RetiSTAR stabilized retinol is an oily dispersion containing retinol, tocopherol, sodium ascorbate and PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil in caprylic/capric triglycerides. RetiSTAR is an active ingredient for the personal care industry to correct the effects of skin aging and improves the appearance of UV-damaged skin. Accelerates mitosis, increases enzyme activity, and normalizes keratinisation, which improves and normalizes the cell renewal process. With the use of RetiSTAR the epidermis and dermis grow thicker, and the skin becomes more elastic. This reduces wrinkles and lines in number, area, length and width. Studies have also shown that retinoids counteracts the physiological processes that actually lead to wrinkled, photoaged skin. Also aids in the appearance of blemishes as it has a notmalizing effect on skin pigmentation. Dissolves quickly in oil-in-water as well as in water-in-oil emulsions.
