Being a minimalist in many ways, I am, to no ones surprise I guess, very much in love with the products from Verso Skincare. Verso is from Stockholm, created by Lars Fredriksson, who has developed the substance Retinol 8. Retinol 8 contains a new Vitamin A acid derivative that is 8 times more potent that traditional retinol. Retinol has long been known as the most effective substance in anti aging skincare products, but a known side effect is that it can irritate the skin and should not be used in direct sunlight. The Retinol 8 is gentle enough for the skin for daily use and the day cream can be used in the sun. Retinol 8 has a proven rejuvenating effect on the skin and it works by making the skin cells mimic how younger cells behave. The substance stimulates the production of collagen and increase the flow of nourishment to the skin, which leads to improved skin elasticity, a more even skin tone and a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. It contains no colorants, parabens or mineral oils. I can’t wait to get started on Verso – I have high expectations and hope to be less wrinkled very soon. In the meantime it will look so good in my bathroom. Win win. You can read much more about the Verso Skincare products right here.
