Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare.
When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the active form of vitamin A.
Retinoic acid works to help support collagen synthesis and prevent its breakdown for visibly plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
It can also help to speed up the natural exfoliation process while decreasing melanin production, for a visibly smooth, more evenly toned complexion.
The results-driven serum is enriched withclimbazole, a proven retinol-booster.
Climbazole works by helping to block the enzyme which breaks down retinoic acid, meaning a reservoir of retinoic acid is left in the skin.
This prolongs and enhances the anti-ageing effects without incurring any additional irritation.
Retinol has the potential to cause some irritation when first introducing it into a skincare regime.
Time Release Technology, found in all Medik8 vitamin A products, helps to minimise irritation while maximising visible results.
Our Intelligent Retinol serum protects retinol in a polymer reservoir, essentially working as a protective shield between retinol and the skin.
The polymer reservoir slows down how quickly the retinol is able to penetrate into the skin, gently delivering the active into the skin throughout the night.
The Intelligent formula is delivered in a silky, squalane-infused serum.
Squalane is a skin-identical oil that effortlessly slips into the natural skin barrier, infusing the complexion with nightly moisture while supporting the integration of retinol into your skincare routine.
By being a water-free formulation, we have secured the stability of the powerful, yet fragile retinol molecule.
