Our groundbreaking Retinol Night Serum just turned one! With hundreds of five-star reviews and compelling, transformative results, our innovative encapsulated retinol serum has given us a lot to celebrate. From its revolutionary time-released retinoids to its calming antioxidant blend, this squalane-powered serum is a gamechanger if your concerns include fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, or dull, uneven skin.
Vitamin A derivatives called “retinoids” - such retinol and retinaldehyde - are gold standard ingredients for promoting healthier, more youthful skin. Retinoids work differently from other skincare ingredients by traveling deeper into the skin to change it on a cellular level and improve cell renewal and growth. These changes make the skin thicker and more elastic, visibly minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, firming skin, and reversing sun damage from the inside out.
Despite their efficacy, some people find that retinoids can temporarily cause redness, flaking, and irritation when they first start using them. Fortunately, our scientists were able to develop a retinol night serum that solves both problems, minimizing irritation while delivering a powerfully effective formula.
There are four key differences between our Retinol Night Serum and the other retinol face serums:
1. Two Kinds Of Retinoids. We use both retinol, the gold standard for promoting youthful-looking skin, and retinal, the most powerful - and gentle - nonprescription retinoid, for double the power without irritation.
2. Our Time Release Technology. We encapsulate our retinoids to ensure maximum stability and absorption. The vitamin A derivative remains active within the skin and is gradually released over 8 hours while you sleep for minimal irritation.
3. Our Advanced Antioxidant Blend. Antioxidants rosemary and saffron work within our formula to stabilize our retinoids while supporting overall skin health. This not only ensures that the active ingredients in our serum stay effective, it also means they won’t break down and irritate your skin.
4. Our Squalane-Superpowered Delivery System. Our cruelty-free, sugarcane-based squalane delivers up to 40 times more of active skincare ingredients. In this retinol face serum, squalane makes our encapsulated retinoids work harder while keeping your skin hydrated, further minimizing risk of flaking, redness or irritation.
Our Retinol Night Serum has earned a legion of devotees for the way it’s visibly transformed their skin.
“I’m currently on my second bottle and I have visible improvement in my skin,” says Biossance customer MLTKAY. “My skin is smoother, dullness disappeared, pores significantly minimized, and dark spots lightened. Highly recommended!”
We’ve been especially happy to hear from sensitive skin types who hadn’t previously had good luck using retinoids.
“I was hesitant to try this at first because I have very sensitive skin,” says Biossance customer Betajuliet. “I’m using it every night and my skin has never looked better! It looks and feels healthier, glowier, and fresher.”
