esmi Encapsulated Retinol 0.25% Level 1


Resurface and refresh skin to address multiple signs of ageing with high-potency 100% encapsulated retinol serum for superior skin revitalisation that is gentle on the skin.

Retinol boosts collagen and regenerates skin improving fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone while extra vitamin support protects, conditions and helps regulate oil. Begin with this Level 1 gentle retinol serum and then build to higher concentrations.

The range comes in the following variations: 0.25%, 0.5%, 0.75% and 1.0%. This allows you to start at a lower concentration and increase your retinol % step by step when your skin is ready.

- Level 1: 0.25%.
- Level 2: 0.5%
- Level 3: 0.75%
- Level 4: 1.0%

This simple system sets you up for the best retinol serum experience with maximum effectiveness and minimal irritation.

Increasing the concentration: If you can’t see any redness, peeling, or any other sign of irritation, your skin is ready for the next level. If you have sensitive skin, you may not be able to tolerate higher than Level 1 or 2.

Caution: Retinol is not a pregnancy or breastfeeding safe ingredient.


How to use

  • Every second night after cleansing, use the dropper to apply a pearl size amount of retinol serum onto skin after cleansing.
  • Avoid the corners of your mouth, eyes, and nose (if your nose is sensitive)
  • Allow to absorb and follow with a moisturising oil.

Retinol makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight so it is crucial to use SPF30 sunscreen each morning to protect your skin from photodamage.
