Bioretinol - vegetable gold

"It even smoothes rhino skin" - this is a quote from one of the blog reviews of our Rescue Night Oil. The main ingredient responsible for this spectacular action is bioretinol, i.e. retinol in a vegan version. It's time for you to get to know each other better.

Retinol and bioretinol
If you are interested in skin care, you must have heard the term retinol more than once. This derivative of vitamin A is one of the most effective ingredients for rejuvenating and improving the appearance of the skin, loved by dermatologists. We do not doubt its effective properties, but when introducing it to your routine, you need to know that retinol is not perfect:

  • not suitable for sensitive and couperose skin,
  • sensitizes the skin, increases its photosensitivity (so it should not be used during the day),
  • may cause discoloration if skin is not properly protected from sunlight,
  • at too high concentration, it may cause skin dryness or irritation,
  • is obtained synthetically or is of animal origin.

Fortunately, plant bioretinol alternatives appear on the market, which are perfect for everyday care. Natural equivalents of vitamin A for cosmetic use are obtained from plants such as Bakuchi (Psoralea corylifolia) or Hairy Hitch (Bidens Pilosa). The latter od hundreds of years has been valued as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant agent, for example in South America, mainly in Peru.
In clinical trials on bioretinol, it has been shown that Bidens pilosa works effectively in the fight against wrinkles, does not irritate, is photochemically stable (yes, you can use it even in summer!) And most importantly, it is completely safe and suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. It is the active ingredient Bidens Pilosa that you will find in the formulas of our Rescue Night Oil and Galenic Illuminating Mask!

How does bioretinol work?
Effectively! Bioretinol strongly regenerates the skin without irritating it. It is an anti-inflammatory ingredient that will help you fight acne, but also rejuvenating - it fights free radicals, smoothes, firms and supports skin cell regeneration. Its advantages also include lightening discolorations.

When should you introduce bioretinol to your care?
Whenever you want! The sooner the better. Unlike retinol, Bioretinol is suitable for all skin types. It is worth introducing our Rescue Night Oil and the Galenic Illuminating Mask to your evening care routine. We recommend massaging a few drops of the oil into the cleansed skin of the face every day before going to bed, and to intensify the effect, apply a mask 2-3 times a week (before applying the oil) for 15 minutes. Your face will thank you with a radiant, firm and rested complexion. It's really worth it!

You don't know how your skin will react to this ingredient? You don't have to start your adventure with bioretinol with a 30 ml bottle. Rescue Night Oil in the travel size version with a capacity of 8ml has been introduced to the store for people who are uncertain about skin reactions or are head over heels in love with the cosmetic, who want to take the oil with them on every trip.
