So, what is retinyl palmitát?

Retinyl palmitate is a synthetic form of vitamin A, commonly used as an ingredient in dietary supplements and fortified foods. It is made up of palmitic acid and retinol, which are esterified to create retinyl palmitate. This fat-soluble compound is known for its antioxidant properties and important role in maintaining healthy skin, vision, and immune function. Due to its stability and effectiveness, retinyl palmitate is often included in skincare products and cosmetics as well. While safe in moderate doses, excessive intake of retinyl palmitate may lead to toxicity and adverse health effects.
