Retinols are found naturally or synthetically; natural retinols are activating ingredients that come from vitamin A. "Activating" means they can work to repair, restore, protect, and nourish cells. Retinols stimulate collagen, promote cell turnover, soften the appearance of fine lines and lessen age spots or mild hyperpigmentation.
There are many natural oils that contain high levels of vitamin A like rosehip, bakuchiol and apricot kernel oil. All of these are recognized as retinol oils and are effective treatments for all skin types. Apricot kernel oil has a satiny smooth texture and deeply nourishes the skin helping it rebuild tissues, cells, and target fine lines and wrinkles.
Apricot kernel oil also has a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids as well as vitamin E and offers anti-inflammatory properties. It can soothe mild skin irritations like acne, or easily reddened skin and eczema-prone skin.
A retinol oil used consistently in a beauty routine can really make a noticeable difference.
