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 0.12% of the mildest forms of vitamin A, called retinol esters. 

0.12% of retinol esters is not the same as a 0.1% of pure retinoic acid. 

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.

I'm just coming to the end of my first tube and just ordered my second one. The results are incredible on my skin I now have better skin at 45 than I've ever had before even in my 20s my skin wasn't as flawless as it is now. It has cleared lots of pigmentation marks and just generally made my skin look incredible and I can't wait to see what the next year's results will bring .

I've been using this for two years now. I've seen drastic improvement on my sun damaged decolletage. I gave up on my neck due to sensitivity but am trying again this winter and have had great results on my again, very sun damaged, face. I burned off a huge wart on my hand with this stuff, this summer - it took 3 months and a tiny red blemish remains; I expect that to fade this winter. It took 8 months of using 3-4 times per week mixed in with a moisturiser before I could apply it concentrate on my face. My jowls have firmed up and many of my sun spots have vanished - not all but the improvement is impressive. Fine wrinkles have improved - most noticeably the lines around my upper lip and the look of my skin is markedly better, as are smaller pores and blackheads, and sun damage. It does cause photosentivity so more sunscreen is required. I find it drying and a lot more moisturiser is required to keep my skin from drying. I find Sensibiafine suitably rich and with CeraVe Healing Ointment I literally slather it on, morning and night.

Love it

Only used a couple of times yet but very surprised how strong it feels on the skin. I've tried other retinol products with higher strength but this seems different somehow. I can't wait to see the results of long term use I have read about from other reviews . I'm hoping I have the same results of the majority of users.

Best retinol benefits for the price

I have been using several retinol based products and this pommade is by far the best! My skin is considerably smoother, plumper and more hydrated the morning after each use, fail proof. Pores are also smaller after it I did learn the hard way, after numerous sleepless itchy nights, that it must be applied on completely dry skin; that means hours after showering or, my learned trick, blow dried face : )) I am expecting to be using this for years to come and I already recommended and got many friends hooked on it too
