What is Retino-A® 0.025 / 0.05 tretinoin cream

Retino-A 0.025 – 0.05 tretinoin cream also known as Retinol, Retinoic Acid, concentrated Vitamin A cream or Yellow peels – is an analog/alternative to famous Renova, Revita, and Retin-A creams. Retino-A tretinoin cream is made by a reputable Johnson&Johnson company and has two different concentrations: mild strength 0.025 percent and moderate strength 0.05% of all-trans-retinoic-acid (tretinoin). Retino-A cream with 0.025% and 0.05% tretinoin component is manufactured by Johnson&Johnson company.

Retino-A cream facilitating the disappearance of darker and lighter spots on photodamaged skin and hyperpigmented skin, or with other topical treatments to treat alopecia and other kinds of hair loss.

Tretinoin component is important in terms of not only increasing skin-cell growth rate but increasing cell membrane nutrients to increase oxygen transport, which supports the collagen matrix. It is a daily aid to keep the cells functioning properly, not just increasing cell turnover. The skin-cell maturation process may take 21 days. But the movement of cells and maturation is hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly. Different cells are transforming all the time. When the primitive look is to say cell turnover is every 28 days — it’s every second. The pure retinol (retinoic acid or tretinoin) is the skin product that allows that and it should be included in your anti-aging or acne treatment skincare regimen.

Any tretinoin cream must be used with a total sun avoidance program. Tretinoin is one of the acids family called retinoids, powerful exfoliant/chemical peel, and is effective in preventing acne and healing existing acne conditions. Brand names: Retin-A, Renova, Avita, Refissa, Atralin. You can always buy tretinoin cream in the OKDERMO skincare store, tretinoin cream coupon is also applicable if you a loyal customer.

How does Retino-A® 0.025 / 0.05 tretinoin cream work

Explanation of Retin-A cream (tretinoin) anti-aging and wrinkle treatment benefits. Tretinoin is an artificial vitamin A derivative used by dermatologists and skin care professionals to combat aging and acne for over 20 years. It started out as a treatment for acne when most mid-age people using tretinoin cream for the anti-acne purpose soon discovered that their skin became firmer, fresher, smoother, and younger-looking as a result of the acne treatment. Dermatologists then began researching the benefits of tretinoin as an anti-aging treatment.

  • Tretinoin works by increasing cell turnover within the skin, stimulating collagen production, and exfoliating the top layers of skin to reveal, the fresher younger-looking skin underneath;
  • In addition to decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, it can prevent new ones from forming, fade discoloration and sun damage, reduce the risks of developing skin cancer and improve the skin’s texture and elasticity;
  • Currently, tretinoin also known as Yellow peel is the only topical treatment for wrinkles that is FDA approved and is extremely effective.

How to use Retino-A® 0.025 / 0.05 tretinoin cream

  • Wash the area with warm soapy water or a soap-free cleanser and rinse with water;
  • Remove all cosmetics before applying the gel. Gently dry the area. Wait 15 minutes to make sure that the skin surface is completely dry;
  • Squeeze a small amount (quarter inch or less) of cream onto your fingertip. This should be enough to cover the affected area;
  • Apply cream to the affected area once a day, preferably in the evening or just before bedtime;

Do not use Retino-A® 0.025 / 0.05 tretinoin cream

  • Always consult to your dermatologist prior start using any tretinoin cream;
  • Either pregnant or may become pregnant during use, less than 18 years old;
  • Allergic to any of its ingredients or suffering from eczema (tretinoin may cause severe irritation);
  • Suffering from rosacea or perioral dermatitis skin conditions or using any skin peeling cream or other substance that contains resorcinol, salicylic acid or sulfur are, or have been, exposed to sunlight for a longer period of time;
  • Do not use more than once a day. Using more frequently does not improve results and may lead to adverse reactions.

    Jordan Sanchez

    This product is legit, it took about 6 weeks to see noticeable changes, from week 1-4, it was hell. like HELL. I was near depression and could not look at people in the eye from my purge. But from about week 6 onward, it got better. I’m on week 10-11 at the moment, and my skin has stayed pretty good, no new white heads or any inflamed acne, just left with a dozen red/brown marks. Again, I’m being patient on the marks and do hope over the next couple of month I will have smooth and clear skin. I also took Benzoyl Peroxide 2.5% (morning) as side treatment. Overall, highly recommended, makes you a stronger person too by testing your patient.

    Tretinoin cream works pretty well for me when I’ve used it. I’m fortunate not to get much peeling skin and redness from it- just some dryness, but I don’t always use the the product straight up on my skin (I mix it with a bit of moisturizer if my skin already feels a bit dry). It never cured my acne completely but when I’ve used it I’ve noticed a big difference in the number and severity of my acne lesions- enough for me to really recognize the difference in my skin.

    Amy Frazier

    I started using Tretinoin 0.05% cream 16 days ago (i know not long), but my active pimples on my cheeks are so smooth now! There is still scarring/discoloration, but i am very impressed. I read a lot of reviews saying that your skin will purge, but mine has done nothing but improve everyday. Makeup applies so much smoother and evenly now! I am obsessed and pray that this continues to clear up my face. I would recommend to anyone! PS: I was putting rubbing alcohol on my face as a spot treatment prior to using this prescription cream, that may be why i didn’t have the initial “purge”. Also, I read that the gel is better for acne because the cream may clog pores (just FYI). Will order gel next time and text.

    hello everyone! for the past few months I was suffering with horrible big pus-filled acne and I had try everything to cure my acne. It was such a long journey. I have never been so happy as I am now because my skin is now clear and there is only acne marks left. my routine is, on the morning I wash my face then apply benzoyl peroxide 5% gel on my acne area. just apply it thinly. then after 30 mins, apply moisturiser. on the night, i apply retino-a cream. 0.05. my skin started to clear after 1 monts of using this routine. besides, to avoid the initial purging I took doxycycline for 1 month only. I promised myself to write a review here and inspire others to be patient and wait for the result. I am so happy and grateful for what I am now. be patience because retin a is amazing. seriously, I really love it.

  17. 4 out of 5


    Acne sucks we all know that, you feel ashamed of yourself, you can’t look at people’s eyes and ugh it’s hard, I know. This product WILL cure you. In two weeks, three, or even months, but it will trust me. It just depends on your skin. Well my skin is 40% cured in the last two days in the FIRST WEEK! the first five days my face peeled alot, it was red i mean, too red. but it’s not as bad as it sounds, i handled it fine, and you will too! yes, i broke out, but so what? we always break out, but this time you will break out for a reason, to clear your skin, consider it as process, believe me i was too afraid to use it, but i’m so glad i did! just take it easy and go for it! PLEASE! IT WILL WORK!

    I absolutely love this product and this loverly user friendly store. The product arrived within 2 weeks after ordering. Tretinoin helps with skin discoloration and acne. The cream form is much better for me than the gel form. I have been using this product for about two years and it has done wonders for my skin, wrinkles disappeared at all. Any drawbacks, that it is a great product for such a low price!

    I am a 42 years old asian lady living in UK, I use retin A cream for 5 years now, and it is really perfect. I put it on my face at night and i put sunscreen during the day. My skin is better than before and i look younger everyday 🙂 The only problem with this cream is the I need a prescription to buy it here, and they give it on prescription only for acne. I used to buy it on Ebay, but they don’t sell it anymore, they sell only generic low quality tretinoin creams, but happy i still can buy it on, the only legit place to buy my favorite cream, stay healthy and beautiful! Best wishes to okdermo!

    This was the only site I could find that would ship to Canada. Retin A is not allowed into Canada. I trusted the reviews I found online and took a chance. I was concerned about two things. First, would it make it pass customs and second, the expiry date. I ordered on Feb 19th. and it arrived March 5th. so it took 15 days, Fast considering it came from India. The expiry day is October 2021, so a year and a half away. I’M VERY PLEASED with Okdermo. This isn’t a generic product, this is the real Retino A from Johnson & Johnson. I hope this is the solution to my skin problems, time will tell but I will definitely be ordering from this company again.
