It is the best cosmetic active ingredient known to science and the most appreciated by beauty professionals. This is supported by many scientific studies from independent laboratories and universities.
If you do not have very sensitive skin, this is the best anti-aging active ingredient you can use.

What is the recommended concentration of Retinol?
Retinol is effective in minimum concentrations of 0.01%.
The concentrations used in Lesielle are 0.3% and 2%.
How to use Retinol?
· Day and night / SPF: During the day, use in combination with a base that includes sun protection or apply a photoprotector of your choice depending on the needs of your skin.
* When not in use, store inside the device, in its box or in a dark place.
Is Retinol recommended for sensitive skin?
Vitamin A is one of the most powerful actives available, but it can irritate some skin.
If you want to include it in your skincare routine, start by using the 0.3% concentration. If you notice that your skin reddens with use, space out it to help your skin get used to it. Little by little, you will be able to reduce the time between uses (once a week, once a day...).
If your skin continues to be irritated (no matter how often you use it), we advise you to switch to a softer Antiaging active such as Vitamin B3 or Peptides.
What does Retinol synergize with?
Retinol works well in synergy with Vitamin E, as they mutually enhance each other's Antioxidant power.
· "Retinol cannot be mixed with AHA and BHA exfoliating agents".
False. Many studies defend the use of these two ingredients together because of their great efficacy.
· "You can't use Retinol during the day".
False. You can use it during the day, but always with sun protection if you are going to be exposed to the sun, since Retinol produces a sensitizing effect under it.
· "You can't mix Retinol and Vitamin C".
False. Yes, together they make a perfect team: Vitamin C renews the natural colour and removes spots, and Retinol regenerates and restores.
Where is Retinol found?
Although at Lesielle we use a naturally sourced Retinol, there are several sources where it can be found:
Vegetable origin (such as provitamin A): sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, apricots or mangoes.
Animal origin: liver, liver oil, milk, butter and eggs.
