Description
Retinol has been shown in several clinical trials to combat common skin-ageing concerns such as facial wrinkles, lines, folds and a loss of firmness by stimulating collagen and hyaluronic acid production. Retinol has also been proven to improve skin clarity and texture, promote anti-pigmentation plus demonstrate anti-acne and pore-minimizing effects, all leading to a more youthful skin appearance.
Retinol 40 is a concentrated booster serum containing 4.0% encapsulated all-trans retinol in its purest and most active over-the counter form. Retinol 40 is designed to incorporate with your usual night hydrator.
Using the proprietory Medik8 'Retinol Ladder' system, it is possible to create an infinate number of concentrations of retinol from 0.1% upwards, with just one Retinol 40 bottle, leading to incredible economy and flexibility.

Medik8 only use all-trans-retinol, the most bio active form of cosmeceutical Retinol available. Retinol 40 Boost Concentrate combines 4.0% all trans retinol with vitamin E in a molecular film fluid base. Retinol 40 is designed to incorporate with your usual night hydrator. Using the proprietory Medik8 'Retinol Ladder' system, it is possible to create an infinate number of concentrations of retinol from 0.1% upwards, with just one Retinol 40 bottle, leading to incredible economy and flexibility. Simply refer to the dosage guide.
Medik8 Retinol products use a novel Time-Release system to reduce the level of stinging that is very commonly reported by users of standard retinol products. It works by releasing active molecules over time rather than in one big 'hit'. The skin receives the same dose of retinol per application but spread out over hours not minutes. While people with sensitive skin may still find Retinol produces some stinging at first, the degree of sensitisation is markedly reduced.
An unfortuante weakness with standard Retinol is its instability. Retinol easily oxidises, becoming inactive, when exposed to oxygen either in the air or in the water of cream products. Even though Medik8 and some other professional brands have revolutionised Retinol stability with film encapsulation techniques this technology is not foolproof. Therefore, Medik8 have added three further enhancements to all their Retinol products ensure the highest potency at the time of use. Firstly, Medik8 Retinol is only formulated into non-aqueous serums (ie. no creams which contain water and oil mixed). Secondly, Medik8 Retinol batches are stored under inert Nitrogen gas while awaiting filling. Lastly, Medik8 operate a strict 30 day small batch guarantee.
