Murad develops new Time Release retinol concentrate for deep wrinkles
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Murad, whose products are sold at salons, spas, Sephora and Ulta, is bringing to market in March its new Time Release retinol concentrate for deep wrinkles, featuring new technology that is designed to control the release of retinol over time for maximum performance while improving the stability and efficacy of the product.
Time Release retinol concentrate for deep wrinkles utilizes encapsulated retinol, which helps reduce sensitivity and irritation to retinol, and it is the first targeted deep wrinkle treatment from Murad. It is also the first product to use an anti-bacterial, silicone applicator in the company’s Age Reform line.
Ideal for those who need a concentrated solution for stubborn, deep wrinkles, the spot treatment formula is clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles by 45% in six weeks, according to the company. This triple-action, wrinkle-fighting treatment, which has the highest retinol content in the Murad line, combines encapsulated retinol; Matrixyl Synthe’6, a peptide that helps rebuild damaged collagen to plump creases and crow’s feet; hyaluronic acid; and Ceramide-3.
Time Release retinol concentrate for deep wrinkles can be used with all Murad lines and in conjunction with other anti-aging products for an added, concentrated boost precisely where it’s needed. The silicone, antibacterial applicator tip allows for precise application and controlled dispensing to deliver concentrated power directly to targeted areas of concern.
Time Release retinol concentrate for deep wrinkles is priced at $65 and will be available beginning in March.
