Highly concentrated refining night treatment to diminish the appearance of age spots, uneven tone, fine lines, and wrinkles Retinol 0.5 contains 0.5% pure retinol and is enhanced with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to provide maximum efficacy.
Studies show retinol helps diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both environmental and intrinsic aging. Additionally, retinol help minimize the appearance of pore size, while reducing blemishes associated with problematic skin. Retinol 0.5 is ideal for continued use or for conditioning skin as a prerequisite to SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0.
Designed for maximum efficacy and stability, SkinCeuticals Retinol is formulated with high concentrations of pure retinol and enhanced with stabilization and delivery technologies to ensure effective penetration.
Unlike products that use traditional encapsulation technology, our innovative system captures and stabilizes retinol without enclosing it to protect potency.
Limit initial use to once or twice a week; gradually increase frequency to every other night, and finally each evening as tolerated. Apply a pea-sized amount of Retinol 0.5 to thoroughly cleansed skin in the evening. Carefully avoid the eyes and the corners of the eyes. To ensure optimal results, wait at least 30 minutes before applying any corrective or moisturizing products the same evening as applying SkinCeuticals Retinol products. Retinol is photosensitizing—broad-spectrum sun protection is a must when retinol is part of your skin care regimen. As a precaution, retinol products should not be used by pregnant women, or women who intend to become pregnant in the near future. Though there are no reports of topical retinol having any negative effect on fetal development, some problems have been reported with ingested retinoic acid.
