Retinol Serum 30 ml.
The retinol serum should of course not be missing in our range. This beauty product has been known for years for its healing and rejuvenating effect. This retinol serum smoothes the skin's complexion, improves elasticity, fades wrinkles and fine lines. It also ensures a good moisture content of the skin. The serum contains the purest retinol, an ingredient that can repair skin damage from the sun and fade fine lines. In addition, retinol serum has an anti-aging (counteracts aging symptoms). The combination of the ingredients in this serum ensures that your skin produces more collagen, feels firmer and also feels hydrated.
All trans retinol are a precursor to retinoic acid. When this is applied to the skin, it penetrates through the skin and is gradually oxidized to retinoic acid. All the good properties of retinoic acid reach their destination only without the unpleasant side effect of retinoic acid such as skin irritations and rashes.
Biochemical results of this research
Compared to the everyday cream, retinol treatment significantly increased glycosaminoglycan and procollagen from early 24 weeks (end of study).
As human skin ages, wrinkles develop, thinner skin and the skin loosens. Of these problems, wrinkles are the best and easiest to treat. This study by Kafi et al; 2006 has shown that treatment with 0.4% retinol shows a significant improvement for naturally aging human skin. This improvement was supported by the significant increase of two molecules, namely glycosaminoglycan and procollagen,
The study showed that age-related fine wrinkles started to fade / diminish after treatment of 4 weeks and continuously improved until week 24. This is a faster response to wrinkle disappearance than with photoaging wrinkles. Photoaging wrinkles require 2 to 3 months to show significant improvement. The difference in time for results to appear between wrinkles from age and wrinkles from photoaging depends on the cause and severity of the wrinkles.
During the first month of treatment with retinol, the amount of glycosaminoglycan increases significantly in the epidermis of photoaged skin. As a hygroscopic material, glycosaminoglycan has the property of binding to water up to 1000 times its own weight. Smoothing of photo-aged skin with retinol treatment is expected to be mediated by increased glycosaminoglycan retaining water in the superficial part of the skin.
In our natural age study, glycosaminoglycan was measured before and after 6 months of retinol treatment. As a precursor to retinoic acid, retinol is expected to increase glycosaminoglycan just as retinoic acid would. The first signs of wrinkle reduction / fading with retinol treatment are likely due to the effect of glycosaminoglycan. In addition, there was also a significant increase in procollagen I. The lack of procollagen I immunostaining at the start of treatment shows that there is minimal synthesis of collagen in aging skin. This study shows that continuous use of retinol procollagen can stimulate synthesis in aging skin.
The main ingredients of this retinol serum
Retinol serum is very effective in repairing sun-damaged skin, and retinol is also a good treatment for anti-aging or skin aging. The molecular structure of retinol is naturally so small that it penetrates into the deeper layers of the epidermis (epidermis, outermost layer of skin) and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The skin cells that come into contact with retinol here will look younger and healthier. The higher production of collagen will make your skin feel firmer.
This ingredient is known for its moisturizing effect. The ingredient has the property to retain a lot of moisture (1000 x own weight).
Another ingredient in this wonderful serum is Vitamin E. This ingredient is often used against anti-aging (aging symptoms). It is therefore said that vitamin E can slow down this aging process. It also works to protect against free radicals, improves the complexion and fades fine lines and wrinkles.
It is recommended to apply the serum after cleansing the skin in the morning and / or evening. However, we advise for the best result of the retinol serum. First treat your skin with a dermaroller that has a maximum length v
