A real breakthrough in anti-aging skin improvement that goes beyond retinol.
HOW IT WORKS
The product of 8 years of work, revolutionary molecule retinyl retinoate, is a hybrid of traditional retinol and retinoic acid. The encapsulated form is exclusive to Medik8 formulations. The molecule acts directly on skin cells to stimulate cellular regeneration and enhance collagen synthesis.
8 times more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate visibly diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, evens out skin tone and smoothes rough skin for a younger looking complexion. (2) It has been proven to be photostable, meaning it will not break down in sunlight like traditional forms of vitamin A.
It can be used both during the day and at night and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin. Retinyl Retinoate combines with collagen boosting Vitamin C, skin conditioning Vitamin E and hydrating Hyaluronic Acid in a next-generation, anti-aging formula to revitalize the skin.
