Garden of Wisdom


Suitable for Vegetarians


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

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 range of 3.5 - 3.7

How to use: 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.
