What is the difference between retinal and other retinol products?
Retinol and retinal (retinaldehyde) are both compounds derived from vitamin A — a fundamental nutrient for our skin's renewal process and the development of collagen. However, retinal is absorbed and used by the skin faster and more effectively than retinol.
Despite its higher potency, in vitro studies show retinal to be far less irritating to skin overall. This makes retinal it a great choice for those who experience sensitive skin, yet don't want to compromise on results.
I’ve used retinol in the past, and it irritated my skin (dry, red, flaky). How is this different?
You're not alone — we developed The A Retinal Serum with sensitive skin in mind.
Our encapsulated retinal has the unique ability to bypass the skin's delicate barrier when applied, delivering each molecule directly into the cell. Excess vitamin A is then stored by the skin and slowly released as needed to reduce the risk of skin irritation associated with traditional retinol.
To prevent transepidermal water loss that can lead to irritation, a complex of omega-rich phytonutrients help reinstate critical moisture while blocking inflammation signalling pathways in the skin. You can find more information on what to expect when starting your Strategy Skin journey here.
What if it doesn't work for me? Can I return this product?
We want you to be completely happy with your purchase of The A Retinal Serum from Strategy Skincare. We are here to assist and pleased to answer any questions you may have before or after purchase. You can find our full returns policy here.
Please note that all forms of vitamin A take time to provide maximum results. While we've developed a first-of-its-kind formula that provides an almost immediate glow, your best results will be seen from continued, consistent use. You can find more information on what to expect when beginning your Strategy Skin journey here.
I have acne prone skin, will I experience 'purging'?
For those who experience breakouts or rosacea, introducing The A Retinal Serum for the first time may cause a mild, yet necessary retinal clearing. Although Strategy Skin's formula reduces these effects compared to other retinols, this is a normal process that may or may not occur for some individuals when pre-existing blockages are simply leaving the skin before oil production is fully balanced.
'Clearing' typically appears around 2-3 weeks of usage. At this stage, we advise maintaining regular use for best results. You can find more information on what to expect when beginning your Strategy Skin Journey here.

The only serum you need!
This is the best product I’ve ever used on my face! I am a loyal customer for life.
I’ve been using this serum for about a month now and it will definitely become a long-term staple. I’ve already noticed an improvement in overall tone and texture, with no irritation or breakouts.
Have been using this for about 6 weeks and the results are very noticeable. My skin is much brighter and there is visible differences in fine lines and texture. I have no irritation like with all other retinols I have tried...
I only have to use a very small amount as it goes on smoothly. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to use retinol ....you will not be disappointed.
I have been using The A Retinal Serum for 6 weeks and it is extremely effective yet gentle and nourishing. It smells lovely and a little goes a long way. Within the first week I noticed a refinement in the tone and texture of my skin. I also noticed my skin appeared more moisturized, balanced and calm. After 3 weeks I noticed that my extremely stubborn melasma from having two children was starting to fade and break apart. After 6 weeks the melasma under my right eye is gone. I am absolutely blown away and amazed. It is so fabulous that I can address some of my more serious skin issues while breastfeeding, especially before summer. I highly recommend A++!
