The product of 8 years of work, revolutionary molecule retinyl retinoate fuses together traditional retinol and the active form of vitamin A, retinoic acid.
Its encapsulated form is exclusive to Medik8 formulations.
8x more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate is direct acting without having to convert into retinoic acid like other forms of vitamin A.
It helps to stimulate cellular regeneration and support collagen synthesis, resulting in a visibly smoother, firmer and radiant eye area.
While incredibly powerful, retinyl retinoate has been proven to be extremely gentle on the skin, making it perfect for around the delicate eye area.
This form of vitamin A is also photostable, meaning it does not break down in sunlight and is suitable for use in the daytime as well as evening.
Humectants multi-weight hyaluronic acid and glycerin infuse hydration into the skin for visibly smoothed, plumped eye contours.
r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum is optimised for the eyes, featuring two additional eye actives, hesperidin and caffeine, which work to diffuse the appearance of dark circles, resulting in a visibly awakened eye area.
How to use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum around the eye area, carefully avoiding the eyelids.
You should always use a sunscreen in the morning while using vitamin A.
Patented, encapsulated retinyl retinoate, exclusive to Medik8.
8 times more powerful than retinol this non-irritating vitamin A helps to stimulate collagen synthesis and supports the regeneration of skin cells.
Also known as vitamin P, hesperidin is used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress melanin transport in the skin, leading to a reduction in the appearance of dark circles for more awake-looking eyes.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes, caffeine is known to be a vasoconstrictor which can help to diminish the appearance of dark circles whilst visibly firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid
With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the lower layers of the skin to provide intense hydration.
As a natural humectant, glycerin traps water within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.
