Lubricating vitamin A works brilliantly in the fight against wrinkles. Now there are delicate skins that unfortunately do not tolerate these products very well. Good news: there are now new, milder forms on the market. I tested the Uncover Vitamin A Serum from Dr. Jetske Ultee, which contains the new vitamin A formula Hydroxypinacolone retinoate. Do you enjoy reading?
If there is one ingredient that can work wonders for your skin, it is vitamin A (aka Retinoids). It is common to use this vitamin on your skin in the form of Vitamin A-Acid (only available with a prescription) or Retinol (without a prescription). It stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, which retains moisture in the skin, leaving it plumper. Vitamin A also ensures the production of elastin and collagen. These 2 fabrics are ideal for the resilience and firmness of your skin. And these effects are all scientifically proven. By the way, if you want to know more about this wrinkle remover, read my previous special about the effect of Vitamin A.
Cons of Vitamin A Acid and Retinol
Now it’s not just “Hosanna” around the vitamin A acid tubes. First of all, Vitamin A Acid is only available by prescription as it is a medicated cream. Furthermore, it does not really spread well and it often contains substances (such as alcohol) that are not really beneficial for your skin. Your skin can also react violently to it. Retinol is available without a prescription, but not everyone reacts equally well to this. In addition, Retinol is particularly unstable when air or light is added. Furthermore, retinol is fat-soluble, which means that it cannot penetrate the deeper layers of the skin well. There are solutions for this, but then the manufacturer must know what he is doing. Finally, retinol has to be converted to an active form by the skin before it can do its good job.
The new generation of vitamin A
Fortunately, the development of care products with vitamin A is not standing still. Virtually every serious skin care manufacturer is aware of the magical effect of Vitamin A. A lot of research is therefore being done, leading to new formulas appearing on the market. One is hydroxypinacolone retinoate, which is contained in Dr. Jetske Ultee is sitting.
What Does Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate Do?
Hydroxypinacolone retinoate is therefore a new form of Vitamin A. Like the traditional forms of Vitamin A, it ensures that the skin becomes firmer. But unlike Retinol, this substance does not need to be converted first. Hydroxypinacolone retinoate can bind directly in the cell, making it more effective. Furthermore, Hydroxypinacolone retinoate is stable, so you don’t have to worry about it losing its effect as with poorly packaged and formulated Retinol. In addition, it is also milder for your skin than Retinol and vitamin A acid. In short, a promising substance!
Uncover Vitamin A Serum Dr. Jetske Ultee
Jetske Ultee is an established name when it comes to good skin care. She has developed her own line and regularly writes interesting articles about skincare. See, for example, this article about her vision on skin care. Recently, a vitamin A serum in the line of Dr. Jetske Ultee. This has Hydroxypinacolone retinoate as its main active ingredient. It also contains vegetable oils with, among other things, vitamin E, Omega 3 and 6. It comes in a narrow, airtight bottle with a pump system. I do not find this pump ideal to use. It is difficult to dose and the closure is not optimal in my opinion. Anyway, the packaging does guarantee airtightness and that is of course worth a lot.
My Experience with the Uncover Vitamin A Serum Dr. Jetske Ultee
Vitamin A is the “holy grale” in facial care. I was therefore eager to start with this new star at the front. Especially because I can sometimes react violently to Retinol. But I’ve been using the Uncover Vitamin A Serum for about 2 months now and it works just fine. I apply this oily substance to cleansed skin 2 times a week in the evening and it responds well to it. It causes less irritation than retinol, but still has a similar effect in my opinion. Hydroxypinacolone retinoate may even have a better effect, because I see beautiful, fuller skin in the mirror. In short, I am excited. So enthusiastic, in fact, that this product has a permanent place on the sink of this anti-aging addict!
