Retinol is a very efficacious substance for the care of ageing and UV damaged skin. Retinol improves and balances the cell renewal process. Retinol helps the epidermis and dermis grow thicker, making it firmer and more elastic. Lines and wrinkles are reduced in number, length, area and width. Complexion looks fresher, clearer, and more hydrated with a healthier glow.
This form of pure Vitamin A is encapsulated in a micro sponge to allow for time released efficacy and less irritation. Initially, when the product is applied to the skin a small percentage of Retinol is released, but after 6 hours the same amount of Retinol has been delivered to the skin as compared to Retinol not encapsulated. This micro-particle delivery system reduces undesirable side effects of Retinol including redness, irritation, and dryness. This encapsulation also helps prolong the shelf life of Retinol due to its sensitivity to light, oxygen and heat.
