Retinol is still the product most recommended by dermatologists
It is quite easy to understand why ingredient suppliers often claim new products as retinol-like, almost always taking very minor functional attributes of retinol.
Because even after 20 years of retinol use, retinol is still the product most recommended by dermatologists.
Can you imagine a product with the major benefits of retinol but none of the problems?
That really would be a Ultimate Retinol-Alternative. Sytenol A (INCI: Bakuchiol), a natural well-defined compound, indeed is the Ultimate Retinol-Alternative.
It has all the benefits of retinol – Anti-ageing, Skin Protection and Anti-acne, but none of the negatives. It is miscible with almost all types of emollients and very easy to formulate.
Additionally, Sytenol A is an excellent stabiliser of retinol under photo-oxidative environment and can be used topically during the day.
Sytenol A works by modulating multiple molecular and cellular targets. This has been proven by micro-array, rtPCR, cell culture and histochemistry studies.
Finally, its performance has been demonstrated by multiple clinical studies – anti-ageing, skin protection and anti-acne.
Sytenol A is covered by multiple issued US (8,529,967; 8,859, 021) and pending patents.
