gentler and more gentle retinoid
Aqua A contains retinoid HPR - a gentle and effective form of vitamin A that is more bioavailable and less irritating than previous generations of topical retinoids. HPR Retinoid or hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HPR) is a unique derivative of retinoic acid. Unlike retinol, whose conversion to retinoic acid requires many steps, HPR works directly in the skin - minimizing side effects such as inflammation, redness, discomfort and sensitivity. HPR is also much more stable than other forms of vitamin A and has been shown to remain effective in the skin for up to 15 hours.
Benefits of Vitamin A
Vitamin A addresses a huge range of skin care issues at every age and stage of life - from acne and elasticity to wrinkles and roughness.
This is due to its unique ability to stimulate cell proliferation and renewal by binding to the skin's retinoid receptors, releasing a cascade of beneficial effects on the skin:
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles while slowing the appearance of new wrinkles.
It improves acne, reduces pore size and promotes clear skin.
Helps increase collagen and elastin content for more elastic skin.
Helps to reduce hyperpigmentation and dark spots.
Firms the skin and increases its hydration.
Improves the overall texture and radiance of the skin.
Complete skin renewal
HPR is not the only active ingredient in Aqua A rejuvenating product. Aqua A, backed by firming ceramides and a potent cocktail of botanical antioxidants and marine superfoods, ensures complete skin renewal and glow from within.
How often can I use Aqua A?
Aqua A is gentle enough to use daily as part of your evening routine. If you are just starting out with retinoids, we recommend using Aqua A every other night for the first few weeks to see how your skin acclimates before moving on to daily use. Apply an even layer to freshly cleansed skin, before bedtime only. Then use a caring facial oil (organic composition.) Retinoids can increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun, so don't forget to use SPF every day! We recommend avoiding other retinoid products (including retinoic acid + retinol) while using Aqua A. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your physician before using a topical retinoid.
