This gentle skin resurfacer has the ability to visibly reduce signs of aging and refine skin texture. Indeed Labs Retinol Reface is a lightweight cream. It is a 3-in-1 formulation as it combines, retinol, bakuchiol, and a retinol-like-peptide to deeply refine the skin with no peeling or irritation.
Slow release technology ensures its actives are working continuously throughout the day to produce visible results.
Retinol Reface by Indeed Labs harnesses the power of the famous anti-aging ingredient retinol. It uses a comfortable formula with slow release technology. Retinol has the ability to stimulate cell renewal in the epidermis and enhance collagen production. As well as this, it also protects the skin against free radicals. Free radicals are the leading cause of premature skin aging.
In this Indeed Labs formulation, retinol is encapsulated into microspheres. This allows it to remain stable over time, and prolong its release in the skin, so that it constantly works throughout the day. This 3-in-1 formula combines retinol with bakuchiol and a retinol-like peptide. Bakuchiol and the retinol-like peptide, have many of the same benefits as retinol, but are gentle on the skin.
Combining these three key ingredients in one formula produces a formulation that’s an intense anti-aging powerhouse with no peeling, dryness, or redness. This night cream is suitable for all skin types, including acne-prone skin.
- Reduces visible signs of aging
- Improves skin texture
- Microsphere technology stabilise retinol
- Minimises sensitivity
- Suitable for all skin types
With the natural aging process and the accumulation of sun exposure, the skin loses elasticity and collagen content. This means that wrinkles, uneven texture, and age spots can form. In addition, uneven skin pigmentation and texture can arise as a result of acne. Indeed Labs Retinol Reface has the ability to gently resurface the skin to target all of these concerns.
Use Retinol Reface consistently to reveal the best results and a visibly younger, resurfaced skin.

SKIN TYPES: Suitable for All Skin Types including Aging Skin, Pigmentation, Acne-Prone Skin, Mature Skin, Sensitive Skin, Normal Skin, Combination Skin
Bakuchiol: Bakuchiol is a purified meroterpene phenol found in many botanical sources. It behaves similarly to retinol (targets retinoic acid receptors), however, it's thought to be much gentler and reduce skin irritation. Bakuchiol has anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour, anti-bacterial, and anti-acne properties. It is a clinically proven anti-aging ingredient that improves signs of photoaging.
It stimulates collagen I, III, IV production, thereby reducing wrinkle surface area, and has antioxidant activity which protects the skin from environmental free radicals and UV-radiation induced damage. It also improves hyperpigmentation (dark spots/sun spots) as it inhibits 2 key enzymes involved in excess melanin (skin pigment), tyrosinase and alpha-melanin stimulating hormone.
Retinol Microspheres: Retinol is a form of vitamin A that bind to retinoic acid receptors (RAR) in the skin. Retinol is very useful in treating many skin conditions such as psoriasis, and skin aging. It is known for its anti-wrinkle effects as it has the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production and protect against free radicals (oxidative stress). Retinol also stimulates cell renewal in the epidermis and it has the ability to reverse irregular skin shedding (desquamation). This means that retinol also has anti-acne properties as it can treat and prevent comedones. It is also very effective in treating hyperpigmentation as it can increase corneocyte shedding.
Encapsulating retinol in a microsphere allows it to remain stable once opened, and provides a slow release of retinol to prolong its effect in the skin.
Retinol-like peptide: Retinol is a precursor of retinoic acid. Once it penetrates skin, it is sequentially oxidised to retinoic acid, causing retinoic acid-like effects, but is notably less irritating.
A peptide with multiple skin benefits, that provides the same benefits are retinol and supports its activity, while reducing skin irritation. This unique peptide, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-38, can boost production and activity of many skin matrix constituents and help to repair the dermal-epidermal junction; the interface between the epidermis and the underlying dermis.
This peptide stimulates collagen (types I, II, & IV), fibronectin (wound healing glycoprotein), hyaluronic acid (hydrating molecules), and laminin-5 (basement membrane protein), allowing it to smooth wrinkles and firm the skin.
