Retinaldehyde is a stabilized form of Vitamin A that slowly converts to Retinoic Acid in the skin. Like Tretinoin, Retinaldehyde rejuvenates the skin and improves its cellular-turnover rate, but in a less-irritating formulation. The conversion process within the skin allows Retinaldehyde to work on a cellular level. Skin that’s more prone to sensitivity can be more tolerant of Retinaldehyde skincare products.
Retinaldehyde repairs connective tissue in the skin, boosts collagen synthesis for anti-aging benefits and increases elasticity. Retinaldehyde also balances sebaceous (oil) production, thus shrinking the skin’s pores to prevent them from getting clogged and inflamed and eliminates akne.
For people considering a tretinoin product, but can’t tolerate the flaking, peeling and irritation that can often accompany it, Retinaldehyde skincare products are the perfect solution to encourage youthful and healthy skin.
A recent British study concluded: “Retinaldehyde, which is fairly well tolerated, seems to be the most efficient cosmeceutical retinoid; it has significant efficiency toward oxidative stress, cutaneous bacterial flora, epidermis renewing, and photoaging.”
