We’ve curated a luxurious selection of retinol products for you, from some incredible skincare brands like African Botanics, Lovinah Skincare, Maya Chia and more. Although people often use the word retinol interchangeably with retinoid, Retinoid is the ‘umbrella’ term that encompasses the Vitamin A derivatives: Retinoic Acid, Retinol, Retinaldehyde, Retinyl Palmitate, and other Retinyl esters like Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (Granactive Retinoid). Retinoids are some of the most well-researched skincare ingredients, with studies demonstrating that they help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase epidermal thickness, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and help fade age spots. Get nerdy browsing our collection of retinol products for the face, which includes retinol serums (both water-based and oil-based) retinol masks and potent retinol creams, utilizing different forms of Vitamin A.

Frequently Asked Questions About Retinol Cream
Here are some common questions and answers about retinol cream to help you decide if it’s right for you.
When should I apply retinol?
Retinol creams and serums can make skin more sensitive to UV rays, so they are usually recommended to be applied at night.
Retinol vs retinoid ..What’s the difference?
Retinoids are a class of chemical compounds derived from Vitamin A. Retinol is one type of retinoid and can be gentler than using a retinoic acid product (like Tretinoin). Retinal and hydroxypinacolone retinoate are other types of retinoid that are gentler for more sensitive skin, yet effective.
What are the best products to use with retinol?
Because retinol products can make you more prone to sunburn, you should always wear broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day. Skin barrier serums and creams that reinforce the barrier function of the skin are also recommended.
