Medik8 Retinal (Retinaldehyde)
Retinal is Medik8’s revolutionary form of vitamin A, found in our cult-favourite Crystal Retinal serum. It is one conversion step closer than retinol to the active form of vitamin A (retinoic acid), that all forms of vitamin A must convert to before becoming effective on the skin. As a result, retinal is 11x faster acting on the skin than retinol, without any added irritation potential.
Retinol is the classic form of vitamin A. When retinol is applied to the skin, it is converted to retinaldehyde and then to the active form, retinoic acid, the form that all types of vitamin A must convert to before becoming effective on the skin. Once active, retinol can deliver all of the youth-renewing benefits we associate with vitamin A.
Medik8 Retinyl Retinoate
Patented all over the world, this encapsulated molecule is a Medik8 exclusive. While it is our most gentle form of vitamin A, retinyl retinoate has actually been proven to be 8 times more powerful on the skin than retinol. It can even be used during the day, unlike most forms of vitamin A, due to its exceptional stability in light.
Medik8 Vitamin C
Hailed as an anti-ageing superstar and a core part of the Medik8 regime, vitamin C is a must-have in any morning skincare routine. Our collection of vitamin C products are expertly crafted with only scientifically proven forms of vitamin C within stabilised formulations. We have a format for everyone; nourishing creams, potent serums and SPF combinations.
Peptides are also the building blocks of proteins. Our skin is naturally overflowing with different kinds of proteins and peptides, including some of the most important; collagen and elastin, which are both responsible for retaining the skin’s natural strength and resilience. When applied to the skin, peptides can act as communicators, triggering a response in certain cells of the skin.
Medik8 Glycolic Acid (AHA)
With the smallest particle size of all the AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), glycolic acid is able to effectively penetrate the upper layers of the skin. Here it works to break down bonds between skin cells so they are easily exfoliated away to reveal fresher, newer skin cells beneath.
Otherwise known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is one of the most potent anti-inflammatories in skincare. It works to effectively soothe and restore the appearance of irritated, redness-prone and blemish-prone complexions. It is also able to support the prevention of melanin overproduction in the skin, helping to minimise areas of visible hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone.
Medik8 Hyaluronic Acid
With the ability to attract and retain more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture into the upper layers of the skin, leaving the complexion feeling hydrated.
Medik8 Salicylic Acid (BHA)
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA), which is able to soften and dissolve keratin, a protein that can block pores and cause congestion in the skin. Salicylic acid is oil-soluble, so can penetrate into blockages and exfoliate from within the pore.
Our SPF range uses a complex of premium, modern chemical sun filters to shield the complexion from harmful UVA and UVB rays. We carefully selected them for their high performance on the skin, photostability and skin-friendly benefits.
