How It Works

The product of 8 years of work, revolutionary molecule retinyl retinoate is a hybrid of traditional retinol and clinical strength retinoic acid. Encapsulated retinyl retinoate is exclusive to Medik8 and only available in r-Retinoate formulations. Able to act directly on the skin without breaking down into parts, the molecule helps to stimulate cellular regeneration and supports collagen synthesis. 8 times more powerful than retinol, retinyl retinoate visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and smoothes skin’s texture for a more youthful-looking complexion.1 Incredibly, retinyl retinoate has been proven to be photostable, meaning it doesn’t break down in sunlight like traditional forms of vitamin A such as retinol - so it can be used during the day; plus is gentle enough even for the most sensitive of skin.

In 2018 Medik8 harnessed the power of retinaldehyde in a clever crystal encapsulation which gently releases the powerful active overnight so the skin is not overwhelmed. 11x faster working than retinol2, retinaldehyde is almost as powerful as retinoic acid, while remaining as gentle to the skin as traditional retinol. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, studies on retinaldehyde show direct, powerful antibacterial properties. This allows it to target blemish-causing bacteria; promoting a healthy, visibly clear complexion.

Their powers combined, retinyl retinoate and retinaldehyde present the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. r-Retinoate Intense is truly the most advanced anti-ageing product we have ever made. Ceramides and drone-targeted copper peptides are intricately mixed in a hydration-drenching cream overflowing with nourishment for the skin. Experience a new level of age-defying skincare.
