Hey,

I have been searching the forms quite a bit and I still can't seem to find an up to date percentages (strengths) on the different type of topical retinoids.

Can someone please direct me to where I can find the percentages? You could just post them here too if you'd like.

This is the only thing that I have found (but I know that it is not exactly correct):


Retin A
Indicated for Acne
Generic Name: Tretinoin Strengths:0.01% Gel; 0.025% Gel; 0.025% Cream; 0.05% Liquid; 0.05% Cream; 0.1% Cream; 0.1% Micro Gel
Avita
Indicated for Acne. As it's generic is tretinoin, similar skin rejuvenation use considered appropriate
Generic Name:
Strengths:
Differin
Indicated for Acne
Generic Name: Adapalene
Strengths: 0.1% Gel; 0.1% Solution
Tazorac
Indicated for Psoriasis and Acne. Good for those with chronically oily skin or severe blackhead form of acne. Pending indication for skin rejuvenation.
Generic Name:Tazarotene
Strengths: 0.1% Cream; 0.1% Gel; 0.05% Cream; 0.05% Gel
Renova
Generic Name: Tretinoin
Strengths: 0.05% Cream; 0.025% Cream

Thanks so much for the help!

I only know Differin - the ones I've tried have been Differin cream .1, Differin gel .3, and Differin lotion .1

No problem :)

I like Differin .3 gel the best, just FYI. Lotion blows, and cream is nice and gentle.

Do you like the Differin .3 to help with acne, or to help with anti-aging and shallow scars?

Gel is good. Lotion blows. :)
