A silky, light emulsion containing a medium-strength amount of retinal to help against all signs of aging, while being gentle on the skin.

Retinal is the “big brother” molecule of the better known anti-aging superstar, retinol. While retinol needs two metabolic conversion steps to reach the active form, retinoic acid (aka tretinoin), retinal is the direct precursor only one conversion step away from the active form the skin cells understand. It is estimated that retinal can convert more than 10x faster to retinoic acid than retinol, making retinal an outstandingly effective member of the retinoid family (vitamin A family).

6-6.5 pH

0.05% Retinal

+ Allantoin Biosaccharide Gum-1

Once converted, retinal helps the skin cells to produce more collagen and other structural elements, making the skin more youthful, firm and elastic. It also speeds up the renewal process of the upper skin layers making it smoother and more even. A-Game is a smart-aging must-have, but it is also useful as an adjacent product for fading pigmention, as well as helping acne-prone skin.

In terms of strength and knowledge, we would compare our 0.05% retinal serum to a mid-strength retinol product (typically in the 0.2-0.5% range), but with less irritation potential and possibly quicker results.

Usage
Apply a pea sized amount to the face in the PM. In your evening routine, apply liquid and gel-type products first (for example a toner, our exfoliants or our other serums such as HA 5 or B-Bomb), then A-Game. Follow with a moisturizer. Wear a sunscreen of SPF 15 or greater in the morning.

If your skin is sensitive, start using A-Game every other day and if well-tolerated, move up to every evening in two weeks. You can try using A-Game around the eye area, but pay attention not to rub it into your eyes.

Do not use if pregnant. Topical use of retinoids during breastfeeding is considered low risk, however, please consult your physician first.

Good to know: A-Game has a bright yellow color due to the retinal in it. Based on our experience, it dissipates on the skin and does not leave a yellow tint on surfaces.
