Verwon Says:

That is correct, they both contain Tretinoin, the acid form of Vitamin A, though it does have more uses than just as an antiwrinkle cream, such as being used to treat acne.

Learn more Tretinoin details here.

However, if the ones you have are several years old, it is likely that they are expired and no longer retain their effectiveness, so you may want to check on that, before using it.

Are there any questions or comments?
