How Our Retinol 0.5 is Different

A concentrated retinol formula, FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 contains 0.5% microencapsulated retinol in a lightweight gel formula that is perfect for use together with your other favorite moisturizers. Most retinoid creams are thicker, taking up to 30 minutes to absorb into the skin. Ours feels like it absorbs in under a second, so you don't have to wait before applying other moisturizers.

Our formula is designed to optimize the retinol activation process within the skin. Retinol must be converted to isotretinoin by enzymes called retinyl ester hydrolases in order to become active within the skin. Our formulation is designed to increase the efficiency of this process with an optimized delivery system and conditions.

Our retinol is also microencapsulated, targeting retinoid receptors in the skin for a full eight hours. This makes FutureDerm Time-Release Retinol 0.5 ideal for nighttime use.

Even after only a month of use I've already noticed results with this product. I had a little bit of peeling that only lasted a few days and am noticing improved texture and all-over tone. This will also help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.


I'm only using it once a day in the evening before I apply my moisturizer. I'm in love with the fact that this is a product with retinol that I can use daily without any irritation to my skin. It's also helping with a bit of markings leftover from acne. This product will not leave any residue and feels light while applying, soaking in quickly.
