Retinol 1% 30ml
1% Retinol, an ingredient that’s been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and help repair photo damage and pigmentation caused by UV exposure. Retinol works by communicating with skin cells, increasing skin cell turnover and collagen production. It also has powerful anti-oxidant properties helping to counteract environmental damage.
Retinol can sometimes cause irritation and dryness when first used, before the skin builds up tolerance. To decrease the likelihood of irritation, you can dilute The Ordinary Retinol 1% by adding to a cream or serum that does not already contain Retinol or Retinoids. You could also begin by using the product every 2 or 3 days initially, gradually increasing frequency.
For this reason, we generally recommend using Advanced Retinoid 2% instead of this formulation If you are concerned about sensitivity
Note: This formulation can be diluted to reduce irritation potential while skin builds tolerance.
Warning: Products containing Retinol are not recommended for use during pregnancy or when breast-feeding.
Always use a daily SPF when using products containing Retinol.
Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Use sun protection in the AM.
