Vitamin A Features, Benefits and Why You Need it
"You've heard it one thousand times by now, Vitamin A is the yin to your yang, the chocolate to your peanut butter, the milk to your cookie, the pea to your pod, the wand to your wizard...
Vitamin A really is a must-have in your daily skincare regimen. Seriously.
We have done a little tweaking to our Vitamin A formulas to better provide your skin with incredible results
and keep the largest organ of your body happy, healthy, and youthful but, do you know why our Vitamin A Serums are the absolute bee's knees?
Retinaldehyde-liposome (say that 5 times fast)! Let's take a closer look at this patented Vitamin A delivery system.
In the body, we convert Beta Carotene into Retinol, Retinol into Retinaldehyde, and Retinaldehyde into Retinoic Acid, a very detailed process! All of these Vitamin A derivatives serve an important job to the skin but the strongest, most active form is Retinoic Acid. Retinoic Acid is the only ingredient that requires a prescription even though Retinaldehyde has a similar activity level. Both Retinaldehyde and Retinoic acid are 500 times more active than their Vitamin A counterparts! This means we can use smaller amounts in our formulas, but still see BIG results without irritating the skin!
The advantage of using Retinaldehyde, or Retinoic Acid, is that smaller amounts (with much higher activity levels) can be used very effectively when incorporated into a liposome. By doing this, we enhance its penetration (an important factor in the use of Retinols because of their size) and help prevent its oxidation which also occurs with all Retinols. What does this mean for your skin?
This means, your skin's absorption rate is increased by a clinically proven 600%! What?!? 600%... you heard right! Now with our adjusted levels of Vitamin A, coupled with our powerful liposome delivery, your skin will be the belle of any ball (or just the belle of your living room... bathroom... or bedroom, you choose)! Here is a break down of our new Vitamin A's:
Calm: Calm is our level 2 serum, now with a lower percentage of Retinaldehyde to better suit the ultra sensitive. You can still get the wonderful cell turnover benefits of Vitamin A without any irritation!
Correct: Now with a larger percentage of Retinaldehyde, Correct will do exactly what it is named to do, correct aging, uneven skin tone, and reverse environmental damage.
