Dermalogica® introduces new Overnight Retinol Repair . Overnight Retinol Repair accelerates skin renewal, reverses the signs of photo-aging, improves skin tone, and increases skin firmness. This is the first-ever retinol treatment to offer a unique customization option, allowing users to enjoy the benefits of a retinoid.
Key to the formula is 0.5% retinol, pure Vitamin A, which has been demonstrated to reverse both the signs of intrinsic aging (genetics) as well as extrinsic aging (environmental). The retinol molecule on its own, however, is chemically unstable, degrading with exposure to sunlight and air, so Dermalogica® utilizes microencapsulation technology to retain stability, maintaining concentration levels. The microencapsulation technology used in Overnight Retinol Repair also allows for a controlled-release delivery system which enables the active retinol to penetrate deeply into the skin for optimum results.
Overnight Retinol Repair draws on several active ingredients that work together to reduce the appearance of aging skin:
- Peptide Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 (PT-5) to boost collagen formation, treat wrinkles, and firm skin
- A unique tripeptide to stimulate hyaluronic acid and collagen synthesis, for smoother skin and reduction of wrinkle-depth
- Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (stabilized Vitamin C) to support collagen synthesis and offer antioxidant protection in combating free radicals
- A unique bioenergized Copper (Cu++) Amino Acid Complex, clinically proven to help reduce visible wrinkles and increase collagen and elastin production
While the benefits of using retinol on the skin are numerous, skin irritation can be a common side effect. To minimize skin irritation, Dermalogica® recommends starting with small concentrations of retinol application so skin can build up natural retinoid receptors and a tolerance to the ingredient over time. Taking this recommendation, Dermalogica® includes a new Buffer Cream with Overnight Retinol Repair, allowing users to control the concentration of retinol being applied to skin.
Containing 8% aloe vera extract, Buffer Cream soothes and moisturizes, without any ingredients that may exacerbate retinol irritation. During initial use, Dermalogica® recommends starting with a mix of one part Overnight Retinol Repair to three parts Buffer Cream, and gradually inversing the ratios as skin acclimates to the treatment.
