Does anybody have experience using Topical Vitamin A for acne of dandruff? What product do you use and how should it be applied?
I eat liver weekly and cheese and eggs often.

Vit a is highly unsaturated, that's the simple reason for its toxicity in combination with sunlight I suppose.If we're using topical vitamin A should we be worried about sunlight? According to this it's dangerous:
EWG's 10th Annual Guide to Safer Sunscreens
A study by U.S. government scientists suggests that retinyl palmitate, a form of vitamin A, may speed the development of skin tumors and lesions when applied to the skin in the presence of sunlight (NTP 2012). Officials in Germany and Norway have cautioned that retinyl palmitate and other vitamin A ingredients in cosmetics could contribute to vitamin A toxicity due to excessive exposure (German BfR 2014, Norwegian SCFS 2012a).
Anyone know how to interpret that study?

So even though Ray recommends topical application of vitamin A, it's dangerous if that body part gets sun exposure? I'm confused and wondering why he never mentioned that.
Mega-doses of retinoids are used for acne. They always come with a warning to avoid the sun. The extreme example is accutane (aka Isotretinoin) which has strong warnings about sun exposure. I sadly was put on this in my teens. Wrecked me and may be the reason for my liver/gallbladder issues an ongoing digestion issues.
