Retinol, hailed as a skincare marvel, has taken social media by storm, boasting myriad benefits from collagen production to wrinkle, fine lines or hyperpigmentation reduction. This ingredient is a synthetic derivative of vitamin A, the group of fat-soluble vitamins common in carrots, eggs and sweet potatoes. Today, it is widely used in serums and creams for skin care. With over 1.2 billion views on TikTok and hundreds of 650 000 of Instagram posts under #retinol, its popularity continues to soar.
As a skincare popular ingredient, hyaluronic acid reigns supreme, offering unparalleled hydration and combating dryness, aging, and acne. Its ability to maintain skin moisture levels makes it a must-have in any skincare routine.
Niacinamide is another very helpful skin care ingredient, catering to all skin types while addressing acne, redness, and signs of aging. Niacinamide prowess lies in building keratin production keeping the skin firm and healthy. This versatile protein minimises redness, blotchiness, fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation while also protecting the skin from sun.
