin, unclogs pores from dead skin cells and helps diminish the secretion of sebum. The addition of glycerin as another key ingredient, ensures the cleanser provides maximum comfort and promotes a smoother skin texture that appears less oily, yet purified and
detoxified. Formulated with a physiological pH, Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel respects the skin barrier, and in turn, enables suitability for even sensitive skin

When trialled by acne-prone subjects every day for four weeks, new Effaclar Micro-Peeling Purifying Gel demonstrated a reduction in facial blemishes by 51%, blackheads by 16% and pigmented marks by 57%4. After an additional two weeks of use, subjects also experienced a reduction of 26% for blemishes on the back and chest supporting the cleanser’s efficacy on acne-prone areas and its triple-action purpose.


You can use Effaclar Micro-peeling Purifying Gel with  LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Duo (+) Anti-Acne Moisturiser for a dedicated acne regime.

The new LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Micro-peeling Purifying Gel ($29.95) is available now at Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, Adore Beauty
and select pharmacies nationally. To find your nearest stockist and/or purchase online visit
