Intensive AlphaRet Overnight Cream, 50 ml


Intensive AlphaRet Overnight Cream is a powerful skincare treatment formulated to rejuvenate the skin using a unique blend of retinoid and alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). This innovative cream features a higher concentration of glycolic acid and serves as a one-step nightly retinoid treatment, providing visible skin rejuvenation with minimal irritation. The advanced formulation helps to improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a more even skin tone. Ideal for those seeking effective anti-aging solutions, this cream combines potent ingredients to deliver noticeable results while being gentle enough for nightly use.


Intensive AlphaRet Overnight Cream by skinbetter science is a revolutionary anti-aging product designed to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. Traditionally, combining powerful skincare ingredients like retinoids and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) in one formulation has been challenging due to potential chemical reactions and irritation. However, SkinBetter Science has developed an innovative solution.

This cream features a unique formulation where retinoids, known for fading discoloration and boosting collagen production, are combined with lactic acid, an AHA that evens out skin tone and texture. Each active ingredient is encapsulated in its own microsphere, which are then linked to form the new ethyl lactyl retinoate molecule. This advanced delivery system ensures a gradual and gentle release of active ingredients upon application, activated by the water in your skin.

Valeri Rusco, PA-C, Founder of Direct Aesthetics, highlights that lactic acid not only acts as a humectant and mild chemical peel but also enhances the wrinkle-reducing effects of retinol. Clinical studies sponsored by the company have shown that this formula is as effective at smoothing lines and fading discoloration as tretinoin (a prescription-strength retinoid), without causing significant irritation.

Key Features:

  • Advanced Anti-Aging: Combines retinoids and lactic acid to address discoloration, collagen production, and skin texture.
  • Innovative Delivery System: Encapsulates active ingredients for a gradual, gentle release, reducing the risk of irritation.
  • Effective and Gentle: Proven to smooth lines and fade discoloration as effectively as prescription-strength retinoids.
  • Hydrating and Exfoliating: Lactic acid provides hydration and mild exfoliation, enhancing overall skin appearance.

Incorporate the Intensive AlphaRet Overnight Cream into your nightly skincare routine to experience comprehensive anti-aging benefits without the typical irritation associated with retinoids and AHAs.

  • Significantly reduces the appearance of wrinkles within four weeks of use.
