What is Retinyl Retinoate?

Retinyl retinoate is a highly stable vitamin A derivative with higher activity and visible light. People have studied the application of vitamin A in cosmetics for more than half a century. Because vitamin A derivatives (retinol, retinal, etc.) are sensitive to light, oxygen, temperature, and metal ions, they are prone to lose their activity. It is unstable, and it is easy to cause discomfort such as skin redness, itching, and tightness. Therefore, the application of vitamin A derivatives in cosmetics has been limited. The retinyl retinoate developed by Taian Green Industry Co., Ltd has 8 times the retinol activity, is non-irritating to the skin, and is safe to use. It can significantly reduce fine lines and lighten wrinkles; promote the renewal of the stratum corneum, making the stratum corneum stronger; protect the skin from UV damage, improve skin dryness and roughness caused by UV radiation; and inhibit tyrosinase activity. High stability, can be used during the day.



IC 50 retinol 25 μM, retinyl retinoate is 40 μM (60% higher than retinol), retinoic acid is a prescription drug, and it is forbidden for personal care (IC 50 is a certain concentration of a substance that induces 50% of apoptosis, Used to measure the ability of a substance to induce apoptosis. Higher values indicate less cytotoxicity).

Biological activity

Retinyl retinoate retains ring end groups and side alkenyl groups, and still has the biological activity of retinol and retinoic acid. In vivo tests show that the ability to promote skin regeneration is better than retinol and retinoic acid; it improves the optics of retinol Stability and chemical stability, while reducing the irritation of retinol and retinoic acid.

Retinyl Retinoate vs Retinol

Retinyl retinoate and Retinol can transform each other. From the effect on the skin, Retinol is better than Retinyl retinoate, but Retinol is extremely unstable and easily loses activity, the requirements for cosmetic formula and production conditions are relatively high, so in practical applications, it is limited by many factors and the application is not too extensive. Because Retinyl retinoate has good stability and can work in sunlight, and it has lower requirements on cosmetic formula and production conditions, it is more popular with cosmetic manufacturers, but it takes a long time to convert to retinoic acid, so it takes a long time to take effect.

Is Retinyl Retinoate safe?

Research shows that Retinyl retinoate is less irritating to the skin than Retinol and it is more skin friendly, so if your skin is intolerant to Retinol, you can choose Retinyl retinoate.


Speeds up the renewal of epidermal cells on the skin, making the skin more firm and shiny

Promote the dermis to accelerate collagen production and inhibit the destruction of collagen by MMP

Increase the content of mucopolysaccharides (such as hyaluronic acid, etc.) in the epidermal layer, and make the skin more water-retaining

Promote the metabolism of the stratum corneum and make it firmer

Applicable Products

Anti-aging products: increase collagen in the skin, prevent collagen from degrading too quickly, and compound it with hyaluronic acid and bio-composite polysaccharides. Improvement of fine lines can be observed within one week.

Whitening products: synergistic vitamin C inhibits tyrosinase, promotes metabolism and accelerates the disappearance of melanin.

Sunscreen products: suppress the increase of MMP activity caused by ultraviolet rays, protect elastin and collagen, fill the fine lines caused by ultraviolet rays, and diminish wrinkles.

Repair products: promote the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the body, enhance the activity of keratinocytes, increase the thickness of the epidermal layer, and make the epidermal layer stronger.




Store in a dry, well-ventilated place away from direct sunlight.
