Verso’s mission is to help improve the health of all skin types with an easy-to-use, effective and unharmful product verified by science. Our unique Vitamin A complex Retinol 8 is the outcome of that goal. Retinol 8 has a unique ability to reinforce the communicative properties of the skin cells. It is eight times as effective as traditional retinol and reduces the risk of irritated skin by fifty percent. Think of Retinol 8 as a gym instructor who conditions tired skin cells and helps the skin getting into great shape.
WHAT IS RETINOL?
Retinol is the term for a Vitamin A derivative used in cosmetics. It is considered the golden standard in skincare. What makes retinol remarkable is its ability to reprogram skin cells into behaving like baby cells sprung fresh from the dermis layer of the skin.
WHAT IS RETINOL 8 AND WHAT SETS IT APART FROM TRADITIONAL RETINOL?
Retinol 8 is the Verso proprietary Vitamin A complex. It is eight times as effective as traditional Retinol yet half as irritative.
PRODUCTS THAT INCLUDE RETINOL 8
You will find Retinol 8 in many of our products. The dosage differs depending on product type and what the product targets. The following Verso products contain Retinol 8: Day Cream, Daily Facial Fluid, Night Cream, Super Facial Serum, Super Eye Serum, Dark Spot Fix, Blemish Fix, Super Facial Oil, Intense Facial Mask, Reviving Eye Mask, Lip Serum and Hand Serum.
HOW IT WORKS
Retinol 8 starts the process of rejuvenating the skin by communicating with and stimulating the skin cells. The cell turnover speeds up, and the collagen production increases. As a result, dead skin cells are sloughed off more quickly from the outer skin layer. This action reduces fine lines and pigmentation spots on the outer layer of the skin while reinforcing and plumping up the lower layer. You will start to notice results after 12 weeks of consistent use. Some may see results after 4 weeks. The rejuvenation effect will increase with prolonged use.
HOW TO USE RETINOL 8
Retinol 8, the Vitamin A complex used in Verso products, is eight times as efficient as traditional retinol and half as irritative - and thus more gentle to the skin. Due to its potency, Retinol 8 is very effective in low concentrations. Unlike most traditional retinol products, Retinol 8 is therefore not limited to night time treatment only, but can also be used during the day.
Retinol 8 is a Vitamin A derivative that turbocharges the benefits of traditional Retinol without causing discomfort.
