Retinol Skin Benefits:
Retinol is a fat-soluble derivative of Vitamin A that must be derived through diet. It is an ideal ingredient for potentially enabling the skin’s natural protecting abilities. When applied topically, retinol reacts with skin enzymes to form retinoic acid. Due to the milder nature of retinol, many cosmetic companies prefer to infuse over-the-counter products with retinol rather than retinoic acid. 1
Retinol’s ability to promote skin-rejuvenation is key to enhancing the skin’s overall appearance. By speeding up cell-turnover rate, retinol may help to visibly revitalize skin, as well as improve the appearance of facial lines and skin-discoloration. Furthermore, topical application of retinol skin products (i.e., retinol skin cream) can also exhibit potent antioxidant effects that help to neutralize free radicals that are present in the environment. Over-the-counter retinol products often contains concentrations of around 0.05%-1%, and can require 3-6 months of daily usage before results appear noticeable. 2
