The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane is a pure Retinol. This is a known ingredient that is used to reduce the appearance of the skin by eliminating fine lines, photodamage, and general skin damage.

This water-free solution gives a pure concentration of retinol. This is an ideal product if you have never used retinol before in your skincare. This concentration is strong enough to address the problem areas such as hyperpigmentation without causing any irritation.

Retinols are also known as Vitamin A which mainly cater to reducing fine lines, photodamage, and general skin aging. It works by developing communication to the skin cell turnover and collagen production. Its function as anti-oxidant help counters the impact that the surrounding may have. Thus the benefits of The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane are plenty.

Retinols often cause significant irritation or redness to the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth while the skin develops tolerance to it. Higher-strength retinol is only to be used if you are an avid user. If you are just starting, use a lower concentration and builds towards a higher one.

The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% is water-free as it tends to affect the stability of retinol. Plant oils used in the formula can lead to the triggering of lipid peroxidation and impair its integrity. To keep this from happening this formula does not have any water, silicones, plant oils, or alcohol.

When in use sun protection is critical as the skin develops sensitivity to UV light. Thus, use an SPF. Acne-prone skin may see a temporary increase in the first few weeks. Women who are pregnant and/ or breastfeeding must avoid using it.
