When it comes to anti-ageing, retinol often springs to mind as the go-to ingredient for age prevention.
However, its two-stage conversion process to retinoic acid, the only true form of vitamin A proven to be effective transdermally, can often leave the skin feeling dry, irritated and red.
Pioneering the industry with cosmeceutical-grade formulations, Evidence Skincare (ESK) offers an effective, tolerable and proven alternative with their hero night cream, Ultimate A.
Containing retinaldehyde (retinal), this ingredient is admired for its ability to stimulate cell turnover and increase collagen production for fewer lines and wrinkles, smoother skin texture, reduced acne and pustular rosacea.
Ideal for all skin types, including those sensitive to active ingredients, Ultimate A combines glycolic acid and niacinamide (vitamin B3) to improve skin exfoliation and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, and skin dullness.
Formulated for evening use, Ultimate A should be used in conjunction with an SPF during daylight hours to protect skin from UV-induced trauma. Visit the ESK Skincare website for more information.
