Retinol, although not new has had developments over the last 4 decades. For instance, retinol is available in a variety of different concentrations, including 10 and 15 percent as well as 50, 60, and 70 percent. Some unfavorable sentiments can now be left behind as we now know that potential side effects like irritation and redness can be avoided with proper usage and product education. Let’s break down retinol further to leave misconceptions in the past.
Retinol works in two primary ways: by promoting collagen production and increasing cell turnover
Retinol because of its renewal properties is not just for middle-aged and above, but can be effective earlier as preventative and reparative treatments for exfoliation, acne, and crease lines.
Lower concentrations of retinol may be more suitable for first-time users or those with skin sensitivities. Furthermore, retinol alternatives or synergistic combinations can be of immense value to these consumers.

Hair Moisturization Retinol Alternatives
Water is your hair’s best friend, right? Not necessarily. In fact, more moisturized hair doesn’t mean healthier because hair with a very high moisture content is more likely to be brittle. The reason for this comes down to the building blocks of hair.
BASF embarked on a study to learn more about the role of lipids in the perception of moisturized hair. For those with hair vulnerable to dryness, such as textured hair, keeping this lipid layer healthy is key for truly healthy hydrated hair.
Fortunately, these lipids can be restored! Check out BASF’s Wake up Curls Deep Conditioning Mask, featuring Phytosoothe® LS 9766. It helps keep hair moisturized for softer, silkier, and more manageable hair!
