WHY VITAMIN A RETINOL?
Vitamin A is a nutrient that occurs naturally in two forms; carotene and retinol. Studies show that some individuals have a genetic variant which may cause poor conversion between the carotene and retinol forms of vitamin A. For this reason, we use a high-quality pure vitamin A acetate in our supplement. This is a type of preformed retinol, which means it doesn't require conversion in the body. This form of retinol is suitable for vegans.
