NourishMax Encapsulated 0.5% Retinol Cream

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

- Fights signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and texture irregularities

- Helps lock hydration into the skin to minimize dryness and sensitivity

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.

NourishMax makes my skin loo so much better

Great for acne

I bought this for the same reason that most people buy a retinol; my skin is aging and I'd like to prevent the incidence of new wrinkles and the progression of current ones. However, I have adult acne and have struggled with breakouts my whole life. This is the first retinol I've tried that has reduced the intensity of my breakouts and has helped them heal significantly faster. I recognize that most retinols increase the turnover rate of skin cells, which helps prevent acne. But, this is the first one to really prove that fact. I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase and will continue to use this product moving forward.

Satisfied customer

I finally found a product that actually works, the blemishes on my cheeks are fading away and I’ve noticed that my pores are appearing smaller; but you’ve got to be consistent in using the product daily to see results. I’m so grateful I found this product.

Really excellent product

I am in my mid-fifties and have tried lots and lots of different creams, but this one stands out above the rest. I use it on my face and hands and just love it! Well worth the money. A little goes a long way. I will buy it again for sure!!


I've used several kinds of retinol creams over the years which caused dry and irritated skin, so I never followed a consistent program and usually gave up.
I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now. I have not had any irritation or excessive redness. My skin feels smooth and hydrated after I use it.
And then just yesterday when I was applying makeup I noticed it -- a big difference in my skin. It was more taunt with less lines !!! I love this product.
I'm 62 with fair skin. I've had botox and fillers, so I care about my skin's youthful appearance. 5 Stars for Me !!!!!

Great for hands too!

I decided to use this on the top of my hands and wrists for three months and see what happens. I was actually pretty impressed and totally surprised how smooth the skin on my top of my hands looks and the brown spots are gone for the most part. I would buy again

Getting more far better results and extremely quickly; so much more effective than the 1.0 percent Retinol I have been using forever. This formula does NOT irritate my skin whatsoever, and is extremely firming! New to this brand, and so far I believe I have found a winner. And I'm 67 years young. Ten stars. Love their toner, and about to purchase some of their other products as well. Ten stars.
