Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly softened, pigmentation noticeably reduced and the appearance of overall skin texture is refined. Skin looks clearer, brighter and revitalised.
HOW IT WORKSThe product of 8 years of work, revolutionary molecule retinyl retinoate is a hybrid of traditional retinol and clinical strength retinoic acid. Its encapsulated form is exclusive to Medik8 formulations. Able to act directly on the skin without breaking down into parts, the molecule helps to stimulate cellular regeneration and support collagen synthesis. 8 times more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and smoothes rough skin for a more youthful-looking complexion.2 Incredibly, retinyl retinoate has been proven to be photostable, meaning it doesn’t break down in sunlight like traditional forms of vitamin A. It can be used both day and night and is gentle enough even for the most sensitive of skin. Retinyl retinoate is combined with collagen-supporting vitamin C, skin soothing vitamin E and hydrating hyaluronic acid in a next generation, anti-ageing formula to revitalise the skin.
