Epiduo Gel

Galderma (UK)

DESCRIPTION

Epiduo contains a combination of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Adapalene is a retinoid-like compound that is a potent modulator of cellular differentiation and keratinisation and has anti-inflammatory properties. This profile suggests that the cell-mediated inflammatory component of acne is reduced by adapalene. Benzoyl peroxide has been shown to have antimicrobial activity, particularly against Propionibacterium acnes, which is abnormally present in the acne-affected pilosebaceous unit. In addition, benzoyl peroxide has demonstrated exfoliative and keratolytic activities and is sebostatic, counteracting the excessive sebum production associated with acne

INDICATIONS

For the cutaneous treatment of comedones, papules and pustules in acne vulgaris
