Ingredient Spotlight

No cosmetic ingredient has been scientifically proven to be more effective for improving the signs of ageing than Retinol.

Studies have shown that one of the main ways retinol works is by inducing the skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid within the dermal layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid is an essential component of the dermal matrix (along with collagen and elastin). As we age, our skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid slows which attributes to the thinning of the dermal matrix.

Hyaluronic acid, a water-binding molecule works within the dermal matrix, to help plump out the dermis that thins as a result of photoageing. This skin plumping can soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface.

Retinol has also been shown to work by increasing cell turn over which can help the skin’s surface to appear more refined. This key skin renewal action means retinol is often recommended as key complement to other cosmeceutical grade ingredients to target other skin concerns such as age spots, acne and photodamaged skin.

Technology Spotlight


One of the keys to the success of Ultraceuticals in the past decade has been its pure Vitamin A (Retinol) products.

Retinol is an unstable molecule. It must therefore be stabilised to maintain optimal potency until usage. Ultraceuticals team of expert research chemists have spent 5 years developing and testing its exclusive ULTRA-Reti™ microencapsulation technology for effective stabilisation and delivery of Retinol to the skin.

ULTRA-Reti™ microparticles are formed by encapsulating pure Vitamin A (Retinol) into a soft wax base which is readily absorbed into the skin.



ULTRA-Reti™ microparticles perform two active functions:
1.
Stabilisation of the otherwise very unstable Retinol molecule to maintain potency from the Australian manufacturer to the skin.
2.
Penetration enhancement as the soft wax microparticles readily absorb into the skin to maximise effectiveness.
