What is TAZAROTENE CREAM used for?


Tazarotene Cream is a topical medication specifically designed to treat acne and plaque psoriasis( an autoimmune disorder that leaves red raised patches and scaly rashes all around the body) as well as to prevent pimples, spots, whiteheads and blackheads. This cream is the perfect cure-all for all these skin disorders because it not only reduces the reappearance of red patches and scaly rashes but it also relieves pain and itching that are normally referred to as symptoms of psoriasis.

How does it work?


Tazarotene Cream contains a retinoid pro-drug called tazarotenic acid that binds itself to a receptor of retinoid acid, a Vitamin A metabolite, thus affecting the hardening processes of the outer layer of our skin and relieving symptoms associated with pimples, blackheads, spots or acne. When we take all these effects into consideration, we may easily realize how the combined ingredients of this cream can bring about normal cell growth to facilitate overall skin health.

How to Use:


  • Apply the cream to the affected area once a day, preferably in the evening or just before going to bed
  • Clean your skin with a soap-free cleanser or mild soap thoroughly. Rinse and dry the area afterwards
  • Apply a small amount to your fingertips and rub it in thoroughly
  • Do not go over the recommended dosage, for your skin will not clear up quicker that way.
  • Do not apply to severely inflamed skin or open wounds.
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose and mouth.
