For more experienced vitamin A users, it is fine to layer Night Ritual Vitamin A over Retinol TR/Intense serums and Crystal Retinal serums. This adds a boost of vitamin A into the skin, without actually moving to a stronger serum. For instance, if you layer Night Ritual Vitamin A over Retinol 3TR it can help to adapt the skin to be ready for Retinol 6TR.
Night Ritual Vitamin A adds nourishment to the skin, so if customers are experiencing any vitamin A induced dryness, this can help to nourish the skin barrier.
The classic form of vitamin A, retinol is proven to:
Increase proliferation (cell turnover) for a smoother, refined skin surface.
Increase collagen synthesis and prevent the breakdown of collagen for a plumper, more youthful-looking skin.
Decrease melanin production, targeting hyper pigmentation for a more even skin tone.
Reduce sebum production to minimise blemish formation.
Stimulate glycosaminoglycans (GAGS) to normalise moisture levels within the skin.
Thicken the epidermis for a plumber skin appearance.
TIME RELEASE TECHNOLOGY (POLYMER ENCAPSULATION)
To avoid irritation and ensure vitamin A is released in a controlled manor in the skin, retinol is encapsulated in a polymer shell to help stabilise the retinol molecule and deliver it slowly into the skin, feeding and nourishing over a six hour period.
The encapsulation slowly breaks down when massaged into skin and gently releases the vitamin A.

A lipid-soluble antioxidant, has the ability to quench free radicals. It can protect the skin cell 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.

Hesperidin helps to stimulate blood circulation encouraging detoxification around the eye area to eliminate the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. Hesperidin is also used as a brightening agent as it helps to suppress the transport of melanosomes to stop aggregations of melanin in the skin, leading to a reduction in pigmentation and dark circles.
Ideal for reducing the appearance of puffiness and darkness under the eyes. Able to shrink the blood vessels underneath the eye, it diminishes dark circles while firming and lifting the entire eye area.
Helps to shield against damaging environmental pollutants, able to form a film over the skin, Moringa acts as an ‘urban shield’ to bat away pollution particles before they can create free radicals leading to premature ageing and photo damage.
Blocks the glycation process and prevent A.G.E.s from being formed, inhibiting the process which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Carnosine also helps protects the skin from infrared rays which leaves collagen untouched for firm, smooth skin.
