When it comes to anti-ageing, vitamin A is the gold-standard. That being said, not all vitamin A is created equal.

Retinoic acid is the strongest form of vitamin A on the market. It works rapidly to significantly combat signs of ageing, but it also comes with extensive side effects – excessive dryness, peeling, redness and irritation to name a few. For this reason, it is only available by prescription from a doctor or dermatologist.

Retinol is the most popular form of over-the-counter vitamin A. It also provides significant anti-ageing results. When applied topically, it must be converted into retinoic acid by the skin before it can take effect, a process that requires a two-step conversion:

This two-step conversion slows down the effect of retinoic acid on the skin, which means less irritation, but it also means you have more of a wait before seeing results.

Always eager to improve and innovate, Medik8 researchers have harnessed the power of a new form of vitamin A that is even better than retinol.




Introducing Crystal Retinal™
This powerful anti-ageing serum-cream has been formed with retinaldehyde, an advanced vitamin A molecule that serves as the direct precursor to retinoic acid. Because this advanced molecule only requires one conversion to retinoic acid, it can can deliver results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A up to 11x faster than classic forms of retinol. Even better, it remains as kind to the skin as traditional retinol thanks to Medik8’s crystal-shaped encapsulation system. This is truly the next-generation of vitamin A.

Superior StabilityMedik8’s crystal encapsulation acts as a time-release mechanism as well as a stability enhancer. Retinaldehyde is encased within a crystal-shaped molecular vehicle that is gradually broken down by the skin’s natural enzymes as the serum is massaged into the skin. This unique action controls the release of the active to ensure the formula remains stable, absorption is optimised and the highly-potent formula is distributed evenly and consistently throughout the night.

Optimum Hydration
Featuring a nourishing blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acid, glycerin and vitamin E, Crystal Retinal hydrates skin at every level while strengthening the skin’s barrier to keep moisture locked in tight.

Clarifying Action
Unlike many other forms of vitamin A, retinaldehyde boasts direct, powerful antibacterial properties, making it the perfect anti-ageing product for blemish-prone skin. When used over time, it diminishes the bacteria responsible for breakouts to promote a healthy, balanced complexion.
