advanced microencapsulated retinol for maximum effects

At Dermalogica, we use advanced microencapsulation technology to help stabilize Retinol and ensure its maximum potency. This approach protects it from degrading as soon as it is exposed, enabling it to deliver superior results.

Microencapsulated Retinol also creates an invisible shield on the skin’s surface to help reduce moisture loss, which is critical in helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, and target uneven skin tone. You can find this technology in Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum, Age Reversal Eye Complex, Overnight Retinol Repair and Retinol Clearing Oil.

control irritation

Everyone’s skin reacts differently to Retinol. Some people experience temporary redness, flakiness, peeling and sensitivity because their skin lacks enough “retinoid receptors,” causing them to look for Retinol alternatives. Retinoid receptors are proteins naturally found in skin. They act like shuttles that carry and release retinoids (Vitamin A derivatives) into skin cells, triggering collagen production.

Fortunately, the skin can build retinoid receptors and respond to Retinol benefits with controlled exposure. With a combination of concentrated Squalane and soothing, oat-derived Beta-Glucan, Dynamic Skin Retinol Serum helps improve skin’s moisture barrier, restore skin, and improve resilience for healthier-looking skin.
