Why You Should Add Retinol to Your Regimen

Skincare’s gold standard can take your skin to the next level

Few ingredients cause as much of a stir as Retinol. This power-player ingredient is surrounded by a great deal of hype, mythology and confusion. When used incorrectly or formulated the wrong way, it can be a bit of a problem child, resulting in unwanted sensitivity or irritation. Our innovative work-around: NIA-114™, our patented, patented ingredient that keeps skin irritation at bay so everyone can enjoy the benefits of this effective ingredient.

First of all, it’s important to understand the difference between Retin-A and Retinol, both of which are derived from Vitamin-A.

Retin-A: A prescription-only formula that is 100x stronger than the average Retinol, which means it can have some pretty rough side effects, such as extreme sun sensitivity, peeling, itching, burning and extreme redness. 

Retinol: A specific form of Vitamin-A that occurs naturally in the body. Naturally gentler, this ingredient results in fewer uncomfortable side effects, but should still be used with SPF to avoid sun sensitivity. StriVectin’s Retinol-based eye cream, moisturizer, serum and day-and-night products utilize this transformative ingredient to meet your every need. Unlike many other Retinol-based moisturizers, StriVectin Advanced Retinol Day Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 includes sun protection to guard against future damage.

Biomimetic Retinol: Naturally-derived form that mimics skin’s natural processes to better receive the benefits of Retinol.

Still not convinced? StriVectin Retinol is results oriented and jam-packed with benefits:

  • Advanced Retinol Concentrated Serum - This serum might be lightweight, but it is seriously powerful — delivering our most potent level of Retinol to promote cell turnover and diminish the look of wrinkles. 
  • Advanced Retinol Multi-Correct Eye Cream - Completely transform the appearance of your eye area with an eye cream that harnesses the power of Retinol in a nourishing, gentle formula that targets deep-set wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. 
  • Advanced Retinol Day Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30  - Our Retinol-powered daytime moisturizer is formulated with SPF 30. This helps to promote visible skin renewal while homing in on major signs of aging as well as defending skin against new damage.
  • Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer - Get ready for the best beauty sleep of your life. This supercharged anti-aging cream with Retinol works overnight to take on visible signs of aging for a more refined, youthful-looking appearance.
