Garden of Wisdom

RetiStar Retinol Serum


Suitable for Vegetarians


Garden of Wisdom RetiStar Retinol Serum is a highly effective and gentle retinol that softens fine lines and wrinkles, enhances collagen and elastin production, combats acne, helps improve pore size and may reduce the appearance of pigmentation.

This powerful anti-ageing and protective serum contains 1% RetiSTAR™ Stabilized Retinol, which gently resurfaces the skin.

Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, works to enhance cell turnover, both on the skin surface and in the dermal layer. As the skin regenerates itself, the epidermis and dermis grow thicker; the skin becomes more elastic, reducing wrinkles and lines in their number, area, length and width.

Conventional retinol creams and serums cause skin sensitivities. With lower concentrations, skin sensitivity is not an issue. However, the results are not as dramatic. Garden of Wisdom's Retinol Serum delivers high strength retinol in a liposome base for a more targeted delivery which dramatically improves the visible signs of ageing with minimal irritation. 

All Garden of Wisdom products are cruelty free, suitable for vegetarians and free from Alcohol and Silicones. Serum bottles are made of PET and are 100% recyclable. A pH 4.5+.

Apply a sufficient amount of pure retinol serum to your face after cleansing and after any water-based serums in the evening. Although RetiStar can be used every evening from the first day, those with hypersensitive skin should use it twice a week for the first two weeks, gradually increasing usage. Be sure to apply sunscreen each morning when using any retinol serum. Build your complete Garden Of Wisdom skincare regimen here.

Do not use on irritated skin and discontinue if irritation occurs. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse with warm water. If using in the day follow with an SPF. Do not use during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding.
