BasicLab Corrective Serum with Retinal 0.07%, Phytosphingosine and Carnosine 2.0 REDUCTION AND STIMULATION 15ml, designed for evening care of the skin, neck and décolleté, shows effective anti-wrinkle and anti-acne effects. The cosmetic thickens the skin, visibly rejuvenating it. The vitamin A derivative used in it has antibacterial properties that help reduce imperfections. Phytosphingosine, a natural ingredient derived from ceramides, reduces redness and prevents inflammation, alleviating potential side effects of the serum. Carnosine 2.0 firms the skin and makes it more supple, while reducing broad discomfort. The addition of 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid brightens the complexion, giving it a healthy tone.
SERUM ACTION REDUCTION AND STIMULATION:
- Our 0.07 agent! Retinal is the last compound in the conversion to retinoic acid (which cannot be used in cosmetic products). It is distinguished by its antibacterial properties, so it will be helpful in the care of acne-prone complexions, and because of its low irritant potential, it can be used without fear in the care of skin affected by rosacea. The ingredient effectively fights hyperpigmentation, has an anti-aging effect, reduces wrinkles, as well as improves skin elasticity and firmness.
- Vitamin C in the form of 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid, present in the antioxidant regenerating serum Brighten and Calm, acts as an anti-inflammatory and reduces redness, thus minimizing the side effects of the treatment, while brightening the complexion and positively affecting its overall appearance.
- Vitamin E (INCI: Tocopherol) together with coenzyme Q10 (INCI: Ubiquinone), a duo of powerful antioxidants, fight free radicals, soothe the skin or slow down the aging process.
- Ceramides NP and AP, as the so-called. intercellular cement, promote skin renewal, accelerating skin regeneration processes.
- Carnosine 2.0, is resistant to degradation, so it is much more effective than L-carnosine. The ingredient restores proper skin tone, prevents the effects of photoaging, lightens brown discoloration (PIH – Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation), but also generally improves skin tone.
- A free sphingoid amine found in the skin, phytosphingosine, a natural anti-inflammatory agent, improves the appearance of acne-prone skin and reduces redness and irritation.
- Phospholipids, which are carriers of retinal, stabilize it and reduce the risk of irritation.

We absolutely apply high SPF50+ sun protection for the day and avoid sun exposure. It is also important to remember that during retinal treatment, the skin requires increased hydration and regeneration.
The use of retinal is always started with a lower concentration, i.e. 0.07% – both carrying out the treatment for the first time and resuming it after a long break.
Retinal is introduced gradually, for the first 2 weeks using it every 4-5 evenings. Over time, the interval between applications is reduced by 1 day.
Apply the serum once a day, in evening care only, on cleansed and dry skin, avoiding the eye area.
At the beginning of the introduction of retinal into care, we apply it alone to observe the reaction of the skin. The target, approx. 30-40 minutes after applying retinal, you can apply a moisturizing and regenerating product, such as a serum with ceramides and/or a lipid cream for winter.
During the first weeks of retinal use, redness, dryness or irritation of the skin may be observed, as well as flaking – this is the result of the skin building up a tolerance to this active substance.
We switch to a higher concentration of retinol at the earliest when the skin tolerates well the use of a lower one at least 4-5 times a week.
Higher concentrations are introduced while building skin tolerance – first every 4 days, gradually increasing the frequency.
The use of retinal throughout the year is acceptable, but before any planned increased sun exposure, it should be discontinued completely for approx. 4 weeks earlier.
