science behind Zoom In Icon

Retinyl retinoate is one of the only forms of vitamin A that is photostable, meaning it won't break down or lose its power in sunlight. This allows you to experience powerful, visible vitamin A benefits at both ends of the day. Retinyl retinoate is particularly effective at protecting the delicate collagen within our skin from the damaging effects of UV light. Within this innovative formula, retinyl retinoate's age-defying powers are additionally boosted by the same amount of stabilised vitamin C as our C-Tetra serum for powerful antioxidant protection against the ageing effects of external stressors.
