|Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinoid Night Oil is a new generation ‘Retinol’ that delivers exceptional results without the usual irritation.
This night oil utilises unique booster technology to ensure the Retinoid and other actives in the formulation can penetrate and go to work while you’re sleeping. Your skin will be replenished, restored and regenerated and, in time, will look more youthful.
Why Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinoid Night Oil?
The Pestle & Mortar Superstar Retinoid Night Oil Night contains an advanced and stabilised Retinoid, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, that’s instantly recognised by the skin’s Retinoic Acid receptors. Unlike Retinol, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate doesn’t need to go through unpredictable conversion steps in the skin.
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate retains its full potency. The skin is able to identify and use it immediately, which means better results.
The Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate has been expertly formulated in a base oil blend of oils that are cold-pressed / organic and naturally contain vitamins A, E, C and B, as well as essential Omegas 3 and 6.
Your skin will be infused with the retinoid and the other naturally occurring skin nutrients and anti-ageing factors found in the oils.
What are Retinoids?
Retinoids are a form of Vitamin A used in skin care formulations that are powerful anti-agers. They accelerate skin renewal, improve texture and tone, stimulate collagen and thereby smooth those fine lines and wrinkles. They’ve also been found effective in improving certain skin conditions such as acne.
Retinoids come in prescription formulations and over-the-counter products. They include Tretinoin, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Retinal, Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate. You can read all about retinoids in our two-part article on our blog.
What’s Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate?
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is a new generation of retinoid that has been proven to be faster working and less irritating.
How’s Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate different?
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate has been shown to be more potent and less irritating than Retinol. It’s already broken down into a form the skin can readily recognise and use.
The oil base used allows this oil serum to absorb more deeply and act fast. This means you can achieve impressive results with a lower concentration, and that means less potential irritation.
This Retinol alternative is ideal for those who have dry or sensitive skin, or who like a retinoid in an oil formulation. Now you don’t have to give up on using a Retinol, even if your skin is pernickety.
The Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate has been combined with oils that are light and nourishing. These oils are cold-pressed and/or organic. They include Grape Seed, Jojoba, Avocado, Rosehip, Pomegranate, Black Currant, Black Cumin, Tamanu and Cranberry. These oils contain vitamins and Omega 3 and 6 that are beneficial to skin function and heath.
Now you can fight the signs of skin ageing with Pestle & Superstar Retinoid Night Oil on your side.
Suits all skin types, however anyone with rosacea should test first.
The best anti-ageing skin care routines include an antioxidant serum and sunscreen in the morning and a retinoid at night. Gentle exfoliation 1-2 times also helps the turnover of dead skin cells and keeps the skin looking bright, clear and soft.
