Choose from our Retinol 0.5% Serum or maximum strength 1% Retinol Serum both the anti-ageing and anti-acne superstar of all our skincare products!
Retinol enhances hydration, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and has a whitening effect to help with hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. Retinols have the amazing ability to increase our skin's cell turnover which helps reduce acne outbreaks by preventing dead cells from clogging pores.
The encapsulated Retinol is fully stable in our formula as it only bursts when applied to the skin, and after permeation in the skin, it oxidizes and becomes a retinoic acid, ensuring greater results related to whitening and reducing skin wrinkles safely.
Our ceramide-rich serum is supplemented with nourishing, soothing plant extracts to calm skin and ease redness. We have included Australia's very own native super fruit Davidson Plum, Ginger and Bisabolol extracts as well as West Australia's very own Fragonia Essential Oil*.
Think of Retinols as the marathon runners of the skincare world - no flashy start to the race but hardworking, consistent and patient as it can take up to 12 weeks to see to results but wow when you do, you’ll be amazed at how much younger-looking, firmer, and radiant your skin will look and feel.

Pump serum onto fingertips and gently massage into the face and neck areas - every second night only. Ensure you avoid the lips, eye area keeping it to the perimeter of the orbital bone.
Use at night, between your choice of our 3 in 1 Gel Toner and moisturiser.
If irritation occurs, wash off immediately and discontinue use.
Tips and Tricks
If you haven't used products containing Retinol before, it's strongly recommended that you start with the Retinol 0.5% Serum and step up to the 1% strength after 3 months.
We highly recommend using the serum every third night for the first couple of weeks and gradually increasing usage to every second night to minimize any potential irritation. Retinols can be irritating when first introduced into your routine.
It can be common to see a purge of acne or some flakiness for the first 2-4 weeks of introducing Retinols.
If sensitisation occurs, like redness, flaking, tenderness or drying of skin, you can mix this serum into your moisturiser or you could always have a Retinol sandwich - apply moisturiser, apply Retinol serum and then apply another layer of moisturiser.
Pay close attention to how your skin responds and adjust usage accordingly.
Do not use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Retinols may make your skin more sensitive to the sun so please protect your skin daily with sunscreen rated SPF 30.
Firstly I admitted that I’m 45 and definitely need to pay attention to the lines that are appearing, it was time to use products suited to my drying and aging skin. I’ve never had to do much due to my heritage blessing me with beautiful olive skin. I had tried the peptides from Wild Fusions and damn, they lifted my droopy eyes daily so retinol was next! OMG plumping is the best word, I couldn’t stop feeling my face, so plump and soft, I was astounded. I feel my forearms to my face to compare and my face is soft and smoother. I use it every second or third night and I use sunscreen daily now, I never did before but I don’t want to lose the results I’ve gained so far. I’ve looked at selfie’s and from before and now and I’m impressed by the comparison and that’s the main thing. Definitely recommend this product
