What is Retinol Wrinkle Cream?

What is retinol

Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative

Our Retinol Wrinkle Cream fights aging and delivers results. So, what is retinol and how does it reduce wrinkles? As a derivative of vitamin A, Retinol is one of the best wrinkle cream ingredients on the market today. It was originally used to treat acne since it exfoliates skin and alleviates clogged pores. Now, Retinol’s effective wrinkle reducing capabilities have also been established and even scientifically documented, so it is an active ingredient in many finer skin care products. It’s Vitamin A in its purest and most potent form and one of the most important wrinkle cream nutrients for improving skin's appearance.

You can benefit from the highly effective anti-aging performance of Retinol by using a cream with potent levels of the ingredient, such as our ReNew Youth™ Retinol Wrinkle Cream. Retinol cream penetrates deeply into the skin, where it provides the greatest benefits in the critical battle against aging:

  • Wrinkles and lines gradually smooth
  • Elasticity and moisture increase
  • New collagen production is stimulated

Your complexion looks more radiant as damage to your skin is repaired with a properly formulated retinol wrinkle cream.

The Many Benefits of Retinol Anti Aging Cream

Retinol Anti Aging Cream can play an important part in a results-oriented antiaging skin care routine. The science of retinol is amazing. It belongs to a class of compounds known as retinoids, and its small structure can actually penetrate the upper layers of the skin and repair the lower layers where beneficial collagen and elastin reside. Retinol can be broken down into many smaller components, including retinoic acid.

Retinol must be converted to retinoic acid to have any direct effect on skin cells. This process takes place naturally on the skin’s surface; however, consumers need to distinguish between retinol, which can be purchased over the counter, and retinoic acid, which is available only by prescription.

While pure retinoic acid offers better anti-wrinkle benefits, it frequently causes excessive skin irritation and other undesirable side effects. This limits its use, especially in people with sensitive skin. In fact, according to research, topical retinoic acid is not suitable for use in older adults. However, properly formulated retinol cream products provide less expensive and less irritating retinol anti-aging cream alternatives.

Many products contain too little retinol to create visible effects. Watch out for anti aging creams that do not list retinol concentrations, since they might not contain enough for significant benefits. Look for skin care products with retinol concentrations of 1,000,000 International Units per ounce (about 1.0% retinol). Highly concentrated retinol may cause skin irritation, especially in people with sensitive skin. Buy retinol creams that minimize irritation with natural ingredients such as jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil, squalane, and hyaluronic acid. You’ll see these special skin hydrators in our retinol anti-aging cream ingredients.

Even well formulated retinol creams may irritate skin at the beginning of use, causing redness or mild rashes. Flaking may occur as old, damaged skin cells are sloughed off and replaced. This is normal, and most skin adjusts to treatment and soon reveals significant benefits. Retinol creme may make skin more sensitive to sunlight. To protect against sunburn you must use a good sunblock after using retinol. Retinols should never be used during pregnancy or while nursing because they can have potentially harmful effects.

Highly Concentrated Retinol Creams for Skin Renewal

Make an educated choice and purchase properly formulated Retinol Creams for skin renewal. Retinols increase the production of collagen, the skin’s supporting structure, while stimulating production of hyaluronic acid – an ingredient that keeps skin hydrated. Our list of anti-aging skin care ingredients includes additional information on hyaluronic acid.

Retinol is also an antioxidant that fights free radicals, which can cause skin damage. It helps the cells in our bodies communicate with each other and function properly. Younger skin cells have receptors that readily accept retinoic acid for normal cell function and renewal. In aging skin, this process is degraded, retinoic acid is not as readily recognized, and its effects are diminished. Cell turnover rates slow as skin ages.

A University of Michigan study demonstrated that regular application of high concentration retinol will reduce fine lines and wrinkles and other aging effects. The study included 36 patients over the age of eighty. The researchers applied a preparation containing retinol on one arm of each subject and a control cream without retinol on the other arm, up to 3 times a week for 24 weeks. At the end of the experiment, researchers observed that roughness, wrinkles and general skin aging were significantly reduced in the arms treated with retinol.

Retinol cream for skin renewal provides numerous well-documented benefits for aging skin, provided that sufficiently high concentrations are used in a formulation that minimizes irritation.
