What is Retinol?

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A and a powerful ingredient. It helps fight against signs of aging skin. It’s the #1 dermatologist-recommended skin-aging solution for its ability to improve the appearance of collagen-depleted skin, complement skin’s natural renewal process and fight the signs of aging.

Many of us say “retinol” as a blanket term but really the blanket term is “retinoid.” There are many different types of retinoid and Sorella Apothecary has choosen to use “retinaldehyde” because it is the strongest retinoid you can get without prescription  but with  way less irritation!

What are the benefits of using a retinoid? Retinoids work by encouraging cellular turnover, which in turn promotes the production of collagen and elastin. Increased collagen and elastin reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Other benefits include reduced inflammation and unclogging blocked pores making it great for acne prone skin as well as the healthy aging journey.
