Acne, spots… it’s personal. And it’s our sole focus, day in day out. We aim to help you cut through the maze of myths about spots and acne and get straight down to business tackling the basic, fundamental causes of acne and spots: acne bacteria and blocked pores.

Acnecide® exists to offer effective self-care skincare solutions across the journey of acne and blemish-prone skin. Developed by dermatologists, our medicinal products include 5% benzoyl peroxide, an active ingredient which is effective in combating the bacteria that causes acne. Our Acnecide® Face Gel Spot Treatment and Face Wash Spot Treatments kill up to 95% of the spot-causing bacteria and help unblock pores to control and limit future breakouts.* The 15g and 50g Acnecide® benzoyl peroxide treatments are available to self-select and purchase right here on boots.com or from the main skincare aisle in most Boots stores. The original Acnecide® 30g and 100g over-the-counter benzoyl peroxide treatments remain available on request from a Boots Pharmacy counter or online on boots.com.

The Acnecide® range is also available to help cleanse, moisturise and protect sensitive spot-prone skin – for some everyday TLC.
