Retinamide Forté fights acne by tackling the root cause of acne from multiple angles.

This unique formula boasts multifunctional capabilities to fight acne by:

  1. Increasing skin cell shedding to remove acne and acne scars,
  2. Helps to balance the skin microbiome and fight acne-causing bacteria, and 
  3. Balances hormones that contribute to the excess production of androgens. 



▪ To treat mild-moderate acne ▪ Prevent recurring acne  ▪ Remove acne marks



Apply 2 pumps onto freshly cleansed skin in the evening. Massage gently into the skin until absorbed. For best results, follow with the Antioxidants Plus AM Moisturiser and SPF 30+ in the morning. This product works well with our Salicylic Acid Cleanser as part of your acne skincare routine.


Good To Know

▪ Contains natural Manuka Honey and may not be suitable for Vegans. Do not use if you are allergic to honey.

▪ Patch test before use. For external use only.

▪ Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse immediately with water.

▪ If rash or irritation develops, discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, seek immediate medical attention.


▪ We recommend using Retinamide Forté at night after cleansing. Our studies show optimal results are seen after 2 months with consistent daily use. For this reason, we have created the twin pack for your convenience. 

▪ Always apply SPF 30+ or more before going outside. This also helps to prevent acne marks from becoming darker (as well as preventing skin cancer).

▪ If you suffer from severe hormonal acne, speak to our pharmacists for additional tips. Hormonal acne is manageable.

▪ Although there is a lot of conflicting information surrounding acne and acne diet on the internet, we have mounting evidence that the acne diet does matter. Please see our blog for more information.

▪ We understand everyone will respond differently to acne so if you find that this product is not for you, we would be more than happy to provide you with a full refund.

▪ There is not enough data to confirm that exposure to topical retinoids leads to an increase in the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, however, we recommend avoiding Retinoids during pregnancy use as a precaution.

Retinamide Forte Acne Cream

The product is lightweight and absorbs well. It definitely has helped keep my skin clear and the old acne marks are also looking much lighter. I find it offers good value when compared to other acne products. Acne responds differently for everyone and so far this product has been helpful for me so I will be using this from now on.

Thank you so much for leaving us a review :)

Retinamid Forte

I like that the product is not scented, not sticky and dries quickly. Although I still experience the occasional breakouts, they are less severe and I am seeing results. The price point is my only reason for the 4 star.

Hi Natalia,
Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it :)

Kind Regards,

Retinamide Acne Cream

I have had very few breakouts since using this product. My old acne marks have also improved significantly in the last few months. The product is not scented and is goes on very light. Highly recommend.

Retinamide Forte Cream

I love that this does not have a fragrance and feels very light on. I was hesitant to try a cream as I have oily skin and generally prefer a gel product but this moisturiser is non-greasy. I can see my acne marks have improved (lightened) and I have not had new breakouts. My morning routine is Salicylic acid cleanser then a moisturiser then sunscreen (on weekends) I work indoors during the week so I don't bother with sunscreen. Evening routine is Sal cleanser + Retinamide Forte. The product doesn't cause irritation or dryness. I did start to see some peeling on the 3/4 day but my skin didn't get worse (purge). I love that their routines are so simple and easy.

Great acne product

I got this product for my husband who has sensitive and dry skin. He was facing some acne issues lately and we were not sure why he is having this. I had a conversation with one of elle derm representatives and they offered me if My husband would like to use their acne product.

He started using the Retinamide forte along with ellé derm salicylic acid cleanser and in a week his acne was visibly reduced. He was not developing any new acne and previous breakouts were cleared in just few weeks after using both products.

This product worked like magic for his acne. It doesn't cause any irritation on dry skin and is very light weight but also moisturising.

I have used this product couple of times because of its anti ageing properties and loved the result. Whenever I use this moisturiser at night I wake up next day with a smooth and firmer skin.

Hello Sahar,
Thank you so much for reviewing our products. We appreciate your time, and we are so happy both yourself and your husband have found this product beneficial.
Kind Regards,
Team ellé derm xoxo
