The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane 30ml
What it is
The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane is a high strength highly-stable, water-free solution of 1% Pure Retinol, a form of vitamin A which has been proven to soften fines lines, pigment problems and revitalise skin.
This water-free and silicone-free solution contains 1% pure Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearances of fine lines, of photo damage and of general skin ageing. While Retinol has been studied extensively, it is irritating to the skin and newer technologies exist that mimic the visible effects of Retinol without causing skin irritation.
Why you need it
Retinol is a powerhouse serum that encourages cell turnover, revealing healthy softer and smoother skin. Tackling blemishes and dark spots on the skin while slowing down the signs of ageing, such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Firming and plumping to the skin. Tackles uneven skin tone, enlarged looking pores and works to give you younger looking skin that glows.
How to Use
Apply a small amount of Retinol 1% in Sqaulane to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Use sun protection in the AM.
Caution: Retinol can cause significant irritation, redness and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment while skin builds tolerance. If you have not used high-strength retinol formulas in the past, Deciem strongly recommend that you start your retinol regimen with the Retinol 0.2% in Squalane and adjust to higher strengths of Retinol 0.5% in Squalane and Retinol 1% in Squalane as your skin builds tolerance. You will achieve the same end results without the unpleasant redness and peeling along the way.
Note: Water can affect the stability of retinol. Additionally, plant oils in retinol formulations can trigger lipid oxidation and can impair retinol integrity. This formula does not contain water, silicones, plant oils or alcohol.
