Retinol Benefits! Why you should add it to your skin routine!

Retinol is one of the best-known skin care ingredients on the market. Retinol is made from vitamin A and is primarily used to treat mature-looking skin concerns as well as acne.

Retinol is a type of retinoid, which is made from vitamin A. It does not remove dead skin cells, as many other products for mature skin do. Instead, the small molecules that make up retinol go deep beneath the epidermis (outer layer of skin) to your dermis.

Once in this middle layer of skin, retinol helps neutralize free radicals. This helps boost the production of elastin and collagen, which creates a “plumping” effect that can reduce the appearance of: fine line, wrinkles and enlarged pores. Retinol is a gold-standard ingredient in skin care because it alters the behaviour of aged cells so they act in a more youthful manner.

Retinol is primarily used to treat the following skin conditions:

Fine lines


Sun spots and other signs of sun damage, sometimes called photoaging

uneven skin texture

Melasma and other types of hyperpigmentation
