Retinaldehyde: Skin benefits of retinoids with less irritation
Retinoinds, such as retinoic acid (a.k.a. tretinoin, Retin-A), are a group of biochemical agents clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of skin aging. Unfortunately, retinoids can be irritating in sensitive individuals and if used improperly may do more harm than good. (See our article about retinoids). One alternative is to use less irritating precursors, the substances that are themselves inactive but can be converted to active (directly-acting) retinoids by the body. The most common retinoid precursors in skin care are retinol and retinyl palmitate, both forms of vitamin A. (In fact, retinyl palmitate is a biological storage form of retinol in the body). Unfortunately, while less irritating, retinol and retinyl palmitate tend to be considerably less effective than retinoic acid and other directly acting retinoids. The main reason is that they need to undergo at least two conversion steps before becoming retinoic acid. Such conversion tends to be slow and its rate varies among individuals. As a result, anti-aging effects of retinol and retinyl palmitate tend to be more modest and less reliable than those of retinoic acid and analogous retinoids.
Fortunately, there is a less common retinoid precursor that is just one step away from retinoic acid. Its name is retinaldehyde (a.k.a. retinal) and it is also considered a form of vitamin A. In just one step, the body can convert retinaldehyde either to retinoic acid or to retinol (which can be further converted to retinyl palmitate). Due to such metabolic dynamics, treating the skin with retinaldehyde could produce therapeutic levels of retinoic acid while reducing the risk of side effects associated with retinoid excess.
