Forty years of studies prove retinol's extraordinary age delaying capabilities, and just as many studies show the powerful effects of Vitamin C, especially when combined with Vitamin E. More recent studies show how A, C and E work together to support superior collagen-building and antioxidant effects. Our high tech formula permits anhydrous Vitamin C and microencapsulated retinol, with stabilization assist from Vitamin E, to coexist to deliver near-miraculous results.
Retinol is the safe Vitamin A derivative, not to be confused with retinyl palmitate, which one study shows may enhance tumor growth in the presence of UV, or isotretinoin, which dermatologists prescribe for severe acne.
Gentle Retinol Serum is for aging skin and Treatment Retinol is for acne related issues—same formulation but different categories because your additional products will be different depending on what your skin care concern is.
