Perfect Product Pair
How It Works
The product of 8 years of work, revolutionary molecule retinyl retinoate is a hybrid of traditional retinol and clinical strength retinoic acid. Its encapsulated form is exclusive to Medik8 formulations.
Able to act directly on the skin, the molecule helps to stimulate cellular regeneration and supports collagen synthesis. 8 times more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and smoothes skins texture for a more youthful-looking complexion.*
*Retinyl retinoate supports collagen synthesis 8 times more than retinol Kim et al., Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry, 20018, 16, pp 6387-6393
Incredibly, retinyl retinoate has been proven to be photostable, meaning it doesn’t break down in sunlight like traditional forms of vitamin A and is gentle enough even for the most sensitive of skin.
How To Use
After cleansing in the morning and evening, apply r-Retinoate Day & Night Eye Serum around the delicate eye area, being careful to avoid the eyelids.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to medik8.co/patch for an in-depth guide to patch testing.

The Science Behind
“All ingredients are skill-fully mixed in our UK labs. To ensure continued pre-manufacture freshness of our exclusive active ingredient, retinyl retinoate, it is frozen at -20ºC and flown by specialist air freight in cryogenic containers from the development facility in Korea. It is then stored in our special freezers until it is blended precisely into the finished formula creating a powerful yet beautifully elegant cream-serum: maximising anti-ageing results in every single bottle.”
