What is Trentinoin?


Happy December 💜 We thought we’d start the month off with information about an important ingredient in our skin care tool box. Tretinoin is a prescription grade cream that is an important aid in treating acne as well as helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It’s brand name is Retin-A, perhaps a more familiar name for you. Tretinoin is a molecule of vitamin A that boosts skin cell turn over and also helps to produce collagen and elastin which helps with overall appearance and firmness of the skin. For acne treatment, tretioin has been approved by the FDA for both adults and children over the age of 13 for decades.
