Retinamide Forté treats acne and acne marks, as well as prevents recurring acne with daily use. 

This unique formula has been redesigned, redefined and supercharged by Barrier-C.

Barrier-C is our proprietary blend of naturally occurring antibacterial and prebiotics designed to improve skin barrier function and control sebum production. The new formula combines incredible functionality and a lightweight texture to tackle acne from multiple angles.



▪ To treat mild-moderate acne ▪ Prevent recurring acne  ▪ Remove acne marks ▪ Teenage & Adult Hormonal Acne



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. 

▪ 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.

Non drying

I have combination skin with an oily t zone in particular the forehead. This doesn't cause the face to shine and dries quickly. I have noticed a good improvement after trying it for a few weeks.

Acne Cream

I introduced this into my routine over 3 months ago and have noticed a difference to my skin and improvements in the breakouts. I recommend giving this a try.

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,

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.
