A retinoid molecule that has a retinol part attached to a retinoic acid part. It is a synthetic molecule meaning that it has been not (at least yet) found in nature. It is more stable than retinol. There are first in-vivo studies (done with human volunteers) that suggest that retinyl retinoate can be more effective than retinol in reducing wrinkles. It is also most likely as effective as retinol in reducing acne, clogged pores, and evening out the skin tone. Manufacturers claim that retinyl retinoate is less irritating than retinol, but there is not enough independent data to confirm this.
