Did You Know?

Did You Know?
The Retinol ingredient used in our formula is a Pure Retinol; this is the purest form of retinol available over-the-counter. It converts in skin to retinoic acid to target skin concerns. Retinol derivatives – these forms (e.g. retinyl palmitate, retinal) are retinol esters that require several conversion steps to become retinoic acid in skin. The conversion causes a loss of potency. Retinol Alternatives – these ingredients, such as bakuchiol, phytomimetic vitamin A and granactive, are not retinol, but can help to address some of the same concerns as retinol. These can take longer to work than Pure Retinol.

Ditch The Fear of Retinol Discomfort

Expertly calibrated into a perfect daily dose, our skin-gentle Retinol serum delivers visibly potent results with a reduced likelihood of discomforting side effects such as redness, dryness or peeling.

90% Agree Skin Feels Comfortable, Including First-Time Retinol Users*

*Results based on a consumer study after 12 weeks of use, 132 participants including first-time users.
