Often referred to as the gold-standard ingredient in skincare, Retinol is sometimes misunderstood, yet always loved for its unrelenting results. Retinol is first and foremost a form of Vitamin A, which is widely known to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and speed up cell turn over, even out discoloration, and smooth skin texture. Dermatologists recommend Retinol products daily to patients of all skin types, 18 or older across the globe looking to improve the signs of fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation.
At Revision Skincare® - Retinol has Evolved.
Our master formulators at Revision Skincare have answered the questions: can you have it all? Can you reduce the associated drying and irritation while increasing the efficacy of the Retinol? The answer was: Bakuchiol and Microencapsulated Retinol.
If you’re an ingredient enthusiast, you may already know that Bakuchiol is a plant extract that, according to studies, boosts the efficacy of Retinol. Revision Skincare is the first to formulate a product with this revolutionary extract combined with a retinoid. Bakuchiol enhances the effects of Retinol and provides broad-spectrum antioxidant benefits in those products it is formulated with, like DEJ Night face cream™. It can also be referred to as a “super-antioxidant” due to its benefits.
We decided to formulate with a time-released Microencapsulated Retinol to provide maximized results. Microencapsulation of the Retinol facilitates controlled time-release to the skin. The time-release aspect also helps to maximize efficacy of Retinol while minimizing dryness and irritation.
Formulating Microencapsulated Retinol with Bakuchiol is one of the latest innovations from Revision Skincare, and aligns with our commitment to long-term skin health to achieve healthy, beautiful skin.
This year our Retinol Complete® won the 2018 Cosmopolitan Beauty Award for "Best Retinol". Lauren Balsamo, Senior Beauty Editor of Cosmopolitan said, "My pick helps eliminate [skin sensitivity] by combining a time-released Retinol with hydrating botanical extracts that boost your skin's ability to retain moisture. Genius!". Lauren said it best, view our other Retinol products below, with their full ingredient list that includes a more in-depth explanation of our hydrating botanical extracts and more.
