General Information

Avita cream, a topical form of retinoic acid, has been approved for the treatment of acne. The two Avita formulations approved contain .025 percent retinoic acid (tretinoin) as the active ingredient. These strengths represent the largest segment of prescriptions written for retinoic acid acne treatment.

Avita is a unique formulation of retinoic acid (tretinoin) and Penederm’s patented TopiCare Delivery Compounds. TopiCare Delivery Compounds are liquid polymers that deposit and hold drugs and other skin care agents in the upper layers of the skin. TopiCare Delivery Compounds are currently in wide use to enhance moisturizers, cosmetics and other skin care products.
