A313 Pommade 50g


A313 - The New Avibon


***maximum 3 tubes per customer***

A313 cream is a pharmaceutical-grade vitamin A sold over-the-counter in France.

This oily (pommade means ointment) contains retinyl palmitate. A mild retinol ester. 

Retinyl palmitate is mixed with polyethylene glycol (PEG or "macrogol"), serving two main purposes. Firstly, it stabilizes the vitamin A to maintain its activity without degradation. Secondly, it functions as a penetration enhancer, aiding the absorption of vitamin A into the skin.

It can be used for:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation (also for post-acne marks)
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Acne, oily skin, blackheads


It's a very thick, greasy and translucent ointment. 

How to use A313:

General warnings:

  • Don't use it if you have an allergy to one of the ingredients
  • Don't use it on infected or weeping skin lesions, mucous membranes or burns
  • Talk to your doctor before using it if you are pregnant
  • Don't store it above 25°C (77°F)
  • Do a test patch first
  • Make sure your skin is completely dry
  • Avoid other retinol based products
  • Always wear sunscreen when using it!

We recommend to: 

  • Use it at night

Start with a gradual application, such as twice a week for the first week and then slowly increase

  • Use a small amount
  • Spread it in a thin layer
  • Expect itching and flaking:

    While making sure your skin is dry, you will probably notice some irritation during the first few applications. Try to ride it out if you can, because this eventually goes away once your skin gets used to it. if too much irritation occur, then stop and leave a few days before reapplying. 

  • Start slowly:
  • Use it once a week for one week, twice a week for two weeks, and then three times a week for three weeks. After that, you can keep increasing the frequency or stop there if it's all you can tolerate.

Holy Grail of Retinol

All the hype on this is 100% on the money. Flight attendant friends have been buying when in France & bringing back for years. So grateful it can be ordered here. This product is the best, and I’ve tried probably 20 other brands.

My sensitive skin tolerates it, and I think it works so far

I have rosacea and very sensitive skin. I had no luck with what I thought were various "gentle" retinol type products. My skin never adjusted and was always red and inflamed. In an article on intothegloss, this one was listed as one of the absolute most gentle, by far. It has not caused any redness! The texture really feels like Vaseline, maybe thicker. It takes a while to kind of settle, but I don't think it ever really absorbs all night. I try to put it on at least as hour before bed so it can settle a bit and it won't all just wipe off on my pillow case. Anyway I think it has improved my rosacea and overall tone and skin texture. my skin looks pretty good! It stings a bit for a few seconds when I wash it off in the morning, but i have had this experience with all retinol products. I have been using A313 since mid April 2023 and despite the texture of the product, I am very happy with the results so far. I will probably continue for a long time, and i gave a tube to my sister to try as well.
