This powerhouse Retinol based product reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thickens and strengthens the epidermis and barrier function, all the while decongesting skin and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It contains the highest Vitamin A percentage available in over-the-counter skincare.
Retinol is the most widely used retinoid (Vitamin A) in skincare because it is well tolerated by the skin. It is converted to retinoic acid in the skin in a two-step enzymatic process and in this bioavailable form it binds to the retinoic receptors in the keratinocyte. It has a significant effect on improving the appearance of prematurely aged skin as well as reducing hyperpigmentation and dryness. Effectively reducing the appearance of wrinkles without inducing skin irritation, Retinol can regenerate the skin, therefore protects the skin from accelerated ageing. Retinol stimulates hyaluronic acid synthesis, improving skin hydration and elasticity which otherwise may lead to wrinkle formation. Retinol being a potent collagen booster, improves skin firmness, fullness, and smoothness. Retinol also helps to control acne by down- regulating the cohesiveness of keratinised skin cells that line and plug the pores.
