A long term advocate of the efficacy of retinol, she swears by it for acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, texture - and essentially every other complexion woe.

Retinol Reform started out as a product Shani made exclusively for her high profile clients, offering a formula that gave prescription strength results, without associated dryness and peeling. Her custom solution quickly garnered a celeb following, catapulted by Kimmy K stating it was her “favourite retinol”.

Retinol Reform went from an elusive insider product- to something skincare lovers around the world wanted a piece of.

Now Retinol Reform is the hero of Shani’s evolving range of namesake skincare.

So, what is it about this formula that makes it so revered?

Firstly, the retinol used is 2.2% encapsulated retinol. Meaning it delivers a slow, steady stream of retinol into the skin- which is the key to reducing irritation and flakiness.

Traditional retinols are free form molecules of Vitamin A, making them unpredictable when used on skin, and often leading to flaking, peeling and redness. Encapsulated retinol on the other hand is a retinol molecule that’s wrapped up inside a carrier system. This system, also known as time release technology, works to prolong the time between the product hitting your skin and when the actives start working, making the product more tolerable to use.

Encapsulated retinol isn’t where it stops- Retinol Reform also has aloe vera for soothing and hydrating, niacinamide (B3) for strengthening the skin surface, and lactic acid- which instantly brightens skin by lifting away complexion dulling dead skin cells.

This signature blend is precisely what makes Retinol Reform so effective, and so accessible to various skin types- and yes...even sensitive.

We've covered the formula.. what are the benefits?

Lots! Lots and lots....

Retinol is considered one of the only active ingredients that can actually change the quality of the skin.

Incorporating a sophisticated retinol solution can be a game changer to your skincare routine. But before you jump in- read our tips below:

Be Patient:

Retinol Reform isn’t a quick fix solution. Slow and steady wins the race.You’ll see initial improvement in less than a month, with full results in six to eight weeks.

Start Slow:

If new to retinol- start slowly, try using every other night working up to daily use one your skin is acclimated.

Hold Off:

If you’re pregnant or nursing. Vit A is an ingredient to avoid during this precious time

Avoid :

Using your Retinol on the same night as other actives, as it may cause skin irritation. A Vitamin C Serum can be used in the AM, and Retinol Reform can be used in the evening on the same day.

Apply:

At night for the actives to work their magic

SPF Essential:

Retinol use can make your skin sensitive to sun exposure. Commit to wearing sunscreen all day, every day.

The result? Signature Shani skin: plump, firm, ageless, smooth, even-toned, and clear.
