Retinol, an anti-aging hero

Effectively stimulating collagen production within the skin.

As you get older, the skin produces less collagen and its ability to regenerate slows down. Retinol can help boost collagen production, leading to improvements in wrinkles and pore size. Additionally, retinol enhances skin texture and radiance by promoting skin cell turnover.

Pure Retinol (0.3%)An anti-aging hero ingredient that boosts collagen production within the skin. Despite its high concentration, IOPE’s expertise ensures successful stabilisation of the ingredient.
