Shop Vitamin A/Retinol


Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and an anti-aging champion with a reputation for effectiveness that has been well earned. It is an antioxidant that is readily absorbed when applied to the skin, but it is also so much more.

The benefits of Vitamin A/retinol for skin

Retinol’s anti-aging abilities stem from its ability to stimulate collagen production. The production of collagen is essential for combatting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

As we age, cell turnover slows. Vitamin A causes the skin to increase the rate at which new skin cells are made so that old, dull skin is replaced at a quicker rate.

Cosmeceutical grade retinol/vitamin A can help:

  • exfoliate the dull skin
  • Smooth wrinkles and slows aging
  • fight acne
  • fade acne scar and even skin for a radiant glow

Vitamin A is added to many cosmetic products, including moisturisers, sunscreens, vitamin-infused oils, and anti-aging creams. It can also be found as a serum and as an oil, which gives you multiple options for achieving a glowing complexion free of skin concerns like acne and large pores.

 

Please note: for those who are creating their own professional grade skincare routine at home, it is best to avoid layering multiple forms of retinols. This is because while your skin may be able to handle a strong retinol/Vitamin A serum, if you're also using an AHA or retinol moisturiser you may run the risk of sensitising your skin.

 

Always pair retinol products with a highly effective sunscreen.

Gentle but effective

Recently introduced retinal into my skincare routine and have successfully moved to daily use without any irrigation or reaction. Feels light and non sticky on the skin and also not too drying.
