Retinyl Retinoate

Patented all over the world, this encapsulated molecule is a Medik8 exclusive. While it is our most gentle form of vitamin A, retinyl retinoate has actually been proven to be 8 times more powerful on the skin than retinol[1]. It can even be used during the day, unlike most forms of vitamin A, due to its exceptional stability in light.
