Retinyl Palmitate is the combination of retinol (Vitamin A) and the fatty acid palmitic acid. Research has shown it to be an effective anti oxidant, particularly in protecting the skin against sun damage (that doesn’t mean you can forgo sun protection).
Because retinyl palmitate is converted into retinol and the active compound retinoic acid once it is absorbed by the skin after being topically applied, it is less irritating and gentler on the skin than retinol in its pure form. If you are prone to skin sensitivities, this form of retinol is the best option for you.
Benefits: Improves the appearance of the skin, lightens dark spots and plumps the skin. Retinyl palmitate is effective in boosting collagen production, which can help you look more youthful and radiant.
