1% RETINOL + KANUKA   30mL 1.0 fl oz

With 40 years of study behind Vitamin A in the field of ageing, it’s no wonder it’s considered the “gold standard” in anti-ageing skincare. 

As a skincare expert I am constantly monitoring and compiling studies on ingredient complexes associated with ageing skin. The amount of clinical data that supports the benefit of Retinol is simply astounding, and without a doubt makes it one of the most sought after ingredients for reversing the signs of ageing.

Referred to in the industry as the normalising vitamin, for its ability to convert abnormal skin back to health, it’s because of its incredible normalising property, that this one molecular Retinol is used in both the treatment of acne and ageing.

So how does it work? Vitamin A’s role on the skin is truly remarkable; once applied, it is converted to Retinoic Acid or Tretinoin, which is the same as the prescription drug Retin A, a clever molecule that signals cells to produce more collagen. This increase in Retinoic Acid boosts cellular regeneration, whilst hindering the formation of excess melanin, dark spots on the skin, whilst balances excess sebum on the skin; inhibiting the bacteria that leads to acne.

In fact, studies carried out at the university Michigan medical school showed that topically applied Retinol reversed the signs of photo ageing and physiological ageing such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles and thinning of the underlying dermis. Retinol has also been shown to stimulate collagen and Hyaluronic Acid synthesis, which keeps the skin hydrated and plump.

Caution: In the early stages of treatment while the skin builds up a tolerance, alternate days. Because retinoids make the skin photo-sensitive and more susceptible to UV, I recommend to use at night-time.
