What is retinoid dermatitis?

Jul 13, 2022

The term retinoid refers to all substances derived from vitamin A, including the much-loved retinol, which is widely used in cosmetics for its beneficial properties on the skin. However, it may happen that, if these are abused, a form of dermatitis called retinoid dermatitis develops as a side effect. Let's take a closer look at the properties of these valuable active ingredients and what to do if skin inflammation occurs.

The beneficial effects of these active ingredients derived from vitamin A are manifold, in fact they are used on our skin to prevent and combat skin ageing; treat acne, seborrhoea and post-acne. It is also famous for improving skin relief by diminishing wrinkles and enlarged pores and combating hyper-pigmentation.

If not used with caution, however, retinoids can lead to the development of retinoid dermatitis that starts with mild side effects such as slight redness and dryness (with the classic feeling of skin pulling).
