Retinol 6TR + Intense™
Retinols are one of the most talked about anti-ageing and preventative ingredients in skincare today. Retinols, also known as vitamin A, boost collagen production in the skin and decongest pores by regulating sebum production. With time release technology, irritation from retinols is greatly reduced, whilst ensuring maximum results.
Containing 0.6% retinol and climbazole, this fast-absorbing serum is ideal for those that are looking for a higher strength retinol serum.
Suitable for all skin types
Benefits to you:
- Increased collagen production
- Time release technology for reduced irritation
- Ideal for those new to vitamin A
- Free from parabens, phthalates, artificial fragrance, alcohol & cruelty
- Retinol - a vitamin A derivative & an antioxidant. Fine lines & wrinkles are reduced due to collagen stimulation & cell turnover is promoted. Enlarged pores are minimised & skin texture & tone are both visibly improved. Retinol helps blemish prone skin by unclogging pores through sebum control. Using time release technology, retinol is continuously released throughout the night to reduce irritation to the skin.
- Vitamin E - an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radical damage, which leads to premature ageing.
- Climbazole - boosts the activity of retinol, minus the irritation, by blocking the enzyme which breaks down retinoic acid.
