Retinol⁺ Serum (1 fl oz)
Retinol⁺ Serum (1 fl oz)
Lactic + Glycolic
A 3-In-1 supercharged Retinol Serum. A highly effective skin conditioning treatment which contains Retinol, Alpha Hydroxy - Lactic and Glycolic Acid, and Sea Algae which addresses undesirable skin texture. Vitamin A (Retinol) encourages cellular turnover and skin renewal, making this serum ideal for those concerned about accelerated signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, breakouts, and a number of skin concerns. It's a resurfacing serum that nourishes and clarifies while offering transformative benefits that enhance the appearance of revitalized skin.
- Encapsulated Retinol - contains 5% Encapsulated Retinol. Retinol is good for skin but Encapsulated Retinol is even better at reversing the signs of aging. It is more stable and efficacious, having the ease of traveling and targeting the skin cells where it is most beneficial. Encapsulated retinol works similarly to regular retinol, however it delivers its powers into skin a little differently. Encapsulated Retinol has been housed in a carrier system to protect its integrity and improve its ability to penetrate into the skin effectively. Once it is on the skin, it divides and conquers by delivering the lipid-loving retinol to exactly the part of the skin where it provides the most benefit to the skin cells. At the same time, the crystalline particles create a protective shield on the skin surface to prevent dehydration.
** Retinoids work from the deeper layers of the skin upwards (unlike hydroxy acid exfoliants), so having a carrier system to deliver the retinol effectively to the lower levels of the skin means it can target the right area and achieve the results you're looking for. It's also volatile to air and UV so can easily lose its effectiveness if not protected by encapsulation.
- Lactic Acid 5% - A moisturizing alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) with a larger molecular size than Glycolic Acid that increases skin’s hydration, pliability and flexibility. It gently buffs away dulling skin cells for a brighter and smoother complexion, excellent for more sensitive skin, dark or hyperpigmented skin.
- Glycolic Acid 5% - has the smallest sized molecules of all the alpha-hydroxy acids. Because of these super tiny molecules, Glycolic Acid can easily penetrate the skin. This allows Glycolic Acid to exfoliate the skin more effectively than other AHAs. It works by speeding up cell turnover. It helps dissolve the bonds that hold skin cells together, allowing dead skin cells to slough off more rapidly than they would on their own. Glycolic Acid is an example of an acne-fighting acid. This alpha hydroxy acid that’s derived from sugarcane can help those with frequent breakouts and a number of other skincare concerns. Stimulates epidermal stem cells and dermal fibroblasts. Significantly supports the maintenance of epidermal stem cell activity encouraging skin rejuvenation.
- Tego Stemlastin (Algae Extract) - Naturally derived from Cyanidium Caldarium Algae which is rich in extremolytes-like mineral nutrients, amino acids and polyphenols and GABA (gamma amino butryric acid).
