Zindaclin Gel (Clindamycin)

Zindaclin gel contains clindamycin phosphate, which is an acne-treating antibiotic. This medication restricts the growth of Propionibacterium acnes, a type of bacteria that is responsible for causing acne. The gel is mainly useful to overcome inflammatory acne.


Zindaclin Gel is a topical antibacterial medication recommended for the treatment of acne. It contains clindamycin phosphate that helps to eliminate acne-causing bacteria and reduces the inflammation in the sebaceous glands of the skin.

Acne is caused due to the production of excess sebum by sebaceous glands in our skin. Acne-causing bacteria feed on the sebum to cause irritation, redness, and inflammation of the sebaceous glands that lead to spots or pimples. 

Zindaclin Gel contains the active antibacterial ingredient clindamycin phosphate. It reduces the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin and unblocks the pores of the skin to prevent your acne from increasing. Zindaclin also reduces the redness and inflammation on your skin. 

Zindaclin Gel is used for the treatment of acne breakout on the skin. This includes blackheads, whiteheads, comedones, pimples, papules, and pustules. Normally, Zindaclin is recommended for the treatment of acne occurring on the face, neck, shoulders, arms, chest, or back. Acne is caused due to excessive production of sebum by sebaceous glands and the presence of acne-causing bacteria known as Propionibacterium Acnes on your skin.

Zindaclin Gel has antibacterial properties and is effective due to the active ingredient clindamycin phosphate. This helps reduce the number of acne-causing bacteria on the skin. Zindaclin Gel also soothes the irritation in sebaceous glands, and reduces inflammation, and redness of the skin to heal acne.
