Skin Care Overview

The human skin is the outer covering of the body. In humans, it is the largest organ of the integumentary system. The skin has multiple layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs.[1] Human skin is similar to that of most other mammals.

epitrel acido retinoico

We would like the instructions for using the above product because it is in Spanish. Thanks ## Hi Sam, The english translation for this med is Retinoic acid, more commonly known as Retin-A (Tretinoin); which is indicated as a topical treatment for acne.
