US-based firm SkinCeuticals has expanded its product portfolio with the launch of concentrated facial cream Retinol 0.3.

The new product is designed to reduce the effects of ageing and discolouration in skin, minimising breakouts and refining pores. It is non-comedogenic and free from paraben, fragrances and gluten.

Featuring a blend of bisabolol and boswellia serrata extract, the cream promotes cellular turnover and offers soothing benefits to comfort the skin.

“Retinol 0.3 is a great product to help establish consistent skin tolerance before advancing to one of our higher concentrations.”

SkinCeuticals general manager Christina Fair said: “Through our widespread network of physician partners, we have seen market demand for a product that offers all the great benefits of retinol but doesn’t yield the infamous irritable side effects.

“This product allows us to get back to our SkinCeuticals heritage founded on Dr Sheldon Pinnell’s philosophy of three main pillars, prevent future signs of ageing with antioxidants, protect healthy skin with sunscreens, and correct visible concerns with retinol and other advanced corrective products.

“He believed daily exfoliation is an essential corrective step for healthy skin. Retinol 0.3 is a great product to help establish consistent skin tolerance before advancing to one of our higher concentrations.”

Customers are recommended to use Retinol 0.3 with in-office chemical peels to minimise signs of ageing and skin discolouration.

The $62 facial cream is available for purchase online and at select dermatologist offices across the US.
