How Does Retinol Work on the Skin?

Retinol has been a powerful ingredient in the skincare industry for a long time. There are many reasons why it’s so highly treasured, including how it works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves the texture of the skin. Imperfections and age spots slowly fade with the use of retinol in certain skincare products. Cosmedica Skincare is proud to offer a full line of natural skincare products that contain retinol, one of the most effective anti-aging skincare advances of all time.  

What is Retinol?

Retinol is a form of retinoid that comes from Vitamin A. It works well in our cruelty-free, vegan skincare products because the small molecules of retinol are able to penetrate deep below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Blood vessels are stimulated during the process of using a retinol facial serum, which can lead to improved skin texture by speeding cellular turnover. 

Retinol works on so many levels that you can easily see why it’s been one of the best ways to improve wrinkles for decades. Even the researchers at Harvard Medical School have studied and backed the effectiveness of retinol. 

How to Incorporate Retinol into Your Skincare Routine

Using natural skincare products from Cosmedica Skincare, you’ll find two main retinol-based products that you can purchase separately, or together in our 2.5% Retinol Facial System set.


Start with the 2.5 % Retinol Facial Serum, a combination of a high potency form of retinol, Vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid to deliver fast results for your skin. It stimulates collagen production to help banish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce imperfections in skin tone and texture, and hydrate your skin in the process. We’ve added Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid to the serum to bind the retinol and deliver moisture to your skin. 


Next, add our 2.5% Retinol Facial Night Cream to your skincare routine. Your skin is in a natural state of renewal at night, which is why it’s so important to treat your biggest anti-aging skincare concerns at this time. The night cream also contains Vitamin E and green tea extract, an antioxidant, to reduce inflammation and dry patches, while the retinol does its work on stimulating collagen production. You’ll wake up to better looking skin that is radiant and glowing.  


Apply Sunscreen After Using Retinol

When using retinol products, it’s critical to protect your new skin each day with a proper application of sunscreen. Try to wear at least a SPF 30 to shield your skin from sun damage. 

At Cosmedica Skincare, we’re committed to producing the highest quality vegan, cruelty-free skincare products to give your skin the best results.
