OUR SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Our Exceptionnelle A Creme offers the benefits of topical tretinoin without the irritation, and dryness.
Retinoid benefits on human photodamaged skin were first observed in middle-aged women treated for persistent acne.
These women described smoother, less wrinkled skin in addition to the clearing of acne. Improvements were noted in skin texture,
wrinkling, pigmentation, and sallowness. Although these effects were first studied using tretinoin, retinyl acetate (vitamin A) has
similar effects BUT without the irritation caused by tretinoin (and without the need for medical supervision required for the synthetic retinoid).
Many people can’t use topical tretinoin because of its side effects, which include skin irritation. We know that this is not a problem with retinyl esters,
like retinyl acetate, because they work just as well or better, because they don’t have serious side effects and don’t require medical supervision.
It is simply not worthwhile to suffer the side effects of tretinoin and other synthetic forms of vitamin A.
Our Exceptionnelle A Creme delivers the benefits of retinyl acetate safely.
Vitamin A is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of a specific metabolite, the light-absorbing molecule retinal. Vitamin A is also crucial for our skin;
when oxidized to retinoic acid, it is a growth factor for epithelial cells, where it binds to two different nuclear receptors to control gene transcription.
SKIN CONCERN: Anti-aging, Fine Lines, blemish prone skin, uneven texture
Apply a thin layer of cream to clean skin nightly before bed. If skin still feels dry, layer on another cream or oil to help hydrate.
Warning: This product increases the risk of sunburn, so care should be taken to protect treated skin from overexposure to ultraviolet light.

• If you’ve used Retin-A and found that it was too irritating to your skin, this may be a good alternative.
