True Skincare – Advanced Retinal Serum (0.05%), 30ml

This anti-ageing powerhouse has been developed using clinically proven natural ingredients to help reduce the appearance, of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture. Naturally derived from the pink lakes, Retinal works 11 times faster than traditional, synthetic retinol by skipping the first phase of the conversion process, delivering clinically proven results quicker while still being as gentle on the skin and also helping to tackle acne and rosacea. Combined with clinically proven Butterfly Lavender Extract to help further these youth renewing credentials, and Algae Extract to help hydrate the skin, this waterless wonder provides quick and effective results without compromising on ethics, elegance or efficacy.

What’s the difference between RetinAl and RetinOl?

Good question! When applied to the skin, retinOl converts into retinAl, which then converts into RetinOID. By skipping this first conversion process, retinAl can work much faster at delivering those incredible results, without any additional adverse side effects. Furthermore, retinOl is synethic, whereas our retinAl is naturally derived from the pink lakes, providing clinically proven results. We didn’t want to offer just another “natural alternative to retinol” like Bakuchiol for example, as we wanted to give you real results backed by real data.
