Shop Vitamin A/Retinol

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and an anti-aging champion with a reputation for effectiveness that has been well earned. It is an antioxidant that is readily absorbed when applied to the skin, but it is also so much more.

The benefits of Vitamin A/retinol for skin

Retinol’s anti-aging abilities stem from its ability to stimulate collagen production. The production of collagen is essential for combatting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.

As we age, cell turnover slows. Vitamin A causes the skin to increase the rate at which new skin cells are made so that old, dull skin is replaced at a quicker rate.

Cosmeceutical grade retinol/vitamin A can help:

  • exfoliate the dull skin
  • Smooth wrinkles and slows aging
  • fight acne
  • fade acne scar and even skin for a radiant glow

Vitamin A is added to many cosmetic products, including moisturisers, sunscreens, vitamin-infused oils, and anti-aging creams. It can also be found as a serum and as an oil, which gives you multiple options for achieving a glowing complexion free of skin concerns like acne and large pores.


Please note: for those who are creating their own professional grade skincare routine at home, it is best to avoid layering multiple forms of retinols. This is because while your skin may be able to handle a strong retinol/Vitamin A serum, if you're also using an AHA or retinol moisturiser you may run the risk of sensitising your skin.


Always pair retinol products with a highly effective sunscreen.

First retinol - love it

A great intro to the retinol game. I started off using once every three days over moisturiser, then under, then every two days. I think after four months my skin has gotten used to it and is less sensitive. Will finish off the bottle and then move onto a stronger percentage.

Gentle and effective

I was using Avene physiolift night creme prior to using this product. I use medik 8 B5 hydration drops before using this and it works really well. I have sensitive skin and I did not have any issues with rashes and inflammation even though I started using it daily pretty early on. Definitely noticed a difference in my skin and I will be moving on to retinal 6 next :)

Happy :)

I have just upgraded to this (after finishing a bottle of the Retinol 3TR) and I’m totally happy. No irritation at all. It takes no time to sink in. My skin is looking really good, smooth and glowy. I use the Advanced Night Restore cream after, which I love too.
