The esmi Resurfacing R0.25% retinol serum is the perfect introduction to the esmi retinol serum range especially if you're new to retinol or have sensitive skin as it is formulated with 100% encapsulated retinol to increase skin cell turnover and stimulate collagen synthesis for a fresher, firmer complexion.
Superior to standard retinol, encapsulated retinol has enhanced bioavailability and stability. The retinol is enclosed in tiny capsules which allows the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin layer before being activated. This is ideal for sensitive skin as it maximises skin benefits while minimising surface dryness, irritation, and flaking associated with a traditional retinol serum.
This gentle retinol serum teams additional antioxidant-powdered ingredients with retinol to further condition, protect and strengthen the skin.
Tackling signs of ageing, carrot seed oil is a skin revitalising combination of vitamin C to stimulate collagen, vitamin A for regeneration, and the moisturising benefits of vitamin E.

The Range of Skin Treat Retinol Serums

- Level 1: 0.25%.
- Level 2: 0.5%
- Level 3: 0.75%
