50 Caspules Acnenormin 20mg
How does the ingredient of the medicine work?
The active ingredient isotretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A and belongs to the group of retinoids. Like vitamin A, isotretinoin normalizes the growth and differentiation of skin and mucous membrane cells and lowers an increased rate of cell division. By intervening in the keratin formation, the horny layer is loosened and superficial cells can be exfoliated more easily. Retinoids also influence the immune system and have an anti-inflammatory effect.
