What makes Murad’s retinol different?

February 14, 2024

Looking for a way to decrease lines and wrinkles while boosting collagen production in your skin? Retinol is the way to go. Retinol is a form of synthetic vitamin A that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and signs of aging. Retinol has set the gold standard in skincare for decades— because it’s clinically proven to speed cell turnover, enhance skin brightness and tone, smooth texture and help skin look more youthful.

What sets Murad retinol apart from all others? Our retinol is a potent-yet-gentle formula with results that are impressive, not aggressive—so you can put your best face forward with youth-boosted skin. Murad retinol is also part preventative and corrective, which helps to minimize the signs of aging you see, and the ones you can’t see yet.

Many retinol formulas rely on a single form of retinol to deliver results, take several weeks to deliver results and may cause redness, itching and irritation. With its unique combination of 3 different retinol technologies, Murad Retinol Tri-Active Technology overcomes any drawbacks you may have come to experience from retinol. It quickly and visibly minimizes lines and deep wrinkles, evens skin tone and boosts radiance while still being gentle for your skin. The three different technologies combined within Murad products with retinol are:

  • Fast-acting retinoid: This goes to work immediately upon application to deliver rapid, visible results
  • Time-released retinol: This controls the release of retinol and encourages ongoing skin benefits while still minimizing the potential for irritation
  • Retinol booster: This booster amplifies retinol’s ability to increase cell turnover when it’s used in combination with retinol

Murad has a three-part retinol skincare regimen: retinol serumretinol face cream and a retinol eye serum. Retinol Youth Renewal Serum improves the look of lines and wrinkles in 2 weeks, and Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream improves the look of youthful contours and wrinkles while intensely hydrating the skin. Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum improves the look of wrinkles all around eyes—including lids—with 360 application.
