Retinol & Retinol Burn

What is Vitamin A, Retinol, and Retinoic Acid?

Retinol is Vitamin A1, which is derived from beta-carotene. Retinol is the nonactive precursor of retinoic acid. The human body converts the nonactive precursor retinol to its active form, retinoic acid.


What Does Retinol/Retinoic Acid Do?

Retinol/Retinoic Acid first exfoliates, then increases cell production. It protects the skin from environmental damage and photoaging. Retinol/Retinoic Acid tightens and makes the skin smoother and firmer. It lightens and evens skin tone by reducing pigmentation.


Why is Retinol/Retinoic Acid Irritating?

Retinoic acid contributes to cell renewal and exfoliates skin by decreasing the surface layer thickness of skin. Retinol burn is a side effect that occurs among some customers using retinol/retinoic acid products. Symptoms of retinol burn include dry skin, painful irritation, redness or discoloration, and skin flaking.
