Water and silicone free, The Ordinary’s Retinol (1%, 0.5%, 0.2%) in Squalane features highly stable Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearance of aging with impressive results.
A powerhouse form of vitamin A, Retinol encourages cell turnover, revealing healthier, softer skin while also tackling blemishes, dark spots and defying signs of aging – including softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and uneven tone.
Retinol can cause significant irritation, including redness and peeling, but many feel that its significant effects counterbalance this; The Ordinary recommends building your skin’s tolerance to Retinol with lower concentrations such as The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% to minimize discomfort. Then gradually increase in strength once your skin have adjusted to Retinol.
Retinol 0.2% in Squalane (Low Strength, Moderate Irritation)
Retinol 0.5% in Squalane (Moderate Strength, High Irritation)
Retinol 1% in Squalane (High Stregth, Very High Irritation)
