Galderma Announces Availability of Epiduo(TM) Gel, the First and Only Combination Treatment with a Retinoid and Benzoyl Peroxide to Treat Acne

Epiduo(TM) Gel Combines Retinoid and Benzoyl Peroxide in a Single Product; Performs Better than Either Component Alone

FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Galderma Laboratories, L.P. today announced the availability of Epiduo(TM) (adapalene and benzoyl peroxide) Gel 0.1% / 2.5%, the first and only, once-daily, topical acne treatment that combines the well-tolerated retinoid adapalene, and benzoyl peroxide, a well-known antimicrobial with no evidence of promoting bacterial resistance.

Epiduo(TM) Gel also helps reduce the complexity of acne management by reducing the number of medications a patient has to remember to take on a daily basis, potentially increasing treatment adherence. The easy-to-apply Gel requires use only once a day.
