Retinol is a synthetic derivative vitamin A, the group of fat-soluble vitamins common in carrots, eggs and sweet potatoes. Vitamin A helps to speed up healing, prevent breakouts as it supports the skin's immune system, and promote natural moisturizing. It has anti-aging properties that are attributed to its abilities to protect the skin from sun damage and pollutants as well as promote skin cell turnover. This means that vitamin A can help improve hyperpigmentation, age spots and sunspots, as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Disclaimer: Retinol should not be exposed to harsh lighting as a result of UV radiation and florescent lighting. Exposure to harsh lighting can result in skin irritation and blemishes. Apply retinol to the skin during night time only.
