RETINOL: WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT EXACTLY?
Extremely popular within the cosmetic industry since the 90s, retinol is nothing else than an active form of vitamin A. This substance, originally prescribed to acne prone skin, it has since then become fresh skin’s best ally. As a matter of fact, its numerous benefits have not escaped the experts’ attention:
- An unrelenting anti-aging: remarkable cell-renewer, it stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. These molecules provide the skin with elasticity and suppleness, making it look smoother and firmer and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Complexion beautifier: by regulating the synthesis of melanin, it helps get rid of dark and brown spots for unified complexion. In addition, its keratolytic and antioxidant double action supports the fight against external aggressions and unclogs the pores, therefore contributing to refine skin texture. Finally, it boosts skin radiance for a natural glowy effect.
A magical cosmetic ingredient as it seems…
Unfortunately, researchers have recently uncovered quite a few pernicious side effects: in order to deliver its power efficiently, retinol must be at a concentration of 0.3%; this dose may potentially be harmful and irritating to the skin, fostering local inflammations and enhancing sun light sensitivity. Most adverse effects for those who are looking for brighter, healthier skin.
Now, what if CODAGE told you that it was possible to benefit from the exceptional properties of retinol… without undergoing the side effects? This is the feat achieved by the Nutri-Element [Retinol +].
THE NUTRI-ELEMENT [RT+]: CHOOSING ONLY THE BENEFITS
To avoid retinol associated side effects, CODAGE chooses to integrate three specific ingredients to the [Rt+] Nutri-Element formula: a derivative of retinol (retinoids), a phyto-retinol (Bidens Pilosa Extract, with a natural retinol-like scientifically proven action), and Rosehip Oil, packed with antioxidant carotenoids. Their purpose: take advantage of the night’s potential of rejuvenation to intensely stimulate cell-renewal and provide the skin with an actual vitality treatment. Day after day, the skin wakes up deeply repaired, smoother and evermore radiant.
THE POWER OF THE NUTRI-ELEMENT [RT+] IN A CARE : THE NIGHT REJUVENATING SERUM N°08
Through these 3 overperforming ingredients, CODAGE offers you a powerful synergy. All that goodness is packed in Serum N°08, a multifunction care product to use at night to enhance the rejuvenating power of the night on the skin.
