Meet the retinol that's superior in quality and safe for all skin types: iS Clinical's Retinol+ Emulsion 0.3...

You may already be aware that the European Commission has implemented regulations for over-the-counter retinol products, restricting the concentration of all retinols to 0.3%. These new restrictions aim to mitigate the risk of overexposure to vitamin A, which studies suggest could potentially compromise skin barrier stability and liver function in extreme cases.

If you’re an avid retinol user, there’s no need to worry about sudden changes in your skin. Whether you're in your twenties combatting breakouts or seeking to address and prevent fine lines, iS Clinical has tailored a solution for you with their Retinol+ Emulsion 0.3, perfectly compliant with EU regulations.

Over the past two decades, iS Clinical has dedicated itself to developing an advanced formulation that not only distinguishes itself from the hundreds of retinol products on the market, but also ensures tolerability. Highly active and fast acting, Retinol 0.3 is of botanical origin, encapsulated in bio-identical lipids, providing easy and safe delivery to the skin whilst optimising skin health. Added ‘boosters’ encourage a gentle cell renewal process in the epidermis, creating more youthful functioning cells.

'We’ve become fixated with high strength formulas with many consumers thinking a higher number on the label is better when it is the quality of ingredients and formulation that matters above all else,' says Dr Charlene DeHaven, MD Clinical Director at iS Clinical.

Transformative boosters found in Retinol 0.3 include:

  • Bakuchiol - enhances the powers of retinol with increased skin tolerability.
  • Ectoin – a plant-derived Extremozyme that safeguards and restores our skin's DNA.
  • Vitamin C - compounded with Colloidal Gold to promote evenness, brightness, collagen stimulation, and skin healing.
  • Shea Butter - acts as an antioxidant, preserving the skin barrier's health.
  • Copper Tripeptide-1 - an integral part of the body's active emergency response system for healing.
  • Rice Bran Extract, Rosemary Extracts and Vitamin E - deliver antioxidants, proteins, and nourishment to the skin as well as boosting the effect of retinol by 32%.
  • Poria Cocos Extract - hydrates, protects, and minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
