Key ingredients

Plus Icon Minus Icon

Stabilised retinol
Restores dermal thickness by normalising and regulating cell turnover from the basal cell. This leads to  an improved barrier via compact stratum corneumn and more youthful epidermis. Protects skin from UV damage and reduces fine lines through collagen stimulation. It regulates oil levels and aids in the management of acne. Retinoic acid binds to the oil gland receptors to normalise the growth of cells that produce oil (sebocytes) in turn reducing oil gland secretion and oil gland size. Retinal reduces skin hyperpigmentation as it inhibits tyrosinase, which reduces the amount of melanin produced, reduces melanocyte size, melanin clumping, and the action of increased cell turnover reduces pigmented cells from skin surface.

Acts like a humectant while controlling and maintaining water balance in the skin. It counteracts skin irritants and assists in reducing skin irritation.

A note from Terri

Plus Icon Minus Icon

The unique formula of Ultimate A contains active retinol is stabilised in a liposome. This is a more stable form of retinol, enabling an effective delivery mechanism to the skin cells and is far less likely to irritate even the most sensitive skin types. In fact, almost all skin types should be able to use this stabilised form of retinol, and you will still achieve exceptional results in regulating new cell production, reducing fine lines, controlling oil production, reducing the impact of solar damage on skin cells, and reducing hyperpigmentation.
