RetinAL Skin (RST)

Sizes: 1 fl oz / 30 mL

Stronger than retinol but much better tolerated.

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles by increasing collagen production
  • Improves skin tone and texture for smoother, firmer looking skin
  • Aids in fading sun spots and smoothing out rough patches on the skin
  • Increases cellular turnover, which can minimize breakouts
  • Stimulates production of new blood vessels on the skin, which improves the color of the skin
  • Added bakuchiol complements RetinAL Skin (RST) to reduce sensitivity, improve tolerability & allows it to work longer + more effectively on the skin

We chose RetinAL (retinaldehyde) because it is the strongest retinoid available without going into prescription-strength territory. RetinAL is estimated to be up to 20 times more effective than retinol and we are all about efficacy. 

Not only is it more potent and effective than retinol, but we’ve also enhanced the formulation with additional ingredients to make it even more effective and better tolerated with less irritation. More potent, more effective, better tolerated AND an added bonus is that RetinAL is gentle enough to be used around the eyes and on the neck + chest. What more can you ask for?!

*Not recommended if pregnant.
