Retinol (vitamin A), Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil
How It Works
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.
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.
Vitamin A is used in combination with vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect delicate skin from external free radical damage, while stabilising vitamin A for a highly potent, long-lasting formula. In a jojoba-oil base, the nourishing serum protects the delicate retinol molecule for long-term efficacy.
