Product Information

What Doxycycline is and what it is used for

Doxycycline contains the active substance Doxycycline. Doxycycline is an antibiotic belonging to a group of medicines called tetracyclines. Along with a number of different types of infections, Doxycycline is used to treat acne.

At the core of its operation, Doxycycline works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis. This action is achieved by binding to a ribosomal subunit of the bacteria, which prevents amino acids from linking together. As a result, the bacteria are unable to function properly due to the absence of these proteins.

What Epiduo Gel is and what it is used for

Epiduo Gel belongs to a group of medicines called “anti-acne preparation for topical use” i.e. it is used for the treatment of acne vulgaris, when comedones (blackheads, whiteheads), numerous papules and pustules (inflammatory pimples) are present.

The gel combines two active ingredients, adapalene and benzoyl peroxide which work together but in different ways:

  • Adapalene belongs to a group of products known as retinoids and acts specifically on the skin processes that cause acne.
  • Benzoyl peroxide, works as an antimicrobial agent and by softening and peeling the outer layer of the skin.
