Retinyl acetate

Retin-A and retinols are all a type of Vitamin A. This product contains a small amount of natural Vitamin A to give the skin a little Vitamin A boost. Vitamin A stimulates the dermis where collagen, elastin and the blood vessels are. This stimulation reduces wrinkles and increases blood flow to the skin. It also aids in exfoliation which creates a more even tone in the skin. Vitamin A decreases the clustering of melanin granules. The clustering results in brown spots on the skin. Vitamin A helps to reduce these brown spots. Vitamin A decreases sebum production which reduces and treats acne beautifully.
These tiny molecules have the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin and are able reach and to repair the lower layers of the skin. It increases the cell turnover by promoting the upper dermal lay to shead which produces new cells below. This sheading and producing cycle increases the production of collagen. Retinyl acetate is considered an exfoliator but a gentler form than retinol.
