“Retinol Super Bounce Serum” has successfully passed skin compatibility tests, dermatological tests, skin irritation tests on sensitive skin, and was confirmed hypoallergenic in skin allergy tests.

Retinol 4X Multi-Tune™

A tightly-packed quadruple action firming formula designed to replenish skin density. 

  • Bio-seletinoid™ promotes elasticity and collagen production – Independently-developed dual-functional retinoid ingredient that combines anti-wrinkle and brightening properties. The ingredient promotes production of Collagen Type IV and offers fast activation without the need for a conversion process.
  • Granactive Retinoid protects skin’s elastic layer – Next-generation hypoallergenic retinoid ingredient. The  ingredient helps to protect the skin’s elastic layer from being degraded by factors hindering skin elasticity and offers fast activation without the need for a conversion process.
  • Pure Retinol boosts skin elasticity  – An anti-aging super hero ingredient with proven effectiveness in improving elasticity, moisture barrier and more. IOPE first introduced retinol in a cosmetic product back in 1997. The ingredient works on the skin by undergoing a conversion process.
  • Encapsulated Retinol ensures sustained skin elasticity – Pure retinol was enclosed in capsules to provide a longer-lasting firming effect. Once it comes into contact with the enzymes on the skin, the capsules release the pure retinol, which then undergoes a conversion process to become effective.

How does Retinol 4X Multi-Tune™ differ from traditional retinol?
Instead of simply using pure retinol, we combined it we combined it with two cutting-edge retinoid ingredients called Bioseletinoid™ and Granactive Retinoid, along with encapsulated retinol, which was created by enclosing pure retinol in biocapsules. This is IOPE’s exclusive 4-layer retinol and retinoid complex formula, designed to provide a tightly-packed quadruple firming action.

Ingredient nomenclature:
Bioseletinoid™ is listed as: Kojyl Methylenedioxycinnamate.
Granactive Retinoid is listed as: Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate.
Pure retinol and Encapsulated retinol are listed as: Retinol.

The effectiveness of the Retinol 4X Multi-Tune™ complex was evaluated using artificial skin tests that simulate real biological skin tissue in a 3D format.

How to apply the product

During your morning and evening skincare routine, when it’s time to use the serum, pump 1-2 times to dispense an adequate amount of product and evenly apply it across your face. Massage it gently until it’s fully absorbed. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen as the final step in your morning routine to keep your skin protected.

  • Due to the nature of retinol, you may notice that the colour of the product may darken or it may have a peculiar odour.
  • To preserve the freshness and potency of retinol, store the product away from high temperatures and direct sunlight.
  • If you find that there’s a small amount of serum left in the container and it’s not dispensing properly, just give it a gentle tap. This will ensure that the contents are evenly distributed along the bottom of the container.

IOPE’s synergistic routines

Recommended routine 1: Retinol + Retinol. Professional treatment to address both wrinkles and elasticity.

Step 1: PDRN Caffeine Shot.
After using a toner, apply the product evenly to your forehead and cheeks.
