RetinA

A beauty therapist told me that the Retin A in Environ's products thins the skin. Is this true?

Hi Milly, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response.

Environ uses a vitamin A derivative (retinal palmitate) and not the ‘pure’ vitamin A (Tretinoin or retinoic acid) found in Retin A. Either way no evidence points that vitamin A or its derivatives thin the skin and studies have demonstrated an increased collagen production within the skin.
