How does Zindaclin gel work?
Acne is a common skin condition which causes the skin to produce too much sebum which blocks skin pores causing acne spots. Bacteria, known as P.acnes, live on the skin and feed on the excess sebum. Their waste products irritate the skin, clogging pores and make acne worse.

While acne can sometimes clear up on its own, it usually requires medical attention to keep the symptoms under control. Zindaclin gel is a proven topical treatment to help reduce red skin and stop acne from appearing.

Zindaclin gel contains the active ingredient clindamycin, an antibiotic medicine which can help to kill harmful bacteria that irritate the skin, preventing them from regrowing.
