What is Retinol?

Retinol, is an age-defying ingredient, derived from Vitamin A, that keeps your skin looking youthful while you sleep.  It is regarded by many dermatologists as one of the most powerful, over-the-counter, age-defying skincare solutions available without need of a prescription.

The Retinol Overnight Serum is one of the first retinol serums to use biotechnology to encapsulate Retinol with a clean and vegan exclusive ingredient, the Evening Primrose Cell, ensuring that retinol is protected throughout the products’ lifetime and this also allows for the avoidance of toxic chemical encasement.

How does Retinol Work?

Retinol is a powerful ingredient that can help stimulate collagen synthesis, encourage rapid skin cell turnover, and increase the subcutaneous layer of the skin, where wrinkles originate.1

While aging is a natural part of life, we can help prevent the visible signs of aging by utilizing effective products early in life as a preventive measure.

The Retinol Overnight Serum can be added into your nightly routine as early as your mid-20s to help keep your skin radiant and smooth throughout your lifetime.  It helps prevent the visible signs of aging and fatigue, keeping your skin looking and acting youthful – all while you sleep!

How to Use Retinol Overnight Serum

When introducing Retinol Overnight Serum to your skincare routine, start slowly by applying once or twice a week during your nighttime routine. Allow your skin to adjust by gradually increasing frequency to every other night and then every night as tolerated.

Retinol Overnight Serum

Retinol and alpha and beta hydroxy (AHA & BHA) acid serums should be used on separate days of the week.  Diversifying your skincare routine with other powerful serums can give you amazing results.

And remember that Retinol and sunlight are not BFFs.  Using retinol can make you more sensitive to the sun’s UV rays, and likewise sunlight can cancel the age-defying benefits of retinol.  Thus, we recommend using SPF daily (Try our bestselling CC Cream, with SPF 30).
