Why Retinol has taken the world by storm


But what makes our Retinol so special?

Hailed by many as being a cure-all for skin problems since its introduction in the 1970’s, retinol is a synthetic derivative of Vitamin A, now common in skin care products around the world. Although it’s by no means the answer to every skin condition, it does have a proven rejuvenation effect on fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun damage, pores, acne and general improvement to the skin’s texture.

While traditional exfoliators only work by scrubbing away the top layers of the skin, retinol works at a deeper level. It works by prompting skin surface cells to increase turn-over and die more quickly, in order to make way for new cell growth underneath, allowing new, fresh skin to come to the surface, making the skin feel overall smoother and fresher. This, combined with its ability to slow the breakdown of collagen, improves the skin’s elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In fact, it is commonly considered to be one of the most powerful ingredients for skin rejuvenation.

It also doubles as the perfect treatment for those with mild to moderate acne – especially for those who have tried and tested various over the counter treatments will little to no effect. For many sufferers, it has proved to be the answers to all their prayers, and when you consider that one in five adults suffer from acne, and 85% of people have suffered from acne at some point in their lives, it’s clear what an impact retinol based products have had on the business of acne treatment.

Retinol works as a keratolytic treatment that dissolves dead skin layers, clearing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and allowing other treatments to work more effectively in order to better prevent acne from forming in future. It also reduces oil production, acne-causing bacteria and inflammation, and has been proven to help to prevent the formation of acne scarring.

It’s no wonder so many people have found success from using retinol.

Why our Retinol Cream is different

Our Tebiskin® Reticap and Reticap EL creams incorporate pure, micro-encapsulated retinol in order to facilitate extended time release and deliver the retinol to work deep within the skin, providing deep, long-lasting action to counteract the signs of ageing such as wrinkles, dull complexion, and loss of firmness and elasticity.

The fact that the active ingredients are released in the skin, rather than on the skin, means that there is less surface activity, therefore, unlike some retinol creams in higher concentrations, Tebiskin® Reticap does not irritate the skin, and instead it spreads easily, is quickly absorbed and makes an excellent base for make-up.

Synergising with the pure, micro-encapsulated retinol is ethyl ascorbic acid, exerting a simultaneously beneficial anti-oxidant effect on the skin, while the acetylglucosamine enhances the retinol’s activity. The inclusion of hyaluronic acid then tones the skin, while urea delivers a smooth and silky finish.

Tebiskin® Reticap and Reticap EL should be used once a day, providing factor 15 protection from both UVA and UVB rays to counteract the damage done by solar radiation. The combination of its active ingredients delivers a decrease in the visibility of fine lines and even deep-set wrinkles, as well as a remarkable improvement in skin tone and brightness. In fact, the results of using either Tebiskin® Reticap or Tebiskin® Reticap EL are evident just minutes after application; almost instantly the skin appears smooth and silky, and wrinkle visibility is clearly decreased.

Tebiskin® Cytocueticals are an exclusive line of functional dermo-cosmetic products designed especially for select professionals in the medical aesthetic, surgical and dermatological sector, to allow them to provide appropriate, effective and safe advice to their patients. The products have been researched and developed with precision and accuracy to achieve an evident aesthetic benefit for many skin conditions, and are the preferred choice of the renowned dermatologist, Professor Tony Chu, president of the Acne and Rosacea Association UK.
