Highly concentrated 0.5% pure retinol

No purified water or retinol derivatives. Formulated using 0.5% stabilized, pure retinol for powerful anti-aging care. Best for skin accustomed to retinol but still experiencing progressive signs of aging such as loss of elasticity and dryness. For intermediate-level retinol users looking for a highly concentrated, youth booster.



START SMALL AND SLOW! Retinol is a high strength ingredient. Your skin needs to adapt to avoid any irritation and peeling.

Avoid using AHA/BHA/PHA and other strong exfoliants and Vita C & E products and always follow with sunscreen throughout the day.

At night - After cleanser and toner, pat a small amount using your ring finger. Apply evenly over the face, neck, and onto parts with wrinkle concerns.

Limit initial use to three times per week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, use as tolerated.

Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, flush with water.

We always recommend introducing one new product at a time into your skincare routine. Always do a patch test before applying to full face.
