Mixlab Squalane Retinol serum
An active serum to nourish, reduce ageing and photo-ageing with 20% vegan squalane and 0,3% of retinol. The serum can be used pure as treatment to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation or mixed with other mixlab serums to prepare a more specific and personalised product.
Vegan squalane is a fantastic humectant that closely matches the skin’s natural squalene, providing excellent moisture and ingredient penetration. However squalene (original form) is not a stable ingredient and can be pore clogging. To create Squalane a hydrogen molecule is added to squalene which allows it to be lighter and not clog the pores.
Olive Squalane is a clear, odourless, natural emollient that helps to smooth the skin and retain its moisture. Olive Squalane is very light, and easily absorbed into the skin. Due to its easy absorbability, it is an excellent carrier for other ingredients, and when combined with Retinol it is an ideal treatment for wrinkles and sun-damaged skin.
The retinol in this serum is stabilized in the 100% oil formulation that preserves the effectiveness of the product over time. In this formulation we use the most active pure form of retinol. Derivatives of retinol as retinyl palmitate that can be found in other skin care products have a very low efficiency compare to the pure alcohol form but are more stable and easy to incorporate in formulations.
