Updated: Feb 15

What is Vitamin A and why should I put it on my skin?

Vitamin A more commonly known as Retinol is our skin” Superstar” at the moment. Retinol is the term used for the entire vitamin A molecule.

Applied to skin, retinol is a beneficial cell-communicating ingredient and an antioxidant, which means it can literally connect to almost any skin cell and tell it to behave like a healthy, younger skin cell and increases the amount of skin-support substances.

Retinol has been shown to increase the skins collagen production and glycosaminoglycan content, resulting in firmer skin with an improved texture and enhanced barrier function. Although it is not the only ingredient to look for in an anti-aging product, it deserves strong consideration by anyone who wants to keep their skin in top shape through the years.

Retinol is effective at managing acne and eczema, as well as improving discolorations and wrinkles from sun damage. All of these benefits are why retinol helps your skin look and act younger! In total, retinol can help more

than 100 skin issues. It is a true superstar for your skin.
