Question:

Hi there,
Just wanted to ask about the Tretinoin 0.05% product, could you please tell me how many IU’s of Vit A there is per gram in the product?

Answer:

Not sure what this converts to, but as it is a topical medication, the absorption into the bloodstream is very low. What makes you ask this question?
