NZ Kowhai & RETINOL 30mL 1.0 fl oz

We are constantly monitoring and compiling research on ingredients associated with ageing skin. Vitamin A (Retinol) has 40 years of study behind it, with an astounding amount of clinical data supporting its benefits in anti-ageing, as a result, Retinol is one of the most sought-after ingredients for the treatment of both acne and ageing.

So, how does it work? Once applied to your skin, it is converted into Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin) – the same compound as the prescription drug, ‘Retin A’. The increase of Retinoic Acid signals cells to produce more collagen and less melanin whilst boosting cellular regeneration; thickening the underlying dermis and reversing signs of ageing. Studies show, topically-applied Retinol also stimulates the synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid, which keeps your skin hydrated and plump, whilst visibly reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

Retinoids also bind to DNA in sebocytes, to balance the amount of sebum (oil) they produce, inhibiting the bacteria that leads to acne.

Caution: In the early stages of treatment, we recommend alternating the days on which you use A+ until your skin has built up enough tolerance for daily use. Because retinoids make your skin photosensitive and more susceptible to UV, we recommend using at night.

      This has quickly become one of our hero products in the salon, with Vitamin A being one of the most researched ingredients in anti-ageing skincare for good reason – really happy its become a firm favourite. Samantha
