Retinol, or vitamin A, is considered a natural miracle and it’s one of the most effective substances in the fight against wrinkles and signs of skin ageing. Originally, retinol was used mostly to cure acne, but thanks to its positive and more importantly fast side effects, including the slowing down of skin ageing, it has become a popular ingredient in anti-ageing skin care.
Retinol is a strong antioxidant and helps remove dead skin cells quickly and promote the production of collagen fibres thanks to its ability to exfoliate skin. Retinol can be either of plant or animal origin (fish oil, eggs, meat), but it’s also produced synthetically and widely used in both cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
