Mode Of Action
A high number of studies on molecular and gene level, as well as on structural and functional level have elucidated the way how retinol works. Retinol inhibits MMPs, reduces collagen degradation and promotes its synthesis. It stimulates Ki-67 expression, increases epidermal proliferation and compacts the stratum corneum. It downregulates the tyrosinase activity and inhibits the melanosome transfer. Many studies with volunteers have demonstrated the retinol efficacy also in vivo.
