0.05% Tretinoin is strong stuff, especially in gel form since the penetration of Tretinoin from a gel is easier. Tretinoin is very useful for acne, pigmentations, aging skin, sun damaged skin, scars and stretch marks but it is not a skin-friendly substance if you overdose it - it causes skin irritation, redness, excessive peeling, excessive sun sensitivity and itchiness.

In medical studies there was no significant difference in the effectiveness of 0.025% and 0.05%. They were both the same effective. With Tretinoin, the more is not the better - both regarding the percentage of Tretinoin and the amount applied.

 Tretinoin dries up the skin so you have to balance it with a moisturizer.
