We are often asked: what is the difference between Retinol and Vitamin A?
The answer - Not much really...
Retinol comes from a group of ingredients called Retinoids, which form part of the Vitamin A family. For Retinol to be absorbed into the skin, it needs to be broken down into Retinoic acid. This conversion process is helped along by a naturally occurring protein in our body called enzymes.
Once converted to this amazing ingredient, the retinol can finally begin to do it’s job, and what an amazing job it has:
- Retinol stimulates collagen production
- Speeds up cell renewal
- Improves skin texture
- Targets fine lines and wrinkles
- Evens skin tone
- Targets acne and post-breakout pigmentation
Finally Retinol, as part of the Vitamin A family, is a must have ingredient for anyone looking for that glow!
