Retinol 3TR Intense
A lightweight vitamin A night serum that refines skin tone and texture to visibly diminish fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. As the most effective ingredient in anti-ageing, vitamin A also balances uneven skin tone and helps to decongest pores for a clearer complexion. Crafted with Time Release Technology, the innovative serum allows retinol to be “drip-fed” into the skin throughout the night, preventing unwanted irritation and dryness. Retinol TR+ Intense has been supercharged with climbazole, a compound proven to boost the results and anti-ageing benefits of vitamin A without increasing the irritation. The formula is also infused with squalane, a deeply hydrating ingredient; specially selected to ensure skin is left instantly plumped and smoothed.
Time Release Technology Medik8 developed a set of Time Release delivery systems to encapsulate the active. This gently, slowly and continuously releases the vitamin A, to prevent overwhelming the skin and minimising irritation. The Time Release technology has the added benefit of protecting the vitamin A from its environment, to enhance its stability over time. Each of our vitamin A products has a different encapsulation system, yet all benefit from minimised irritation and enhanced stability..
Supercharged with climbazole
Able to boost the effects of retinoids in the skin without increasing their irritation. In the skin, retinol and retinal are converted to retinoic acid which is the active form of vitamin A that stimulates collagen production, cellular turnover and reduces pigmentation. Climbazole is able to block the enzyme which breaks down retinoic acid, leaving a reservoir of vitamin A for the skin to use. Strives for maximum vitamin A results, while keeping irritation at an all time low
Found naturally in the skin’s protective lipid barrier, squalane helps to restore the skin’s defences and deeply moisturise for smooth and supple skin
Safflower Seed Oil
A natural skin conditioner high in linoleic oil to support the skins natural barrier
