Retinol is the Gold Standard of cosmeceuticals with a long lineage of success in fighting the signs of aging through boosting the skin’s natural cell turnover process, enhancing collagen production and inhibiting collagen-breakdown. But its predisposition to causing irritation and its short shelf life (it typically carries only 2-3 months of effectiveness) can offset its benefits.
Our founder and CEO Gogi Sangha is an expert in Microsponge® Technology, which creates a controlled, time-released delivery of retinol to minimize irritation, even in concentrations as high as one percent. This innovative system also fully protects retinol from light and air to create a more stable molecule with a shelf life of up to two years. Based on this technology, Sangha developed Retin-A® Micro prior to its patent by Johnson & Johnson.
