A-Game 5

-ONLY AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOMERS IN SWEDEN, DENMARK, FINLAND & NORWAY-

A silky, lightweight emulsion containing a medium-strength amount of retinal to help against all signs of ageing while being gentle on the skin.

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 (aka  tretinoin), 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 also 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 0.05% retinal serum to the strength and knowledge of a 0.5% retinol product but with less irritation potential and possibly quicker results. 

Cruelty-free | Vegan | Fragrance & Essential oil free | Gluten-free 

Suitable for anyone who is looking to try out Retinal in their skincare routine. However the texture of this product is more suitable for combination and oily skin. 


KEY INGREDIENTS

Retinal (0.05%):  An anti-aging superstar ingredient that is the direct precursor of retinoic acid (the active form that the skin cells understand) and shows an outstanding activity/tolerance ratio among topical retinoids. 

Allantoin & Panthenol: A classic ingredient duo known for their skin soothing and skin protecting abilities.

Biosaccharide Gum-1:  A carbohydrate molecule that has nice skin soothing and moisturizing abilities and makes A-Game even more gentle and silky.

How to use

Apply a pea sized amount to face in the PM! In your evening routine, apply liquid and gel-type products first (for example a toner or other serums) then A-Game. Follow with a moisturiser. Wear a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher in the morning.

If your skin is sensitive, start using A-Game every other day and if well-tolerated, move up to every evening in two weeks. You can try using A-Game around the eye area, but pay attention not to rub it into your eyes. 

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.

Rosacea och retinal

Produkten fungerar toppen till min hy som är känslig och har rosacea. Reagerade inte alls, brukar bli ordentligt röd av aktiva produkter men inte av denna. Har ej använt den tillräckligt för att utvärdera effekt men är hittills (2 veckor) väldigt nöjd. Kan rekommenderas!

Lite svag för mig

Väldigt skön, gillar dock lite starkare retinol; men använder denna på händer och hals/bröstkorg mest!!
