Why Retinol is the most proven anti-aging ingredient available?

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

Retinol is the real, proven, FDA-approved anti-aging magic ingredient. Retinol significantly affects both cellular and molecular properties of the epidermis and dermis, as shown by skin biopsy and noninvasive imaging analyses.

Clinical studies show four weeks of Retinoic acid and Retinol treatments both increased epidermal thickness, and upregulated genes for collagen type 1 (COL1A1), and collagen type 3 (COL3A1) with corresponding increases in procollagen I and procollagen III protein expression. Facial image analysis showed a significant reduction in facial wrinkles following 12 weeks of Retinol application.

Our skin has metabolic machinery to do the conversion which is a two-step process: retinol -- > retinaldehyde --> retinoic acid (tretinoin). Retinoids (same family of Retinol and Retinoic acid) come from vitamin A and are one of the most popular ways to help skin look younger. They significantly boost the turnover of the skin and that's why by using Retinoid-contain products, you observe they peel away the top layer of your skin cells.

Retinoids trigger your body to make more collagen, a protein in your skin, muscles, and bones. It’s what keeps your skin elastic and firm. This means fewer wrinkles, smoother, firmer and tighter skin. They’re also helpful for acne prone skin as it normalizes keratinization and makes the pores produce less sebum. Furthermore Retinoids stimulate new blood vessels, which can give your skin a rosy color. They also help fade age spots and smooth rough patches.

Hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide and Retinol are one of the most popular skin care combinations which makes Retinol works in more effective way. Both Hyaluronic acid and Niacinamide are water-based treatments that complement each other's hydrating effects. Hyaluronic acid hydrates skin cells while Niacinamide protects the skin's surface and prevent moisture loss.

In combination with Retinol, they help with boosting collagen production (Retinols main task) by deeply hydrating skin cells, beside reducing the risk of irritation that may occur by retinol.

Fernian Retinol Rejuvenate, by taking advantage of the golden combination of Retinol, Hyaluronic acid, is a potent product acting as a revolutionary anti age cream.
