Retinol 1%

The Ordinary

A stable emulsion of retinol.

This water-free formulation contains 1% pure Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearances of fine lines, of photo damage and of general skin ageing. While Retinol has been studied extensively, it is irritating to the skin and newer technologies exist that mimic the visible effects of Retinol without causing skin irritation. For this reason, we generally recommend using Advanced Retinoid 2% instead of this formulation.

Note: This formulation can be diluted to reduce irritation potential while skin builds tolerance.

Retinol 1% can cause significant irritation, redness and peeling in the first few weeks of use until the skin builds tolerance. These reactions are much stronger around the mouth and around the eyes. We would suggest using newer retinoid technologies such as that found in Advanced Retinoid 2% so as to avoid these unpleasant initial side effects.

Directions Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Use sun protection in the AM.
