TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol
When it comes to fighting the advanced signs of ageing, retinol is considered a superhero.
That's why TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol is one powerhouse skin care product. In addition to fighting the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, retinol is known to encourage cell turnover and renewal, promote the production of collagen and help increase elasticity. And because the retinol is encapsulated, it’s protected against degradation from air and light which helps preserve its stability and maximum efficacy. Encapsulation also provides a more controlled release to help minimise potential irritation. But beyond the impressive benefits of retinol, this ultrahydrating cream is enriched with four highly effective botanicals. One botanical helps minimise the activity of enzymes which contribute to the formation of dark spots* which can make skin tone look uneven. Two other botanicals help minimise a skin-damaging process called glycation* which can impair collagen function. And yet another helps increase the “water channels” within skin* that decline with age, helping replenish precious moisture.
In fact, when skin moisture levels were measured after applying TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol, testing showed that skin hydration was not only immediately more than tripled, but also was still significantly higher after 12 hours. Add all of those benefits to those of the TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Complex* – an advanced combination of ingredients that help provide volume and lift while helping to protect skin integrity – and your skin has never had it so good.

How It Works
TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol contains ingredients that:
- Help accelerate cell turnover to reveal radiant-looking skin.* As skin ages, cellular function slows, allowing layers of older, sun-damaged cells to accumulate and remain on the skin’s surface. This not only can make skin look dull and lifeless, it also can make pores look larger. TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol is formulated to give this process a boost so that fresher, more youthful cells can rise to the surface.* Ingredient: Encapsulated Retinol
- Help protect skin integrity.* The skin dermal matrix contains many proteins – two of them are collagen, which helps support skin, and the second one is elastin, which helps provide skin elasticity. Retinol is known to influence the synthesis of collagen and elastin and also promote cellular communication. These benefits help the skin matrix live up to its “youthful” potential with enhanced integrity and strength that can reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. This potent and powerful night cream contains retinol that is known to enhance the production of the structural skin proteins that are critical to minimizing the advanced signs of ageing.* Ingredient: Encapsulated Retinol
- Help reduce glycation and the formation of A.G.E.s.** Glycation is a chemical reaction that can intensify intrinsic ageing. Simply put, during this process, a sugar molecule attaches itself to a skin protein, like collagen or elastin, and forms a glycated protein called A.G.E., which stands for Advanced-Glycation End product. This impacts the ability of structural proteins to function normally, causing significant damage to the skin’s support system. Over time, these vital proteins become rigid, brittle and less responsive, and can lead to the sagging, skin crepiness and more pronounced wrinkling that is associated with advanced skin ageing. These molecules are particularly destructive since they not only stiffen existing skin proteins but also create an environment that slows the synthesis of new collagen, compromising the integrity and regeneration of the skin. While this process starts out slow when skin is younger, it is known to speed up the older we get. TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol is formulated with two powerful botanicals shown to minimize glycation and A.G.E .formation.** Ingredients: Pomegranate and Cinnamon Bark Extracts
- Help replenish vital hydration.** Moisturization plays a crucial role in skin health, and for skin to stay healthy, water must be able to move within the skin. That’s where aquaporins come in. Aquaporins are skin proteins that create “channels” which help water travel to where it’s needed the most, helping skin hydration. And a type of these proteins – called AQP3 – transports not only water but glycerol, which has moisture-binding properties. Glycerol in skin also is critical because it is known to help strengthen the skin barrier and prevent moisture loss through evaporation. (Think of it as “water-proofing” for your skin.) AQP3 channels in the skin are negatively impacted by age and cumulative exposure to sun and other elements, and this is believed to contribute to the dryness associated with older skin. TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol is formulated with a marine botanical that has been shown to increase AQP3 levels.** Ingredient: Codium Tomentosum Extract (marine botanical)
- Help minimize the activity of pigment-producing enzymes.** When skin is exposed to UV light, oxidative damage occurs, which triggers a chain reaction. During this complex series of events, the pigment-producing enzyme called tyrosinase converts an amino acid into melanin, which ultimately travels to the skin’s surface. This process can lead to visible uneven skin tone. TimeWise Repair™ Volu-Firm™ Night Treatment With Retinol is formulated with a botanical extract that minimizes the activity of tyrosinase,** the enzyme critical for the synthesis of melanin. Ingredient: Licorice Extract
When used with the complete TimeWise Repair™ regimen, you can expect to see optimum age-fighting results.
