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, the molecule helps to stimulate cellular regeneration and supports collagen synthesis. 8 times more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and smoothes skins texture for a more youthful-looking complexion.2Incredibly, retinyl retinoate has been proven to be photostable, meaning it doesn’t break down in sunlight like traditional forms of vitamin A and is gentle enough even for the most sensitive of skin.
