What makes the Medik8 Crystal Retinal so unique and powerful?
From the experts in Vitamin A, Medik8 have developed Retinal, which acts faster than classic forms of Retinol. Retinal is the closest Vitamin A molecule to Retinoic Acid. Unlike retinol, which must first be converted to retinaldehyde and then to Retinoic Acid (vitamin A’s active form) within the skin, Crystal Retinal requires just one conversion to Retinoic Acid. This formula has placed the Retinal in a Crystal Encapsulation System that works to slowly release the retinaldehyde into the skin, reducing possible irritation.
After cleansing in the evening, massage a small amount of Crystal Retinal across the face, neck and and décolletage. Allow to absorb before applying your moisturiser. Crystal Retinal application should be phased in gradually, and only use in the evening. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night. Always wear sunscreen the following morning while using this product, and for 1 week after. Consult a doctor if breastfeeding or pregnant.
