Glow Without the Irritation: Meet Our Bio-Retinol Serum for Sensitive Skin

Glow Without the Irritation: Meet Our Bio-Retinol Serum for Sensitive Skin

Tired of the irritation, redness, and flaking that usually tags along with traditional retinol? Keep reading for the scoop on why our new Revive Bio-Retinol Face Serum is about to become your new BFF.

Why does traditional retinol irritate sensitive skin?

Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, is a potent ingredient renowned for its skin-renewing properties. However, it can often cause irritation for several reasons:

  1. Skin sensitivity: Everyone's skin is unique, and some people naturally have more sensitive skin. The potent nature of retinol can be too intense for certain skin types, leading to redness, itching, or peeling.
  2. Adjustment period: When you first introduce retinol into your skincare routine, your skin may need time to adjust. The initial stages of using retinol can trigger irritation as your skin acclimates to the new ingredient.
  3. Concentration levels: Higher concentrations can be more irritating, especially for those new to retinol or with sensitive skin. It's often recommended to start with lower concentrations and gradually increase over time.
  4. Frequency of use: Overuse of retinol, such as applying it too frequently or using too much product, can lead to irritation. 
  5. Dryness and peeling: Retinol accelerates cell turnover, shedding old skin cells to make way for new ones. This process can sometimes lead to dryness and peeling, especially if the skin is not adequately moisturized.

What is bio-retinol?

Bio-retinol is a term used to describe plant-based alternatives to traditional retinol. While traditional retinol is a synthetic derivative of vitamin A, bio-retinol is derived from natural sources, like plants. It's often sought after by those with sensitive or mature skin for its potential to offer similar skin-renewing benefits as retinol without irritation.

What retinol alternative is best for sensitive skin? 

Our new Revive Bio-Retinol Face Serum is a gentle, plant-based retinol alternative. Crafted to plump, firm, and revitalize, this serum harnesses the skin-renewing benefits of rambutan combined with the hydrating effects of seabuckthorn and evening primrose. The result? Firming results that mimic traditional retinol without the irritation. It's the answer for those seeking a daily skincare companion, especially for mature or sensitive skin types.

Ready to try bio-retinol on your sensitive or mature skin? Revive Bio-Retinol Face Serum is now available on the Wildcraft website and in select retailers across Canada and the U.S.
