Benefits of Vitamin A for your skin

WE LISTEN TO our clients carefully. They ask – and we do our best to deliver.

Our clients asked for a Vitamin A treatment system, and we delivered what we believe to be one of the most advanced, effective, active and results driven product ranges. The difference? There is no ‘downtime’ with dry, flaky skin, red patches and irritation. The Pelactiv Vitamin A Advanced Treatment System offers maximum results plus the advantage of brighter, firmer, healthier looking skin after only a couple of weeks of usage.

Lets look at the benefits of Vitamin A; Why Vitamin A?
Whether you get Vitamin A from your diet or in your skincare, the protective and nourishing properties of Vitamin A and the nutrients your body uses to make it, play a leading role in keeping skin healthy, firm and radiant.
Vitamin A as a topical skin ingredient is capable of reprogramming cellular function. It promotes normal keratinisation (the turnover of skin cells).
It is known to regulate cellular behavior and works by normalising skin functions, so therefore has the ability to correct skin conditions.
Retinol, accompanied by humectants Sodium PCA and Sodium Hyaluronate, provides the skin with protection from water loss.
Why Pelactiv?
Pelactiv have taken this treatment system to the next level by developing a unique Preparation Oil and Corrective Serum. The synergy of these two products not only delivers outstanding results, but ensures even sensitised skins are able to use it without harsh side effects.
Pelactiv have formulated this Advanced Treatment System with pure cosmetic Retinol and Vitamin A Palmitate. Why? The Retinol that has been used in Pelactiv products is non-encapsulated, therefore provides a better absorbtion through skin and Vitamin A Palmitate is the most stable form of Vitamin A.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Pelactiv product without combining the wonderful regenerative, healing and hydrating properties derived from our beautiful Australian native botanicals. This fusion of science and nature has ensured that Pelactiv continue to provide beautiful, technologically advanced products with a twist of natural goodness.

Vitamin A
Retinol is the cosmeceutical form of Vitamin A. It is the purest form of Vitamin A. It is used to slow the effects of ageing. Retinol helps to resurface and rejuvenate the skin, giving you glowing, vibrant skin that is clear and youthful.
When Retinol is applied to skin, it is converted into Retinoic Acid. Skin loves Retinoic Acid because it communicates with our cells.
Retinol’s molecular structure is very small, these tiny molecules have the ability to penetrate the epidermis and work to repair the dermis where collagen and elastin reside. Vitamin A in this form has the ability to improve the elasticity of the skin and smooth wrinkles and fine lines, reducing their appearance.
As we age, skin cells can gradually take on an altered shape. However, these same cells have receptor sites that will quickly accept Retinoic Acid. As the Retinoic Acid is absorbed, the cell begins to function normally and will resume cell generation that is normal.
Vitamin A Palmitate (Retinyl Palmitate) is the ester of Retinol and Palmitic Acid. It is used for its antioxidant properties. It promotes the enzyme activity in the skin. It thickens the epidermis and can regenerate skin prematurely that has been aged by UV-radiation. This product can also assist in increasing the skin’s elasticity and the reversal of photo-damage.

Note: Vitamin A is not suitable for women who are pregnant or lactating, we recommend you seek the advice of a health care professional.

Australian Native Plant Extracts
Alongside the active ingredient of Retinol, Pelactiv have stayed true to their philosophy of using a fusion of science and nature together to deliver the safest, fastest and most visible results. The synergy of these ingredients will ensure the maintenance of visibly healthy skin.
AHAs have a ‘pull’ action which works on the skin surface to exfoliate and brighten it, whereas Retinol has a ‘push’ action to renew cell growth deep in the basal layer

Lilly Pilly (Syzygium Luehmannii)
Lilly Pilly, or Syzygium Luehmannii, is a medium-sized coastal rainforest tree native to Australia. Indigenous Australians traditionally used Lilly Pilly for its excellent healing and anti-bacterial properties. Lilly Pilly extract is a powerful antioxidant, high in Vitamin C and fruit acid, helping maintain skin health and develop collagen.

Quandong (Santalum acuminatum)
Quandong is widely dispersed throughout the central deserts and southern areas of Australia. Due to its high Vitamin C content (even higher than oranges), the Quandong fruit was an essential food source for Indigenous Australians and was also used for its medicinal properties to treat skin sores, boils and aid in the effects of rheumatism. In particular, Quandong extract was well known for its anti-bacterial properties.
Contains active ingredients such as phenolic acids that behave like an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, and rutin to strengthen capillaries.

Phenolic Acids
These acids contain anti-microbial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

A strong antioxidant that can reduce the creation of free radicals. Works in synergy with Vitamin C, inhibiting Vitamin C to oxidise and become a free radical and intensifying the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C.
