What is Retinol and Why is it the Star Ingredient in Pro-Aging Products?
Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and is one of the most extensively researched skincare ingredients. It is scientifically proven to target visible signs of aging, improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, even out pigmentation and overall skin tone & texture. Retinol boosts collagen production, speeds up cellular turnover and has exfoliating properties; it helps to shed dead skin cells and keep pores clean.
Traditional Retinol Vs. Plant-Based & Encapsulated Retinol
So many people are hesitant to use retinol due to its negative side effects which may involve skin irritation, redness, dryness & peeling. Conventional retinol can degrade easily when exposed to oxygen and sunlight and is usually derived from animal sources which can be a challenge for those who follow a plant-based lifestyle!
Plant-based retinol is generally well tolerated by all skin types, including sensitive skin. One of the benefits of opting in for plant-based retinol is being very gentle. It is a great alternative for sensitive skin concerns including eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis or retinol beginners. Bakuchiol for example is a botanical retinol alternative that “works through the same receptors that retinol uses, which is why many refer to it as a natural retinol alternative”.
