Extended Released Retinol Crème provides cell turn-over while building collagen and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. It contains a mixture of cylosphere TM Retinol, which is an enclosed retinol that is guarded from degradation, and fig extract which is an organic source of Vitamin A to help mend the dermis and improve hydration by 90% within an hour. Chamomile extract is added to soothe the skin because it prevents the redness and irritation that one gets with other retinol creams. The cream has a nice light aroma due to Calendula and lavender extract.
Cylosphere Retinol – This is a more advance form of retinol because it is non-cytotoxic, non-irritating and hypoallergic. It is slowly released into the skin and is accepted more readily by the skin than other retinol products.
Fig Extract –limits the loss of water from the skin and leaves the skin dewy.
Chamomile extract – This extract is antibacterial, soothes the skin, and has anti-inflammatory, wound-healing properties. It is especially beneficial to people with rosacea.
Why this is great for you:
As we age, our skin turnover lengthens from around 28 days to 50 days. Retinol helps our skin to turnover faster so we may have newer, radiant looking skin. Collagen production increases which then decreases fine lines and wrinkles. The upper dermis is thickened. This retinol product contains 5% retinol, so it is less irritating than other retinol products. Initially, you will still have peeling, but there will be less redness and irritation in the long run. Retinol also evens out your skin tone, helps with hyperpigmentation, can help prevent acne, and can calm rosacea.
Initially use only one to two nights per week; then gradually increase frequency to every other night, and finally to every night as tolerated. Apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin. Avoid applying near the eyes. To ensure optimal results, wait at least 30 minutes before applying any serums or moisturizing creams. The next day, you must apply a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen these times: in the morning, noon, and late afternoon.
