Retinol Cream is offered by Benev, the company that also provides exfoliators, moisturizers and sun protection in addition to skin treatments. Benev’s mission is to become a leader in the health care industry. They place an emphasis on immunology and anti-aging, according to the Benev website. Products that are offered by this company are only available through a physician’s office, although doctors don’t necessarily require you to make an appointment to purchase these products. Benev Retinol Cream claims to penetrate deep under the skin’s surface, where it can reduce the appearance of current wrinkles and prevent more from occurring. This product is also touted on the company website as an effective acne treatment, which makes us wonder how it can help two such different skin conditions at the same time equally well.

We were unable to find any money back guarantee on Retinol Cream, nor could we find testimonials and before and after photos on the website. A price for the product was also not included, which means you will have to contact your doctor to get additional information about the Retinol Cream. The lack of available information gives us pause, since a consumer should be well informed about the products applied to the skin. Lack of ingredient knowledge can be a problem for those who have allergies or sensitive skin, especially when you consider that retinol is a potentially irritating ingredient on its own.

Product Details

Retinol is basically vitamin A, and in the case of Retinol Cream, it is the purest form of vitamin A available. The company does claim that the retinol is stabilized with antioxidants, which are a good substance for preventing further environmental damage to the skin that free radicals can cause. The only other ingredient cited on the company website is Rose Hip Oil, which is used as a hydration substance for the skin to moisturize and improve the appearance of the complexion.

Retinol has been shown to be an effective ingredient in improving the overall appearance of the skin, although saying goodbye to lines and wrinkles is quite another story. It is difficult to get just the right amount of vitamin A in a retinol formula; too much and the product will become too irritating to the skin, and too little retinol will not be able to provide the desired effect.

The Good

  • A strong corporate presence online will help to instill confidence in the Benev Retinol Cream.
  • Retinol is a proven ingredient in the field of skin care health.

The Bad

  • A complete ingredient list does not seem to be available at this time.
  • We could not find any testimonials or money back guarantee on the product.
  • The product is only available through your doctor.

The Bottom Line

Benev Retinol Cream may be an effective way to reduce free radical damage that has occurred on your skin. However, the jury may still be out on how much retinol is required to achieve the desired effects without irritating the skin. The percentage of retinol included in any product will greatly alter the results that a user sees, and users with sensitive skin should be weary of products containing high concentrations of this ingredient. Your best bet may be to stick with other anti-aging products that contain more effective ingredients if you want to get serious about winning the war on aging.
