Apply to the affected area once or twice per day. Do not swallow. Ingredients Active ingredient (per 100 g of ointment): Synthetic Vitamin A (from concentrate) – oily form (200,000 international units/IU) Other ingredients: Macrogol 400, macrogol 4000, polysorbate 80 Packaging Tube of ointment (weight: 50 g) Tube composition: aluminium with interior epoxyphenolic coating; polypropylene cap WARNINGS For external use only. Hypervitaminosis is possible if used for a prolonged period. Possible hypervitaminosis poses a greater risk to the body if the ointment is applied repeatedly, thickly or to a large area; if the applied ointment is covered up (e.g. by plasters); or if the ointment is applied to damaged (particularly burnt) skin, to mucous membranes, to premature babies or to very young (but not premature) babies or children (due to the area-to-weight ratio and constriction that may be caused by the wearing of nappies/diapers). Store below 25 °C. Do NOT use if you have: – a history of allergy to any of the ingredients; – infective dermatitis (skin inflammation caused by an infection); or – weeping dermatitis (skin inflammation that oozes fluid) If you are pregnant: If applied topically in the form of an ointment, the chances of vitamin A entering the bloodstream are negligible. However, a lack of case studies makes it difficult to judge the possible effects of cutaneous administration of vitamin A on pregnant women. Consequently, you are advised to use this ointment only if necessary, and never in combination with other medicines containing vitamin A. If you are breast-feeding: Do not apply the ointment to the breasts, since your baby may swallow it. Marketed since 1965. Distributed by PHARMA DEVELOPPEMENT Ltd.
