Retinoids for Anti-Aging and Skin Repair


Retinoids for Anti-Aging and Skin Repair

(Posted on 01/02/17)

Retinol is an effective substance for the care of anti-aging and UV damaged skin and can improve the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, pore size, irregular skin tone and lost elasticity. 

In 2016 the SCCS (scientific committee on consumer safety) estimated that exposure to Vitamin A (retinol, retinyl palmitate, and retinyl acetate) is safe in hand cream, face cream & rinse off at low level additions. Please refer to their published guidance from April 2016 for more information.
