The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane is a waterless solution that contains 0.5% pure retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearance of fine lines from general skin aging, and an excellent anti-acne product.
While retinol has been studied extensively, it is irritating to the skin and there are newer technologies that mimic the visible effects of retinol without causing skin irritation, hence the addition of the squalane, which is a gentle and soothing active ingredient
Apply a small amount of The Ordinary Retinol 0.5% in Squalane to the face at night as part of your skincare routine, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected sun exposure. Store in a cool, dry place.
