Apothekari A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum could be called a miracle for the skin if one existed. It is formulated with stabilized retinaldehyde, the ultimate retinoid because it is the direct precursor to Retinoic Acid, the form of Vitamin A that is used by the human body. But this serum offers even more, with ingredients that deliver photo-aging protection, exfoliation, anti-inflammatory/anti-irritant properties and skin brightening effects.
If you’re familiar with what retinoids can do for your skin, then you’ll know why we formulated this anti-aging serum.

My sensitive skin cannot tolerate prescription retinoids or other harsh retinols on the market today, but is loving the new Apothekari A is for Anti-Aging Retinal serum. It goes on without any greasiness and feels velvet smooth upon application. My skin has shown no signs of redness or flaking and after just a few weeks of use, it is noticeably brighter and smoother. Hooray!
I’ve been using the A is for Anti-Aging serum for the past couple of months and love how it makes my skin feel – very smooth and soft. And it’s not just me. In the past few weeks, I’ve received 2 compliments about how lovely my complexion is!!! I haven’t changed anything else about my routine or lifestyle so can only attribute these benefits to this serum. If you’re looking for a product that delivers results, try it!

I’ve been struggling with hormonal acne for at least 10 years and nothing was working. Sharmani recommended the A is for Anti-Aging Serum and in about a month, my breakouts significantly decreased. Beyond controlling breakouts, though I love the way my skin feels. It’s more smooth and also more even which is amazing! The fact that this serum contains retinaldehyde, which also helps to prevent skin damage and reverse existing damage is a definite plus.

I’ve been using Apothekari’s “A is for Anti aging” product for a few years now and love it! My fair, Scandinavian skin tolerates the retinal levels well and thus, at times, I’ve used it daily. Lately, though, I love alternating it with coconut oil, or with Apothekari’s Vitamin C product, Undercover Agent Serum. All in all, I’ve noticed an improved skin texture (smaller pores, more even tone), fewer blemishes and better oil control.

I am a huge fan of Apothekari Skincare! It feels good to be using high quality skin care products by a company that’s not only local, but also delivers on its promises. My favourites are A is for Anti-Aging Retinal Serum and Bespoke Vitamin C 15% Serum. My skin has never felt better – smooth, firm, hydrated, and radiant!
I am absolutely IN LOVE with Apothekari! A is for Anti-Aging Retinol Serum has changed my skin. I suffered from adult acne and I have not had a single pimple since I started using this Ah-mazing serum. Not to mention how firm and bright my skin is. And Made in Canada! It’s the whole package!
