A Retinol based product, it diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stimulating collagen production essential for skin elasticity and evening out the skin tone.

A soothing, calming lightweight gel, Ossential® Growth Factor Serum Plus slows and repairs the signs of aging. Combining retinol and amino acids, it helps the skin produce more collagen. The result – plumper, tighter, firmer skin! Perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin, the gel is applied 30 minutes before bedtime to restore hydration and enforce the skin’s protective barrier.
