How to use the retinol serum
Apply 3 to 4 drops of the retinol serum on clean, dry skin. Gently massage the product in your face and neck in circular motions. Then, follow up with your usual moisturiser.
As retinol is sensitive to light (hence the amber glass bottle), evening use is preferred, for greater effectiveness.
If the first applications of the retinol serum leave your skin irritated, space the applications a few days apart to get your skin used to it first (ex: applying it 1 of 3 days, then 1 in 2 days, then every day).

Collagen and elastin fibres form a three-dimensional network in the skin, ensuring the skin's suppleness and plumpness. Over the years, the production of collagen and elastin decreases, resulting in visible wrinkles and skin that scars more easily.
This serum is composed of 0.3% retinol to treat all different levels of skin ageing. Each application works to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibres to reduce the signs of ageing.
The 3 key active ingredients of the retinol serum
Retinol (aka vitamin A) is known as one of the most effective compounds to treat the signs of aging. Retinol is a part of the family of retinoids and is typically derived from beta-carotene.
Thanks to its high level of antioxidants, retinol is able to fight against free radicals. Free radicals are what cause premature photo-aging of the skin. They accumulate on the skin barrier due to factors like UV exposure and pollution.
Highly anti-inflammatory, retinol is able to treat the inflammatory component of skin aging. It also regulates the production of melanin, a skin pigment that causes brown spots and hyperpigmentation.
Retinol is also able to boost the production of hyaluronic acid and prevent the degradation of the skin’s production of healthy collagen and elastin: making the skin supple, plump, and firm at the same time.
Ideal for mature skin, soy oil is known to activate cell renewal. Our soy oil is extracted from fresh soybeans and is guaranteed GMO-free.
Non-irritating and non-comedogenic, our castor oil is derived from cold-pressing Ricinus communis seeds which have been used in cosmetics for over 4000 years. There are rumors of its use by Cleopatra as a make-up remover oil. It’s also known to be especially beneficial for mature skin.
