Retinol-Vitamin A family
Retinol is a retinoid that stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. The produced collagen minimizes fine lines, large pores & wrinkles, and helps smoothen the skin.
Being from the retinoids family, the benefits of Retinol also include the anti-aging properties and antioxidant protection.
Scientific studies confirmed the beneficial results of retinoids in photoaging & in repairing and preventing skin aging.

Licorice extract has a whitening effect by reducing the production of the enzyme responsible for pigmentation in the skin and this leads to a decrease in the production of dark spots and the removal of excess melanin. In addition to preventing pigment production, licorice extract works to lighten the skin through an additional mechanism as it also contains leuciritin that helps disperse and remove melanin (pigment) already present in the skin.
