Vitamin A Acetate (Retinol)
Also called "The Normaliser", Vitamin A Acetate (Retinol) has attracted great interest in recent years as it is the active agent for treatment of aging skin in beauty care. Vitamin A promotes the enzyme activity in the skin. It thickens the epidermis and can regenerate skin prematurely aged by UV-radiation. This product can also assist in increasing the skin's elasticity and the reversal of photodamage.
Vitamin A is widely used in products such as moisturisers, lotions, body butters, shampoos, conditioners, gels and scrubs. It is particularly good for anti-aging formulations.
Vitamin A is for cosmetic use only. By law, not more than 1% can be added to cosmetic formulations.
