The Science Behind Retinol

Retinol, the #1 dermatologist recommended anti-aging ingredient, is a pure form of Vitamin A that is naturally found in your skin. Skin has its own natural renewal process, but as we age, skin renews itself less often. As a result, early signs of aging, such as fine lines, large pores, and uneven skin tones start to show. Retinol helps to fight signs of aging by supporting surface skin cell renewal to complement your skin’s natural processes and to visibly improve signs of aging.

Not all retinols are created equal.

Don’t be fooled by ingredients that sound like Retinol – look for the real thing. Retinol is a pure form of Vitamin A. Other forms of Vitamin A, such as Retinyl Ester and Retinyl Palmitate, may be less effective than Retinol. In fact, Retinol is scientifically proven in its ability to provide skin benefits.
