Renova is only for use on the skin. Wash your hands both before and after applying Renova Cream. Apply Renova Cream to your face once a day. Gently wash your face with a mild soap, pat the skin dry, and wait 20 to 30 minutes before applying the cream. As applying it on the wet skin may cause skin irritation. Apply a pea-sized amount of cream to cover your entire face. You may feel a warmth or slight stinging when Renova Cream is first applied. Store this cream at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep the bottle tightly closed when not in use.

Wait until such condition has healed before using Renova cream.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
