Exclusive to Medik8: A true breakthrough in anti-ageing skincare, r-Retinoate is a revelation in vitamin A technology.

Beyond Retinol

A culmination of 8 years of hard work by a Korean superlab in collaboration with Medik8 scientists, r-Retinoate contains the revolutionary new patented vitamin A molecule, retinyl retinoate. This incredible active is a hybrid of retinol and retinoic acid, harnessing the power of clinical-grade vitamin A with the low irritation of traditional forms of retinol.

The innovative molecule is able to stimulate collagen synthesis 8 times better than ordinary retinol.1 Retinyl retinoate can even be used during the day – you are no longer limited to just applying vitamin A at night. Sensitive skin rejoice – r-Retinoate is non-irritating and carries none of the issues of ordinary retinol.

Promoting beautiful skin for life, r-Retinoate goes beyond the power of retinol to smooth the appearance of lines, visibly reduce wrinkles and improve tone, texture and clarity.

The unique serum has guaranteed freshness as the encapsulated retinyl retinoate is flown over from Korea via frozen, cryogenic air freight. Then stored in specialised freezers, the retinyl retinoate is expertly blended into the finished formula with only the best ingredients. Containing vitamin C, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid, the easy-to-apply formula combines the very best of skincare in one bottle.

Exclusive to Medik8, this award-winning technology within this serum-cream has been highly commended with the coveted Presidential Award by the Korean Ministry of Health and was even named Best Anti-Ageing Moisturiser of the Year by Cosmopolitan UK in 2016 at launch (among many other accolades since). This scientific breakthrough has taken the skincare world by storm.
