Acnecide 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Gel contains the active ingredient Benzoyl Peroxide which attacks the bacteria or germs known as Propionibacterium acnes, which are one of the main causes of acne. The active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, has an antibacterial effect along with anti-inflammatory and skin peeling (keratolytic) action. The reduction in bacteria on the skin leads to a reduction in greasiness of the skin, clears blockage of skin pores and general, gradual improvement in skin condition.

Other ingredients: docusate sodium, disodium edetate, poloxamer 182, carbomer 940, propylene glycol, acrylates copolymer, glycerol, colloidal anhydrous silica, purified water and sodium hydroxide to adjust the pH.
Keep away from mouth, eyes and mucous membranes and care should be taken if applying to more sensitive areas such as the neck. May bleach hair and coloured or dyed fabrics. Acnecide gel may increase sensitivity to bright sunlight and sunlamps should not be used. If you are, or think you might be, allergic to any of the ingredients (listed above) you should check with your doctor or pharmacist before using.
