Bio Natural Retinol + Vitamin C Booster Serum
An anti-ageing brightening boost with tetra Vitamin C, Bakuchiol and Rosehip Oil. Perfect for dull and tired skin.
Our Bio-Retinol + C Booster is an oil-based booster for your skin, designed to improve the appearance of dull and tired skin and provide the nourishment your skin needs to look radiant.
Vitamin C and Bio-Retinol are brought together to supercharge your skin in this nourishing oil-based booster. Our Bio-Retinol + C Booster uses four incredible vitamins (A, C, F and E) blended into a gentle base of Rosehip Oil, allowing this product to penetrate deeper into the skin than typical water-based products.
Vitamins C and A help to deliver anti-ageing benefits, and increase collagen production and hydration whilst boosting radiance and skin luminosity. We’ve also added an extra boost from vitamin E which is rich in antioxidants and healing on the skin.
Directions: Apply 1-2 drops of our booster into your moisturiser before gently applying it onto a cleansed face and neck. Alternatively, you could also apply 1-2 drops straight onto cleansed skin and gently massage into your face and neck.
Bakuchiol - Bakuchiol (vitamin A) is a 100% natural functional analogue of Retinol; It provides Retinol-like behaviour by significantly decreasing wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation whilst improving firmness and elasticity with no irritation. It has also been shown to increase collagen synthesis as well as improve the state of blemish-prone skin.
Organic Rosehip Oil - Rosehip oil is rich in essential fatty acids omega-6 and omega-3. The oil helps to fight signs of ageing and keeps the skin nourished and hydrated. Rich in Bio-Retinol, Rosehip helps promote cellular renewal and improve the appearance of scars.
Vitamin C- Our stable, fat-soluble Vitamin C has a penetration three times greater than water-soluble Vitamin C. It helps to improve the appearance of the skin thanks to better cell survival, better hydration and more collagen synthesis. It improves skin radiance by reducing melanin production.
Sea Buckthorn - Sea Buckthorn is packed full of Vitamin C and is also rich in Omega 7, 3 and beta carotene to help improve skin’s elasticity, hydration and texture.

What is Bio Retinol?
It is no secret that retinol is one of skincare’s most loved ingredients. From the vitamin A family, it can help to tackle signs of ageing, correct pigmentation and can be used to fight breakouts. With all of these amazing skin benefits, it is no surprise that retinol has such a cult following in the beauty and skincare world.
But it can overpower sensitive skin. Retinol works quite fast and is great for those skin types that can handle it, but by kicking your skin cells into action and demanding fast results it can come with some side effects. These can be found in the form of redness, flakey skin and irritation. This is why it is so important to learn that there are alternatives to retinol that can give you the same benefits but in a more gentle manner.
After many advancements in ingredient technology, there are now plant-derived ‘Bio-Retinols’. These are not from the vitamin A family, but work on the skin in the same way as Retinol, helping to deliver the same benefits such as anti-ageing but with less harmful side effects.
In our Bio-Retinol + C Booster we use Bakuchiol.
Bakuchiol is another plant-derived, natural alternative to vitamin A. It can be found in the seeds of the plant Psoralea Corylifolia and has been found to have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Bakuchiol holds many of the same skin benefits as retinol, in fact, clinical studies by Sytheon have found that when used over 6 weeks it improved wrinkle depth, fine lines, pigmentation, elasticity and firmness of the skin, without causing irritation.
