In skincare, retinol products are the closest thing to actual magic.
The powerful ingredient (also known as vitamin A) is used to treat a long list of common skincare issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne, dullness, and large pores.
Retinol can be extremely effective, but the ingredient is equal parts confusing because there's so many misconceptions about using it.
What is retinol?
Retinol is a form of vitamin A that prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps to lighten areas thanks to its cellular turnover properties.

Do NOT use these products when pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to conceive.
Vitamin A increases the skin's sensitivity to sunlight thus photosensitisation makes the skin more susceptible to sunburn. We recommend using these products as NIGHT treatments only.
