Epiduo 0.1/2.5% Gel is a combination of two medicines: Adapalene Topical and Benzoyl Peroxide which treat acne (pimples). Adapalene Topical is a form of vitamin A and Benzoyl Peroxide is a keratolytic medicine. Together, they prevent accumulation of the sebum (skin’s natural oil), unblock the pores and allow natural exfoliation of the outer layers of skin.
