What does it do? Retinol continues to be the hero ingredient used in anti-ageing skincare. It has an incredible reputation for smoothing away lines, firming the skin and combating the visible signs of ageing. In a study run by health and beauty company Amway Corporation, they concluded the topical use of Retinol had a “significant facial anti-aging effect” on skin. We’ve combined Retinol with Vitamin E, known for its protective antioxidant effects on the skin. Glycerin is used for its humectant properties which help to boost the moisture in this formula with the aim to hydrate and plump ageing skin.
Treatment Type: Facial Serum.
Key Benefits: Retinol is a superstar anti-ageing ingredient; also known as pure vitamin A. It's been found to smooth lines and wrinkles while firming the skin, and is the hot ingredient in anti-ageing skincare because of its high performance. It's also been shown to help with acne by reducing excessive sebum production.₁ Tocopherol is a form of skincare heavyweight Vitamin E - a vitamin that occurs naturally in our skin. Known to be an antioxidant, it acts as a barrier against UV rays and free radicals that destroy collagen and speed up the aging process. It's also moisturising and absorbs quickly into the skin.₂ Glycerin is known for being an excellent humectant, meaning it retains moisture. It occurs naturally in our skin, and in skincare it can help to protect the skin’s barrier against damaging environmental aggressors.₃ Skin Types: Ideal for all skin types.
Skin Concerns: This serum was made to target the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by ageing. How to Use: Every morning and evening, take a pea-sized amount of the serum and massage onto clean, dry skin. Leave to absorb for a few minutes. Use after you’ve cleansed and toned, and before your creams and eye care. See the best results with our Retinol Intelligent Repair Stimulating 8 Hour Night Cream.
