-ONLY AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOMERS IN SWEDEN, DENMARK, FINLAND & NORWAY-
A silky, lightweight emulsion containing a high-strength amount of retinal to help against all signs of ageing.
Good to know: This product is for experienced retinoid users. If you are starting out, we recommend A-Game 5.
Retinal is the "big brother" molecule of the better known anti-aging superstar, retinol. While retinol needs two metabolic conversion steps to reach the active form, retinoic acid, retinal is the direct precursor only one conversion step away from the active form the skin cells understand. It is estimated that retinal can convert more than 10x more efficiently to retinoic acid than retinol, making retinal an outstandingly effective member of the retinoid family (vitamin A family).
Once converted, retinal helps the skin cells to produce more collagen and other structural elements, making the skin more youthful, firm and elastic. It speeds up the renewal process of the upper skin layers making it smoother and more even. A-Game is a smart-aging must-have, but it is also useful as an adjacent product for fading pigmentation, as well as helping acne-prone skin.
In terms of strength and knowledge, Geek & Gorgeous would compare their 0.1% retinal serum to the strength and knowledge of a 1% retinol product but with less irritation potential and possibly quicker results.

How to use
If you are using A-Game 10 for the first time, phase in application starting at 2-3 times per week for two weeks. If well-tolerated, move up to every other evening in two weeks and finally - if your skin tolerates it - every night. Do not use around the eye area.
Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding!
Good to know: A-Game has a bright yellow color due to the retinal in it. Based on our experience, it dissipates on the skin and does not leave a yellow tint on surfaces.
