“Retinyl retinoate is one of the only forms of vitamin A which is active in sunlight; able to be used in both the morning and the evening. That means you can get vitamin A benefits at both ends of the day. Retinyl retinoate is particularly great for protecting our delicate collagen molecules from degrading in UV light. With enhanced levels of vitamin C in r-Retinoate Day & Night, we also protect the skin from harmful free radical damage.”
