3 amazing ingredients to revolutionise your skin.
Lets start with a bit of chemistry to understand how this ingredient works. You should be familiar with Retinol and may be familiar with Retinoic Acid. Retinol is allowed in cosmetics and Retinoic Acid is only allowed in prescription medication. In skincare products, either a retinol or an ester coming from retinol have been used, the disadvantages to this, along with low concentrations, are that they are fairly unstable and known to cause irritation. With the advancements in technology we are now able to get an ester not from retinol, but straight from retinoic acid. The biggest advantages to this new advancement are that, retinoic ester is stable, has a low irritation index, with even better results for the skin.
Juliette Armand uses this all new technology, in a next generation anti-ageing active for cosmetics called, Retinoid HPR – this active is high performing, anti-aging, non-irritating offers improved skin clarity as well as a brighter, more youthful appearance
Some major advantages to using Retinoid HPR:
- Can be used during the day, as it does not cause Photo-toxicity: which is a chemically induced skin irritation requiring light that doesn’t involve the immune system. It resembles an exaggerated sunburn
- 10x’s more stable against oxidation than other retinols, which means its power wont wane over time
- Directing skin active in skin receptors - most non-prescription retinoids have to be transformed into active forms to trip skin’s receptors and initiate a response like cell proliferation
- Test subjects saw a 50% improvement in skin roughness and a 40% improvement in skin surface scaling as well as a 50% improvement of pigment in 4 weeks (Contributes to skin lightening and brightening)
Lets start by taking a look at the all-new product first, Retinoid Serum 3%. As we discussed earlier with using the all-new Retinoid HPR we are reducing the challenges typically associated with using a Vitamin A derived product. We still recommend starting out slowly to introduce your skin to the active. Start by using it every 3rd day and ultimately working to using it every other day then, every day week by week.
Retinoid Serum 3% helps to improve the appearance and quality of skin with wrinkles, blemishes, intense pigmentation and age spots, enhancing its luminosity and resulting in a more even skin tone.
This powerful oil based serum using the power of Retinoid HPR (Retinoic Acid Derivative) as well as a combination of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Soja Oil, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopherol, Vitamin C- Ascorbyl Isostearate (Multi Oil Vitace) offers multiple actions without irritating the skin. With continued use you will see:
- Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles,
- The serum neutralizes the action of free radicals and protects the skin from oxidative stress. Improves the roughness, flaws and texture of the epidermis.
- Skin discolorations and age spots are reduced, delivering uniform tone, bright and shiny appearance to the skin.

One thing in your self-care routine that you should not skip is monthly visits to your aesthetician for your facial. Facials are so much more than just an hour or more of pampering. By utilizing a specialist, they can help you to identify other skin problems you may have missed or help you to use the correct products for your skin at that time.
Facials also are beneficial as they products used are typically at a professional strength and this will help to boost what you will be carrying on doing at home.
