Vitamin A esters: the science behind smooth skin
Retinol, Retinoids, Vitamin A and Vitamin A esters – a few of many magic ingredients of the skincare world loved by the beauty-obsessed. But like magic, these terms are complex and a little confusing. However, fear no more. We will provide you with the low-down on all things Vitamin A.
Commonly known as Retinol or Retinoids, Vitamin A is the perfect ingredient for those looking to stop ageing in its tracks. Beauté Pacifique’s National Training Manager Cherie Harkins says Vitamin A works to diminish fine lines, enhance collagen production and smooth skin texture, but is a powerful ingredient that needs to be used correctly.
“It’s great to want to slow-down the ageing process, however, you need to understand the ingredients in the products you’re using,” she says.
“Common side effects of Vitamin A include irritation, redness, flaking, and peeling, which aren’t ideal for those of us attending meetings or interacting with people.”
This is where our unique formula comes into play.
“Beauté Pacifique uses Vitamin A esters, which are a lot gentler on the skin, offering all the benefits of Vitamin A without any of the side effects of a Retinol.
“The esters are encapsulated in nanometer sized droplets of squalene, which penetrate deep into the skin to stimulate cells, synthesising lost collagen fibre structure to produce a younger looking appearance.
Combined with this unique delivery system, our range is able to help build the collagen and elastin fibres resulting in healthier and better looking skin.
“We recommend introducing Vitamin A esters slowly into your routine. When your skin has become used to it, you can apply Beauté Pacifique’s Vitamin A ester products every day, without the need for a break.”
