Key benefits [TL;DR]

- Revitalizes skin texture and tone to promote luminous, glowing skin

- Advanced encapsulation technology ensures maximum effectiveness

- Helps to reduce the buildup of dead skin

What it is?

Containing the latest technology in stabilization and delivery, 0.5% retinol is encapsulated in a phospholipid layer for steady time release and is emulsified in a velvety cream. Touted as a miracle ingredient in modern skin care, Retinol is known for its ability to renew and refresh skin. Retinol is capable of acting intuitively to target individual imperfections. It can also improve the appearance of uneven tone and texture and diminish the look of expression lines and wrinkles.

Modern Miracle

This formula contains encapsulated Retinol, which is highly prized for its ability to improve skin's appearance dramatically. Each retinol molecule is wrapped in a protective layer of phospholipids that act as a delivery system to ensure maximum efficacy. The Retinol then converts to retinoic acid, which is a metabolite of vitamin A, for beautifully renewed skin.

Multi-Level Moisture

Glycerin, a hydrophilic ingredient that draws water to the skin, works synergistically with squalane, an emollient derived from olives, to provide all-day hydration. In addition, this formula includes two lightweight oils, jojoba seed oil, and safflower seed oil. These ingredients work synergistically with ceramide-3 to provide multiple layers of moisture that stay locked in for long-lasting hydration.

Make NourishMax Retinol Cream the cornerstone of your nightly wrinkle-fighting routine. A favorite of dermatologists for its proven age-defying benefits, this powerhouse ingredient works to transform the appearance of skin's texture and tone.

With an optimized delivery of Retinol, it supports cellular turnover and lessens the look of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Its encapsulated delivery system ensures maximum results. Revitalize, rejuvenate and rediscover the look of radiant, youthful-looking skin.

Why it's special?

Vitamin A is an oil-soluble vitamin that is not naturally produced by the body. It can be found in many plants and proteins and is an essential element to maintain a healthy immune system, vision, and organ function. There are many different molecular forms of vitamin A, 4 of which are mainly used in cosmeceuticals and are listed below by increasing degree of strength:

‣ Retinyl Esters (Retinyl Palmitate & Retinyl Acetate)

‣ Retinol

‣ Retinaldehyde

‣ Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin)
Each form of vitamin A undergoes a different process to fully convert the ingredient to retinoic acid. Once the ingredient has been fully converted to retinoic acid, it works with the skin's natural exfoliation process to ensure an ageless look and feel.

What is in it?

Vitamin A (Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate)

Retinol and Retinyl Palmitate are retinoid derivatives of vitamin A. They convert into retinoic acid to brighten and smooth the appearance of aging skin.

Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil)

Derived from a perennial shrub native to the southwestern US and parts of Mexico, jojoba seed oil is rich in fatty acids and acts as a lightweight emollient.


Derived from olives, squalane works to deeply moisturize skin. It has a similar composition to the skin's own sebum, which makes it an excellent hydrator.

Safflower Seed Oil (Carthamus Tinctorius Seed Oil)

Safflower is one of humanity's oldest crops and has been cultivated for centuries throughout a multitude of cultures for its oil. Safflower seed oil is used in skincare products for its emollient and moisturizing qualities.


Glycerin is a plant-derived humectant that works by balancing moisture levels, helping skin feel smoother and softer. It draws water to itself from the environment, ensuring hydrated skin.

Hydrolyzed Coconut Oil (Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride)

Hydrolyzed coconut oil is an emollient, meaning it conditions and moisturizes the outer layer of the skin. Derived from coconuts, these ingredients go through a process to ensure maximum efficacy and stability.


Ceramides are lipid molecules that are found in high concentrations within cell membranes. They are naturally found in the skin and play an important role in the protective layer that holds in moisture.

Love this product!!

I researched and tried all type of retinol moisturizing creams and this one is the best for the price!!!

Anne CM
Worth it

My spouse and I have been using this retinol crème for several months now and have noticed positive changes. It was on a list of the best, reasonably priced retinol creams. It did not disappoint. The lotion has a wonderful texture and does not seem to irritate the skin like some retinols. I’d recommend it.

Third purchase of retinol cream .5%

This product really works. I use a small amount after cleansing a couple of times a week. I can tell a difference the next morning. My skin is more radient and clear. No need to use moisturizer on top, especially in the summer. I do use serum underneath. A great product, that I can happily recommend.

The Best!

I love this retinol cream. It has a silky, soothing feel when applied. And it is gentle on my skin. I have very sensitive skin, and I can use it every night without any skin irritation.

Andrea Ryan
Nourish Max Retinol Cream

I have been using this product for over a year. I love the fact it goes on silky and my makeup goes on top with no problem. I love this product! Also helps with lines!

Great texture

I love this face cream and the .5% retinol works very well for me. Skin is smooth and soft. If I go heavy on the application I get. Little flaking but that tells me the retinol is working.

Great fit

I love how it leaves my skin. It even reduced a sun stain I had.

Great stuff!

Probably one of the best face creams I have used. I am 51 and have sampled plenty of face products. I did not my research on this one and very happy I purchased. My face looks refreshed and glowing. I will continue to buy as well as try other products.
