This serum is a blend of some of the most powerful oils to turn over skin faster and provides vitamins that are proven to cause the skin to generate new skin cells in record time. Retin-A can also be a wonderful treatment for acne, but I have to warn that it can be amazing for acne, or it can make it worse. It is definitely worth a try as the positive results can be dramatic.
This means that Retin-Rose is perfect for aging skin issues and studies show that these oils improve the skin's ability to hold water (decrease wrinkles) and provide a "brighter" more youthful tone to skin.
Rosehip Seed Oil is one of the only ways to naturally deliver retin-a (aka retinol) to the skin in a gentle form. HOWEVER- while retinol has been used in prescription form for acne suffers, studies have also shown that daily use of retinol has the potential to exacerbate acne. It can help or it can cause problems. If you want to use this serum for acne, I recommend trying it but do not recommend daily use as it seems to be too powerful when used daily at turning over skin cells for those whose skin is already irritated and doing its best to heal.
Sea Buckthorn Oil is newly added to Retin-Rose because I found that it contains some types of vitamin A, Vitamin C, high Vitamin E, strong Anti-Oxidants and Omega Fatty Acids that are hard to come by. Sea Buckthorn is ripe Omega 7, which is a proven treatment for burns and wounds. What this equates to in your daily use is that it is capable of treating acne blemishes and even old damage from sun-burns.
Buriti Seed Oil is particularly high in vitamin E and this replenishes the skin and provides another healthy dose of topical Vitamin A. Buriti oil has also been proven to protect the skin from damaging UVB and UVA rays.
Camellia Seed Oil (from seeds of green tea) has been used for centuries in china as a beauty oil. It not only possesses the right molecular weight to be absorbed by the skin but is high in vitamin D, B and Omega 3, 6, and 9. Camellia Seed Oil has also been studied for its antibacterial and anti-yeast properties and proven to be extremely viable as use for both. Aging skin also has a propensity for being less able to fight off these types of infections and would likely be a good candidate for use in issues like Tinea Versicolor.
Tamanu Oil is included in this formula for studies showing that it greatly reduced the appearance and instigated healing of aged scars.
Argan Oil is well known in the skincare industry for a myriad of skin, hair, and nails benefits but we have included it here because of studies showing that it chemically inhibits the over-production and skin containment of melanin helping with malasma and other hyper-pigmentation issues that often occur with age (age spots).
Cucumber Seed Oil is abundant in phytosterols which rejuvenate the skin and strengthen the lipid barrier- this means a stronger collagen type and increased firmness.
The essential oils in this serum are all shown to help increase the uptake of moisture and build healthy, bright skin cells. All carefully chosen for their skin benefits, they complete this serum with rose-like scent that stimulates the skin and soothes the mind.
