Vitamin A - 0.5% Retinol
This product is currently sold out.
A skin-perfecting Retinol serum that improves skin’s surface as it treats signs of sun damage, rough texture, wrinkles, and surface imperfections. Made by Skin Functional.
Retinol is an inherently unstable ingredient and is typically dissolved in oil to maintain it’s stability. 0.5% Retinol is a well-tolerated, stable formulation that can be used by a wider range of skin types. A powerful therapy without the inherent oiliness of conventional Retinol therapies.
Retinol, a Vitamin A derivative, is effective for aging, acne and dark spot concerns. Retinol inhibits collagen breakdown that causes elastosis, unclogs blocked pores, reducing acne breakouts. Promotes cell turnover, encouraging new cell growth for a more even complexion.
BEST WAY TO USE
Limit initial use to three times per week, applying two to three drops, only in the evening after cleansing. Gradually increase the frequency of application to every night. If using a water-based serum, this should be applied before the 0,5% Retinol.
