Certain plants such as Calendula and Seabuckthorn are naturally rich in proVitamin A and are therefore the plant-based version of retinol. Carotenoids also help with the ideal functioning of the melanocytic cells, which are responsible for even skin pigmentation.
In conventional skincare retinoids are animal-derived retinols that originate from enzymes found in milk and eggs. These ingredients are produced in a lab and the skin doesn’t recognize them as natural and reacts frequently with dryness, peeling, irritation and redness.
The bioretinol present in plants is potentiated and balanced by hundreds of other beneficial plant components. Together they stimulate ideal cell regeneration without sensitizing the skin.
Excessive cell renewal can stress the skin, which can lead to the unwanted production of free radicals. The cosmetic industry may promise fast results, but the skin is an organ with determined cycles and there are no shortcuts.
True skin regeneration is a gradual process. To achieve the best and most enduring results, consistently supply your skin with the best natural nutrients.
