So, what is retinol acetate?

Retinol acetate is a synthetic form of vitamin A, commonly used as an ingredient in dietary supplements and fortified foods. It is produced by combining retinol (a type of alcohol) with acetic acid, which enhances its stability and bioavailability. Retinol acetate is essential for healthy vision, skin, and immune function, and is often used to treat conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and other inflammatory skin disorders. However, excessive intake of retinol acetate can lead to toxicity and adverse side effects, so it is important to consume it in moderation and under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
