WHAT IS IT?

Retinol is a form of Vitamin A and is naturally found in the body. 
It’s role? Helping with bone growth and the synthesis of eye pigments. That’s in fact where it got its name: because it was discovered in the eye’s retina.   

Generally speaking, Vitamin A is found in foods such as leafy vegetables and orange fruits and vegetables (apricots, peaches, melons, carrots, pumpkins etc).
In its Retinol form we can find it in egg yolks and fatty fish.

THE SKIN SPECIALIST!

Retinol has a double action:
- it helps with skin renewal
- it increases the density of living skin

AND… EXFOLIANT!

- it makes skin soft and radiant 
- it corrects wrinkles

We all need retinol
A deficiency in retinol can cause hyperkeratinization resulting in dry and rough skin, which makes the skin look aged. Hair can also become dull, and keratosis pilaris can occur (chicken flesh).
