What is Acnecide 5% Wash Gel?
Acnecide 5% Wash Gel is a skin treatment that helps to tackle acne. Use this wash once or twice a day to reduce one of the main causes of acne and help your skin to clear up. If you’re sick and tired of blackheads, whiteheads, and other spots breaking out on your face, back, or chest, Acnecide Wash Gel could be the perfect treatment to work into your daily routine.



How will the benzoyl peroxide in Acnecide Wash Gel reduce my acne?
Benzoyl peroxide is the active ingredient in Acnecide Wash Gel, and it works as an antiseptic. This means it works by reducing the number of bacteria on your skin, tackling one of the main causes of acne. It typically takes around 4 weeks before it starts working and reduces your acne, but you can continue using it when your acne has improved to help to keep it from coming back.



What is acne?
Acne is a common skin condition which causes oily skin and breakouts of spots. When you have acne, you’re most likely to get breakouts on your face, back, or chest, with it being most common on the face. Acne happens when the natural oils on your skin block your pores, causing inflammation that you’d recognise like a spot. It can be hereditary, meaning that if someone else in your family has it you probably will too, but it can also be caused by hormonal changes, such as those during puberty, pregnancy, or your menstrual cycle.



Can I use this gel if I’m taking other medication?
If you’re taking any other medication, including those you bought without a prescription, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this product. You should not use Acnecide Wash if you’re already using other products which have peeling, irritant, or drying effects.

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this product. This product may not be suitable for you at this time. If your doctor or pharmacist says that you can use Acnecide Wash when you’re breastfeeding, do not apply it to your chest.
