Acnecide Gel contains an active ingredient called benzoyl peroxide 5% which attacks the bacteria that cause acne. It’s used for acne treatment either on the face, chest or back.
What is it?
Acnecide Gel has a main active ingredient called benzoyl peroxide which attacks the bacteria known as propionibacterium acnes, which is one of the most common culprits behind acne outbreaks in teenagers and adults.
How does it work?
Acnecide Gel, as previously mentioned, contains benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide has an antibacterial effect. Additionally, it has a sort of drying effect, which causes excess oil and dirt to be easily washed away from the skin.
It generally takes anywhere from 5-7 weeks of continuous usage to see major results and improvements.
What is it used for?
Acnecide Gel, as a topical acne medication, is used in treatment of acne outbreaks, either in children or adults. Benzoyl peroxide neutralises the bacteria (propionibacterium acnes) that cause acne to form.
It also allows the top layer of the skin to shed easily, revealing the lower layers where most of the excess oil and dirt are trapped. Both of which cause an inflammation of the skin and redness on the same part of the skin where an acne outbreak is happening. Thus, in turn, allowing acne papules to break down and unblocking microscopic exocrine glands in the skin, and letting the skin get rid of the trapped excess oil.
