Topical acne therapy products

Health Canada informed in December 2015 of the coming update of the Acne therapy product monograph. Health Canada has indicated that the use of these products could lead, in rare cases, to severe allergic reactions.

Consequently, companies commercializing over-the-counter topical anti-acne products containing benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid will have to revise their product labelling as to reflect that change.

Consultpharm can help you in reviewing your product labelling and prepare their submission to Health Canada.
