The Retinols were first manufactured in the late 1980s to mimic the anti-ageing effects of prescription skin creams. Whilst not as effective as prescription skin creams, the Retinols were found to have some beneficial effects for skin ageing (retinols will repair fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin texture).
However, the retinols have a paradoxical effect on acne prone skin - THEY CAN STIMULATE BLACKHEAD AND WHITEHEAD FORMATION. Therefore Clearskincare recommends using retinyl palmitate for skin ageing, provided the client is not acne prone.
Clearskincare New Skin cream contains a powerful 1% retinyl palmitate, the highest concentration allowable in a cosmetic cream.
