The first topical retinoids for skin care were introduced in the 1970s. Since that time, they have been proven to be effective remedies for a number of skin care issues.
Why Use Retinol?
Retinol is pure Vitamin A that converts to retinoic acid within the skin and scientifically proven to produce healthy, plump skin cells.
Because Retinol's molecular structure is small enough to penetrate the outer layers of the epidermis, it can repair deeper layers within the skin.
Collagen and elastin are positively impacted by the benefits of Retinol. Retinol stimulates collagen production. Retinol helps to rebuild and repair elastin fibers.
Retinol accelerates cell turnover, encouraging dead skin cells to naturally exfoliate more quickly, thus revealing healthy, fresh cells.
Retinol is excellent in aiding the repair of sun-damaged skin.
Retinol provides overall skin revitalization.
Retinol minimizes the appearance of large pores.
Retinol is helpful in the treatment of mild to severe acne, and in acne scarring.
Synthetic forms of Vitamin A are well-known as Retin-A® and Tretinoin, however both are much more irritating than pure, natural Retinol.
Retinol, used as directed, results in smooth skin, acne control, refined pores, revitalized texture and tone, fewer lines/wrinkles, and visible improvement of sun damaged skin.

If desired... you may use our BellEvolve .50 Retinol Lotion in conjunction with a non-acid, non retinoid moisturizer. You would apply your retinol first... allow it to absorb into the skin completely... then layer moisturizer on top.
Should signs of over drying, redness, flaking or general irritation develop, discontinue use for two weeks. When you begin using the product again, use it only twice a week to avoid future irritation.
ALWAYS use an SPF 30+ when using acids and/or retinoids... it's always a "best practice" to wear an SPF 30+ with *any* skin care regimen.
Shelf Life: 6-9 months when stored in a cool, dry place.
