Overview

A multi-corrective, next-generation vitamin A serum that reduces the appearance of uneven texture, expression lines and wrinkles faster than traditional retinol.

Formulated with powerful, signaling peptides, The A Retinal Serum targets aging at every level of the skin while potent antioxidants and barrier repairing factors down-regulate skin inflammation for an overall brighter, clear and calmed complexion.

 


For the effective treatment of:

— Fine lines
— Wrinkles
— Uneven texture
— Enlarged pores
— Uneven skin tone
— Mild to moderate breakouts

+ Non-Irritating

+ Clinically Tested

+ Allergy Tested


Renowned as the only FDA-approved ingredient for anti-ageing, vitamin A assists in cell organization and collagen synthesis to refine skin texture, balance oil production, brighten and reinstate lost collagen volume.

Better tolerated by all skin types, The A Retinal Serum uses a stable, next-generation form of vitamin A known as retinal (retinaldehyde). Rapidly delivered deep into the living layers of the skin, it signals cellular renewal faster than traditional retinol. Excess molecules are then stored within the skin for when it’s needed, ensuring less irritation and disruption of the skin’s delicate moisture barrier and microbiome.

Formulated with active signalling peptides to target deep wrinkles, and powerful plant-derived antioxidants to soothe, hydrate and protect, The A Retinal Serum is your complete youth strategy in one bottle.

FAQs

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.

What if it doesn't work for me? Can I return this product?

We want you to be completely happy with your purchase, therefore, our return policy allows for a full cellular cycle to take place (28 days) from when you receive your order.

With this in mind, it's important to understand 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.

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. This is a normal process that may 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, however, retinal is known to minimize this clearing process. At this stage, we advise maintaining regular use for best results.

My skin has never looked so good without makeup!

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.

Simply The Best

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.

Effective and Gentle

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++!

The BEST retinal!

I have very sensitive skin and have always had problems using retinals. This one is so gentle and soothing and the results are great! I've seen a noticeable change in the texture of my skin and size of my pores. Definitely would purchase again!

Love it!

I have been using it for a few weeks now and my skin is responding nicely. Fine lines seem less noticeable and dark spots are fading. Overall my skin feels a little tighter. I am very happy so far.
