NovoRetin can retain naturally occurring retinoic acid levels in the skin, which leads to retinol-like effects without the need to apply retinoids topically on the skin
Based on mastic, which is an aromatic resin from the bark of a tree that grows on the Greek island of Chios, NovoRetin™ is able to increase the amount of naturally occurring retinoic acid in the skin, which leads to retinol-like effects.
Retinol is well-known for its strong anti-aging effects and the benefits it offers for acne-prone skin. Retinoic acid, which is the major active metabolite of retinol, is responsible for these retinol effects in the skin.
NovoRetin™ is able to inhibit the activity of CYP26 enzymes that degrade retinoic acid in the skin. Thereby, NovoRetin™ can retain naturally occurring retinoic acid levels in the skin, which leads to retinol-like effects without the need to apply retinoids topically on the skin.
Clinical studies conducted on Caucasian and Asian women have shown that 2% NovoRetin™:
Therefore, NovoRetin™ serves as an ideal plant-based retinol alternative in cosmetics, providing both strong anti-aging effects and exceptional benefits for acne-prone skin.
