The first thing that I ran into, during my researches, was the fact that retinol should never be used during the day, although many companies try to ignore it! But, what’s retinol? Retinol is a bit weaker version of tretinoin (a powerful and highly potent derivative of Vitamin A, especially when it comes in reversing sun damage and premature signs of aging- it cuts to very low minimum the deep wrinkles, corrects fine lines, tightens pores, improves the whole skin complexion, stimulates blood flowing through skin cells and increases collagen production). But, if it’s true, why we use retinol? Because, tretinoin is so powerful and potent (causes irritations and severe drying), that only a few people can tolerate it. And, retinol is much milder (although isn’t effective as tretinoin), the most people can tolerate it very well. Retinol pretty much does the same job as tretinoin, encourages skin cell turnover (and this new skin is so delicate and gentle, that shouldn’t be directly exposed to strong sunlight (that’s the main reason why retinol should be present as an ingredient, only in the products, which are intended for night use). For that reason also, should retinol-containing products have to come, always, in tubes (or pumps) with tight-fitting caps, which will prevent the leaking of the product. Once opened, these beauty products should be used in a very short period of time (about a couple of months no further than that time). Its wide range covers also a skin problematic complexion, since retinol can be of a really great help with acne problems. Although, these products are very famous worldwide by smoothing and refining properties, jet it is of a truly great importance to learn to use retinol correctly.
Also and Oriflame keeps up with the very large and fierce competition, on the global market, when it comes to producing the beauty products which essential ingredient is retinol.
