The Vitamin A in Exfol A plus is Hydrogenated Retinol, otherwise called Retinol H10. This new and improved formula takes advantage of Retinol H10 technology, a complex of triglycerides, Tocopherol and Hydrogenated Retinol that is much more stable when exposed to both heat and light. It is guaranteed to maintain its potency and superior performance even under the most adverse of conditions, thereby ensuring that the desired cosmetic anti-ageing outcomes are achieved.
Retinol H10 is a new generation of Retinol that increases the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the skin’s layers, causing an immediate plumping effect and assisting to visibly diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
The addition of Lana Blue, a blue-green retinoid mimicking algae in Exfol A Plus further enhances results.
As we know, all forms of Vitamin A are enzymatically converted to Retinoic Acid prior to use by the cell. Once the skin converts Retinaldehyde to Retinoic Acid, it cannot be converted back into a form of Vitamin A that can be stored. That is why the skin converts only enough to perform the desired function and leaves the rest in the storage form of Retinol.
When prescription strength Vitamin A in the form of topical Retin-A is used, the skin cannot shut it off which results in two things; irritation from over-stimulation and over-exfoliation.
The non-compliance issues commonly associated with Retin-A use means that Physicians are always looking for effective alternatives and Exfol A Plus offers exactly that, change in the skin without associated trauma thanks to the inclusion of Tocopherol.
