A skin perfecting retinol serum that improves skin’s surface as it treats signs of sun damage, rough texture, wrinkles, and surface imperfections.
Retinol is an inherently unstable ingredient and is typically dissolved in oil to stabilise. 0.5% Retinol is an anhydrous, well tolerated, stable formulation which can be used by a wider range of skin types. A powerful therapy without the inherent oiliness of conventional Retinol therapies.
Retinol: Promotes cell turnover, encouraging new cell growth and inhibits collagen breakdown.
Best way to use
Limit initial use to three times per week, applying two to three drops, only in the evening after cleansing. Gradually increase the frequency of application to every night. If using a water-based serum, this should be applied before the retinol.
