Skincare School: Ingredients Explained - Vitamin A


Vitamins - we all know we’re supposed to get our share of them. But it can be an absolute conundrum knowing where they come from, what they do and ensuring we get enough to maintain our body’s optimum health.

Vitamins should make up a crucial part of our diets, and also our skincare routines!
When formulating all of our products, we always ensure they contain the most powerful botanicals and ingredients that are brimming with vitamins. So your skin doesn’t just look great - it feels great too! 

In this post, we’re going to start at the top of the vitamin alphabet with, of course vitamin A. 

What is Vitamin A and Why Does Our Skin Need It?

Well, vitamin A is a fantastic product for your skin, helping to enhance the rate of skin repair. It also helps your body to maintain healthy vision and immune function.
Vitamin A comes in many forms, and it’s important to know what kind of vitamin A you’re applying to your skin. Some forms of synthetic vitamin A can be harsh on skin and cause increased sensitivity. 

That’s why all of the forms of vitamin A that we use, such as bio-retinol, are naturally derived and safe for even the most sensitive skin. 

Which of my favourite Tropic products contain Vitamin A?  

Our bio-retinol is a safe, stable and effective plant-based form of Vitamin A that’s derived from the blackjack flower. It can be found in our Skin Dream and Eye Dream. It works to boost collagen production while you sleep, working within the deeper layers of the skin to combat hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles by boosting cell growth and leaves skin soft, plump and revitalised. 

In fact, thanks to the fantastic results of our bio-retinol, Skin Dream achieved one of the very highest scores ever in 25 years of Beauty Bible testing with the judges declaring “We’re adding this into our own regimes IMMEDIATELY!” 
Vitamin A is also abundant in ingredients such as Rosehip oil, which we use in our Elixir. It Helps to assist with cell regeneration and boost levels of collagen and elastin, helping to leave skin feeling deeply nourished.

Using these products as part of your daily skincare routine is sure to help keep you and your skin feeling full of life.
