This complex anti-aging serum with the patented Retinalhyde is made to help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and to promote an overall skin renewal, hydration and evenness of facial skin tone. Retinaldehyde, performs closest to Retinoic Acid in a cosmetic topical, providing optimal anti-aging properties, including the softening of fine lines, with little to no irritation as is found in most Vitamin A actives.
IconicA® [Retinal (Retinaldehyde)]
Retinol must first be converted into retinaldehyde by our skin and subsequently converted into retinoic acid before it is used to combat skin wrinkles and uneven skin tones. When we use retinaldehyde in cosmetic products we avoid this conversion and the skin irritation that accompanies the chemical reaction.
Like any retinoid, retinaldehyde delivers a long list of benefits for both anti-aging and acne prone skin:
- Speeds cell turnover:
Our skin cells naturally turn over every 30 days on average, though this process takes longer as we age. By causing the skin cells on the outermost layer of skin to turnover faster, new cells can emerge, resulting in smoother, more even skin.
- Stimulates collagen production:
Will work the surface of the skin to speed up cell turnover and also work on the deeper layer of the skin to boost collagen synthesis for anti-aging benefits like increased elasticity and repair connective tissue in the skin.
- Keeps pores clear:
Helps unclog pores to keep them clear and therefore beneficial in acne treatments.
- Balances oil production:
Helps shrink the pores to prevent them from getting clogged and inflamed.
- Brightens skin tone:
The brightening effect is thanks to the speeding of cell turnover, which reveals fresh, brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
- Thickens the inner layer of skin:
Contrary to popular misconception, retinoids tend to make skin thicker.
