- Retinol is a gentler relative of tretinoin, the active ingredient in prescription-only Retin-A . It delivers similar results, with fewer side effects.
- Encapsulated retinol is a type of retinol that is wrapped in a protective barrier—which makes it both more stable and less likely to cause irritation, since it can penetrate more deeply into the skin.
- In an eight-week clinical study by the brand, 88% of patients saw an improvement in skin texture, 88% said skin felt more resilient, 82% reported their faces appeared firmer, 82% saw an increase in skin brightness, 82% said skin looked refreshed, and 79% reported that their fine lines and wrinkles appeared less visible.
Once daily in the evening, apply a pearl-size amount to the face, making sure to avoid the eye area, and gently smooth onto skin until absorbed.
When introducing retinol into your routine, it’s best to start slowly—retinol may cause dryness, redness, and flaking. To avoid irritation, begin by using Obagi360 Retinol 1.0 two or three times a week. Gradually increase use as your skin builds a tolerance.
Retinol can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 daily.
