    General Information

    Effective mix of three forms of vitamin A. Retinol Booster

    It's all in the mix! Even when it comes to anti-ageing care. That's why the Retinol Booster contains various classic and newer active ingredients that complement each other. The light, water-based serum combines an innovative mix of three forms of vitamin A with vitamin C and vitamin E as well as niacinamides, panthenol (also known as provitamin B5 or dexpanthenol) and the antioxidant in green tea. These substances support and strengthen the effectiveness of the vitamin A forms. Other players in the anti-ageing team are the skin's own lipids and moisturizers such as hyaluron, ceramides and phospholipids, which also form the basis for other care creams from Beyer & Söhne.

    Retinol is a form of vitamin A, which is an effective antioxidant that protects against free radicals and plays an important role in building up the skin structure, especially the upper layer. It promotes the skin's regeneration process, supports the refinement of the skin's appearance and helps to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers. A fresh, stable collagen scaffold in turn ensures that the skin remains supple and flexible, thus reducing the depth of wrinkles.

    Retinol and retinal - even stronger as a team

    The retinol serum owes its effectiveness to a whole complex of active ingredients and can rightly call itself a booster. First of all, there are different types of retinol: pure retinol and its precursor, the retinol ester, which are first converted in the skin to retinal (retinaldehyde) and retinoic acid (tretinoin or vitamin A acid). The latter are highly effective and should therefore be used with caution. For example, 0.01% retinal is just as potent as 0.1% retinol. Retinoic acid esters are relatively new in facial care. In an ester, the retinoic acid is combined with another substance, for example hyaluronic acid (INCI Sodium Retinoyl Hyaluronate), and is therefore gentler. The Retinol Booster therefore contains high doses of retinol (0.1%) and retinal (0.06%) as well as retinoic acid hyaluronic acid ester (0.1%). Other ingredients complement the effect of vitamin A and ensure better tolerability: niacinamide (3%) as well as vitamin C (2%) and encapsulated EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate, the main active ingredient in green tea) - both of which are effective free radical scavengers - and ceramide precursors (tetraacetylphytosphingosine). Panthenol and phospholipids support the skin barrier and the supply of moisture.

    Apply a thin layer of Retinol Booster in the evening as the first step in your skincare routine and allow it to absorb well. Retinol newcomers should start cautiously and initially only use the Retinol Booster every two days. If it is well tolerated, you can slowly increase to daily use. If you experience irritation, use the Retinol Booster less frequently and apply it over your cream in the evening. For better tolerance, the Retinol Booster can also be mixed with other products such as serums and creams. During the day, please use a sunscreen with at least sun protection factor 30.

    Natural skin and anti-aging care. From Beyer & Söhne

    As a pharmacist, Hartmut Beyer is very familiar with ingredients and active substances. But for the realization that neither aging can be stopped, nor that there is a miracle active ingredient against it, it did not need a pharmacy degree. However, his many years of professional experience confirmed his conviction that our skin has enormous potential to heal and repair itself. The healthier the skin, the greater this ability. Which led Beyer to the simple realization, "Healthy skin ages slower and looks more beautiful." So the secret of effective skin and anti-aging care is to support the skin in its complex regeneration process.
    An important role in this is played by an adequate supply of moisture and antioxidants, so-called radical scavengers. The latter can neutralize free radicals and thus protect the skin from oxidative stress. This occurs when free radicals are increasingly formed, for example through air pollution or UV-A radiation. If these highly reactive substances are present in excessive quantities, they can attack and damage the body's own cells. Aging is thought to be the result of this damage. Antioxidants bind the free radicals and can thus reduce the formation of wrinkles.
    Another factor in the aging process is the decreasing synthesis of collagen; after the age of 30, it decreases by about 1% per year. Collagen is a protein that gives our skin its structure. If the collagen structure becomes brittle, wrinkles appear. Vitamin C and A help here: they stimulate collagen production and ensure that a healthy collagen framework.

    Skin-identical cosmetics. Compatible and effective

    Our body can best process endogenous or skin-identical substances, it recognizes them as "its own kind", therefore does not attack them and rarely develops allergies to them. What could be more natural than to supply the skin first of all with its own basic building blocks and to combine these in a second step with selected active ingredients? Beyer therefore uses not only natural but also skin-identical active ingredients. In their composition and structure, they correspond to the skin's own basic building blocks, so that the skin cannot distinguish them from its own. Skin-identical active ingredients are therefore not only more effective, but also better tolerated. That is why Beyer has developed as a basis a cream of pure phosphatidylcholine, a natural main component of the body's cells, which can transport the active ingredients deep into the skin.

    With pure active ingredients. Highly dosed and balanced

    For the formulas are selected vitamins and highly dosed, pure active ingredients, which in combination with the basic building blocks each result in an easy-to-use, dermatologically useful product. The formulations contain the well-known antioxidants (so-called radical scavengers) vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin C also stimulates the formation of collagen and vitamin A stimulates skin renewal. Panthenol (provitamin B5), coenzyme Q10, folic acid, biotin, zinc, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and phospholipids are included. Furthermore, resveratrol (a molecule of grape seed oil), green tea, astaxanthin (an active ingredient from red algae) and tocotrienols (a form of vitamin E) as particularly effective antioxidants.
    All products are free of colorants and fragrances, hormonally active substances as well as silicones and mineral oils. Production takes place at the headquarters of the family business, in which Hartmut Beyer's two sons also joined a few years ago.


    It is recommended to avoid retinol and retinal during pregnancy.
