About Clin-Clear Gel 20g

Acne is a skin related problem in which oils glands (sebaceous gland) of the skin become clogged, thereby forming pimples and sometimes cysts.

Together it helps to reduce the swelling, redness and tenderness caused due to acne or pimple. Besides this, it also prevents the formation of pimples, blackheads and whiteheads on the skin.
