Retinol has become a massive ingredient in face creams these days, as it has proven anti-ageing benefits. As good as the results can be, for some people it is too strong an ingredient for skin, and so it is better to use face creams with natural ingredients instead. At Nakin this is our whole skincare philosophy and why we believe that we have the best retinol free face creams, with our Matt Formula Face Cream for oilier skin types and Active Dew Face Cream for drier skin types. They are filled with some of the best botanical ingredients such as hydrating hyaluronic acid, plumping cassia and protecting pomegranate.
At Nakin all of our natural anti-ageing products are retinol free and this is because we do not believe in using retinoids in our face care, as it is a strong ingredient that can be damaging to skin. Retinol is a synthetic form of vitamin A and used in many anti-ageing and acne treatments as it helps to stimulate collagen production, improve cell turnover, and unclog pores. Retinol can also help to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. There are many different over-the-counter retinol products available, but it is important to be aware of the potential effects of using a cream with retinoids in. They can be irritating to all skin types, and particularly sensitive skin. While retinol can offer some benefits, such as improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can also cause side effects like dryness, redness, and irritation.
At Nakin all of our products are anti-ageing, and we have two retinol free face creams that are designed for both day and night use, as they do not contain SPF. The Matt Formula Face Cream is a lovely moisturiser for oily, normal, combination and sensitive skin. It has long lasting hydration, nourishment and protection but without greasiness. If your skin is drier though we recommend the Active Dew Face Cream instead. If your skin is combination both would work, so it would depend on the dominant skin type of oily or dry skin. Or they can be chosen based on the preferred face cream finish, if a dewier look is preferred or not. They are both packed with natural actives and extracts that are really rejuvenating to skin. As well as not containing retinol, they are also free from ingredients such as parabens, propylene glycol plus silicones, and have a delicate natural scent, as our products are kind to even sensitive skin.
We do understand that retinol is popular though and if you do want to use a retinol face cream then we recommend selecting one that is suitable for your skin type, plus start with a lower concentration retinol product and only increase use gradually if your skin is able to tolerate it.
At Nakin we have a full range of natural anti-ageing skincare which is all retinol free and instead uses the power of plants to help skin look its best. Everything in the range is made in the UK and cruelty free.
