The most advanced anti-aging formula in the Medik8 range, the new r-Retinoate Youth Activating Cream Intense is a sumptuous problem-solving all-in-one night cream.

A first in vitamin A skincare technology, r-Retinoate Intense intertwines groundbreaking molecule retinyl retinoate with crystal-encapsulated retinaldehyde (retinal), for previously unattainable results. Only available from Medik8.

8x stronger than retinol, and 11x faster too.

Medik8-exclusive molecule retinyl retinoate is blended with patent-pending, crystal-stabilised retinaldehyde, for outstanding, one-of-a-kind anti-ageing results that are superior to classic forms of vitamin A.

All-in-One Night Cream

Power-packed with our most innovative Medik8 technologies, r-Retinoate Intense is additionally bolstered with multi-weight hyaluronic acid, ceramides and drone-targeted peptides. Everything you could ever need in your evening skincare routine in one sumptuous night cream.

Age-Defying Results

Proven to deliver astonishing results, the ability of this unique hybrid molecule has been demonstrated in multiple studies including a clinical trial published in the highly esteemed British Journal of Dermatology.


Using a revolutionary blend of Retinyl Retinoate and crystal-stabilised Retinaldehyde suspended within a pool of silk cashmere, this intensive treatment works to retexturise and brighten the skin from the very first application. These two powerhouse ingredients have never been paired together before in the same formulation, making this one of the most effective anti-aging creams on the market.

Added Ceramides condition and support the skin while drone-targeted Copper Peptides stimulate collagen production deep beneath the surface. To minimise dryness and sensitivity, this cream also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Squalane and Vitamin E. With continued use, skin becomes more even in tone, firmer, smoother and looks more youthful.

Suitable for most skin types, massage a small amount into cleansed skin in the evening for best results. Start off by applying it twice a week before gradually increasing the frequency of application depending on skin’s tolerance.


Key Ingredients

Retinyl Retinoate – 8 times more powerful than retinol and stable both day and night, this non-irritating vitamin A helps to stimulate collagen synthesis and supports the regeneration of skin cells.

Encapsulated Retinaldehyde – Proven to work up to 11 times faster than retinol , retinaldehyde is a revolutionary new form of vitamin A that targets fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation and uneven skin texture.

Drone-Targeted Copper Peptide – A collagen-supporting copper peptide encapsulated in a polymer system which dives through the layers of the skin to specifically target collagen-producing cells.

Vitamin E – A lipid-soluble antioxidant that is naturally present in the skin, vitamin E protects the skin from free radicals and regenerates vitamin C for optimum power.
