Retinol is a skin-tolerable form of Vitamin A, part of a group called retinoids.

It is a great ingredient that has many benefits: it exfoliates skin on a cellular level, boosts cell turnover, moderates the appearance of skin discolouration, lightens suns spots and slows down hyper pigmentation, helping to restore a vibrant glow, and a revitalized, more unified looking skin.

It is known to help regulate skin’s sebum (oil) production, keeping pores from clogging, and holding back pimples and blackheads to form. It also has great hydration, and collagen/ elastin boosting properties, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles to visibly soothe out.

There are many forms of retinoids, some are stronger, some milder.

A few forms of retinoids are naturally occurring, while others are formulated in skin care products. Stronger forms of retinoids are only available via a doctor’s prescription.

Some sensitive skin types can not tolerate retinol and some forms of retinoids are not recommended to pregnant or breastfeeding women.

 Retinol can be highly beneficial but it is important to always start with a mildest form of it, and build it up gradually in your skin care routine. Dermatologists also recommend applying a higher SPF sunscreen when outdoors, as retinol can make our skin more sensitive to the sun.
