Vitamin A

Vitamin A is available in several forms and one, the acid, is specifically prohibited from use in cosmetics under the UK rules because of its side-effects at high doses. Other forms of vitamin A (retinol and retinyl esters such as retinyl palmitate and retinyl acetate) are safely used in skin care products to boost skin cell renewal.
