A retinoid everyone can love.

What it is: A nightly retinoid made for just about everyone, that does just about everything: improves the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, pores, dark spots, and uneven tone and texture, all while nourishing skin.

Why it's special:

  • It’s formulated with 0.5% pro-retinol in the form of Retinyl Sunflowerate—an innovative hybrid of pure retinol and sunflower seed fatty acids that gives you the benefits of a retinoid with fewer of the usual downsides (irritation, dryness, peeling, etc…)

  • Stevia Leaf Extract supports the pro-retinol in helping to smooth the look of skin, specifically working on the fine lines. It’s one of many plant-based retinol alternatives you can find in nature

  • Whether you’re new to retinoids, or a seasoned pro, we designed this one for you. You get hardworking ingredients (and serious results!), balanced with a creamy texture and nourishing, plant-based humectants (like Glycerin and Mondo Grass Root Extract) that make the formula easier for all skin types to handle

  • In our clinical studies, Universal Pro-Retinol was universally loved. After 4 weeks of use: 100% of testers said their skin looks and feels renewed, smoother, softer, more radiant, and visibly transformed

  • If you want to learn more about retinoids, what exactly they can do for your skin, and how to fit one into your routine, you can read up here.

Ingredients

0.5% Retinyl Sunflowerate: A retinol derivative composed of retinol and sunflower seed fatty acids. It’s a new innovation in the world of retinoids, found to be less irritating than its predecessors, yet just as efficacious—it’s shown to improve the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, texture, and blemishes. We put 0.5% in our formula (enough to get the benefits, while still being tolerable for all skin types)

Stevia Extract: Sourced from the stems and leaves of the Stevia plant, it helps smooth the overall appearance of your skin, specifically working on the fine lines. Think of it as retinol’s naturally-derived supporting actor

Mondo Grass Root Extract: A plant-derived extract from the Ophiopogon Japonicus Root, it acts as a humectant to help your skin hold onto moisture. This keeps your skin conditioned, and helps minimize unwanted irritation that often comes along with using a retinoid

How to Use

  • For your evening routine only! Smooth a pea-sized pump over freshly cleansed and patted-dry skin. Wait around 15 seconds for it to fully absorb, and then follow with a moisturizer. Start with one or two nights per week and increase slowly (you can work up to using it every night). Since retinoids may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, always use sunscreen the following morning.

  • Warnings: For external use only. Keep out of eyes. Do not use if pregnant or nursing. This product may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, use sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product. Stop use if excessive peeling or irritation occurs.

  • Important reminders: For sensitive skin types, apply a hydrating serum (like Super Bounce) before Universal Pro-Retinol, in addition to following with a moisturizer. If you’re new to retinoids, try patch testing on a small area (like your wrist) before committing to using all over your face. If you’re also using Alpha Hydroxy Acids or other chemical exfoliators (like Solution), acne treatments (like Zit Stick), or other retinoid products consider alternating nights with Universal Pro-Retinol.
