HD Encapsulated 0.5% Retinol Complex

Containing the latest in stabilization and delivery technology, 0.5% Retinol is encapsulated in a phospholipid layer for steady time release and is emulsified in a velvety cream.


Product Description

Touted as a miracle ingredient in modern skincare, Retinol is known for its ability to renew and refresh. Retinol can act intuitively to target individual imperfections. It can also improve the appearance of uneven tone and texture and diminish the look of expression lines and wrinkles.

Each Retinol molecule is wrapped in a protective layer of phospholipids that is converted to Retinoic Acid, also known as Vitamin A, once applied. Glycerin, a Hydrophilic ingredient that draws water to the skin, works synergistically with Squalane, an emollient derived from o=olives, to provide all-day hydration. There is less surface irritation because of the unique delivery system combined with hydrating ingredients.


  • Helps the appearance of a smoother skin texture
  • Diminishes the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles
  • Improves uneven skin tone

How it Works

Each form of Vitamin A undergoes a different process to fully convert the ingredient to Retinoic Acids. Once the ingredient has been fully converted to Retinoic Acid, it works with skin’s natural exfoliation process to ensure an ageless look and feel.

Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate are retinoid derivatives of Vitamin A. They convert into Retinoic Acid to smooth the appearance of aging skin and help reduce the appearance of dark spots.

Derived from olives, Squalane works to deeply moisturize. It has a similar composition to skin’s own sebum, which makes it an excellent hydrator.

Glycerin is a plant derived humectant that works by balancing moisture levels, helping skin feel smoother and softer. It draws water to itself from the environment, ensuring hydrated skin.

Hydrolyzed Coconut Oil (Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride) is an emollient that conditions and moisturizes the outer layer of the skin.

Ceramide-3 are lipid molecules that are found in high concentrations within cell membranes. They are found naturally in the skin and play an important role for the protective layer that holds in moisture.


Apply to face and neck at nighttime. May also be used for firming on areas of the body such as arms and legs. Apply SPF daily while using Retinol at night.
