Epiduo (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel 0.1%/2.5% is a prescription medication for acne. It contains two acne-fighting ingredients, a retinoid called adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. It’s the only FDA-approved topical acne treatment with this powerful combination.
Think of Epiduo® Gel as a nightmare for your breakouts.
Epiduo (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel 0.1%/2.5% is the only antibiotic-free, topical acne treatment that combines two hardworking medicines, adapalene and benzoyl peroxide, to help clear up the breakouts you have now and help prevent future pimples from forming. It also comes in a convenient pump, so treating and preventing breakouts can quickly become a part of your everyday routine.
Benzoyl peroxide is one of the two effective medicines in Epiduo Gel. It's an antimicrobial which kills the bacteria that lead to breakouts and helps prevent pimples from coming back.
Adapalene is a type of retinoid, and the other medicine in Epiduo Gel. It unclogs blocked pores, helping to stop acne from forming under the skin's surface and decreasing the redness, swelling and inflammation associated with pimples.
Having both ingredients in a single treatment could also mean fewer co-pays. Use a pea-sized amount daily, and you may only need a refill once every 3 months.
