Correctives RA Cream is a night cream that contains a retinoic acid ester, this is an active form of retinoid or vitamin A. The form of Vitamin A chosen has no skin irritating side effects. It is essential in the treatment of aged skin and skin with signs of photo-aging (sun-damaged).
As skin ages and is damaged by sun exposure, two very important changes take place. Skin in the epidermis (top layers of the skin) no longer turns over as quickly. Turnover, or desquamation, refers to the combined action where old, dry and dead skin cells exfoliate off the skin and are replaced from the bottom layer with new healthy skin cells. When this process slows down the dead skin cell layer becomes thicker and the healthy viable (alive) layers decrease. What we see on our skin is dull, dry and coarse skin with many fine lines.
