What is Acnecide Spot Treatment

Acnecide Spot Treatment (otherwise known as Acnecide Face Gel) is specifically designed to treat mild acne on the face. Unlike other Acnecide products where they can be used on the chest and back, this product can only be used on the face. This product contains the active ingredient benzoyl peroxide which targets the specific bacteria known as Propionbacterium, which is the main leading cause of acne. Do not use this to treat anything more severe than mild acne which can be differenciated as mild acne appears only as blackheads and whiteheads with little to no spots.

  • Avoid using if you have scars from previous acne spots
  • Do not use if you have any inflamed spots or larger bumps on your face.
