NATURAL RETINOLS 101
Ahhh retinol…one of the most highly praised ingredients in skincare. But what exactly is it?
Most simply, retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A and works on a cellular level to strengthen
the epidermis, increase cellular turnover, improve the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles and can even fight hyperpigmentation.
Most are sourced synthetically in a lab (hi retinol palmitate + tretinoin). But various botanicals have been found to provide similar retinol functionality and are now championed as natural alternatives to retinol (think: bakuchiol, cacay oil, and rosehips, just to name a few).
At Shop Good, we love these plant-based alternatives because of their gentler formulations, generally safer ingredients and their more sustainable sourcing practices… while never compromising results.
Radiant skin ahead…
