Encapsulated Retinol: Your New BFF in Anti-Aging Skincare
In the world of skincare, choosing the right ingredients is key to getting the results you desire. Each ingredient has a realm of possibilities, though few have ever been as highly revered as retinol. Like a magic eraser, it polishes away the hands of time to repair skin imperfections and prevents them from coming back.
Retinol isn’t for everyone though, sad to say. It can irritate skin that normally isn’t all that sensitive. However, when a formula contains encapsulated retinol, it’s a game changer.
Behold, the Powers of Retinol
Retinol contains vitamin A, an essential component for skin health (not to mention eye health, reproductive health, and better immunity). When used in your skincare routine, retinol has some very distinctive benefits that include:
- Clears skin of blemishes
- Repairs at the cellular level
- Erases imperfections
- Stimulates cell regeneration
- Builds collagen for firmer, more youthful skin
The only downside of retinol is that it is a chemical exfoliant which is why some people find it too irritating on their skin. Even for those that can tolerate it well, it’s important to always remember your sunscreen regularly to protect this newly-buffed skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
However, in encapsulated form, retinol is easier to tolerate. You’ll still need to protect your skin from the dangers of the sun, as with anything, but you’ll get the benefits of retinol in a far more constructive way.
Why Choose Encapsulated Retinol Serum
For my line of Clean Beauty by AnaK, I’ve created an Encapsulated Retinol Serum that can even be used by sensitive skin types. By using a soft vectored encapsulated retinol molecule, it is protected from degradation. In this form, it can also penetrate the epidermis so it can gradually release retinol. In other words, it slowly gets your skin comfortable by giving it little micro-doses of retinol over time, easing it along.
Additionally, Encapsulated Retinol Serum contains other helpful ingredients. Cariciline® SB is a natural source of vitamin A that will boost your hydration by as much as 90% an hour after you apply it while organic helichrysum extract hunts for free radicals, plus offers natural antimicrobial and purifying advantages. Another natural ingredient, bisabolol, is ideal for speeding up healing and allowing better penetration of the encapsulated retinol to get to skin where it needs it most.
Smooth just a little of this thick and creamy serum on at night to let it work on restoring your skin as you sleep. With a light citrus aroma, it adds an invigorating step into your nightly skincare routine, one that gives you the benefits of retinol without the usual side effects.
