ret-a or a-ret
« on: December 18, 2011, 04:37:34 PM »

Thanks so much for providing all this great info! I find it very interesting.......I wanted to know is ret-a and a-ret the same thing? I'm assuming so but wanted to double check.

Also, is it possible to get the .10 tretinoin instead of the .05 that you currently have in the store?

I've been using Obagi 1% tretinoin cream and loving it but it would be nice to spend less and get it from your store except it seems to be half the strengh at .5% so just wondering if there would ever be a stonger option to buy?

Yes, A-Ret and Ret-A are the same. It contains Tretinoin = Retinoc acid. No, we do not stock the 0.1%. The more is not always the better, regarding Tretinoin.
