Using Lotion Containing AHA Safe While on Accutane?

I just started 40mg of Accutane about a week ago and aha seems to be helping my skin so far, so I'm just wondering if it is still safe to use. I use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion with AHA. Thanks!

No problem with AHA lotion while on Accutane

I can not foresee a problem with using an AHA with Accutane. In fact it should act as a fairly nice moisturizer. Neutragena's Healthy Skin Face Lotion is a particularly well formulated product.
