Crystaderm cream is a first aid cream which can be used for the treatment of acne, minor skin infections and the prevention of infection in minor cuts, scrapes and burns. The active ingredient of Crystaderm cream is hydrogen peroxide in a concentration of 1% w/w. Hydrogen Peroxide is a potent agent against many types of bacteria, and some fungi and viruses. It acts by destroying essential components of the cells of these organisms. To use, simply clean the affected area then apply Crystacide sparingly 3 to 4 times per day.
How to use Crystaderm Cream properly
