Retinol Night Complex
On Counters November 1st!
To understand Retinol, you first have to understand Retin-A. In 1967, Dr. Albert Kligman, a notable dermatologist and scholar, patented Retin-A as a highly effective prescription medication for acne. But, over the next decade, he noticed that patients using Retin-A not only had improved clarity in skin but also had significantly fewer lines, wrinkles and brown spots. The rest is history — Retin-A is one of the most studied and respected ingredients in skin care. Retin-A works by shrinking pore size and improving cell turnover so there’s less chance of clogged pores but it also helps reduce the loss of collagen, which happens with age and sun exposure. In fact, regular use of Retin-A increases the amount of collagen produced in skin, promoting younger-looking skin. Retinol is the non-prescription version of Retin-A and works by gradually converting into retinoic acid (which is the same acid in its sister prescription product) to promote healthier and younger-looking skin. And, the technology keeps getting better.
Retinol Night Complex features a groundbreaking, micro-encapsulated Retinol delivery system which releases-on-demand to skin with polymer technology. Applied at night, the microcapsules burst when applied onto skin to begin working while the body is naturally resting and rejuvenating cells. The capsules help deliver Retinol to the lower levels of the epidermis and help diminish some of the irritation that is common with retinoids. But the formula does not stop there; it also includes time-released antioxidants to help protect skin against environmental damage, natural emollients to help retain moisture and Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) to help with skin texture. The result takes weeks to fully realize but, in time, this anti-aging serum helps improve the appearance of wrinkles, overall skin condition, clarity, tone, and texture, revealing a smoother and a more youthful appearance.
