The Benefits

Retinol is one of the best-researched substances in dermatocosmetics, is called the “gold-standard in anti-aging” and is one of the few substances that contributes to a visible reduction in wrinkles when used over the long term. As an antioxidant, retinol also protects against oxidative stress and is used in the treatment of acne.

But: It can irritate the skin, so it is only permitted in concentrations of up to 0.03%.


The benefits of retinol in skin care:

  • Reduces wrinkles, pigmentation and loss of elasticity - the classic signs of sun-aged and mature skin
  • Promotes the shedding of dead skin cells and thus stimulates the formation of new skin cells
  • Firms the skin by restructuring the skin's own structural proteins such as elastin and collagen
  • Stimulates collagen formation. This reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and (acne) scars
  • Has an antioxidant effect and thus reduces the damaging influence of processes that attack the skin structure
