What makes this product unique?
The skin hardly utilizes Retinol directly. The Vitamin A (Retinoid) Pathway ends with the creation of retinoid acid that is recognized by the skin’s retinoid receptors to jumpstart a range of youth-regenerating mechanisms (keratinocytes’ proliferation, collagen synthesis, strengthening of extracellular matrix etc.)
Retinyl Esters --> RetinOl --> RetinAl (or Retinaldehyde) --> Retinoic Acid (the form recognized by the skin receptors)
In short, the anti-aging power of RetinOl begins only after it is converted to RetinAl via retinol dehydrogenase (RDH), and lastly from RetinAl to Retinoic Acid via retinol dehydrogenase (RDH).
Now skip one step. Geek & Gorgeous A-Game 10 offers an express pass to get the best out of the supremacy of retinoid on reversing the aging damage very gently yet dramatically.
