What Is Tri-RetinX? Learn About Our Gentle Retinoid Blend
Here at Rejuvaskin, we’re always on the lookout for all-natural, gentle ingredients to include in our skincare products that don’t have a negative effect on your skin. We’ve used these principles to put together a gentle yet effective retinoid cream that everyone can use – even on sensitive skin!
In this blog, we’re going to take a look at the ingredient breakdown in our Tri-RetinX™ blend and answer your questions, like what retinol is best for beginners, are retinoids or retinols better, and what is bakuchiol.
Are Retinoids or Retinols Better?
This is a question whose answer really depends on your skin. Some people have sensitive skin that reacts poorly to the super-strong, man-made ingredients in prescription-strength retinoids. In general, we recommend either a) starting lightly and every few days with a strong retinoid or b) using a retinol cream instead to acclimate your skin.
With our Retinoid Face Serum and Retinoid Eye Cream, you don’t have to worry about that; we use a special blend of three gentle retinoids (known as the Tri-RetinX™ Complex) so that your skin won’t be upset with you! If you’re wondering what retinol is best for beginners, we recommend starting with something gentle, like our face serum and eye cream.
So, What Is The Tri-RetinX™ Complex?
Tri-RetinX™ is our proprietary blend of three all-natural, gentle retinoids, selected for their ability to reduce inflammation and help skin repair and heal. These three ingredients work together to create a reliable, effective anti-aging regimen, supported by the other ingredients in our Retinoid Face Serum and Retinoid Eye Cream.
Ingredient #1: Bakuchiol
What is bakuchiol? Derived and extracted from the Babchi plant, bakuchiol is a potent antioxidant and gentle retinoid. Unlike man-made retinoids that cause skin irritation and redness, bakuchiol works together with the next two ingredients to plump up your skin with moisture, reduce inflammation, and minimize lines and wrinkles.

Ingredient #2: VitAphira Sea Fennel
This is an extract from an herb that grows wild along the coastlines in the Mediterranean, but it can be cultivated almost anywhere. Sea fennel (also known as rock samphire) is a very flavorful plant and is used in many regional dishes. However, in the last decade, sea fennel has been making its way into the cosmetics and skincare scene.
Sea fennel is a great antioxidant and mild retinoid that also supplies the skin with moisture and helps to lock in that moisture for smooth, supple skin.
Ingredient #3: Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (HPR)
You might take a glance at this long string of letters and have a meltdown – that’s okay! The simplified name for this chemical compound is vitamin A. HPR is a bio-available vitamin A ester, meaning that it can soak into the skin much easier than other forms of vitamin A. As you probably already know, vitamin A is incredibly important in skin health and proper function. It can help your skin maintain its youthful glow and stay well-hydrated.
