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.

it’s nice but I don’t love it. It’s drying which I don’t mind as it’s a retinol but I feeling like it’s not strong enough for my skin. It’s a unusual texture ( roughish).
I feel there’s other retinols that are better value
