This Non-Irritating Retinol Deserves a Spot on Your Shelf

So, you hear that Retinol is one of the best anti-aging skincare ingredients to transform your skin – but every single time you attempt to incorporate it into your routine, you can’t seem to get past the dry & flakey side effects, the skin irritation, the redness, and the peeling. Do you continue to struggle, give up on Retinol altogether, or hold out for something better?

Meet Clean-ical Formulations Retinol + Hyaluronic Acid Renewing Serum – the Retinol that you’ve been looking for.

The Benefits of Retinol

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A known for its dual-action capability to increase skin cell renewal and utilize keratolytic action to shed dead skin cells in order to target the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. When it comes to gold standard ingredients that promise anti-aging benefits and flawless skin, Retinol will always come out on top.

The Problem with Retinol

Retinol can increase skin cell turnover by up to 6 times, which may cause the outermost layer of your skin to become more sensitive. Further, the efficacy of your Retinol may be easily compromised due to a high sensitivity to air, sunlight and acidic conditions that makes it less stable and potent, and therefore irritating and less effective – leading to dry patches, flakiness, and signs of redness.

Retinol Tolerance & Skin Cycling

Dermatologists and estheticians often recommend starting with a low concentration of Retinol and gradually increasing in concentration and/or application frequency as your skin builds up a higher Vitamin A tolerance. Meanwhile, TikTok influencers have taken a cautionary approach to Retinol with 4-day skin cycling – exfoliating one day, applying Retinol the next day, and allowing the skin to rest for two days.

The Future of Retinol
