About Retinaldehyde

Retinaldehyde (INCI: Retinal) is the most exciting and well researched ingredient in skincare. In the body, we convert Beta Carotene into Retinol, Retinol into Retinaldehyde and Retinaldehyde into Retinoic Acid. All of these Vitamin A derivatives have important and proven activity in the skin in an escalating level from Beta Carotene to Retinoic Acid respectively.

Retinaldehyde is substantially more active (500 times more!) than their Vitamin A counterparts which means that we can use
small amounts to achieve the desired results.
Retinaldehyde's known benefits are that it exfoliate and lighten the skin, reduces oil and bacteria, remodels the epidermis/dermis by actively stimulating collagen/elastin production and provides anti inflammatory and anti oxidant properties.
