Retinal Night Cream
A multi-tasking and deeply regenerating retinal treatment cream that accelerates cell renewal and skin’s recovery process while you sleep.
Formulated with anti-wrinkle marine glycobiology, collagen stimulators, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid, African Botanics’ Retinal Night Cream targets fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, hyperpigmentation and uneven texture for healthy, smooth and visibly youthful skin. The use of Retinaldehyde—an encapsulated and ultra stabilized bio-active form of Vitamin A that gradually and effectively converts to Retinoic Acid in one step— is proven to boost collagen production, promote healthy cell turnover, fight acne, increase elasticity and reverse the signs of photo-aging. Retinaldehyde is also the least irritating form of Retinol, so it is perfect for those new to vitamin A or who have struggled with irritation in the past.
White Willow Bark, Lactic Acid, Azelaic Acid & Fulvic Acid help minimize pores, and reduce acne scarring, sun spots, & pigmentation while Zinc Gluconate promotes skin healing, reduces hormonal effects, and helps fight against acne. Not only that, this beautiful night cream boasts a soothing cocktail of Marula oil, Laminaria Algae extract, CoQ10, Reservatrol, Vitamin E, Marshmallow, Hibiscus, Grape Seed, Chamomile, and Swiss Apple Stem Cells to calm the skin and provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits.
*Key active benefits: Powered by Retinaldehyde - an encapsulated and ultra stabilized bio-active form of Vitamin A that gradually and effectively converts to Retinoic Acid in one step, thus bypassing irritation. Retinaldehyde is far less irritating compared to other Retinoids and has one less step involved in the conversion to Retinoic Acid. Retinaldehyde boosts and protects collagen, increases cell turnover and enhances barrier function.
