Retinol  Why you should rethink about using it

Retinol Why you should rethink about using it

John Hamilton on 14th Oct 2020

You aren’t getting the full story with Retinol it can actually be harmful for the skin and is a total waste of time and money in terms of any long term anti-aging benefits.

A worrying official line on retinol is “Retinol is a potent form of synthetic vitamin A. Data from an FDA study indicates that retinoid ingredients may speed the development of skin tumours and lesions on sun-exposed skin.”

When applied to your skin, it will prompt the surface skin cells to turn over and die rapidly, making way for the new cell growth underneath. By encouraging your skin to do this process you are interfering with the molecular biology of those cells and also removing the natural protective surface layer which protects your Collagen Cells, Fibres & Elastins.

The new skin you are exposing through this speeded up exfoliation has not had enough time to build up its natural protection and that can mean you are more exposed and susceptible to Skin Cancer, Pigmentation Spots and Premature Ageing & Wrinkles. thats why they say you mist use a spf when using retinol ...but wait a minute are they not saying spf's contain harsh chemicas linked to skin cancer click here

 We get about 50 emails a day from people who have been using such things and all say they have aged the skin faster and most say it has damaged the skin.

There are more effective ways to stop wrinkles and fine lines without damaging your skin!

New understanding into Cell Ageing is showing that unless you have potent Antioxidants reaching the deeper layers of your skin, your efforts are not going to do much. Remember just using a cream on its own will only be able to sit on the surface layer of the skin. This is where Natural Oils step in.

Natural Oils contain the most powerful, unadulterated antioxidants and act as a carrier for the natural vitamins, fatty acids ( skins main repairers) and amino acids (the building blocks of collagen) which exist in natural oils delivering them to the dermis to boost repair, protection from free radicals and thus intensive anti-ageing without the damage of retinol. 

That's why people like Karen, below, at 65 this year has next to no lines and wrinkles

Our recommendation? Ditch synthetic damaging retinols and indulge your skin with potent Antioxidants found in unadulterated, Therapeutic Grade, Natural Plant Oils you will see in days the difference natural oils have... Most people who try our samples come back and buy full sizes within days.

Literally a difference overnight
I ordered this partly because I was looking for something natural, but also because I'm fed up with being bombarded with the old 'you must use retinol' message (I tried an expensive retinol cream from an expensive brand for about three days a while back and felt as though my face was slowly being burnt off). It was actually researching the use of retinol in skincare products that led me to this particular product, so I thought I'd give it a try. It arrived yesterday, so before bed I cleansed and applied a small amount of the oil. Firstly it smells gorgeous - no synthetic smells or 'aftertastes' with this, which I find very reassuring. Secondly, the consistency is thick but silky, so not at all like an oil slick if you know what I mean. It covers beautifully, and I can see that my bottle is going to last a really long time which makes it a superb value product even though it might appear at first that it's expensive - it really isn't. Thirdly, I woke up this morning to fresh skin for the first time in ages. I looked glowy and rested, but most of all I could see healthy, calmed, and dare I say slightly plumped skin! One night! I will continue to use this lovely oil, continue to exercise, eat properly and drink lots of water, and I think what I'm going to see is very happy, nourished skin that's doing rather well for its age :D.

I ordered various samples from you, sensitive skin, mild to rosacea and ageing skin.

I am very happy to say that I have had no reactions, my skin is less red and is smooth and hydrated.

After years of using Decleor, Dermaquest and recently Zo products I am amazed! I was recently led to believe that Retinol is the only way to combat fine lines and wrinkles and to brighten and lift the skin.

My favourite is the Imortal and luxury facial oils. I will be placing an order today.

Can you recommend a moisturiser, night cream to compliment these oils?

Thank you.
