Apothekari A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum (30 ml/1 fl oz) could be called a miracle for skin if one existed. Formulated with patent-pending IconicA, this anti-aging serum incorporates stabilized retinal (retinaldehyde), the ultimate retinoid because it is the direct precursor to Retinoic Acid, the form of Vitamin A that is used by the human body. But this serum offers even more, with ingredients that deliver photo-aging protection, exfoliation, anti-inflammatory/anti-irritant properties and skin brightening effects. And it doesn’t stop there! Retinaldehyde shares similar characteristics with other Vitamin A derivatives and exhibits anti-bacterial properties towards P. acnes (the bacteria associated with acne) making it a useful addition in the management of acne as well.
If you’re familiar with what retinoids can do for your skin, then you’ll know why we formulated this anti-aging serum. The retinaldehyde in IconicA® performs closest to retinoic acid in a cosmetic topical, to deliver the ultimate in wrinkle reduction and age prevention properties to skin. It is also the least irritating Vitamin A to skin, making it ideal for all skin types.
