Treclin gel is widely used to clear acne on the face. Two ingredients are used: an antibiotic called clindamycin and a retinoid called tretinoin. This combination of both medicines efficiently reduces spots, redness and inflammation.


What is Treclin?

Treclin is a topical antibiotic treatment used to reduce the appearance of acne breakouts. 

How does it work?

Treclin contains the active ingredients clindamycin and tretinoin. Clindamycin limits the growth of the bacteria reducing acne and inflammation, while tretinoin normalizes the growth of the superficial skin cells to unclog hair follicles in areas of acne. 

Is Treclin suitable for me?

If you're experiencing acne and are aged 12 years or over, this product may be suitable for you.

Commonly Used Dosage Guidelines for Treclin Gel.

Apply a pea-sized amount of Treclin gel once daily at bedtime.

  • Wash your face gently with mild soap and warm water and pat your skin dry with a towel. 
  • Squeeze a pea-sized amount of gel onto the fingertip. 
  • Dab the gel on your forehead, chin, nose and both cheeks, and then gently spread it evenly over your whole face.
