Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10 ingredients
Retinal is also known as Retinaldehyde and is proven to work up to 11 faster than its cousin Retinol.
Unlike other forms of vitamin A, Retinal has direct antibacterial properties. It’s able to target acne-causing bacteria, promoting a visibly healthy and clear complexion.
This serum is formulated with 0.1% encapsulated Retinal, one of the highest levels found in cosmetic skin care products.
Encapsulation allows the Retinal penetrate more deeply in the skin and to reduce irritation. This not only means better results, but also less dryness, irritation and flaking.
Hyaluronic Acid has a unique ability to attract and hold moisture so that the skin is visibly plumped and smooth.
Vitamin E is an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps prevent free radicals causing premature skin ageing. It also stabilises the Retinaldehyde to ensure it maintains maximum effectiveness.
Vitamin C in the form of Ethyl Ascorbic Acid and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate provide potent antioxidant protection and brighten the skin by reducing melanin production. They also may stimulate the synthesis of collagen so that skin feels firmer.
Botanical extracts and Glycerin, Squalane and Moringa Seed Oil have been added to hydrate, soothe and replenish the skin.
This serum will supercharge your skin care routine and get the results you’re looking for.
