Beginner: Add up to 1 tube to approx 120 ml of your favourite base cream or oil-based formula.

Advanced: This ingredient is recommended for use at up to 1% in formulations. This ingredient is soluble in organic solvents, fats, and mineral oils but is water dispersable. Stabilize this ingredient with vitamin E (Tocopherol (Vitamin E)) and store the formula in a container which shields it from light. Retinyl acetate is unstable in the presence of acids.

Use only at night, as retinoids are light sensitive.

Warning: High doses of any form of vitamin A may be teratogenic and are contraindicated for use by pregnant women.
