Hear from the experts

“As the Experts in Vitamin A, our Research and Development team took everything we know about retinyl retinoate and looked into the potential to pair it with revolutionary retinaldehyde. What followed was two additional years of research and development, on top of a previous eight with the original formulation r-Retinoate Day & Night, to combine two exceptionally powerful and stabilised molecules into a revolutionary all-in-one night cream. r-Retinoate Intense is the ultimate implementation of breakthrough molecule retinyl retinoate twinned with crystal-stabilised retinaldehyde.”
