What is Retinol?

Retinol is vitamin A that is converted into retinoic acid when absorbed by the skin. In vivo studies have proven that when retinol is topically applied it increases the biological elasticity of the skin and reduces the depth of wrinkles. It is also often used to help improve and prevent acne as it is believed to help reduce sebum production and help reduce blockages in the pores. 

Finally, retinol is effective in reducing hyperpigmentation by supporting the skin’s natural shedding process, removing pigmented dead skin cells from the surface.

What are its origins?

Retinol has become one of the most famous ingredients in modern skincare, an ingredient that has been used for thousands of years, notably in ancient Egypt, but that gained momentum in the 1960’s when dermatologists noticed remarkable benefits when applied topically. By the 1970’s retinol was fast-becoming the gold standard ingredient for anti-aging. Today it is still one of the most powerful and researched actives available.
