Resurfacing Retinol Serum for Face
Our resurfacing retinol serums are developed with high-potency 100% encapsulated retinol serum for superior skin revitalisation that is gentle on the skin.
As skin ages skin cell turnover slows and collagen production is decreased, which in turn increases the chances of experiencing common skin concerns such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage and pigmentation. Incorporating retinol products into your skin regime will boost skin cell turnover and stimulate collagen production to aid in the smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles as well as fading of acne scars and pigmentation.
Our vegan retinol is formulated with a range of natural ingredients that work together to provide a fresher, firmer complexion, including:
100% Encapsulated Retinol
100% encapsulated retinol is what we consider the best retinol serum ingredient. Superior to standard retinol, encapsulated retinol has enhanced bioavailability and stability. The retinol is enclosed in tiny capsules which allows the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin layer before being activated. This is ideal for sensitive skin as it maximises skin benefits while minimising surface dryness, irritation, and flaking associated with a traditional retinol serum for skin.
Enriched with powerful antioxidants, tomato extract helps to prevent collagen deterioration as well as shield skin from UV and pollution damage. It also aids in oil regulation making it a great ally for oily, congested and acne-prone skin.
Carrot Seed Oil
Tackles the signs of ageing and revitalises the skin with a combination of vitamin C to stimulate collagen, vitamin A for regeneration and the moisturising benefits of vitamin E.
Packed with linoleic acid to fortify the skin barrier and encourage moisture retention. Vitamin E also helps protect skin against sun damage responsible for speeding up signs of ageing.

Intensity of the Retinol activity, i.e. the percentage of encapsulated retinol.
You will start seeing a change in your skin after about 2 weeks of using your R series. Very slight peeling may occur for the first week to 2 weeks.
Tretinoin can cause severe skin dryness, peeling and redness and can contain ingredients such as paragons etc.
We recommend you apply 2-3 drops of a Skin Treat oil after your Retinol by pressing it lightly over your skin. Always follow with an eye product such as the Eye Delight Eye balm.
Very sensitive skin may experience slight soreness in the first 2 weeks. Otherwise there should be no soreness when using the esmi R Series.
esmi has an encapsulated Retinol formulation meaning you get a more potent but stable delivery of Vitamin A.
Your Retinol is best stored away from direct sunlight and heat in a cool dry area.
Even though Retinoid/Retinols’ nature is to become less active over time and exposure to oxygen, your esmi R Series retinol is encapsulated meaning its preserved for longer. We recommend you use your esmi R Series within 6 months after opening.
It is best to avoid any additional retinol product when already applying and taking sun sensitising medications. Please consult with your doctor first.
