Retinol is THE star ingredient in the fight against the signs of aging skin. Of all signs, actually. It boosts collagen production and speeds cellular turnover, resulting in firmer, smoother, brighter more youthful-looking skin with smaller pores and more even pigmentation.
For us at Swissline, retinol is more about the slow release than the use of the highest concentration allowed. For this reason, we use micro sponges infused with retinol – and not the free forms of retinol – so to allow the natural water flow in-between epidermal cells to do the rest of the work . While moisture trespasses these sponges, fractions of retinol are released and activated little by little!
When it comes to retinol we are old-school and advocate its use only in the PM with the use of a high SPF during the day. Well… for that matter we advocate the use of SPF every day, even without the use of retinol.
