Retinyl Palmitate Vitamin A
One of the most Effective Anti-Aging Skin Care Treatment

Retinyl Palmitate Vitamin ARetinyl palmitate, a form of vitamin A, is becoming an increasingly popular anti-aging ingredient as an alternative to tretinoin and retinol because it is a gentler, more mild vitamin A option.

Retinyl Palmitate vitamin A treatments have demonstrated similar success when compared to retinol in rejuvenating aging skin.

Retinyl Palmitate is less irritating to the skin than the other forms of vitamin A.

Although retinyl palmitate treatments are not able to be absorbed into the skin as efficiently as tretinoin, they can be used at higher concentrations without irritating the skin which makes this form of vitamin A a particularly good option for sensitive skin types.

Retinyl palmitate shares many characteristic with retinol. Neither is a retonic acid like tretinoin, instead these vitamin A derivatives convert to retonic acid when absorbed by skin cells.

Many retinyl palmitate products include an ingredient that will help promote the skin's ability to help the skin absorb and "deliver" the vitamin A to the cells such as liposome.

Retinyl palmitate shares the rejuvenating effects of the other vitamin A's by:
  • stimulating skin repair
  • increasing collagen production
  • increasing skin thickness
  • improving elasticity
  • improving skin texture
  • improving skin tone
  • reducing the occurrences of blemishes
  • decreasing enlarged pores
As an added bonus, retinyl palmitate also diminishes acne outbreaks, sharing the characteristics of both tretinoin and retinol as an effective acne fighter!

The "Vitamin A's"- Retinol, Tretinoin, and Retinyl Palmitate which are forms or derivatives of Vitamin A are considered
highly effective in the treatment
of aging skin.

Preliminary studies have indicated that Retinyl Palmitate achieves similar rejuvenating results as retinol but is considered to be much gentler skin treatment and is particularly recommended for sensitive skin types.

As with any product with a vitamin A ingredient, your skin's sensitivity to the sun will increase significantly so be sure to liberally
use your sunscreen!
