How Do Our Retinol Body Products Compare?

One of the most well-loved ingredients for aging skin on the market is retinol–helping more than just the skin on your face. Retinol works by increasing skin cell turnover, which helps reduce the appearance of everything from fine lines and wrinkles to dark spots and even dry, flaking skin.

At Versed, we offer a variety of products specifically formulated with this good-for-you ingredient at the forefront, and our new Press Restart Body Collection is leading the charge. We're breaking down our new range to help you find the best formula for your skin type and concerns below.

The Basic Ins and Outs of Retinol 

It's common to get retinol and retinoids confused, but the basics are this: Retinoids are often prescription-strength and come with unwanted side effects like peeling and irritation. Retinol, however, is easily accessible, and while mild compared to retinoids, it offers the same wrinkle-reducing and age-defying benefits.

Our two retinol body products feature encapsulated retinol, a version of retinol that uses a unique coating, allowing for the active ingredient to be released once it bypasses the upper layers of the skin. This process ensures that you get all the retinol results without the irritation.

Contrary to what you know about incorporating retinol into your routine, you can use either formula during the day, but we encourage nightly application for the best results. Keep in mind that both retinol body products will require SPF application to exposed skin during the day since retinol increases photosensitivity, making you more prone to sun damage.

The Best Body Retinol Formula For Your Skin Concerns

Our Press Restart Gentle Retinol Body Lotion and Press Restart Advanced Retinol Body Butter are unique formulas that cater to distinct skin types and needs. Find the right match for your skin below.

Press Restart Gentle Retinol Body Lotion

This body lotion is a lightweight and non-greasy formula we've infused with hydrating squalane at 1% to help lock in moisture and nourishing cocoa butter at 2.5% to treat normal to dry skin. But, while these ingredients play a noticeable role in our Gentle Retinol Body Lotion's qualities, encapsulated retinol is the primary active responsible for the aging-focused benefits. By incorporating encapsulated retinol at 0.010%, you'll see a change in uneven skin texture and tone, creating a more radiant and firm look to the skin with consistent usage.


This version of a retinol body product works best for those who have sensitive skin and/or live in warm weather climates and do not require intense hydration.  

Press Restart Advanced Retinol Body Butter

As the name suggests, our Advanced Retinol Body Butter is a formula that packs a punch when it comes to tackling dryness, signs of aging, and skin texture. Rich in consistency and ultra-nourishing to the skin, this cream provides the texture-reforming benefits of encapsulated retinol at 0.013% (30% more than our Gentle Retinol Body Lotion). That's not the only ingredient we've tweaked in this formula either. We opted for 1.5% squalane to seal in hydration and blended cocoa and tucuma butters at 2% for even deeper moisturization. Skin feels softer, more supple, and appears firmer than ever before.

Don’t just take our word for it, based on an 8-week user perception trial of people aged 25-65:

Reach for this retinol formula if you live in a colder climate or are looking for extra hydration—it’s perfect for Gentle Retinol Body Lotion lovers who want just a little more.
