As every skincare lover knows, retinol is prized for its ability to address signs of aging — but this popular ingredient can cause harsh side effects for some, from redness to dryness to sensitivity. We wanted to create something better — a product that offers the performance benefits of retinol but treats your skin with kindness. That is where the AGELESS Phyto-Retinol* Collection comes in.

This clean, vegan collection was created to help everyone look as ageless as they feel, without the unwanted side effects retinol can cause. The difference is in our key ingredient. Sustainably sourced from the Picão Preto plant, Phyto-Retinol is a potent botanical extract that is proven to deliver the same skin-transforming results as retinol, without the irritation. Each product is also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to replenish moisture instantly and throughout the day.

“At bareMinerals, we formulate with carefully chosen naturals that are proven to perform,” says Gail Boye, bareMinerals Senior Vice President of Product Development. “When we saw the research on Picão Preto, we knew it was a game-changing ingredient. Now we can offer a natural alternative to retinol that truly delivers on its skin-improving promises.”

In just one week, the AGELESS Phyto-Retinol* Collection — which includes a night concentrate, face cream, neck cream and eye cream — visibly reduces fine lines, evens out skin tone and smooths skin texture.

Whether you’re just starting your skincare journey, or you want to reinvent your routine with clean products that treat your skin kindly, the AGELESS Phyto-Retinol* Collection will help you feel good about the skin you’re in. After all, you’re much more than just a number. You’re AGELESS.

What is Retinol?
Retinoids is the umbrella term for derivatives of Vitamin A that come in several forms: including prescription-strength retinoic acid and over-the-counter retinol.

Why use it?
Work by binding with the retinoic acid receptors in the DNA of skin cells, encouraging faster turnover and helps to prevent he breakdown of collagen in the skin. It’s the best studied and most evidence backed topical medication for reducing the visible signs of aging.

Traditional RETINOIC ACID
Prescription strength version of Vitamin A that delivers the most active form of retinoic acid. Can often lead to dryness, redness, peeling and irritation. 

Traditional RETINOL
The over-the-counter version which works more gradually. It has a different molecular structure and has to be converted by skin cells into retinoic acid.

Plant-Base RETINOL
A plant-based alternative active ingredient to traditional retinoids. Mimics the anti-aging benefits of retinol without the harsh side effects. It’s nature’s answer to retinol!

The Phyto-Retinol in Ageless mimics the action of retinol, promoting cell turnover and supporting collagen. The result is a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for smoother, younger looking skin.

It also works to minimize the appearance of photodamage or sun damaging and hyperpigmentation by evening the skin’s tone.
