Highly-Stable, Water-Free Solution of 1% Direct Retinol.
Title

Highly-Stable, Water-Free Solution of 1% Direct Retinol.

This water-free solution contains 1% pure Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearances of fine lines, of photo damage and of general skin aging.

  • Retinol: a well-researched retinoid with powerful anti-aging benefits.
  • Squalane: a plant-derived emollient ingredient that offers lightweight hydration.

WATER-FREE | ALCOHOL-FREE | SILICONE-FREE | NUT-FREE | VEGAN | GLUTEN-FREE | CRUELTY-FREE


HOW TO USE: Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water-based serums but before heavier treatments.

Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure. Caution: Retinol can cause irritation, redness and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment while skin builds tolerance. If persistent irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children. Refrigerate after opening.

Retinol can cause significant irritation, redness and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment while skin builds tolerance. If you have not used high-strength retinol formulas in the past, we strongly recommend that you start your retinol regimen with our Retinol 0.2% in Squalane and adjust to higher strengths of Retinol 0.5% in Squalane and Retinol 1% in Squalane as your skin builds tolerance. You will achieve the same end results without the unpleasant redness and peeling along the way.

Note: Water can affect the stability of retinol. Additionally, plant oils in retinol formulations can trigger lipid peroxidation and can impair retinol integrity. This formula does not contain water, silicones, plant oils or alcohol.

Caution: Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids. This product must not be used in conjunction with other retinoids including retinol or retinoic acid. This product is not a treatment for acne. Acne-prone skin may experience a temporary increase in acne during the first few weeks of using any form of retinoid including those used in this formulation.

Note: When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol.

Returns & Exchanges

Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (info@socialitebeauty.ca) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

Love it!!

J’étais vraiment pas convaincue que ce produit allait fonctionner à cause du prix mais vu le bas prix j’ai décidé de l’acheter quand même. Je suis en amour!!! J’ai utilisé longtemps le retinol de ***** Elephant, celui d’ordinary dépasse mes attentes. Je l’aime plus que ma crème retinol dispendieuse. Le produit a une texture huile légère qui s’applique très bien sur la peau.

Strong product

I love this Retinol, however I have a very dry skin around my jaw. So I learned that I need to dilute it for dry area of my face in a hard way. Other than that this product is doing what is meant to be to resurface new cells..
