NEW YORK— Since debuting the first collagen-infused elixir in 2016, Dirty Lemon continues to push the boundaries of ingestible beauty. This month Dirty Lemon launches +retinol, its latest foray in nutricosmetics and the first-ever drinkable retinol to deliver youthful looking skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and stimulate natural collagen production.
What is +retinol?
+retinol features a proprietary powerhouse blend developed by Dirty Lemon’s Research & Development team. The innovative ingredients are designed to reduce fine lines and increase skin elasticity while reducing inflammation and redness.
Retinol, also known as vitamin A, stimulates the production of fibroblasts (responsible for the constant renewal of healthy skin cells). As we age, skin cell turnover and collagen production decreases, meaning the skin gets weaker and wrinkles begin to appear. An extra boost of retinoic acid, triggered by retinol supplementation, may help to counteract this process.
How Does +retinol Work?
+retinol features “pro-retinols,” a milder form of vitamin A derived from retinyl esters that metabolize in the body as retinoic acid, paired with an antioxidant rich blend of superfoods (Black Cherry, Ginger and Pomegranate).
Does +retinol Contain Any Other Active Ingredients?
- Pineapple Juice: potent anti-inflammatory agent used to reduce swollen tissues
- Ginger: packed with key vitamins and minerals with antibacterial properties
- Hibiscus Flower: antioxidant-rich botanical known to reduce oxidative stress and cell damage
When Should I Drink +retinol?
Clinical studies in this area are based on consistent daily use over a 6-12 week test period. Our potent pro-retinol formula contains 100 percent of the daily recommended dose of vitamin A. Do not consume if you are breastfeeding, pregnant or may become pregnant.
