How does DUAC Gel work?
Clindamycin phosphate, which is an active ingredient in Duac gel, is an antibiotic, which is prescribed for the treatment of bacterial infections. This medication basically prevents bacteria from making proteins, working together with benzoyl peroxide. If the bacteria cannot produce these proteins, it means they cannot grow or multiply.
The bacteria that remains will ultimately die or is destroyed by the body’s immune system, thus treating the infection. Clindamycin helps to destroy various types of bacteria, including bacteria which causes acne. These bacteria are known as Propionebacterium acnes.
Benzoyl peroxide on the other hand, is a form of medication referred to as a keratolytic. Basically, this medication breaks down keratin. Keratin is a protein which is part of the skin configuration. What happens when you use benzoyl peroxide is that the top layer of your skin cells breaks down and sheds. This assist in breaking down blackheads and whiteheads and it also unblocks your sebaceous glands. New blackheads and whiteheads are also prevented from forming.
