Differin Gel background

New Differin Gel contains 0.1% adapalene — a retinoid dermatologists have prescribed to over 40 million people globally for more than 20 years. According to the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) therapeutic treatment guidelines, topical retinoids are recommended as a primary therapy for initial treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne. Due to the successful track record of Differin Gel in helping to diminish acne, we’re excited to bring it to a wider group of people — many who have been long-time acne sufferers and tried nearly every other over-the-counter acne treatment out there. Now, for the first time ever, Differin Gel is available without a prescription.
