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.

As a 40 year old struggling with acne since my teens, I'm hoping the frustrating search for treatment is over. Since ordering back in mid May, I am nearing the end of the tubes after two months use and have ordered more. I wanted to wait and see how this went before reviewing, and am loving the results! This gel and and the moisturizer are absolutely amazing! I'm now only using those two sparingly (a pea sized drop each) after a gentle cleansing morning and night.
The micronized BP alone is lightweight and smooth, absorbs like a dream, and most shockingly actually moisturizing! My face has mostly cleared and is wonderfully soft and glowy. I do still get a few bumps here and there from hormonal acne acting up every month, though that's to be expected and doesn't last more than a couple days at most.
My skin cannot thank you enough for developing your Malezia line, F.C.! I have not found anything else like it. Looking forward to what else you come up with.
This product has freed me from the world of antibiotics! It is gentle, yet, powerful. I’m so grateful that I happened upon it.
Also, the customer service is superb! I had a slight issue regarding an order, I emailed the company about it, and it was resolved within 5 hours...on a weekend night! The BEST COMPANY EVER!
I purchased both the treatment gel and the moisturizer…I have purchased so much since I had a unexplained eruption in late April. I didn’t take pics at its worst. Doxycycline didn’t help much, Metrogel didn’t help much, and Tacrolimus same thing. Although my MD team is still trying to figure out exactly what is going on, I am so thankful I purchased Malezia out of desperation. I still have a long way to go, but I can at least cover up with make-up…prior, I just wouldn’t leave the house! The pictures are about 2 weeks apart. Thank you!
I’ve previously been very lucky with my skin, most breakouts tend to be one or two big spots before my period.
However this year after some personal upheaval, my chin broke out in many small acne spots that would not clear up. Some were deep and incredibly painful.
A friend recommended Malezia. I’ve been using the BP gel and the moisturiser for about a month now and my chin has really started to clear.
The micronized benzoyl peroxide gel is the best product ever! I've ordered 4 times, after my initial order started purchasing 2 tubes each time. It has cleared my hormonal acne, I'm seriously addicted! Thank You F.C.!!!!
Works very well! Aply as advertised written, and let tiem to the job. So far I have seen lots of improvments!
I have been using both urea moisturizer and the treatment gel for some months now. I like both products and my skin has improved significantly!
However, I started noticing that my towels and my sheets have been changing colour. It took me many days to understand what's happening, as at first I thought it that maybe something happened when I was washing them... Until I used one gray towel that I haven't used in months, and before washing it, it changed colour to pink! So I tested both the cream and the gel on a small spot and left it overnight. It turns out, the gel takes the colour out of textiles where your face touches them! I don't know if it happened to anyone else, just thought I should give a heads-up to everyone here. (I attached photos below)
Something else unrelated to the product but related to customer's experience, is that the shipping company is extremely late. I live overseas and I tried to restock almost too months ago - my package still hasn't arrived.
I really like this product it’s not as irritating as other benzoyl peroxide treatments. However, if you have severe fungal acne or hormonal acne this may not be enough to completely treat it. I started off using both the moisturizer and this treatment for 2 months however I wasn’t seeing a dramatic difference in my skin. I decided to implement Stridex pads as well and my skin is so clear now wow! I use a cleanser, then the stridex pads, the urea moisturizer and then put on this treatment! So yeah just using this treatment wasn’t enough to completely clear my fungal acne and hormonal bumps but I still really enjoy this product! I just need a sunscreen now!!
Wonderful products. They have worked so well for me and also feel really nice on my skin. Couldn't ask for more.
The moisturizer and treatment changed my life and my skin. I never thought my skin would ever look this good. Malezia is the best skincare I could have ever found. AND it is eco friendly!!! Highly recommend!! :)
