Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative, used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while decreasing oncoming or already existing signs of aging. Skincare LdeL Cosmetics® RETINOL has used Vitamin A, along with vitamins C + E and additional healthy ingredients, to create the best formulas for all skin types with one main goal – to fight aging.
Why Skincare LdeL Cosmetics® RETINOL skincare?
Established in 1987, we began with a mission to feature the newly discovered anti-aging ingredient RETINOL (Vitamin A), introduced to minimize the signs of aging. We formulated with our chemists, and began with our Night Cream, Day Cream (SPF 20), and Eye Gel to make an introduction into the new, “over-the-counter” topical skincare market for Retinol. Since initiation, we have expanded our line to provide a complete regimen, along with a line RETINOL for Men and an Advanced Brightening line to decrease the appearance of dark spots and discolored or pigmented skin. All key products are made in USA.
How does RETINOL prevent signs of aging and reduce wrinkles?
Retinol rejuvenates and renews skin through gentle exfoliation. It increases collagen and elastin production, improving skin texture, thus diminishing wrinkles and fine lines. We recommend using Retinol products twice daily.
Can someone help me build a regimen?
Yes, we can. There are two options. You may go to the “build a regimen” page on our website, and look for the skin concerns you feel fit your skin needs, and discover our recommendations. If you want personal assistance, you may reach out to our customer service team at all times via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us Monday-Friday 8:30 am –5:30 pm EST at 1-800-873-6245 (US only) or 212-447-0036 (domestic and international).
When will I see results?
Use products twice daily, for best results. With consistent use, you will begin to see anti-aging results within 4-6 weeks, and further progression over a longer period of time.
When should I start using RETINOL?
The earlier the better. We suggest you should start working Retinol into your regimen gradually in your 20’s to prevent oncoming signs of aging. This way, you can slow the aging process and maintain collagen and elasticity production in the cells, keeping skin young and healthy.
Our Retinol Facial Serum is also quite effective in treating acne breakouts. After your skin becomes acclimated to the products, begin to build your Retinol regimen, adding more products into your daily routine. If you have more mature skin, you may begin gradually with a few products, and increase your Retinol routine after a few weeks.
Are any of the products tested on animals?
No. we do not use any ingredients in our formulations that were tested on animals.
Are the beads in the Eye Gel and Gel Cleanser environmentally safe?
Yes. All beads in our products burst upon application for an extra boost of Vitamin A. The Eye Gel beads will be applied under and around eye area. Smooth in and let beads burst and let absorb.
The beads in the gel cleanser will dissolve and do not clog any sink or disposables. Wash off the gel cleanser. Do not leave beads on face as treatment.
Does Retinol have a fragrance?
Yes. Our RETINOL products do have a signature fragrance. We put a light scent into our formulas to cover the smell of the natural vitamin scent, so the products are absolutely pleasant.
What is the difference between the Gel Cleanser and the Cream Cleanser?
The Gel Cleanser is formulated for normal to oily skin, with a foamy cleansing texture when rubbed onto face, and applied. The encapsulated microbeads burst upon application for an added boost of Vitamin A + E. This cleanser washes away daily impurities and deeply cleans the face, preparing for your nighttime skincare regimen.
The Cream Cleanser is formulated for normal to dry skin, with a creamy, lathering cleansing texture when rubber onto face, and applied. This thicker, rich cleanser washes away daily impurities while keeping skin soft and smooth in the process. Proceed with your daytime or nighttime regimen.
Can Men use the RETINOL line?
Yes. All men can use both the RETINOL for MEN products, while adding in products from the original RETINOL line. Our RETINOL line is unisex, so the choice is yours.
What is an I.U. (International Unit)?
An I.U. is a unit of measurement to represent the vitamin level and potency in the jar of an ingredient. It appears on our packaging to inform the Vitamin A level in that product. I.U.’s are commonly used in vitamin nutritional information.
Can I use the Skincare LdeL Cosmetics® RETINOL products in the sun?
We advise you do not use Retinol under elongated periods of sun exposure. However, it is fine to use with daily sun exposure, if you use Retinol Day Cream SPF 20 for daily sun protection.
Is RETINOL for all skin types? What if I have sensitive skin?
Skincare LdeL Cosmetics® takes sensitive skin into consideration when formulating. Our products are safe for all skin types, even the most sensitive, but we advise you slowly build a regimen to ensure positive reaction to all products. Our entire regimen is safe to use together, providing a steady and effective level of Vitamin A to the skin “day and night,” helping minimize fine lines and wrinkles and other targeted benefits, which may vary between products (i.e. eye gel focus on under-eye puffiness + dark circles).
No, we love animals and do not participate or
endorse any animal testing.
I am Pregenent/Nursing, what is the best skincare regimen for me?
For best advice, we strongly recommend you
discuss safe skincare options for you and your baby with your medical
professional.Avoiding the sun and using UV SPF (30) protection every day is
especially important during pregnancy and nursing, as the hormones released
during this time can greatly increase pigmentation on your skin, causing
melasma or "the mask of pregnancy." You should also avoid using any
products containing acids (AHA/BHA lactic, glycolic, salicylic, etc.). If
breakouts or other skin conditions are a problem during pregnancy, please
consult with your doctor regarding prescription topicals or medications.

Why do skindeva use sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate?
In recent studies, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (SAP) has been
proven to be the preferred form of Vitamin C. Compared to L-Ascorbic Acid
(LAA), SAP is much more stable and shown to have more bioavailability. LAA
requires harsh chemicals and a loss in potency due to its unstable
characteristics. Our serum is formulated with SAP to ensure an effective and
stable product without harsh chemicals and unwanted side effects.
