More info

Retinal is the "big brother" molecule of the better known anti-aging superstar, retinol. While retinol needs two metabolic conversion steps to reach the active form, retinoic acid (aka  tretinoin), retinal is the direct precursor only one conversion step away from the active form the skin cells understand. It is estimated that retinal can convert more than 10x more efficiently to retinoic acid than retinol, making retinal an outstandingly effective member of the retinoid family (vitamin A family).

Once converted, retinal helps the skin cells to produce more collagen and other structural elements, making the skin more youthful, firm and elastic. It also speeds up the renewal process of the upper skin layers making it smoother and more even. A-Game is a smart-aging must-have, but it is also useful as an adjacent product for fading pigmention, as well as helping acne-prone skin.

In terms of strength and knowledge, we would compare our 0.05% retinal serum to the strength and knowledge of a 0.5% retinol product but with less irritation potential and possibly quicker results.

Who is it for?

Pretty much anyone who is looking to try out Retinal in their skincare routine, but the texture of this product is more comfortable for combination and oily skin. 
Skin Type
ideal for combination, oily skin
Skin Problem
smart-aging, wrinkles, loss of firmness, pigmentation
Texture
bright yellow, silky and light emulsion 

how to use it?

Apply a pea sized amount to face in the PM! In your evening routine, apply liquid and gel-type products first (for example a toner, our exfoliants or our other serums such as HA 5 or B-Bomb) then A-Game. Follow with a moisturizer! Wear a sunscreen SPF 15 or greater in the morning!

If your skin is sensitive, start using A-Game every other day and if well-tolerated, move up to every evening in two weeks. You can try using A-Game around the eye area, but pay attention not to rub it into your eyes. 

Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding!

Good to know: A-Game has a bright yellow color due to the retinal in it. Based on our experience, it dissipates on the skin and does not leave a yellow tint on surfaces.

Shelf life: 1 year from production (unopened), 6 months PAO (period after opening)
