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.
After just 4 weeks of using Crystal Retinal 6:
- 95% of users reported smoother skin texture*
- 75% felt that the appearance of fine lines is significantly reduced*
- 80% felt that their skin looked noticeably more youthful*
- 85% of users said that overall skin tone is improved and complexion is clarified*
Fine lines and wrinkles are visibly softened, uneven texture is smoothed and pigmentation is visibly reduced.*
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.

|How to use
Crystal Retinal 6 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. 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.
