While Adapalene works by impacting the growth of cells and reducing swelling and inflammation, Benzoyl Peroxide works by lowering the amount of acne-causing bacteria and by causing the skin to dry and peel off.

Zydus Lifesciences will manufacture Adapalene and Benzoyl Peroxide Topical Gel drug at its topical facility in Ahmedabad.

As per IQVIA MAT on April 22, Adapalene and Benzoyl Peroxide Topical Gel had a market size of $195 million.
