Medik8 Intelligent Retinol 3TR™ Intense
Medik8’s Retinol serums work while you sleep to speed up the natural exfoliation process. The fragrance-free serum sinks into skin quickly, leaving a soft and hydrated complexion, without clogging pores.
Using vitamin E for enhanced stability and Time Release Technology to prevent irritation, this cutting-edge formulation provides noticeable results whilst still being gentle on skin. The most important step in your night-time anti-ageing routine, out Intelligent Retinol™ reveals a more youthful and radiant looking complexion.
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, is often referred to as the gold standard in anti-ageing skincare. When applied to the skin, it is converted to retinoic acid, the molecule that signals skin cells to produce proteins such as collagen. This increase in retinoic acid both boosts and preserves collagen levels within the skin for a plump, youthful complexion. Vitamin A can also boost the regenerative cycle of skin cells and hinder the formation of excess melanin to leave skin looking smooth and even-toned. Time Release Technology distributes the intelligent formula continuously throughout the night, slowing down vitamin A absorption for reduced irritation. Vitamin A is used in combination with vitamin E, an oil-soluble antioxidant that helps to protect delicate skin from external free radical damage, while stabilising vitamin A for a highly potent, long-lasting formula.
Retinol – Pure vitamin A helps to boost collagen levels and enhance the skin’s natural regenerative cycle, leaving skin looking even-toned and youthful.
Vitamin E – An oil-soluble antioxidant, vitamin E can quench free radicals on the skin while stabilising retinol for optimal power.
Climbazole – Climbazole has been found to boost the activity of retinoids in the skin to give the power of higher percentages without the irritation.
Squalane – A natural emollient; squalane helps to restore the skin’s natural defence barrier while deeply hydrating the skin.
