Encapsulated retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging and helps reduce wrinkles and brighten the skin over time. Retinol is known to deliver essential hydration and promote a softer, smoother, brighter complexion. Encapsulation helps to improve not only delivery of the retinol, but its stability as well.

Why we use encapsulated retinol vs retinol
Encapsulated retinol is more ideal in a formula than retinol. Encapsulated retinol boasts the same skin-improving qualities, but in a more effective way. Encapsulating retinol means that it has been housed in a carrier system designed to:
- Protect its integrity
- Improve stability
- Penetrate into the skin effectively
- Enhance delivery to the skin
- Remains stable and potent for longer
When retinol is not protected by encapsulation, it can easily loose its effectiveness due to exposure to air and light. The liposome (encapsulation) becomes a delivery system that helps to deliver the retinol effectively to the lower levels of the skin helping it to target the right area and achieving the results you are looking for.
Please note that our formula uses retinol and NOT retinyl palmitate known to have potential side effects.
