The problem with retinol?

Retinol earned itself a bad reputation over the past few years for causing painful and unsightly skin sensitivity and irritation. If you have sensitive or dry skin, chemical retinol is an absolute no-no for you.

Plant-based retinols like Beta-carotene, sea fennel, seaweed extract, licorice root, and rosehip oil are promoted as natural alternatives with similar results to its chemical companion. Although these natural alternatives include vitamin A, the quantities are not high enough to achieve the same results as real retinol. Natural retinols are, however, savvy skincare saviors when it comes to protecting skin from future lines.

Experts agree that the best performing plant-based retinol currently available on the market is Bakuchiol. Find this skin superhero in Lumière de Vie® Serum Concentrate and Lumière de Vie® Intense Rejuvenation Crème.
