Retinol is a form of Vitamin A which works deep into the skin layers by affecting gene expression, enhancing collagen production and stimulating the formation of new blood vessels—over time visibly improving skin texture and tone. After gaining popularity as an acne treatment in the 1970s, researchers discovered that Retinol also “fades actinic keratosis spots, evens pigmentation, and speeds the turnover of superficial skin cells.”* Retinol is a powerful treatment for wrinkles, fine lines, rough skin, hyperpigmentation, and also breakouts.
GAB’s Natural 2.5% Retinol Serum uses a plant-based Retinol, partnering it with other skin-enriching and healing ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Jojoba and Wheat Germ Oil, Vitamin E, Propolis and other natural ingredients to enhance Retinol’s healing properties. With continued use (Retinol has a cumulative effect: the more consistently you use it, the more pronounced your results), our serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles, minimizes hyperpigmentation, improves skin's texture and tone, increases cell turnover and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, and enhances collagen production. Our 2.5% Retinol is powerful, yet non-irritating, gentle, and can even be used after microneedling if you wait for at least the recommended 1 hour afterward.

Dispense 2-4 pumps carefully into cupped palm and apply to freshly cleansed face, neck and décolleté. If using after microneedling, always wait at least 1 hour before applying serum. Follow with a moisturizer if needed. Because retinol can cause skin sensitivity, we recommend using at night. Always use sunscreen (in any weather) if you will be exposing skin outdoors.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly and discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed seek medical attention. Store in a cool, dark place not exceeding 25ºC (77ºF). Keep away from direct sunlight.
Begin use by applying every other day, if no sensitivity occurs, serum may be used daily. Avoid use of retinol while pregnant.
