Akneroxid 5 Gel is a cosmetically satisfactory and skin-compatible preparation. Akneroxid 5 Gel has 3 mechanisms of action for the treatment of acne: mild desquamating, antibacterial and antiseborrheic action.

Desquamating effect: a positive influence is exerted on the disturbances of keratinisation occuring in the orifices of the sebaceous glands in acne.

Antibacterial effect: It inhibits the growth of propioni bacteria. Antiseborrheic effect: The quantity of sebum which is practically always increased in acne is reduced. It has mild desquamating effect which is frequently associated with a therapeutically desirable mild irritation of the skin.
