How It WorksRetinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that signals skin cells to produce proteins such as collagen. This increase in retinoic acid both boosts and preserves collagen levels within the skin for a plump, youthful-looking complexion. Vitamin A can also boost the regenerative cycle of skin cells and hinder the formation of excess melanin to leave skin looking smooth and even-toned. Retinol 6TR+ Intense is boosted with climbazole; an exceptional ingredient that enhances the power of retinol by blocking the enzyme that breaks down retinoic acid in the skin. Retinoids are often notorious for being drying and irritating to skin, however Medik8’s Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula evenly and slowly throughout the night. This reduces any potential for irritation or redness. The intense serum also uses a high percentage of squalane; an exceptional moisturiser carefully selected to help counteract any dryness caused by retinol.
0.6% Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to boost collagen levels and to enhance the skin’s natural regenerative cycle; leaving skin even-toned and youthful-looking.
Climbazole – Climbazole has been found to boost the activity of retinoids in the skin to give the power of higher percentages without the irritation.
Squalane – A natural emollient, squalane helps to restore the skin’s natural defence barrier while deeply hydrating the skin.
Vitamin E – An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin whilst stabilising retinol for optimal power.
