Retinol (Vitamin A)

Retinol is highly recognized as a very effective vitamin for anti- aging treatment due to its capacity to stimulate collagen production, accelerate cell reproduction and normalize skin keratinization. Its regular application significantly improves skin elasticity, smoothness, and softness, resulting in younger, clearer and healthier looking skin.  Nevertheless, Retinol is highly sensitive to oxidation and degradation in the presence of air. These challenges were overcomes with a stabilized pure Retinol in a microencapsulation, it helps to improve the performance and shelf life of the final formula.  This Encapsulated Retinol is easily released upon rubbing action.  Until the moment of application, Retinol remains fresh and potent.

“Retinol, however, sinks into your skin and speeds up cell turnover, causing your body to churn out fresher, smoother skin again,” says Dermatologist Mona Gohara, M.D., associate clinical professor at Yale University. Because Retinol cause skin to shed cells faster than normal, you may experience some reactions such as irritation, flakiness, dryness or breakouts, until your skin gets through the adjustment period. That’s why professional suggested to use gentle formula and also to start slowly particularly if you have sensitive skin. That is, to apply Retinol once a week, twice a week and then add on gradually.

To get a long-term benefits, dermatologist Tobechi Ebede, M.D., clinical assistant professor in dermatology at Cornell, recommended that “You have to use these products most nights..… They are changing your skin, and if you don’t use them routinely, your skin will go right back to baseline.” It will take at least 2-3 months of consistent application to notice some reduction in fine lines, dark spots, and acne.

There are many types of Retinol in the market, some are mild and some are strong and needed to be prescribed. Dr. Gohara suggested startling with the gentlest and moving up to higher strength over after a year. Regardless of what strength of Retinol you use, they’re all effective in the long run. Studies from National Library of Medicine show that you’ll reach the same long-term anti-aging effects over time with a low-strength or moderate-strength retinoid.
