Retinol isn't for everyone

With over 50% of the population reporting significant skin sensitivity, adding Retinol to your regime may just make sensitivity much worse. The Retinol group of ingredients can cause surface skin barrier disruption, irritation and sun sensitivity. This is particularly true of the high strength retinoids where a large percentage of users will experience significant signs of contact dermatitis such as redness, dryness and actual peeling. In a landmark research paper scientists discovered that Epionce Lytic Lotion and Renewal Facial Cream was as effective as prescription strength retinoid at reversing the signs of ageing. Skin thickness was significantly better in those who received the Epionce products and they also avoided the distressingly high rates of irritation seen with the retinoids.
