Retinol Liposome PF is an exfoliator and its effect of repeatedly shedding the upper dermal layer forces the skin to produce more new cells. Retinol is one of the best known and best studied of all anti-aging ingredients.
But not all retinol is created equal. Akeso's night serum contains "Retinol Liposome PF” which utilizes liposomal encapsulation technology for better and deeper penetration of the epidermal skin layer to deliver the anticipated results.
Retinol can be an unstable molecule, prone to rapid degeneration when exposed to oxygen and light. Liposomal encapsulation helps to protect, stabilize, and deliver the benefits of retinol.
