Can I trust your Retin A cream? Where do you get it from?
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:11:39 PM »
Hi Sarah - I've already ordered  a bunch of the dermaneedling products to get started, but just wondering.......
the Retin A, I'm guessing must not be prescription in Europe as it is in the U.S.?  Where does your Retin A product come from?  Does Europe have some agency similar to FDA; to say the product is safe for use?  Curious.........  Thanks.

Even though your question is pushing the limits of our forum rules (publicly assuming we may sell unsafe products), here we go :-)

You can see a picture of the Retirides tube here:

(enlarge it by clicking on it).

We buy the tubes OTC from a pharmacy or multiple pharmacies in one of the very few European countries that allow that: Spain. Spanish pharmacies still only allow occasional small purchases for personal use, so we have a subcontractor in Spain that does nothing else but buying tubes and dropshipping them for us. So when you order this product, it is always shipped separately from your main order, and you'll find a Spanish postage stamp on the package. The tube comes with a list of ingredients enclosed by the manufacturer, but we also list them in our store.

European pharmaceuticals are subjected to at least the same strict tests, licensing and manufacturing regulations than in the US. The regulations are extremely strict, so strict that they seem to be designed to allow only the largest multinational pharmaceutical corporations to supply the European market.
