Level up your skincare with the new pure retinol products from Skingredients


Introducing your next TWO new skincare icons! Multi award-winning Irish skincare brand Skingredients has announced the launch of Retinol 0.6% + B3 Serum and Retinol 1% + B3 Serum – the brand’s most transformational formulas yet. ‘Retinol is dubbed the holy grail in skincare by dermatologists, pharmacists, cosmetic chemists, facialists and clients alike.

'Many are wary of it, and many adore it, and so we are here to deliver PURE retinol in a controlled manner that garners undeniable physical results with confidence to match,’ explains Skingredients Founder and CEO Jennifer Rock. ‘I am often asked why I have not launched newness after newness since the brands launch – and my response is that I believe in science, accuracy and only promising results with the clinical data to substantiate them. This takes time – and NOW is the time! We are beyond proud of this proven formula.’

'This is not a complex – this is retinol at its finest – pure and potent at the levels we state in a safe and controlled delivery mechanism, suitable for all that are serious about levelling up their skincare.’

What are these four actives that you speak of?

Skingredients Retinol + B3 houses four powerhouse ingredients in one – namely vitamin A (pure retinol), B3+ (niacinamide), hyaluronic acid and humectants and thereby offering a list of 10 key benefits for the complexion:

  1. Retinol rocks you purely and safely.
  2. Reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  3. Stimulates collagen production.
  4. Reduces dark spots and pigmentation.
  5. Regulates oil by dissolving excess sebum and dead skin cells.
  6. Reduces skin coarseness and rough patches.
  7. Reduces inflammation. 
  8. Boosts the skin barrier.
  9. Provides free radical defense.
  10. Less chance of irritation by a sophisticated encapsulated delivery system which helps to protect retinol from degradation and oxidation.
  11. Improves skin radiance.

Tried + tested by a global panel base

Four years in the making, Skingredients enlisted a group of 40 panelists aged 20-50 years old, to aid the development stages of this new anti-ageing must have.

What makes it unique? It’s potent, pure and clinically proven PLUS it’s been used by our panelists for over three years and has been created to be safe and effective for Irish skin.

Available in two strengths – 0.6% and 1% – the difference between these formulas is the concentration of retinol and niacinamide within the formulation, with the 1% being nearly double and therefore the more potent formula. We recommend that you begin your Retinol + B3 journey with 0.6% to allow your skin to gently acclimatise to the formula.

How to use: 

Gradually introduce to the skin. Begin by using x2 weekly, then x3 on week 2 and so on until x5 weekly is achieved. Whilst introducing, don’t use on a night with an acid application. Use in the evening only, post cleanse and before additional hydrators (if needed). Always use SPF in the daytime following use.

  1. Patch test behind your ear to determine if you have any sensitivity or allergic reactions to the ingredient.
  2. If you're new to retinol, start with Retinol + B3 0.6% and gradually increase over time as your skin gets used to it.
  3. All forms of retinol can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, so it’s best to use this ingredient at night.
  4. It is highly recommended to use sunscreen with a factor of at least SPF 30 during the day when using retinol – but we use SPF 365 days a year regardless, right?!
  5. Avoid other exfoliators on the same application: Avoid using other exfoliating products acids or peels while using retinol on the same application, as these can increase skin sensitivity.
  6. If skin is sensitised, Skingredients Skin Good Fats Ultra Hydrating Ceramide Moisturiser can be applied as a buffering agent, minimising the chance of irritation.
