NovoRetin™ is based on mastic, an aromatic resin that comes from a tree which exclusively grows on the Greek island of Chios. NovoRetin™ serves as an ideal plant-based retinol alternative, providing both strong anti-aging effects and exceptional benefits for acne-prone skin. 

NovoRetin™ is COSMOS and NATRUE approved.

Plant Source

The mastic tree or lentisk (Pistacia lentiscus) is an evergreen shrub that grows on arid, rocky and poor soil. Lentisks are typical maqui-type vegetation found in Mediterranean countries. However, only the mastic trees of southern Chios give the typical resin when the bark is scratched. This is probably due to the soil and the especially warm and dry weather conditions and explains why mastic production in Chios is granted protected designation of origin (PDO).
