What is retinal?

by Carolien Verheul |

Aging is inevitable, but at the same time a luxury. This makes the term "anti-aging" far too negative. As if getting older is a bad thing. That's why we have created a new skincare line under the gracious name "Honestly Aging. A completely new product range packed with active and natural ingredients such as retinal and hyaluronic acid.


But what exactly is retinal and what does it do for your skin?

Both retinal and retinol are forms of vitamin A. This vitamin boosts the renewal of skin cells. This gives the skin a smoother, more even appearance and therefore prevents premature skin aging. The powerful formulation of retinal means you get results 11 times faster, which you would only see with excessive use of traditional forms of retinol products. Retinal is also perfect to use on slightly more mature skin. It stimulates your collagen production, which plumps the skin, reduces fine lines and leaves your skin looking more even. So although it is similar to retinol, it is more effective and less likely to cause skin irritation.


Natural version of retinal

Furthermore, we also use an all-natural version of retinal, which fits completely with CÎME's values & standards. The big advantage is that it has scientifically shown skin improvements, but is much softer than retinol. In addition, it combines more easily with other skin-friendly ingredients. So using this version is better for all skin types, including sensitive skin.


Honestly Aging products and their benefits

The new Honestly Aging line consists of three products that contain retinal: 


The first new product is the Honestly Aging retinal serum. This product improves your skin's hydration and elasticity, will intensely nourishes your skin, reduces and prevents wrinkles and fine lines, evens out dark spots and will even reduce rosacea and redness.


Secondly, we have the Honestly Aging nutri-intense day and night cream. This cream has the same benefits as the serum and also protects against UV radiation and dehydration.


And finally, we have the eye cream. This cream reduces puffiness and dark circles, hydrates intensely, reduces and prevents wrinkles and fine lines. Soft focus powder brightens the eye area. This formula is 100% perfume free, so it is extremely suitable for sensitive eyes.


Who are these products for?

We don't put an exact age on this line. Whether you're 25 and want to apply this line or 55, that's entirely up to you. Just know that there are specific ingredients added to this line to take even better care of wrinkles as well as fine lines and lines of dryness. The Honestly Aging line is also great for people who suffer from rosacea and redness, which is unique since the use of regular retinol products is strongly discouraged for this skin type.
