About The Product

Powered by Retinaldehyde - an encapsulated and ultra stabilized bio-active form of Vitamin A that gradually and effectively converts to Retinoic Acid in the skin. Retinaldehyde is far less irritating compared to other Retinoids and is known to have strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory andantibacterial properties.

Collapsible content

What is retinal night cream used for?

Retinal Night Cream is a multifunctional and deeply regenerating treatment cream targeting the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. The cream is also beneficial for problematic skin types, such as those with blemishes and breakouts, as well as those with loss of firmness and elasticity.

Can you use Retinal night cream during the day?

No, Retinal night cream is a reparative formulation to be used when the skin is in repair mode while you sleep. Retinaldehyde may increase the skin’s UV sensitivity which can accelerate damage, rather than repair, if applied in the morning.

Should you wash off Retinal night cream in the morning?

Yes. Cleansing your skin in the morning will remove any residue from the cream to prepare your skin for your AM routine.

Is night cream a moisturizer?

While night cream contains moisturizing ingredients, it is more than just a moisturizer. Retinal Night Cream is formulated to work with the skin's natural repair process to stimulate cellular regeneration, targets all signs of aging, and acne-prone skin. For optimal results, follow Retinal Night Cream with a moisturizer or face oil.

How often should I use a retinal night cream?

Once your skin has adjusted during the introductory period, apply Retinal Night Cream every night for maximum results. Remember to phase in the use of Retinal Night Cream gradually to avoid skin irritation.

Can I use Retinal night cream after moisturizer?

No, Retinal Night Cream should be applied before moisturizer. The moisturizer is used to lock in the benefits of the night cream and provide additional hydration to the skin.

Can I use Retinal night cream after serum?

Yes, Retinal night cream can be used after serum. Apply the serum first, allow it to absorb into the skin, and then apply the night cream over the top.

Can I use Retinal night cream during pregnancy?

No, Retinal Night Cream is not suitable during pregnancy.

Does Retinal night cream help with acne?

Yes, Retinal night cream can help with acne. Retinal night cream, for example, can help regulate sebum production, unclog pores, and promote cell turnover to minimize breakouts.

Does Retinal night cream help with wrinkles?

Yes, Retinal night cream can help with wrinkles. Retinal night cream, in particular, is a powerful tool to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production, which improves skin elasticity and firmness.

Can you use retinal night cream every night?

Introduce retinal night cream gradually to avoid skin irritation. Start by using it twice a week and gradually increase the frequency until you can use it every night.

What are the benefits of Retinal night cream?

Retinal Night cream is designed to nourish and rejuvenate your skin while you sleep. This formulation provides hydration and rejuvenation to the skin, while also promoting skin cell regeneration. Retinal Night cream helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and prevent breakouts.

What is the difference between day and night cream?

Day creams provide hydration, moisture, and sun protection with a lighter texture. Night creams have a heavier texture and are rich in active ingredients like retinol and acids to deeply moisturize and promote skin cell turnover while you sleep.

Retinal cream

African Botanics products are outstanding! Each one I have tried has surpassed my expectations and the retinal cream is no exception! My aging, sensitive skin is not bothered by it at all!

Game changer!

I have been using some of this line daily for about 6 months and loving each new product that I try. Recently, I added in the Retinal Night Cream and am coming to the end of my first bottle. Don't worry - I have already ordered my replacement because I have decided I can never again go a night without this treatment! It has COMPLETELY CHANGED MY SKIN. I am 39, with hormonal acne and some fine lines developing. I saw a family member this weekend who could not stop commenting on the clarity and even tone of my skin. Since using daily for about a month I have seen a dramatic change in my pore size, overall clarity & tone, have not had a single breakout, and am now experiencing line reduction, firmer skin, and better skin cushion/padding. Thank you so much for creating this line and product. ✨
