Can this product inactivate Retinol when used together?
I have read that certain ingredients like AHAs (glyolic and lactic acid), BHAs (salicylic acid), ascorbic acid (the acidic form of Vitamin C), and benzoyl peroxide can inactivate Retinol. The 2 ingredients in the Clarins cream I am concerned about effecting the Retinol are the Kiwi Extract and the Sorbic Acid. I am trying to figure out how to incorporate retinol into my nightly process (just started to use PTR Retinol Fusion PM) but I love this night cream so I would hate to give it up! Thanks!
