Micro Retinol Soft Cream is an “ANTI-AGEING” (hate this word) product containing Retinol. Retinol is kind of the “GOLDEN STANDARD ” where PROVEN ACTIVE INGREDIENTS are concerned. It is the MOST ACTIVE cosmetic form of VITAMIN A. Dermatologists consider Retinol to be effctive in the treatment of WRINKLES and SUN DAMAGED skin.
Who can use this?
Klapp recommends this product for people over 30 and I agree with them. The amount of Retinol is probably quite low (less than 1%, it is quite far down the ingredients list), but this is ok. “Less is more” surely applies to Retinol. This makes the product “soft”, like the name implies, so people with SENSITIVE SKIN can use it too.
OTHER BENEFICIAL INGREDIENTS: Vitamin E, Vitamin A Palmitate (another form of Vit. A); both are ANTI-OXIDANTS, which mean they PROTECT our skin cells against external aggressions (sun, pollution, stress).
Apricot Kernel oil: a source of fatty acids and anti-oxidants. Fatty acids RESTORE the “hydro-lipidic mantle” of our skin. Meaning SKIN BALANCE.
TEXTURE: very light, moisturizing (you feel it instantly).
ALL skin types
USE: NIGHT cream, I would say, as Retinol breaks down with light.
STRONG POINTS: VERY nice product ! Absorbs instantly ; You see a FIRST RESULT OVERNIGHT.
WEAK POINTS: could’t think of anything.
Micro Retinol Soft Cream is available through Klapp depositories.
