Benefits: Improves skin texture and hydration, reverses the effects of sun damage, closes the pores, regulates oil production in the skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and promotes cell renewal. In addition to these benefits which we can also obtain from Retinol, bio-retinol has a soothing effect on the skin by effectively regulating its inflammatory properties, is more stable when in contact with light and oxygen and does not irritate the skin.

Is a natural oil extracted from the fruit of the shea tree, native to the driest regions of equatorial Central Africa. It contains linoleic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid which when applied topically helps to restore the skin’s barrier effect on the skin’s outermost layer. The acid works to: re-oil the skin, condition and soften the skin, calm possible irritations, and protect the skin from the effects of sun exposure such as dry skin.

Also known as tocopherol, is the most effective fat-soluble antioxidant. It slows down the ageing process of the skin cells and combats free radicals that damage the skin. Vitamin E also protects against environmental factors that can damage the skin such as pollution and the sun, as well as having a regenerative effect on the skin. It increases microcirculation (blood flow) in the skin, ensuring increased tissue nourishment, improving skin elasticity, and reducing wrinkles.
