We all know that retinol is a highly effective anti-ageing ingredient, which is why it appears in so many eye cream products, where line and wrinkle reduction is important. However, retinol is a synthetic ingredient and can be really irritating to skin. This is why we have formulated an award-winning retinol free eye cream, which is our Nakin Eye Cream Complex. Read on to find out why it is the best retinol free eye cream.
The Best Retinol Free Eye Cream
Nakin’s Eye Cream Complex is a natural eye cream without retinol, that has been expertly formulated to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes. The special ingredients in our eye cream are also great for reducing puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. The ingredient that we use instead of retinol is hydrolysed hibiscus extract, which is a powerful natural peptide that is able to instantly smooth out lines and wrinkles. This means our eye cream is able to work in a similar way to a retinol eye cream, but without any of the potential irritation. As well as being retinol free it is also made without ingredients such as parabens, PEGs, silicones and mineral oil. It is also fragrance free which is why our Natural Anti-Ageing Eye Cream Complex is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
The other main benefit of using Nakin’s Retinol Free Eye Cream is that it helps to keep the delicate area around the eyes hydrated with hyaluronic acid. This keeps moisture in the skin and helps to plump out the skin around the eyes, which can become thin and droopy. There is also a whole host of other natural extracts in the formula, as it is made with glycerin, squalane, baobab seed oil, argan kernel oil, sunflower oil, pomegranate fruit extract, green tea, seaweed and algae extracts.
Why Use a Retinol Free Eye Cream
The main benefit of a good retinol free eye cream is that the skin around the eyes will not be subject to the kind of irritation that retinol can cause. This means that it is much kinder to skin than many of the conventional anti-ageing creams, that are filled with all sorts of irritating synthetic ingredients. One of the most common irritants is retinol which helps to remove dead skin cells, but the problem is that it can happen at an unnatural rate, and this is too much for our skin to cope with. The skin is therefore left exposed, and the skin barrier is weakened and put under stress.
Not everyone will experience irritation when using retinol, but in any event retinol is a synthetic ingredient and at Nakin we prefer Natural Skincare as it is so much kinder to skin, and helps all skin types to flourish. At Nakin we believe in helping skin to look great naturally and this is why all of our face products are retinol free.
Most of us that are using an anti-ageing eye cream are of a certain age, and when lines and wrinkles become more prominent around our eyes our skin also becomes more fragile and sensitive. So, although we might start to think that we need a retinol eye cream, it can simply be too much for skin. This type of irritation will rarely occur with a natural eye cream, and this is why we recommend them so much. A good retinol free eye cream will instead contain masses of botanical actives that do the same job as retinol, but without irritation. Like everything, when we talk about retinol products and natural products, each individual product will differ and so we are making a generalisation when it comes to all retinol and retinol free eye creams.
If you are looking for a different option from traditional eye creams, then Nakin’s Retinol Free Eye Cream is a great natural solution. It is so much more than just being retinol free as it contains many skin boosting ingredients, plus is vegan, cruelty free and made in the UK.
