Biocare launches the latest exciting addition of AGE Smart range by Dermalogica. The new Overnight Retinol Repair.

On Tuesday 20th October, International Trainer from the Dermalogica UK, gave an outstanding performance during the launch of the most awaited anti-ageing product, Overnight Retinol Repair.

Overnight Retinol Repair accelerates skin renewal, reverses the signs of photo-aging, improves skin tone, and increases skin firmness. This is the first-ever retinol treatment to offer a unique customization option, allowing users to enjoy the benefits of a retinoid while experiencing maximum comfort and efficacy. 

            Key to the formula is 0.5% retinol, pure Vitamin A, which has been demonstrated to reverse both the signs of intrinsic aging (genetics) as well as extrinsic aging (environmental). Studies have shown that retinol significantly restores the structural integrity of the skin, accelerating cell turnover and renewal, stimulating collagen production, improving epidermal thickness, and increasing elastin biosynthesis. The retinol molecule on its own, however, is chemically unstable, degrading with exposure to sunlight and air, so Dermalogica® utilizes microencapsulation technology to retain stability, maintaining concentration levels. The microencapsulation technology used in Overnight Retinol Repair also allows for a controlled-release delivery system which enables the active retinol to penetrate deeply into the skin for optimum results.

           As part of Dermalogica’s AGE Smart line – categorized by products containing scientifically-advanced ingredients proven to dramatically treat the biochemical reactions (aging triggers) before they start - Overnight Retinol Repair draws on several additional active ingredients that work together to reduce the appearance of aging skin:



While the benefits of using retinol on the skin are numerous, skin irritation can be a common side effect, with some individuals experiencing itching, burning, redness, and peeling. To minimize this “retinoid reaction,” Dermalogica® recommends pre-conditioning the skin, starting with small concentrations of retinol application so skin can build up natural retinoid receptors and a tolerance to the ingredient over time. Taking this recommendation one step further, Dermalogica® includes a new Buffer Cream with Overnight Retinol Repair, allowing users to control the concentration of retinol being applied to skin, and further helping them adjust to the active ingredient.

Containing 8% aloe vera extract, Buffer Cream soothes and moisturizes, without any ingredients that may exacerbate retinol irritation. Users may customize their experience, using as much or little of the Buffer Cream as they need. During initial use, Dermalogica® recommends starting with a mix of one part Overnight Retinol Repair to three parts Buffer Cream, and gradually inversing the ratios as skin acclimates to the treatment. Once a tolerance has been built, each individual can take a personalized approach, depending on skin’s comfort level, type, and condition.
