Microbenz 3.5% Gel
Microbenz 3.5% Aqueous Gel 15 gm contains ‘Benzoyl Peroxide’, an antibacterial medication used to treat bacterial skin infections like acne (pimples). It is an organic compound with an irritant, keratolytic (remove warts, calluses), comedolytic (inhibits the formation of blemishes), and anti-inflammatory activity. Microbenz 3.5% Aqueous Gel 15 gm kills bacteria, reduces inflammation and unplugs blocked pores. It decomposes to release oxygen when applied to the skin. This oxygen acts as a bactericidal agent and kills Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. Microbenz 3.5% Aqueous Gel 15 gm increases the turnover rate of epithelial cells (cells that line the surface of the skin), eventually helps in peeling the skin and treating comedones (skin-coloured, small bumps due to acne). Microbenz 3.5% Aqueous Gel 15 gm also has a mild drying effect that allows excess oils and dirt to be washed away from the skin.
