It is the best retinol cream I have used. It is effective but gentle on the skin! I like the texture. My skin looks better! I have only been using this for a week and I can already see a difference.

As someone who finds prescription retinoids too strong, but most over-the-counter retinoids too weak, A313 hits that perfect sweet spot in the middle. Even though it only contains a retinol ester, it is surprisingly powerful, and I've now tested it against so many other retinoids that I know it works. Is the French girl secret to perfect skin!
At the age of 72 I've decided to do something to improve my skin. After watching a number of French Pharmacy videos I noticed that this product was always Number 1!
A313 Vitamin A Pommade 50g
A313 is the most similar product to Avibon on the market today.
It has always been (and it is) one of the best-kept (cult) secrets of French women: an ointment with retinol.
Its formula allows the retinol to penetrate the skin and the vitamin A to do its work. That is: it moisturizes, prevents wrinkles, fades spots and is also great if you have acne or blackheads.
science behind the best retinoid cream
Scientifically proven benefits of retinoids on the skin
The benefits of retinoic acid and retinol on the skin, demonstrated in clinical studies, are multiple:
1. They promote the proliferation and regeneration of skin cells.
2. Stimulate collagen production in the dermis reducing wrinkles and skin flaccidity.
3. They prevent collagen degradation caused by environmental factors.
4. Lighten the skin and prevent pigmentation by decreasing epidermal melanin formation.
5. Act as antioxidants that neutralize oxidizing molecules (free radicals). This reduces skin damage caused by environmental factors (such as sun and pollution).
6. They reduce acne by preventing dead cells from clogging pores, and also by their anti-inflammatory effect.
