Encapsulated Retinol 0.5% Cream


What Makes Our Encapsulated Retinol 0.5% Cream the Best Choice?

Healthier and More Youthful Skin

To look your absolute best, retinol is an essential addition to your skincare routine. This topical agent boosts collagen production and minimizes the signs of aging, giving you the gift of healthier and younger-looking skin. But did you know there's a more powerful version of it? Encapsulated retinol is more effective and tolerable than traditional retinol.

Enhanced Delivery

We use encapsulated retinol in our formulation for better absorption, enhanced delivery, and high efficacy. These protected molecules are more stabilized, and they get activated only after penetrating deep into the skin. Encapsulation also improves tolerance for sensitive skin types.

Suitable for All Skin Types

Encapsulated retinol works well on all skin types. It's more tolerable than regular retinol, so whether you have oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, you can use this product without worry.

Naturally Derived Ingredients

Enjoy the benefits of clean skincare. We only use naturally derived ingredients in our product, such as Vitamin A (Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate), Jojoba seed oil, squalane, safflower seed oil, glycerine, tocopherol, and hyaluronic acid.

I have used this a few times. It applies beautifully to my skin and has not irritated it once. My blemishes looked better the next morning and my skin looked brighter overall. Highly recommend!

Encapsulated Retinol 0.5% Cream Product Information

Key Ingredients

Vitamin A (Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate)
Retinol, or vitamin A, is a powerful antioxidant that supports fresh and revitalized skin. It is highly regarded for its impact on the visible effects of photoaging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and lost elasticity.

Jojoba Seed Oil
Jojoba seed oil is derived from a perennial shrub native to the Southwestern United States and parts of Mexico. It is effective as a lightweight emollient.

Squalane is a lipid known for its ability to enhance the skin's natural protective barrier. It replenishes hydration for optimal moisture levels and protects against transepidermal water loss.

Safflower Seed Oil (Carthamus Tinctorious Seed Oil)
Safflower has been cultivated for centuries by numerous different cultures. Its oil is rich in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids that nourish, moisturize and provide antioxidant benefits to the skin.

Glycerin is known for its ability to attract water to the skin to promote hydration.

Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid)
Hyaluronic acid is capable of retaining up to 1,000x its weight in water, making it the ultimate moisturizing ingredient. Sodium hyaluronate is a pure form of water-soluble hyaluronic acid. It helps lock hydration into the skin and protects against transepidermal water loss.

Tocopherol is an oil that helps to promote moisture balance and protect against transepidermal water loss.

Usage Recommendations

Apply a pea-sized amount to your skin before bedtime. For best results, apply after cleanser, toner, and any serums you may use.

Usage Frequency
Product should only be used before bed. Limit initial use to once or twice per week, gradually increasing usage as tolerated.

Sun Exposure Warning
Retinol usage will increase your sensitivity to the sun. Please remember to wear a sunscreen.

Joieuse Skincare Testimonials

My Skin Has Never Felt Better

Such an easy shopping experience and I appreciate how quickly I received my new products. Now that I've used the cleanser and serum for a few weeks, I love how good they make my skin feel!

I Love Your Products

I used a full regimen today -- cleanser, toner, and the multi-peptide serum. It's now nearly 7 pm and my skin feels like it's rolled backwards to a younger age. I think my skin is softer, less craggy and the lines may be disappearing.

One of the First

I was one of the first to follow this skincare‘s Instagram, as I was reluctant at first due to the product being new, but I have since made several purchases and have nothing but positive things to say!! The customer service has been awesome, shipping is super fast and the products are beautifully packaged (not too mention they’re cruelty free & seem too work)!!
