Givaudan unveils RetiLife™, a pioneering 100% natural-origin retinol crafted through biotech. The first sustainable alternative to synthetic retinol!

Givaudan announces today the introduction of RetiLife™, a molecule for anti-ageing and a breakthrough evolution for the cosmetic industry. This new active ingredient is the first 100% naturally sourced retinol, and as such a sustainable solution to chemically synthesised retinol.

RetiLife™ is the first of its kind to offer a sustainable alternative to synthetic retinol with similar anti-wrinkle efficacy.
With 100% natural-origin content, including sunflower oil as a carrier, the composition of RetiLife™ avoids synthetic ingredients such as BHT/BHA or polysorbate. Its molecule is identical to its chemical counterpart.
