Vitamin A derivative retinoids are the most researched and sought-after ingredients in the treatment of ageing skin.
They unclog pores, boost collagen to reduce fine lines, and speed cell turnover to even out discolouration and scarring, help clear acne and congestion, and generally smooth the skin.
In non-prescription form the most effective of these A derivatives is retinol, which is gradually converted into retinoic acid (the active ingredient in the prescription creams) once applied to the skin.
Skeyndor’s Pure Retinol anti-ageing facial program produces healthier, fresher and younger-looking skin after just one treatment, using concentrated levels of pure retinol and antioxidants.
Power Retinol Intensive Repairing Facial begins (after cleansing and toning, of course) with an active enzyme complex massaged into face and dcollet.

A concentrated retinol solution is then applied and meticulously infused deep into the cells with the Skeyndor Meso-Science technology.
A mask of amber extract and organic calendula oil is blended and massaged in and left for 15 minutes.
The Power Retinol Intensive Repairing Facial finishes with the Intensive Antioxidant Cream containing actives such as antioxidant pomegranate, omega fatty acids, vitamin C and co-enzyme Q10.
When clients see the extraordinary results – as this editor can personally attest – they are very likely to purchase the synergistic home care, which are recommended to maintain optimum results between facials.
Skeyndor’s Pure Retinol formulations, with powerful actives of bakuchiol (anti-bacterial and whitening) and soy extract (improves skin texture), ‘are transported and delivered deep within the cells for extraordinary results,’ says Luca Mora, CEO of Skeyndor in Australia. ‘They will not break down in the presence of sunlight, so there no photo-sensitivity issues and, no irritation.’
This new line-up from the iconic Spanish skincare brand – celebrating its 50th anniversary this year – is suitable for both mature and younger skins, targeting photo damage such as pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, acne-affected complexions, and thickened skin that refuses to shed.
It improves skin structure, reduces inflammation, inhibits collagen breakdown (the forerunner to wrinkles), stimulates collagen growth, fades dark spots and boosts radiance.
The home-care line includes:
- Intensive Repairing Cream
- Intensive Repairing Serum-in-Cream
- Intensive Repairing Emulsion
