Retinol, is a fat-soluble derivative of Vitamin A which is easily absorbed by the body. It is part of the retinoid family and still considered the gold-standard anti-ageing ingredient by Dermatologists worldwide. When applied to the skin it creates retinoic acid which has superior benefits for the skin – anti-ageing with its ability to repair sun-damaged skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, it helps to treat acne and shrink pores, reduce pigmentation and evens skin tone and rough texture. It also helps to normalise the natural function of the skin. It is seen by Dermatologists worldwide as a gold standard ingredient as it is so multi-beneficial with a high efficacy rate for any of the above skin concerns. These days many products contain encapsulated Retinol for slow delivery into the skin to reduce redness and irritation. It is always a good idea to introduce Retinol into the skin slowly for good tolerance. You should generally only use it at night and always wear a high factor, broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day when using Retinol. It should also not be used in pregnancy or while lactating.
