Medik8 Retinol 10TR is a powerful and rich, yet super-fast absorbing vitamin A balm that rejuvenates skin at its most optimal time, at night. Designed for maximum efficacy, Retinol 10TR is a high strength (1%) vitamin A balm, clinically proven to have anti-ageing benefits. Thanks to its time release delivery system, vitamin A is gradually released through the skin for an overnight rejuvenation. Retinol 10TR increases and maintains hydration levels, conditions the skin and improves texture and suppleness. To maintain its freshness, Retinol 10TR is only produced in small batches; it also contains vitamin E to prolong vitamin A activity and provide antioxidant protection. 1.0% strength is suitable for those who have already been using retinol as part of their regime and are looking for higher strength, if new to retinol we recommend using Retinol 3TR first, followed by Retinol 6TR.
Retinol application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then every day.
After cleansing in the evening, apply a small amount of Retinol 10 TR directly onto face. Leave to absorb before applying your regularMedik8 hydrator.
Retinol 10TR can be used as a stand alone product to target skin ageing concerns. However, for the best anti-ageing benefits, Medik8 recommends to combine the use of vitamin C (morning) and vitamin A (evening). These 2 molecules act synergistically to yield much faster results!
