Vitamin A is a key ingredient in skincare products because of its numerous benefits for the skin. At Doctor A Cosmetics, we use vitamin A in many of our products such as our Natural Vitamin C Brightening Moisturiser because of its ability to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
One of the main benefits of vitamin A in skincare is its ability to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that helps to keep the skin looking firm and youthful. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging skin. Vitamin A can help to counteract this by boosting collagen production and helping to keep the skin looking smooth and youthful.
Vitamin A is also an excellent antioxidant. It helps to protect the skin from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage the skin and contribute to the appearance of aging. By neutralizing free radicals, vitamin A helps to keep the skin looking healthy and radiant.
In addition, vitamin A has been shown to be effective in improving the texture of the skin. It can help to smooth out rough or uneven skin and can also reduce the appearance of large pores.
Overall, the benefits of vitamin A in skincare are numerous. It can help to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin, making it a valuable ingredient in any skincare routine. At Doctor A Cosmetics, we are dedicated to using high-quality ingredients like vitamin A to create effective and nourishing skincare products for our customers.

Vitamin A comes from two sources, retinoids, such as retinols which can be found in vitamin A rich foods, such as eggs and dairy products) and carotenoids which can be found in dark green vegetables and carrots.
Vitamin A creams are available in different retinol strengths. What this means is that some creams may have a higher percentage of retinol than others. The higher the percentage the more it can cause skin sensitivity especially if you are new to using vitamin A in your skin care regimen.
When applying vitamin A, it is important to remember:
- Apply a thin layer.
- Do not use more than a pea- sized amount.
- Incorporate vitamin A slowly into your skincare regimen, starting perhaps with once a week then increasing it slowly to every three days- or whatever best suits your skin.
- Remember to always follow a vitamin A product with an SPF, as retinols can make your skin sensitive in the sun.
