Features & Benefits

Features & Benefits

Retinol 0.5 has one of the highest concentrations of pure retinol available in skincare products and is enhanced with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies. An innovative system captures and stabilizes retinol without enclosing it to help ensure the full dosage is slowly and evenly released.

A unique delivery system based on the skin’s natural lipid structure helps carry high concentrations of retinol to the target site in the skin. Major benefits include:

  1. Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Reduces visible age spots
  3. Minimizes pore size, to refine skin texture
  4. Corrects blemishes associated with problematic skin
  5. Compresses the stratum corneum
  6. Thickens the dermis (through collagen synthesis)
