La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Acne Treatment Fluid

La Roche-Posay Effaclar K Acne Treatment Fluid provides deeper exfoliation to patients with acne blemishes, blackheads, whiteheads and uneven skin texture. Effaclar K is designed for oily and problem skin.


This acne treatment is gentle enough for everyday use by patients with chronic acne, blackheads and whiteheads.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar K contains salicylic acid and two unique alpha-hydroxy acids, LHA (lipohydroxy acid) and capryloyl salicylic acid which outperform glycolic and salicylic acid despite being gentler.

The combination of LHA and salicylic acid is 1.5x more effective than salicylic acid alone and twice as effective as glycolic acid combined with salicylic acid. The combination is also 2x more tolerable than glycolic acid.

LHA and capryloyl salicylic acid helps refine uneven skin tone and help prevent and diminish post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which can occur after acne breakouts.

These agents are also available in La Roche-Posay Effaclar Toner and La Roche-Posay Effaclar Matte Moisturizer.

Effaclar K also contains zinc to help prevent acne breakouts, reduce shine, encourage healing and provide antioxidant benefits.

A clinical study into the efficacy of La Roche-Posay Effaclar K demonstrated an 86% reduction in microcomedones within 14 days of use (Keratolytic effecacy of Effaclar K as a monotherapy. PR. Pierard Liege Belgium. Published in European Journal of Dermatology. Vol. 13, N 1. Jan-Feb. 2003).

Relatively few products contain bioavailable zinc, an important antioxidant for skin, however a high concentration of absorbable zinc is found in La Roche-Posay Effaclar K.

Effaclar K has been tested safe for sensitive skin.

Please note: La Roche-Posay is available for online order by customers in the United States only. This product ships from the United States. Australian patients can re-order select La Roche-Posay products for delivery within Australia in accordance with their prescription by logging in.
