Retinyl propionate has been shown to be a less irritating version of vitamin A, and very effective for fighting the signs of aging as well as managing acne. At Jil Goorman Beauty our retinyl propionate serum is formulated with mandelic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and kojic acid—all powerhouse ingredients to help lighten and brighten the skin and fight pigmentation and acne scarring. In addition, our serum contains two of the most popular peptides available on the market today: acetyl tetrapeptide-2 and acetyl hexapeptide-8 . Both peptides promote collagen, block melanin synthesis (which causes unwanted pigmentation), reduce scarring, and plump the skin.
As you get older, your skin naturally loses some of its firmness and elasticity, and peptides are one of the best ways to restore that by boosting collagen production in your body. Collagen is an essential building block for everything from bones and skin to muscles and tendons. In addition to restoring elasticity, our peptides have been compared to Botox for their ability to diminish fine lines.
Keep in mind that retinyl products can dry out your skin, so you want to pair this retinyl serum with moisturizers to keep your skin healthy. Be mindful when using other harsh scrubs or aggressive chemicals when using these products.
This retinyl propionate serum contains 10% mandelic acid, 0.75% retinyl propionate and collagen producing peptides. It is among our best and most multi-faceted products due to its anti-aging and acne properties.
