Consumers have come to know retinol as one of the top anti-aging ingredients but two new products from Ole Henriksen spotlight a natural retinol alternative. As effective as retinol can be for smoothing, resurfacing and preserving the look of youthful skin, it should be outright avoided by consumers who are pregnant or experience skin sensitivities or irritation.
Ole Henriksen recently introduced the Goodnight Glow Retin-ALT Sleeping Creme for nighttime use and a companion daytime product, the Glow Cycle Retin-ALT Power Serum. Both of these products feature bakuchiol, a plant-based retinol alternative that is derived from the Ayurvedic babchi plant, which is beneficial for toning, smoothing, retexturing and targeting fine lines and wrinkles.
Alongside the natural retinol alternative in these "Retin-ALT" products, Ole Henriksen also includes fruit, flower and algae extracts.
