CRYSTAL RETINAL PHASE IN

Another way to overcome irritation, slowly build up tolerance by introducing vitamin A slowly into your skin care routine.

Start with low strengths of vitamin A and slowly work your way up the ladders.

This minimise irritation and redness you may experience when first using vitamin A. It helps to train the skin and allow to build Vitamin A reliance, minimising irritation levels.

When introducing Crystal Retinal strengths into a skin care routine, application should be phased in gradually.

Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other night for the next 2 weeks, then every night.

Advanced Night Restore

RETINAL/ RETINALDEHYDE (0.1%)

This is a next-generation form of vitamin A that has been proven to be 11x faster-acting and 2.8x more biologically active than retinol. Retinal is the only vitamin A form to have direct antibacterial properties, which helps to target blemish-causing bacteria such as C. acnes.

DOUBLE-LAYERED STABILISATION SYSTEM

Crystal Encapsulation

Retinal is encapsulated in a cyclodextrin crystal exterior which is slowly broken down on application skin through skin enzymes helping to slowly release retinaldehyde into the skin overnight. This gently, slowly and continuously releases the retinal, to prevent overwhelming the skin and minimising irritation. Additionally, the cyclodextrin shell physically protects the retinaldehyde from its environment.

Patented Stabilisation System

The patent-pending stability system in the formula stops retinaldehyde from breaking down in light and heat, and provides additional reinforcement to the crystal encapsulation.

This stabilisation technology will not be found in any other brands; it is unique to Medik8. Carrot seed oil is made up of beta carotene, a potent natural antioxidant which helps to block oxidising free radicals from attacking retinaldehyde and breaking it down. Alongside its encapsulation in cyclodextrin, this keeps the retinaldehyde safe and potent over time.

MULTI-WEIGHT HYALURONIC ACID

One of the major components of our natural extracellular matrix, which is the framework our skin sits on. This is important for maintaining a firm and supple complexion. With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water.

Multi-weight hyaluronic acid allows 3 different size molecules to work on multi levels of the epidermis; the smallest hyaluronic acid molecules are able to penetrate deep into the skin, drawing moisture up from the lower layers of the dermis. Larger molecules of hyaluronic acid sit on the skin as a moisture reservoir, feeding the upper layers and blocking water loss to the environment. Used together, low and high weights of hyaluronic acid distribute hydration throughout the entirety of the skin for a smooth and supple complexion.

GLYCERIN

An effective humectant, contains many OH groups which draws water from the lower layers of the epidermis to the top layers. It is one of the essential natural moisturising factors of the skin helping to rehydrate for a flexible and supple skin surface.

VITAMIN E

A lipid-soluble antioxidant, has the ability to quench free radicals. It can protect the skin cell’s membranes, which are made up of lipids and are often under attack from free radical oxidation helping to combat the free radicals attack by giving up one of its own electrons.

Start with Crystal Retinal 1 for extremely sensitive skin, clients who experience sensitivities to Vitamin A products or nervous about starting vitamin A.

Crystal Retinal 3 is recommended as the entry point for those who are new to vitamin A or have tried mild retinol formulas.

Crystal Retinal 6 is perfect for those who are looking to intensify results from Crystal Retinal 3 or wanting to upgrade their high-strength retinol results.

Crystal Retinal 10 is perfect for those who are looking to intensify results from Crystal Retinal 6.
