What is Adaclene Gel?
Adaclene Gel containing the active ingredient adapalene belongs to a class of medications called retinoids (a form of vitamin A). The medicated gel is used to prevent pimples, blackheads and spots formation under the surface of the skin to get rid of mild to moderate acne. The medication can unclog pores and sebaceous glands by preventing an accumulation of oil on the skin.
