What is Epiduo gel?

Epiduo is used for the treatment of acne. This gel combines two active ingredients, Adapalene and Benzoyl peroxide.

How does Epiduo gel work?

The two active ingredients in Epiduo, Adapalene and Benzoyl peroxide, work together but in different ways:

Adapalene belongs to a group of products known as retinoids and acts specifically on the skin processes that cause acne.

The other active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, works as an antimicrobial agent and by softening and peeling the outer layer of the skin.

How is Epiduo used?

This medicine is for external use only.

Apply a thin film of gel evenly over acne affected areas once a day at bedtime, avoiding the eyes, lips and nostrils. The skin should be clean and dry before application. You should wash your hands thoroughly after you have used Epiduo.

Epiduo Gel should not be applied to damaged skin, either broken (cuts or abrasions), eczematous or sunburned.

Excessive exposure to sunlight or UV radiation should be avoided.

Epiduo should not come into contact with any coloured material including hair and dyed fabrics as this may result in bleaching and discoloration.
