Medik8: Award-winning Skincare Cosmeceuticals
Medik8 Retinol 40 is an advanced, time-release, boosted concentrate designed to progressively introduce low irritation retinol to your skincare regimen.
Contains 4.0% all-trans retinol in its purest and most active over-the counter form, delivered in a new microencapsulation controlled release technology to transport stable retinol directly to the areas requiring treatment.
Retinol 40 helps stimulate the production of collagen and increases levels of epidermal hyaluronic acid, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in targeted areas. Skin sagginess, roughness and hyperpigmentation are also improved; leading to a more youthful skin appearance.

How to apply
Precise ladder method for scalable retinol dosage, with just one product. Highly recommended to individuals who have never commenced a retinol regime before as it allows gradual increase of retinol concentration while the skin tolerance builds up.
To build up skin tolerance to retinol, allow 3 day intervals between applications for a minimum of two weeks. Consult with your GP before commencing a retinol regime if pregnant, lactating, undergoing skin peeling procedures or taking prescription medication for acne.
Frequency of use: Apply every 3rd day* for the first 2 weeks.
Apply every 2nd day* from week 3 onwards.
Begin your regime by adding 0.2% Retinol 40 Boost Concentrate to your Medik8 hydrator (unless directed otherwise by your professional skincare consultant).
After completing the 6 week* cycle, ensuring that your skin is fully adjusted, you may wish to increase the retinol concentration by 0.2% or seek advice from your professional skincare consultant. The 6 week* application cycle must be followed every time the percentage of retinol is increased.
Consult with your GP before commencing a retinol regime if pregnant, lactating, undergoing skin peeling procedures or taking prescription medication for acne.
