Acnecide Wash Gel is an anti-bacterial medication which helps tackle acne, whiteheads and blackheads that erupt on any part of the body. It contains the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide which helps destroy bacteria that cause acne.
The Acnecide Wash Gel is effective in treating mildly inflamed acne or non-inflamed acne, whiteheads, blackheads, pustules, and papules.
Acnecide Wash Gel contains the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide is a type of keratolytic drug that breaks down the protein called keratin which is present in the skin. When applied, it breaks down and sheds the top layer of the skinwhere acne bacteria are present. This further breaks down existing blackheads and whiteheads, prevents new ones and unblocks the sebaceous glands.
The gel is usually recommended to be used once or twice a day, or as recommended to you by your prescription.
Wet your skin where you wish to apply the gel. Ensure that your hands are clean. Take a small amount of Acnecide Wash Gel and wash the affected area. Make sure that the product remains in contact with the affected area of skin for about 1 – 2 minutes before you rinse it with water. Then, gently pat your skin dry using a towel. Wash your hands once again after using the product.

To show a significant improvement or change in the appearance of your skin, it would need to be used for at least 8-12 weeks. If you notice a severe worsening either naturally or because of the treatment, then please discontinue it immediately and seek a medical review with our team.
The wash may make your skin dry. In this case, you may apply a moisturiser to your skin after using the wash. Try to avoid using a facial moisturiser more than once a day so the skin does not become oily, and does not cause the acne to worsen.
