What does it do?
A clinically proven anti-aging formula to encourage healthy collagen production and restore firmness to skin. Unlike, traditional retinol creams, this formulation is easy to use as it is less likely to create peeling and irritation. Retrinaldahyde is the direct precursor to retinoic acid (tretinoin) which is the only form of vitamin A that your skin can make use of. That means it is one conversion step closer to tretinoin than retinol, making it a stronger, more effective product. This cream also contains two patented ingredients RelastideTM, a pro-elastin peptide, and Pre-Tocopheryl, a photostable precursor to vitamin E, making it a great three in one age corrective product for folks that like to keep a simple skincare regimen.
