The Inkey list
HELPS REDUCE FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
Your go-to ingredient for skin renewal.
Derived from Vitamin A, Retinol is the gold standard for skin renewal, helping to target the signs of ageing. Released slowly, this serum helps target the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with less risk of irritation. It also boosts overall skin clarity and uneven skin tone for a brighter, more even complexion.
1% RetiStar stabilised Retinol
0.5% Granactive Retinoid
Squalane for hydration and soothing
HOW TO USE:
Only use Retinol in the PM. On cleansed skin, and after Hyaluronic Acid if you are using it, apply a pea-sized amount and massage into to the face and neck. Follow with moisturizer, oil or both depending on preference. Start off using it 2-3 times per week and increase gradually if your skin can tolerate more frequent use. For more information on layering, watch the video in the layering section below.
A derivative of vitamin A, retinol helps to promote skin renewal and enhance collagen production to keep skin looking youthful, working at a cellular level to promote renewal and repair processes so that newer cells reach the surface quicker. As we age, the rate at which our skin renews itself slows down (sob) so retinol can be a great way of kick-starting cells back into action. Providing the highest quality ingredients formulated by a crack team of scientists and experts, THE INKEY LIST’s answer to retinol is sublime in its simplicity, uniting 1% stable Retistar retinol (the equivalent of 0.05% retinol) and 0.5% granactive retinoid (slightly stronger than retinol) with squalane for hydration and soothing. The slow-release formula minimises irritation while providing effective active delivery, working hard to minimise fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone tackle blemishes and improve skin clarity, leaving your complexion looking brighter, smoother and miles more youthful.

External use only. Avoid direct contact with the eye area. This product may increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Always use a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day. Keep out of reach of children. We do not recommend this product if pregnant or nursing, consult your doctor before use. We always recommend patch testing on the inside of the forearm 24 hours before using. Introduce new products slowly so that you can easily identify any sources of irritation.
It is not recommended to use Retinol and Alpha Hydroxy Acids at the same time as this can lead over exfoliation and sensitised skin so alternerate and use on different nights. Avoid mixing Vitamin C products at the same time (Use Vitamin C AM and Retinol PM)
