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 collagen synthesis and skin 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 the skin and support skin structure keeping it hydrated and supple, we added hyaluronic acid.
- Last but not least glycerin, an effective humectant, locks in moisture to support the skin’s natural barrier function.
THE FRESHNESS OF OUR FORMULA PRESERVED
All ingredients are skilfully mixed 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.
WHAT IS RETINOL?
Also known as vitamin A, retinol is considered to be the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing skincare, helping to visibly reduce the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. It is named in multiple studies and vast consumer testimonials as a ‘must-have’ to boost collagen production and regain skin’s elasticity. Although it has proven records of strong efficacy on visible signs of skin ageing, it needs to be specially formulated to minimise skin irritation and is recommended during your night time anti-ageing routine.
BEYOND RETINOL: STRONGER, GENTLER, FOR EVERYONE, ANY TIME
After 8 years of research with prestigious universities and dermal science institutes, Medik8 is launching r-Retinoate® formulated with retinyl retinoate, an advanced and encapsulated active ingredient for which Medik8 has a worldwide exclusive for its use in professional skincare. The molecule from the retinol family was created especially for skincare to improve the results and experience from using ordinary retinol (vitamin A). Our scientists have used their knowledge and experience with skin physiology to overcome technical challenges and maximise anti-ageing properties in every bottle. Releasing a groundbreaking cream-serum 8 x stronger than retinol yet gentler on the skin, for day and night use, even for sensitive skin.
LET’S TALK ABOUT RESULTS
Medik8 is dedicated to producing high quality skincare products with the best ingredients at the right strengths, and with a proven track record.
CLINICALLY PROVEN RESULTS
We chose to use retinyl retinoate as published studies and patent literature have revealed a number of overwhelming and unique benefits. Retinyl retinoate – the main active ingredient in r-Retinoate – is clinically proven to be up to 8 x more powerful than retinol without the irritation which makes it suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones. Incredibly, it is also capable of being applied during the day, as well at night, without loss of results.
STRONG VISIBLE RESULTS FROM JUST 4 WEEKS
r-Retinoate delivers astonishing visible results from just 4 weeks: fine lines and wrinkles are visibly softened, pigmentation visually reduced and the appearance of overall skin surface uniformity is restored. Skin looks clearer, brighter, revitalised; ultimately more youthful. Improvements become even more remarkable over time with continued use. The power of retinol is now available for all skin types, even sensitive, day & night.
