What You’ll See On The Ingredient List Retinol, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate
Why Your Skin Needs It Retinoids are a family of ingredients (including retinol) derived from vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to accelerate cell turnover, refining skin texture. All of this results in glowy, more youthful-looking skin.
How Retinoid and Retinol Are Different Retinoid is the umbrella term used to describe the entire group of vitamin A derivatives, which includes retinol, hydroxypinacolone retinoate, and tretinoin. Retinol is actually a type of retinoid.
The Clinique Expertise Clinique leverages different vitamin A derivatives such as retinol and retinoid in our most advanced de-aging products, blended with soothing ingredients to help reduce irritation or discomfort.
What Our Clinique Derm Says “Retinoid is an essential part of any anti-aging skincare regimen, because it helps make your skin look smoother and reduce the look of wrinkles.” - Dr. Emma Wedgeworth, a board-certified dermatologist based in London.
Peeling, redness, or dryness in the first weeks of retinol use may occur and are signs that your skin transformation has started. Our guiding dermatologists recommend a minimum of SPF 15 sun protection daily to help prevent future signs of aging.
