"The foundation of Verso is our proprietary Vitamin A complex,
LARS FREDRIKSSON, FOUNDER OF VERSO SKINCARE
Retinol 8 is a vitamin derivative that turbocharges the benefits of traditional Retinol without causing discomfort. Smoothing the appearance of wrinkles, strengthening the skin barrier, reducing pigmentation and supplying the skin with more energy, Retinol 8 works by stimulating the skin’s own production of collagen. The visible result is a younger, more radiant-looking skin. In addition, Retinol 8 has an advantage over traditional Retinol in that it does not react to UV rays. It can therefore be used safely during the day. So, there’s no need to set aside special occasions for treating your skin.
SKINCARE MADE EASY
Verso exists to add a little ease to everyday life. Established in Stockholm in 2013, Verso’s mission is to simplify your daily skincare routine. Our product range provides the essentials for long-term skin beauty and health. Based on advanced science, each product is easy to use and makes you ready to meet your day in no time.
EVERYDAY SCIENCE: RETINOL 8
Verso’s secret recipe for everyday simplicity starts with our proprietary Vitamin A complex Retinol 8. Eight times as effective as traditional retinol and half as irritative, Retinol 8 stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production, substantially reducing the signs of aging. It is the result of Verso’s quest for an extra effective retinol complex that is gentle to the skin. Retinol 8 targets your skin’s most vital needs, considerably improving its quality and texture while keeping your daily routine simple.
NO UNNECESSARY INGREDIENTS
We select ingredients with care and take no shortcuts when developing our products. Retinol 8 helps us keep the ingredient count low. Only high-quality substances with the ability to slow down the aging of skin and maintain its beauty make the cut. Free from color additives, parabens and mineral oil, the Verso range is gentle enough for everyday use on delicate skin.
Verso was born out of a desire to provide effective everyday essentials that can be smoothly paired with personal favorites in any skincare setup or used as stand-alones. Fundamental to our philosophy is a scientifically based belief in quality. In the Verso universe, quality equals longevity. From day one our goal has been to offer fresh, clinically tested products for the long-term improvement of all types of skin.
"Everyone should use at least one Vitamin A product every day in their skincare routine."
