Breastfeeding and Retinols/Retin A etc.
Your welcome! I always think it’s good to ask your OB when in doubt but…………this Retinol concentration is unlikely to get into the bloodstream using a pea sized amount or so on your face at night.
Retinoid compounds are vitamin A counsins and they stay in the skin well at these concentrations. Also, Retinol is a much weaker form of it than the prescription forms, which is why I use it in the summer and then switch back to the stronger prescription form in the winter. A Retinol .25% would be a good choice in this situation, but double check with your OB .
