    What makes this product unique?

    This inspiring vitamin A squalane serum professionally includes two well-studied ingredients:-

    a) 0.5% Retinol - A time-released, highly-stable form of active retinol in a shielding capsule technology to defy aging concerns with minimal irritation. Retinol is a powerhouse cell-communicating agent that carries several benefits, including wrinkle-softening, skin-strengthening, and re-firming, for overall younger-looking appearance.

    b) Squalane - a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the human skin sebum. Squalane has high emollience, is an incomparable hydrator. Consistent use prevents loss of hydration that damages dermal flexibility. This ingredient never clogs pores.

    Note: We recommend pregnant moms to use products containing retinoids only after the breastfeeding stage.

    It works.

    I have been using this product for two months, using it every other day. Since adding retinol to my routine, I have been waking up to really soft skin. With a mix of other products from here, I have been able to break the cycle of dry, flakey skin and restore its moisture. Not too sure about fine lines but I did not purge or breakout and I have ridiculous acne-prone skin.


    Lovely texture, easy to mix with PM moisturiser, soaks into skin! After a few weeks of use, even my partner noticed a crease between my eyebrows had disappeared! Keen to continue to retinol journey.

    Works well

    this product is quite light and watery, and absorbs really quickly, I am watching the improvement. I have only used this for a couple of weeks but I can already tell my lines are a little softer.
