NovoRetin - natural retinol alternative

NovoRetin - natural retinol alternative

NovoRetin™ is a plant-based active ingredient that increases the naturally occurring retinoic acid in the skin to produce retinol-like effects without the need for topical application of retinoids.

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles becomes more pronounced. This is due to a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for the skin's structure and texture. NovoRetin™ works by stimulating the production of these proteins, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

What is retinol and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Retinol is a type of vitamin A and belongs to the retinoid group. In our body, this vitamin plays an essential role in many different biological processes, including in the skin - here vitamin A promotes skin cell production and helps skin renewal.

Retinol is known for its remarkable anti-aging effects and its benefits for acne-prone skin. It also increases collagen production and its antioxidant effect reduces the negative effects of free radicals on the skin.

In the skin, retinol is first converted to retinal and then to active retinoic acid. It is this retinoic acid that is responsible for retinol's powerful effect on the skin.

Disadvantages of retinol

  • Can irritate the skin and cause dryness and redness
  • In the EU, cosmetic products can contain retinol in concentrations of up to 1%
  • Pure retinoic acid (tretinoin) is only allowed in prescription medicines
  • The use of products with retinol is not recommended during pregnancy
  • Because the ingredient makes the skin more photosensitive (sensitive to sunlight), sunscreen with SPF should be used daily

What is Novoretin?

NovoRetin™ is a plant-based active ingredient that can increase the naturally occurring retinoic acid in the skin to produce retinol-like effects without the need to apply retinoids topically to the skin.

NovoRetin is based on mastic, which is an aromatic resin from the bark of a tree that grows on the Greek island of Chios. The mastic is secreted from the trunk and main branches in the form of tears. After curing, which produces an ivory translucent resin, it is collected, washed, and cleaned.

Since ancient times, mastic has been known for its unique aroma. Mastic is said to have been used in the Roman Empire for its effects on the skin and was later used to make scented soaps.

Benefits of NovoRetin™

1. Can be used in daylight

One of the unique advantages of NovoRetin is that it can be used in both day and night skincare. Unlike other retinoids that can cause sensitivity to sunlight, NovoRetin™ is stable and does not break down in sunlight, so it can be used safely during the day. This means that users can experience the benefits of NovoRetin™ both day and night, resulting in even greater improvements in skin texture.

2. Reduces signs of premature aging

One of the main benefits of NovoRetin is its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A study conducted by Mibelle Biochemistry showed that NovoRetin™ reduced the depth of wrinkles by up to 14% after eight weeks of daily use.

This means a significant improvement in skin texture and can help improve the overall appearance of the face.

3. Improves skin hydration

NovoRetin can improve skin hydration. As we age, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture, resulting in dry and "flaky" skin.

NovoRetin can help improve the skin's moisture retention by stimulating the production of hyaluronic acid, a natural moisturizing substance found in the skin. As a result, skin is softer, smoother, and more moisturized.

4. It has positive effects on impure skin

Due to its ability to increase the content of retinoic acid in the skin, NovoRetin also has positive effects on impure and acne-prone skin.

It has an anti-comedogenic effect and reduces the amount of sebum in the skin and the appearance of skin imperfections.

5. Reduction of dark spots and pigmentation

NovoRetin™ is also effective in reducing dark spots and hyperpigmentation. These skin conditions are often caused by overexposure to the sun, hormonal changes, and aging.

NovoRetin™ works by stimulating the production of new skin cells, which helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. The result is a more even skin tone and a brighter, more youthful complexion.

6. NovoRetin increases the amount of retinoic acid

Retinoic acid is the most active metabolite of retinol and is therefore responsible for the effects of retinol on the skin. Since retinoic acid plays an important role in skin maintenance, it also occurs naturally in skin cells.

NovoRetin improves the content of retinoic acid in the skin, which in turn improves skin density.

NovoRetin works by increasing the amount of retinoic acid naturally present in the skin. At the same time, it slows down the breakdown of the skin's own retinoic acid (which normally breaks down quickly).

7. Suitable for sensitive skin

NovoRetin does not cause irritation and is therefore also suitable for sensitive skin.

Retinol-Like Serum

Retinol-Like Serum is a natural alternative to retinol, also suitable for sensitive skin. NovoRetin™ and selected ingredients improve the elasticity and density of the skin and provide a more youthful appearance.

NovoRetin™ moisturizes the skin, reduces the signs of aging, and visibly improves the condition of oily, impure skin. It also significantly reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles and increases skin softness.
