The power of pure retinol infused with gentle bakuchiol
An intensive skin revitalising solution, skinretin® 0.3% is a comprehensive anti-ageing night treatment that helps visibly improve the appearance of dark spots, lack of luminosity, wrinkles and expression lines, and loss of firmness and elasticity.
The properties of retinol have been known for more than 40 years, so why has it become a key anti-ageing trend in recent times? Arantza Azparren, International Training Manager at mesoestetic® explains.
“Retinol is a vitamin A derivative whose formula has been improved over the years. In the past, due to the instability of its formula, retinol could cause irritation and tolerance issues in certain skin types. Thanks to new and innovative formulations and production technologies, these problems of the past have been resolved and retinol has become one of the most popular anti-ageing active ingredients”.
Retinol penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, thanks to its light molecular weight, helping to visibly plump the complexion. It also offers the benefits of skin revitalisation resulting in visibly smoother and more luminous-looking skin while also reducing the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots. It also helps regulate sebum production in oily skin to help minimise the appearance of blemishes.
skinretin 0.3% enhances the effects of retinol with the combination of bakuchiol, a natural active plant ingredient that has become widely known as an alternative to retinol. Bakuchiol provides very similar benefits to retinol with the advantage of being ideal for sensitive skin that may be irritated or has a lower tolerance to retinoids.
The formula is further enhanced with other active ingredients, such as a post-biotic complex (which visibly revitalises, balances and protects the skin’s microbiota), centella asiatica (which has a restorative effect) and ectoine (which helps strengthen the skin barrier).
With this composition, skinretin® 0.3%, backed by clinical and in vitro studies, effectively helps combat the signs of ageing for all skin types.
