Acnecide face wash is a medicinal spot treatment for mild facial acne, including blackheads and whiteheads and aims to adsorb excess oil.
Contains the active ingredient 5% Benzoyl Peroxide which effectively kills up to 95% of spot-causing bacteria, plus microsphere technology which helps to absorb excess oil and unblock pores, while releasing glycerine to help smooth and hydrate the skin.
Treatment should fall in-between cleansing and moisturising in your daily skincare routine.

Or, explore its collection of new Purifide moisturisers with added SPF for some much-needed hydration and protection. Your skin will thank you later.
For adults and adolescents age 12+. Use once or twice daily, wash hands before use and wet the skin, gently rub a small amount onto the affected areas to form a lather. Leave on the skin for 1-2 minutes, rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Should not be used alongside Acneside Gel. Try to avoid exposure to strong sunlight whilst using Acnecide treatments. Some initial mild sensitivity is common when starting with benzoyl peroxide treatments, as your skin needs to build tolerance to it over time. You may feel mild burning and notice slight reddening and peeling of the skin during the first few days. If you have more severe redness, burning, irritation and peeling then you should stop treatment and let your skin go back to normal before restarting treatment.
