  • Retinol can cause significant irritation, redness and peeling, especially around eyes and mouth, but the end result is amazing. Hence it is recommended to build your skin tolerance to retinol with lower concentration such as 0.2% in squalene to minimize discomfort and then gradually move to higher strength retinol.
  • Cannot be used when pregnant or feeding.
  • Please wear sunscreen as retinol can make skin more sensitive to the sun
