Most dermatologists agree that Retinol is the gold standard ingredient for providing true anti-aging results in an OTC topical treatments. Retinol is a cosmetic ingredient that belongs to the vitamin A family. It’s close relatives include Retinyl Palmitate which is also commonly used in OTC topical treatments. Both are slightly less potent versions of the prescription-only Retin-A ingredient.
Here, we review a few Retinol-containing products that were launched in the last year that caught our attention based on their impressive test results.
Neutrogena Ageless Intensives Antiwrinkle Deep Wrinkle Filler With Retinol SA
What impressed us most with this product is the fact that this product contains a patented technology that stabilizes the Retinol to keep it in it’s most stable and effective form.
It works to increase cell turnover to improve skin texture and tone. And most importantly, it’s clinically proven to diminish wrinkles. $18.99; mass retailers and drug stores.
Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus Wrinkle and UV Damage Corrector
contains a cocktail of age fighting ingredients. Whey protein is included for its firming properties and retinyl palmitate (a close relative of Retinol) and acetyl hexapeptide-8 for its collagen-boosting benefits.
In 4 weeks, see obvious reduction in lines, wrinkles, improved texture. But we think the most impressive part is it’s clinically shown after 12 weeks, the visible wrinkle-reducing power is remarkably close to a dermatological laser procedure. 63%, to be exact.
