- Modern Miracle
This formula contains encapsulated retinol, which is highly prized for its ability to dramatically improve skin’s appearance. Each retinol molecule is wrapped in a protective layer of phospholipids that act as a delivery system to ensure maximum efficacy. The retinol then converts to retinoic acid, which is a metabolite of vitamin A, for beautifully renewed skin.
- Multi-Level Moisture
Glycerin, a hydrophilic ingredient that draws water to the skin, works synergistically with squalane, an emollient derived from olives, to provide all-day hydration. In addition, this formula includes two lightweight oils, jojoba seed oil and safflower seed oil. These ingredients work synergistically with ceramide-3 to provide multiple layers of moisture that stay locked in for long lasting hydration.
Encapsulated Retinol Cream
Containing the latest in stabilization and delivery technology, 0.5% retinol is encapsulated in a phospholipid layer for steady time release, and is emulsified in a velvety cream. Touted as a miracle ingredient in modern skincare, retinol is known for its ability to renew and refresh. Retinol is capable of acting intuitively to target individual imperfections. It can also improve the appearance of uneven tone and texture, and diminish the look of expression lines and wrinkles.
How it Works
Vitamin A is an oil-soluble vitamin that is not naturally produced by the body. It can be found in many plants and proteins, and is essential to maintaining a healthy immune system, vision, and organ function. There are many different molecular forms of vitamin A, 4 of which are mainly used in cosmeceuticals and are listed below by increasing degree of strength:
• Retinyl Esters (Retinyl Palmitate & Retinyl Acetate)
• Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin)
Each form of vitamin A undergoes a different process to fully convert the ingredient to retinoic acid. Once the ingredient has been fully converted to retinoic acid, it works with skin’s natural exfoliation process to ensure an ageless look and feel.
