DSM Personal Care Launches Retinol for Anti-aging Skin Care
Posted: October 23, 2013
DSM Personal Care is expanding its skin care portfolio with a vitamin A for anti-aging. The company, a long-standing producer of vitamins, used its experience to produce Retinol GS 50 (INCI: Retinol (and) Polysorbate 20), which isa ctive in the dermis and epidermis.
It boosts collagen production in the skin, stimulates keratinocyte proliferation and thickening in the epidermis and inhibits tyrosinase activity. It visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; increases skin firmness, tonicity and smoothness; and evens out dark spots and age spots. These skin benefits can be seen as early as four weeks after commencing use.
