Pure crystalline isotretinoin is a yellow-orange powder whose faint odour resembles that of vitamin A. It melts at around 175 °C.
The crystalline product is soluble in chloroform and methylene chloride; it is sparingly soluble in ethanol, 2-propanol and polyethylene glycol (e. g. Lutrol® E 400) and very sparingly soluble in water. Its solubility in soy bean oil is less than 1 mg/100 ml.
