About MINOZ BPO GEL

MINOZ BPO GEL belongs to the class of dermatological preparations called ‘antiacne’ used to treat acne (pimples) and remove the skin's upper dead layer. Acne is a common skin condition and occurs when hair follicles are blocked with dead skin cells and oil. The acne-causing bacteria feeds on sebum (natural oil produced by skin) causing redness and swelling.

MINOZ BPO GEL is a combination of two drugs: Adapalene (retinoids) and Benzoyl peroxide (keratolytic agent).  Adapalene belongs to the retinoid class (human-made vitamin A) that works by loosening the cells in the skin’s surface and unblocks pores by reducing oil production in the skin. Thereby, decreases pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. Benzoyl peroxide is a keratolytic agent that breaks down a protein known as keratin (that forms part of skin structure) and removes dead skin cells and softens skin. Additionally, Benzoyl peroxide possesses antibacterial properties and kills bacteria that causes acne.

MINOZ BPO GEL is only for external use. Take a small amount of MINOZ BPO GEL on fingertips and apply as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of MINOZ BPO GEL with nose, ears, mouth or eyes. In case MINOZ BPO GEL comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with warm water thoroughly. Your doctor will advise you how often you take MINOZ BPO GEL based on your medical condition. You may experience dry skin, scaling, local skin rash, irritation, redness or burning sensation of the skin in some cases. Most of these side effects of MINOZ BPO GEL do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to MINOZ BPO GEL or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Do not apply MINOZ BPO GEL on cuts, open wounds, scrapes, sunburned, windburned, chapped, dry or irritated skin. Avoid exposure to tanning beds or sunlight while using MINOZ BPO GEL as it may make the skin more sensitive to sunlight and cause sunburn. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen while going out to protect your skin from sunburn. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor before taking MINOZ BPO GEL. Do not apply MINOZ BPO GEL in large amounts or use for a long time than prescribed as it does not give quick or better results but increases the risk of side effects such as irritation, scaling or redness of the skin. If you have eczema (itchy, swollen, rough and cracked skin) or sunburned skin, please inform your doctor before taking MINOZ BPO GEL.
