Retinal Vs Retinol

- What's the difference?

The body converts Beta Carotene into Retinol, Retinol into Retinaldehyde and Retinaldehyde into Retinoic Acid. All of these Vitamin A derivatives are important for skin health however Retinoic Acid struggles to penetrate the top layer of skin and this stems into irritation and sun-sensitivity on the skin’s surface

Retinaldehyde is a smaller molecule than Retinol, the skin is better able to use & store this form of Vitamin A. Unlike Retinol, Retinaldehyde is not sun-sensitising and doesn’t increase risk of UV damage or pigmentation, meaning it can be worn morning & evening

Recent studies show Retinol thins the skin, is highly toxic and serves no long term benefit as it’s not a form of Vitamin A the skin can store for future use
