What is retinol and what does it do?
Retinol is the most effective ingredient used in cosmetics for the treatment of lines and signs of aging. In addition, it is one of the most researched skin care ingredients. It belongs to the class of retinoids, i.e. vitamin A derivatives. Retinoids are used in both beauty care and medicine to respond to many different skin care problems.
Retinol enhances the production of skin cells. When new skin cells are produced faster, the skin also regenerates faster. This fades skin lines, acne scars, evens out unevenness and can even reverse sun damage such as pigmentation marks. The skin becomes smoother, more glowing and healthier.
Retinol has a sebum-reducing effect. Together with this and the ability to regenerate quickly, the skin is not blocked so easily, which means that impurities are reduced. Retinol revives collagen production and inactivates collagen-degrading enzymes. The skin is stronger, thicker and more elastic.
Retinol acts as an antioxidant, i.e. it protects the skin by fighting free radicals that damage the skin.
When used correctly, retinol improves the skin’s protective layer and can reduce skin dryness. This is because the use of retinol increases, for example, the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in the skin!
Peptides stimulate collagen production
Bakuchiol is a plant-based alternative to retinol, and an effective anti-aging ingredient too
Niacinamide (5%) brightens and smoothes the skin
HOW TO USE
