3.4 Retinol Serum, 30ml
Our Advanced Retinol Serum helps prevent collagen breakdown and accelerates cellular turnover for smoother and plumper skin. It also reduces the appearance of Age Spots and Hyper-Pigmentation. In addition to healing and protecting skin from signs of aging, retinol serum also is an effective treatment for acne skin. It helps unclog pores to reduce blemishes and fade away acne scars.
Retinol Serums are Scientifically proven to be one of the most effective ingredients to improve fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, skin texture, skin tone and color, as well as your skin's hydration levels. This plant-based anti-aging Serum has an extremely high percentage of 3.4% Retinol. Our pure vitamin A (retinol) is based on a nano-delivery system. The vitamin A is incorporated in a non-visible microcapsules made of a shell of a natural sugar complex (carboxymethyl cellulose-chitosan). This capsule stabilizes retinol to avoid degradation reactions. It delivers retinol gradually, so a sustained and long lasting release is achieved.

Oil free, absorbs quickly without a heavy, greasy or sticky feel.
Begin using a pea-size amount once weekly. Gradually increase how often, but not how much; based on how your skin response. If any redness or irritation is noted the next day, you should skip that night’s application.
Apply your retinol serum to the entire face and neck. Wait three minutes and apply a small amount of moisturizer. Use the retinol serum for two nights on, one night off, alternating with an exfoliating acid serum (such as AHA, BHA serums etc.) and a nourishing treatment serum.
Since retinol is pushing up skin cells to the surface at a faster rate, retinol can cause micro-peeling (invisible peeling) in most skin types, so it’s best to alternate with other serums. Because it takes two days for the cells to regenerate to the surface and cause the skin to get flaky, using an exfoliating serum (such as our 5% or 10% Glycolic Acid Serum) on the third day is perfect to remove the surface dead cells that appear. Also, retinol may work even better when used back on the skin on the forth and fifth day, because now it can penetrate deeper into the skin because of the acid exfoliation the night before. Then, a hydrating or replenishing serum is added to the mix once a week (on the sixth day) to give the skin a break, using barrier repair and nourishing ingredients to keep the skin calm and hydrated. Repeat the cycle. It’s also important to do it this way simply because the skin performs its best when it has a variety of high-performance ingredients instead of the same one ingredient night in and night out.
