Medik8 announces a skincare first

For the first time in a skincare formulation, Medik8 has combined two molecules – crystal-stabalised retinaldehyde and polymer-encapsulated retinyl retinoate – to deliver a vitamin A complex that is eight times stronger than retinol and 11 times faster acting. This ground-breaking blend forms the basis of Medik8’s r-Retinoate Intense, a moisturising night cream that promises to rejuvenate skin during sleep and leave it looking revitalised and brighter over time.

A cocktail of ceramides, which help to repair the skin’s protective barrier, and a drone-targeted copper peptide, which stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, are also included to help increase the firmness of the skin and leave fine lines and wrinkles visibly smoothed.
