Retinol

Essentially the purest form of Vitamin A you can use on the skin, Retinol is a potent antioxidant that is most commonly used in anti-aging products. It is made up of molecules that are small enough to penetrate not only the outer layers of skin, but the deeper layers where collagen and elastin reside. This makes it especially effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also working to protect your skin from free radicals and promoting cell regrowth and repair.

It is most often found in anti-aging creams and serums, but is also used in acne and oily skin products as it can help reduce redness and pore size.
