Baclytic Gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene Topical and Clindamycin Topical which treat pimples (acne). Adapalene Topical is a form of vitamin A which prevents accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblocks the pores and allows natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin. Clindamycin Topical is an antibiotic which works by penetrating into the skin and killing acne-causing bacteria.
