Description

How Does Epiduo Work? Epiduo has two active ingredients: adapalene 0.1% and benzoyl peroxide 2.5%. Adapalene addresses your acne by inhibiting the keratinocyte differentiation that leads to clogged hair follicles on the skin. Benzoyl peroxide works by reducing bacteria as an antiseptic. The combination heals acne and reduces the chances of reoccurrence.
