Important to know:
Retinol can cause significant irritation, redness, and peeling, especially around the eyes and mouth, in the early stages of treatment as the skin develops tolerance. If you have not used high-strength retinol formulas in the past, we strongly recommend that you start your retinol treatment with our retinol 0.2% in squalane and rely on higher dosages of retinol 0.5% in squalane and retinol 1% in squalane as your skin builds up a tolerance. So You’ll get the same end results without the annoying redness and flaking along the way.
Water can affect the stability of retinol. Additionally, the vegetable oils in retinol formulations can trigger lipid peroxidation and affect the integrity of the retinol. This formula does not contain water, silicone, vegetable oils, or alcohol.
