Retinol 0.5% Complex
Containing the latest in stabilization and delivery technology, 0.5% Retinol is encapsulated in a phospholipid layer for steady time release and is emulsified in a velvety cream. Touted as a miracle ingredient in modern skincare, Retinol is known for its ability to renew and refresh. Retinol can act intuitively to target individual imperfections. It can also improve the appearance of uneven tone and texture and diminish the look of expression lines and wrinkles. Each Retinol molecule is wrapped in a protective layer of phospholipids that is converted to retinoic acid, also known as Vitamin A, once applied. Glycerin, a Hydrophilic ingredient that draws water to the skin, works synergistically with squalane, an emollient derived from olives, to provide all-day hydration. In addition, this formula includes two lightweight oils, Jojoba Seed Oil and Safflower Seed Oil. These ingredients work synergistically with Ceramide-3 to provide multiple layers of moisture that stay locked in for long lasting hydration. There is less surface irritation because of the unique delivery system combined with hydrating ingredients.
BENEFITS Helps the appearance of a smoother skin texture Diminishes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles Improves uneven skin tone
HOW IT WORKS Each form of Vitamin A undergoes a different process to fully convert the ingredient to retinoic acid. Once the ingredient has been fully converted to Retinoic Acid, it works with skin's natural exfoliation process to ensure an ageless look and feel. Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate are retinoid derivatives of Vitamin A. They convert into Retinoic Acid to smooth the appearance of aging skin and help reduce the appearance of dark spots. Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) is rich in fatty acids, and acts as a lightweight emollient. Derived from olives, Squalane works to deeply moisturize. It has a similar composition to skin's own sebum, which makes it an excellent hydrator. Safflower is one of humanity's oldest crops, and has been cultivated for centuries throughout a multitude of cultures for its oil, emollient and moisturizing qualities. Glycerin is a plant derived humectant that works by balancing moisture levels, helping skin feel smoother and softer. It draws water to itself from the environment, ensuring hydrated skin. Hydrolyzed Coconut Oil (Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride) is an emollient that conditions and moisturizes the outer layer of the skin. Ceramide-3 are lipid molecules that are found in high concentrations within cell membranes. They are found naturally in the skin, and play an important role for the protective layer that holds in moisture
