Retimitate® is a brand-new retinoid, and a world first for SkinMed, giving you all the benefits of the most potent form of retinoid – Retinoic Acid (vitamin A) – but now without all those well documented side effects, such as irritation, redness, skin flaking and photosensitivity.
As we know, retinoic acid is the active form of Vitamin A; other retinoids, such as retinaldehyde, retinol, proretinol, retinyl palmitate, are less irritating but have to convert to retinoic acid to become active, losing potency with each conversion.
Retimitate® is different.
Retimitate® does not need to convert to become active and doesn’t have the same side effect profile as Retinoic Acid; molecule for molecule, in terms of its optimisation of skin cell function, it imitates retinoic acid (hence Retimitate®) to offer outstanding results.
Boost fibroblast activity to increase collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production for tighter firmer skin.
Boost Melanocyte functionality to control excess pigment production, even skin tone and increase resistance to future pigmentation
Boost Keratinocyte activity and functionality for smoother, more even skin with improved moisture control and epidermal functionality
