Acnecide gel containing 5% Benzoyl Peroxide is ideal for treating smaller areas (e.g. the face) where Acne occurs. Benzoyl Peroxide has been shown to help reduce P. Acnes bacteria. The product contains Acrylates Copolymer beads, a special technology designed to remove excess oiliness and release Glycerine to hydrate and moisturise the skin.
How long you will have to use Acnecide will depend on how quickly your condition improves. After you have used it for one month, you should see your doctor or pharmacist again. He or she can then check the improvement of your condition. You should start treatment with the lower strength product. Provided your skin tolerates the lower strength gel, your doctor or pharmacist may recommend continued treatment with a higher strength gel to further help clear your acne.
Benzoyl Peroxide works by unclogging skin pores. It also helps stop bacteria from growing and causing acne pimples and cystic lesions.
