What is Acnecide Face Gel?

Acnecide Face Gel is a gel that helps to treat mild acne by attacking the bacteria that causes the condition, helping to keep skin clear. It works to reduce the effects of acne and allow the skin to return to its natural, smooth state, so you can feel confident in your skin.

What is the difference between Acnecide Face Gel and other Acnecide Gels?

This Acnecide Face Gel is designed to be used to treat mild acne breakouts affecting your face, whereas other Acnecide Gels can also be used to treat acne on your back, chest, and other areas. The difference in the formula means that you can buy this product without having to answer the pharmacy questions that you need to answer before you can buy other Acnecide gels in the range.

What is acne?

Acne is a common skin condition which causes spots to appear on the skin, including whiteheads, blackheads, and red spots that may or may not have a head. As well as spots, those who suffer from acne may notice that their skin feels oily, hot, or painful to touch. Some of the most common areas where people experience outbreaks of acne include the face, back, and chest.

How will this product treat my acne?

Acnecide Face Gel contains 5% w/w of the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide. It helps to combat your acne by killing the bacteria which can cause Propionibacterium acne, one of the most common causes of acne. This helps to prevent the blackheads and whiteheads that show up when you are suffering from acne by removing the source.
