THE OUTCOME OF AN EXCLUSIVE COLLABORATION
Medik8 launch r-Retinoate® a true breakthrough in anti-ageing skincare. The innovative active ingredient inside has been created via an exclusive collaboration with a Korean ‘superlab’ where we have taken their incredible active and made it into an exquisitely high-performing finished product. So avant-garde, this active was awarded the Korean’s President Award for Technology.
THE MUST-HAVE INGREDIENTS
The secret is out, you need more than one active to visibly reduce signs of skin ageing. Collagen stimulation, quenching free radicals and skin hydration are the main elements you need to fight skin ageing. That’s why we have included the following 5 key actives in r-Retinoate:
- Our worldwide exclusive and patented encapsulated active, retinyl retinoate, is proven to be more effective yet less irritating than retinol to stimulate your skin’s collagen synthesis and cell turnover.
- Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant to quench free radicals. We have also added another antioxidant that quenches UV-induced free radicals, vitamin C. In combination vitamin E & vitamin C synergistically boost the overall antioxidant effect.
- To draw moisture to your skin and support your skin’s structure keeping it hydrated and supple, we added hyaluronic acid.
- Last but not least glycerin, an effective humectant, locks in moisture to support your skin’s natural barrier function.
ENSURING YOU GET THE FRESHEST PRODUCT POSSIBLE
All ingredients are skilfully brought together in our UK labs near London, and to ensure continued pre-manufacture freshness of our exclusive active ingredient, retinyl retinoate, it is frozen at -20ºC and flown by specialist air freight in cryogenic containers from the development facility in Korea. It is then stored in our special freezers until it is blended precisely into the finished formula creating a powerful yet beautifully elegant cream-serum, maximising anti-ageing results in every single bottle.
