The workhorse behind Malezia's three step regimen. Our moisturizer may hydrate the daylights out of skin, but this is what treats acne, eliminates blackheads, and refines texture! 😉
Featuring 2.5% MICRONIZED benzoyl peroxide, which is an FDA approved topical antiseptic for the treatment of acne.
Perhaps you've tried benzoyl peroxide in the past and weren't a fan because it can be irritating and make skin drier than Satan's weenus. We get it! That's why we emphasized the micronized part.
Micronization is the process of milling down the average diameter of a solid material’s particles. This is important because homogenous dispersions of finer particles have proven to yield better results in fighting acne with less risk of irritation. In fact, one study found micronized benzoyl peroxide actually INCREASED skin moisture!
For reference, our benzoyl peroxide has an average particle size of 5 microns: smaller than the size of a bacteria cell.
But that's not all! We've also included 0.5% sodium phytate for its ability to boost skin moisture and elasticity, regulate oil production, and combat hyperpigmentation.

This is my 4th or 5th time purchasing the Benzoyl Peroxide from Malezia. I use Tretinoin at night and my dermatologist suggested I use Benzoyl Peroxide in the mornings. This 2.5% formulation is perfect because it's effective, without being drying. I no longer experience regular breakouts, however I will always keep this product in my skincare arsenal.
I absolutely love these Malezia products! I think the Urea moisturizer is my favorite one I’ve ever used, and I’ve used a LOT. It goes on smooth, sinks in, and my skin drinks it up, doesn’t leave a weird film or anything. It’s like my skin is saying thank you for the first time in a long time.. This is a company you should definitely support.
I struggled for YEARS with those tiny bumps all over my face. They were itchy and never went away no matter what I did. You can see them pretty clearly in the photo I added with my cat. After finding simpleskincarescience.com, reading their research, and then seeing they created Malezia, everything changed for me. I’m on my third tube of the moisturizer and have been using the treatment for almost a year now. And you can see in the second picture that those bumps are just straight up gone! I still get the occasional pimple and hormonal acne but I’m SO SO happy that those tiny bumps are gone!!!
After years of suffering with bad skin, I had some good years until recently where my skin has been unhappy. I turned back to the simple skin care science page where I saw a new product was released! I was super excited and when it arrived I spot tested my arm to make sure it wasn’t going to react. I then used it on my face. After day one I felt it was the best thing I ever used as my spots had gone. Day 2 - my whole face was covered in hives. I’m not sure if it was this or the moisturiser but I have had to see a dermatologist since. I showed this to my dermatologist who said there’s no surprise I reacted as BP is an irritant. I have given the products to my skin who has more tolerant skin than me. She doesn’t have acne but it’ll make me feel like I haven’t wasted my money.
This is the most gentle formula of BP I have ever tried. My skin developed a sensitivity to BP a long time ago and I have never found a product that worked (no matter how low the dosage or how soft it was supposed to be). This is the only product that won’t leave me inflamed and itchy. A little goes a long way, and layering over moisturizer helps, but it’s the best solution I’ve found to help clear stubborn acne without making the surrounding skin worse.
I've been using this for almost a year now and I'm on my second tube (for me a little goes a long way). Absolutely love this product! If I don't use it for even a few days, I notice an immediate difference in my skin with breakouts and clogged pores.
Really the one constant in my skincare for a while now. I use a small amount of it on top of my moisturizer every night and love the results.
I think what's helped me with any dryness is using the moisturizer that works well with my skin and taking a tolerance break every now and then.
I have sensitive skin, and I have tried other benzoyl peroxides in the past that left me with an irritation so bad, and very swollen. When I saw the treatment gel which contained benzoyl peroxide and you needed to use it with the Urea moisturizer for best results, I was hesitant and scared. I followed into reading into Malezia’s regime guide for sensitive skin and I followed through with it and I’m so glad I did. I got my results and my skin is better than ever, and all I had to do was raise my tolerance for benzoyl peroxide and I can use it like nothing. Never ever changing products.
I was at a luxury spa, and the receptionist asked me what I used on my skin despite selling really expensive luxury skincare. I just use the urea moisturizer and this. THIS treatment gel really did what it claims: uses alongside the moisturizer, for 8 weeks, it healed my skin back to its pre-fungal acne glory.
I used the moisturizer and gel for 8 weeks, using only the gel at night so that it had a stronger effect on the fungal acne. For a while, I wore sun hats outside instead of putting sunblock on my face. Once I found a fungal acne safe sunblock, I started incorporating Bioderma to take the sunblock off at the end of the day (followed by a water rinse, the moisturizer, and the gel).
I still use the gel, even though my skin is clear, to maintain a fungus free face. I’ll either apply it on its own or in top of the moisturizer. It really doesn’t dry your skin out, as claimed!
My skin had truly recovered from face mask induced fungal acne: the texture is normal and health again. I don’t have black heads or any skin imperfections, and this stuff always dries/shrink any blemishes that start to form.
Seriously: I’m going to stick with Malezia because the products are simple and they work.
Give them a shot.
My face has the most sensitive skin in existence. This has been the best thing for it. I can use this with no issue. It still tingles ever so slightly but nothing like the burn I get from other products. I only use it twice a week because my skin is so moody but that’s been enough to keep my acne at bay.
I’ve been using the cream since it came out and keep reordering because it’s so effective. Definitely one of my holy grail skincare items!!
