No, Really Everyone Needs a Retinol Product


First things first, let’s make sure we’re all clear on what retinol actually is—a derivative of Vitamin A that was initially used in skincare to treat acne (Retin-A) but is now often found in over-the-counter formulas to fight fine lines, wrinkles, and improve the overall tone of skin. 


All sounds great, right? But the problem that many had with retinol products is that they could often cause redness and flakiness, especially in those with sensitive skin. Clark’s Botanicals founder Francesco Clark set out to create a formula that everyone could use, based on our foundation of radical botanicals.


And after much experimentation, Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream was born.


Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream is an intensive treatment that features a time-release Retinol to target signs of aging. Upon application, skin is infused with moisture, and the breakthrough formula works through the night to transform the complexion. Over time, skin appears brighter, firmer, and more youthful as fine lines and wrinkles fade. The inclusion of colloidal oatmeal allows you to use the product more frequently, ultimately giving you a better result than if you used a typical retinol product less frequently.


Francesco says: “I’ve long wanted to create a potent night treatment that works much in the way the body does naturally, repairing environmental damage and generating collagen-producing cells. I wasn’t entirely impressed with the ingredients available until I came across a new time-release Retinol called Tagravit™ R1, which is one of the key ingredients in our new Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream. The time-release Retinol ensures potent delivery upon application, release from the microcapsule, and diving deep into the layers of the skin to fight fine lines, wrinkles, increase cell regeneration, and target acne. I also included potent actives such as Colloidal Oatmeal, Red Clover Extract, Vitamin E Oil, Jasmin Extract, and Brighlette™ Marine Ingredient that work on multiple levels to penetrate deeply, enhancing the skin’s natural moisture retention, reducing wrinkles, brightening, refining pores, and firming and smoothing the skin.”

Next up was treating the delicate skin around the eyes, which is also prone to fine lines. Clark’s Botanicals Retinol Rescue Eye Serum takes a multi-pronged approach to tackling signs of aging around the eye, with a concentrated serum texture that allows for unparalleled levels of efficacy, a breakthrough formula of 18 active ingredients, and a cooling ceramic applicator that de-puffs instantly. Says Francesco, “The serum texture of this product is key. It allows for the 18 active ingredients to reach the deepest layers of the skin, which is where the real benefits happen. In addition, we paired Retinol 50 C—a super efficacious version of retinol in oil form—with Colloidal Oatmeal. This allows for the anti-aging benefits of retinol minus the adverse reactions many people experience, because the Colloidal Oatmeal is incredibly soothing.”

You’re never too young to start wearing retinol products. Who wouldn’t want to start fighting the signs of aging before they even start?!? And with these two products, you can get intense results with the side effects. It’s a win-win

    I’ve tried to diminish my melasma for years… even derms said that my skin was to stubborn to expect my dark spots to be lightened or removed. Well, guess what?? 4 weeks of Retinol Rescue and they are noticeably lighter! I look forward to seeing what happens in 8 and 12 weeks!
