What is it? Daily multitasker works harder...smarter. Fights all the major signs of aging:

  • Reduces the look of deep-set wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hydrates and deeply nourishes skin
  • Plumps skin to restore its bounce and youthful contour
  • Evens tone and leaves complexion radiant
  • Refines and smoothes skin texture
  • Broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 30 protection help shield your skin from the sun and future damage. The unsurpassed performance of retinol without the irritation.


Who is it for? Sophisticated consumers concerned with deep-set and stubborn wrinkles, sagging skin, uneven texture and tone. Consumers that are unable to use retinoic acid due to irritation.

How is it different? For the first time, two of the most powerful anti-aging actives, NIA-114 and retinol, unite in one powerhouse treatment. For retinol (vitamin A) to achieve age-fighting potency, it needs niacin (vitamin B) to convert to its active form. StriVectin's proprietary NIA-114 molecule is one of the most active forms of niacin. It has the ability to absorb deeply into skin and strengthen the moisture barrier, reducing retinol sensitivity. Working as a dynamic duo, NIA-114 activates retinol's age fighting power to work harder, faster, smarter without the irritating side effects. So you get superior age-fighting benefits throughout the night to fight deep-set wrinkles, even out tone and texture, and deeply nourish skin.

Benefits:

  • NIA-114
  • Retinol
  • Paraben-free
  • Non-comedogenic

              Built in sun protection is great. I've used this product for a couple years and like it. StriVectin should be ashamed of their packaging. The box is more than twice the size it should be. It is not fooling us into thinking we are getting a larger tube of product.

                    • Q:

                      I want to begin adding retinol to my skincare routine and I know it's best to start with a low-concentrate product a couple times a week. What is the concentrate of retinol in this product? Is it safe for beginners, or would you recommend another strivectin product?

                        A:

                        This would be a great product for you to start. The reason is because we combine our patented NIA-114 technology with Retinol so that you get faster conversion of Retinol to retinoic acid and minimize the irritating side effects because NIA-114 builds a stronger skin barrier. Faster absorption means you will be able to utilize more of the Retinol in the formula and less irritation is critical for a first time user. You'll love the results!

                      • Brand Expert

                        A:

                        While we don't divulge the percentage of any of our ingredients, the concentration of Retinol is nonetheless quite potent in this formula. However, the key point of difference is our patented NIA-114 molecule which drives faster conversion of Retinol to Retinoic Acid so your skin is able to utilize more of the Retinol in the formula. In addition, our patented NIA-114 technology strengthens the skin barrier. Thinning of the barrier is what is responsible for many of the irritating side effects known of Retinol. So, you'll have better results with fewer side effects and love the resutls. To begin, we recommend our Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer first then certainly, add our Day Treatment SPF 30 and/or Concentrated Serum for a full daily Retinol regimen.

                        A:

                        You can choose either option in terms of your skin's reaction. When applying the Advanced Retinol Day Treatment, if you need additional moisture, you can apply the SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate on top once the first product has dried down. If you feel the hydration from the treatment is enough, you can switch off by using it during the day and the SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate at night.

                      I would like a moisturizer that I can use day or night. Is this as powerful as the AR Night Treatment? If so, is there any reason not to use this at night either alone or over the serum?

                        The StriVectin-AR Advanced Retinol Day Treatment SPF 30 is just as powerful as the Advanced Retinol Intensive Night Moisturizer. The reason to not use this product at night is because it contains SPF which is not necessary in the PM. Both products can be applied over the serum or alone.

However, any of our products that contain our patented NIA-114 ingredient, which helps strengthen the moisture barrier, may help reduce the appearance of your redness. If you have other skin care concerns, we'd be happy to provide you a personalized recommendation.

                        For normal to slightly oily skin, the Advanced Retinol Day Treatment SPF 30 will be great, as it is light-weight, hydrating but not occlusive and absorbs nicely to dry to a satin finish.

                        A:

                        Given your age and lack of visible wrinkles (good for you!), SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate is a better option as a preventive moisturizer that is lightweight, delivers potent actives and can be used twice daily. While you can use the Advanced Retinol Day Treatment SPF 30, if you need a product with SPF 30, look for our Repair & Protect Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 online later this month.

                        They both contain the same amount of Retinol and NIA-114 but generally, it is best to apply Retinol in the evening to ensure best absorption while you sleep.

                        A:

                        absolutely. If you have only been using it a short time, that is sometimes common as your skin adjusts to the Retinol and NIA-114. While the skin drying effects are minimized with the NIA-114, some initial skin dryness can still occur. Just layer another moisturizer over the top until your skin adjusts.
