Medik8's Crystal Retinal 6 is a cashmere-textured serum that harnesses retinaldehyde, a next generation vitamin A molecule. Unlike retinol, which must first be converted to retinaldehyde and then to retinoic acid within the skin, Crystal Retinal only requires one conversion to retinoic acid. Delivering results up to 11 times faster than classic forms of retinol, retinaldehyde rapidly resurfaces the skin while helping to plump the complexion. Delivered in a crystal encapsulation system, the active is time-released throughout the night. This means retinaldehyde is just as gentle on the skin as retinol, but has effects similar to prescription-strength retinoic acid. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, retinaldehyde also has the added benefit of having direct bacterial action, making it the ideal anti-ageing ingredients for blemish-prone skin.
