What is Epiduo Gel for?
Please note: Do not use Epiduo alongside other Benzoyl-Peroxide containing products.
Please note: Do not buy Epiduo online to use alongside other treatments for your condition that contain a retinoid.

Epiduo Gel is prescribed for the treatment of acne, specifically very effective in easing pimples. The active ingredient Adapalene 0.1% is often excellent at treating the condition which has been caused by comedones (clogged hair follicles in your skin). Epiduo Gel comes as a practical, easy-to-use 45g pump dispenser.
Epiduo Gel is antibiotic-free and therefore may be suitable to be used by those who can’t use treatments that contain antibiotics, or perhaps do not wish to use such products. To purchase Epiduo online simply complete an online consultation with Medical Specialists®, using our safe, secure and quick service.
How does Epiduo Gel work?
There are two active ingredients in Epiduo Gel – Adapalene 0.1% and Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% - and they work in different ways to effectively reduce symptoms.
Adapalene belongs to a class of medicines known as retinoids (a type of vitamin A that removes dead skin cells) and works to normalise the development of the skin cells, whilst stopping pores from becoming blocked and promotes the renewal of skin cells. Adapalene also eases inflammation and swelling.
Benzoyl Peroxide reduces the number of bacteria that cause the problem, killing them off and helping the skin to dry, soften and eventually peel off to renew skin cells and give you new, fresh and clear skin. This is why Benzoyl Peroxide is usually referred to as a peeling agent.
The combination of the two active ingredients combine together to effectively reduce breakouts, in addition to preventing or reducing future occurrences.
