Medik8 Crystal Retinal 10
Crystal Retinol 10 30ml
Uncover radiant, youthful skin with Crystal Retinal 6, a potent overnight serum that can deliver results comparable to clinical-grade vitamin A up to 11x faster than classic forms of retinol. Unlike retinol, which must first be converted to retinaldehyde and then to retinoic acid (vitamin A’s active form) within the skin, Crystal Retinal requires just one conversion to retinoic acid. This accelerated action rapidly resurfaces the skin while rebuilding collagen to promote a youthful, radiant complexion. Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, skin texture is left smooth and supple and overall tone is both luminised and clarified.More than that, it actively helps reduce blemish-causing bacteria to keep skin clear and balanced. In just 4 weeks, skin is noticeably younger, smoother and undeniably radiant.
Time-Release Retinaldehyde | A high-performance, encapsulated active that enhances collagen production and cellular regeneration to promote a younger-looking complexion. Proven to work up to 11x faster than standard forms of retinol, this next-generation active provides results comparable to prescription-strength vitamin A while remaining as gentle on the skin as traditional retinols.
Hyaluronic Acid | With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000x its own weight in water, this moisture-retaining molecule draws water from the air into the skin to provide intense hydration. Naturally occurring in the body, it also cushions skin cells to give an instant plumping effect.
Vitamin E | This powerful antioxidant targets free radicals to reduce the rate of premature ageing, while boosting the moisture-retention capacity of the skin to promote optimum hydration. Works synergistically with vitamin C to boost overall antioxidant effect.
Glycerin | As a natural humectant glycerin traps water within the skin to leave it hydrated and comfortable.

*In a study of 20 people using Crystal Retinal 10 over 4 weeks
Clinical-grade vitamin A, otherwise known as retinoic acid, is an exceptionally powerful skincare ingredient for youthful-looking skin. Highly potent and wildy efficacious, it is able to trigger cellular regeneration and collagen production to fight all visible signs of ageing. Retinoic acid is only available with a prescription, but vitamin A is available over the counter in the form of retinol skincare products. Retinol has similar effects to retinoic acid, however it must first be converted to retinaldehyde and then to retinoic acid to be used by the skin. Crafted with retinaldehyde, Crystal Retinal 10 requires just one conversion to retinoic acid. This means that it is able to produce results comparable to retinoic acid up to 11 times faster than classic forms of retinol. The advanced active is carefully encapsulated in a crystal structure that is broken down by the skin’s natural enzymes when topically applied. This ensures maximum stability and absorption while allowing the vitamin A active to be released gradually into the skin while you sleep for minimal irritation. Combined with hydrating hyaluronic acid and skin-soothing vitamin E, Crystal Retinal 10 targets fine lines and wrinkles for smooth and visibly youthful skin. Unlike other forms of vitamin A, retinaldehyde boasts direct, powerful antibacterial properties. This allows it to target acne-causing bacteria; promoting a healthy, visibly clear complexion.
|How to use
Crystal Retinal 10 application should be phased in gradually. Use twice a week for the first 2 weeks, every other day for the next 2 weeks, then every day. If you are new to Crystal Retinal, we recommend starting on Crystal Retinal 6, and working your way up to Crystal Retinal 10. After cleansing in the evening, blend a small amount over face and neck before applying your regular Medik8 hydrator. Always wear sunscreen during use. Consult your GP if breastfeeding or pregnant.
To get the most from this high-strength vitamin A serum, introduce an antioxidant serum such as Medik8 CE-Thione into your morning regime. This will protect renewed skin cells from future damage at the hands of UV rays and pollution.
After applying Crystal Retinal 6 in the evening, massage a healthy amount of Medik8 Hydr8 Night and Hydr8 Night Eye around the face and eye contours to elevate hydration and boost overall anti-ageing results.
