NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SkinCeuticals, a leader in advanced skincare technology, announces the launch of Retinol 0.3. This new concentrated facial cream with pure retinol improves the appearance of visible signs of aging and skin discoloration while minimizing breakouts and refining pores.
According to Dr. Karan Sra, while retinol is one of the most widely researched and proven skincare ingredients available today, consumers regularly experience irritable side effects while building up tolerance to topical retinol products. Due to its exfoliating mechanisms, vitamin A may increase skin sensitivity, redness, dryness and uncomfortable tightness. By launching a lower strength pure retinol cream with the latest stabilization and delivery technologies to ensure a steady, even release, SkinCeuticals introduces a potent nighttime treatment with minimum side-effects.
"SkinCeuticals is a leader in retinol technology, which is why I am thrilled about the addition of Retinol 0.3 to their portfolio," says Dr. Sra. "At a 0.3% retinol concentration, my reactive skin patients can finally reap the benefits of pure retinol, while keeping irritation to a minimum. It is also a great introductory product, so patients who haven't used a retinol can ease their way into higher strengths."
To further minimize irritation, the cream is formulated with a calming blend of bisabolol and boswellia serrata extract and is specially packaged to preserve its potency. SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3 is ideal for skin new to retinol use – helping to promote cellular turnover while providing soothing benefits to comfort the skin.
"Through our widespread network of physician partners, we have seen market demand for a product that offers all the great benefits of retinol but doesn't yield the infamous irritable side effects," said Christina Fair, General Manager of SkinCeuticals. "This product allows us to get back to our SkinCeuticals heritage founded on Dr. Sheldon Pinnell's philosophy of three main pillars: prevent future signs of aging with antioxidants, protect healthy skin with sunscreens, and correct visible concerns with retinol and other advanced corrective products. He believed daily exfoliation was an essential corrective step for healthy skin. Retinol 0.3 is a great product to help establish consistent skin tolerance before advancing to one of our higher concentrations."
Retinol can be used in conjunction with in-office chemical peels in order to further target signs of aging and skin discoloration. As part of an at-home regimen, Retinol 0.3 should be paired with a high-protection, broad spectrum sunscreen, as well as a vitamin C serum and an anti-aging lipid-restoring cream.
