Yes, we recommend pairing Daily Peels with either the Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Texture Renewal Serum or Overnight Wrinkle Treatment. Additionally, our Triple Correction Eye Serum can be paired with all of our products and is the only product suitable for use on the eyelid. If dryness, irritation or flaking occurs, use at opposite times of the day.

Yes, retinol and vitamin C can be safely used together. When layered, vitamin C and retinol provide enhanced results. Some people may find the combination too active when used simultaneously, sowe recommend using at opposite times of the day if irritation occurs.

Our Phyto-Retinol Blend™ combines retinol, bakuchiol, rambutan and ferulic acid to increase the resurfacing and anti-aging benefits of retinol without the adverse side effects. Bakuchiol and rambutan function similarly to retinol while preventing and reducing irritation and subsequently providing a more dramatic result. Ferulic acid is a potent plant antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals released by retinol and has been shown to reduce UV-induced inflammation. This synergistic blend of soothing and strengthening actives makes our retinol gentle enough for even sensitive skin while remaining highly effective.

Yes, our retinol is formulated to be more gentle than traditional retinol. We recommend starting with Texture Renewal Serum for more sensitive skin or first-time retinol-users.

Our Phyto-Retinol Blend™ is specifically formulated to give enhanced benefits of retinol-use without traditional side effects such as flakiness, redness, and irritation. While some may find retinol is not suited to their skin, our Advanced Retinol + Ferulic is ideal for first-time retinol users as well as those struggling to incorporate retinol safely and effectively into their routines.

Our Advanced Retinol + Ferulic line is designed to be used day and/or night. When using any product containing retinol, proper sunscreen use is required during the day to prevent redness and maintain full ingredient potency. We recommend using the Overnight Texture Renewal Peel and Overnight Wrinkle Treatment in the PM to reap the full regenerative effects of these formulas.

Identifying your main concern and selecting from there will help you safely and effectively use retinol throughout the years. With the right formula, retinol can be used as early as teenage years. We recommend Texture Renewal Serum for blemish and complexion issues common in teens and young adults while Overnight Wrinkle Treatment is ideal for more advanced signs of aging.

No, retinol increases thickness of both the epidermis and the dermis for overall firmer, more youthful skin. This fear refers to how traditional retinol can strip skin causing redness, flakiness and irritation. Our unique Phyto-Retinol Blend ™ reduces irritation and actually strengthens the moisture barrier while delivering enhanced complexion-clearing and collagen-building benefits to skin.

You should always be using proper sun care. Retinol itself is sensitive to the sun and may lose efficacy if exposed to UV rays without protection. Retinol also increases cell turnover which exposes younger cells to the sun that require adequate UV protection to avoid irritation or hyperpigmentation. Always wear a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher when exposing your skin to the sun as recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology.

When applied to skin, retinol undergoes a series of conversion steps to become the active form called retinoic acid. Retinoic acid then binds to specific receptors in skin that “turn on” and “turn off” certain genes that control skin functions like cellular renewal, collagen production and oil control.

Bakuchiol is an active derived from the babchi plant that is the first to demonstrate similar clinical efficacy as retinol without redness or irritation. In addition to stimulating collagen production and reducing hyperpigmentation, bakuchiol boosts the genes responsible for strengthening the moisture barrier.

Rambutan is a plant extract that stimulates collagen production while decreasing the hyperactivity of collagen-degrading enzymes providing an overall stronger anti-aging benefit without the adverse side effects of traditional retinol products.

Ferulic acid is an antioxidant found in all plant leaves that provides protection against sun exposure. It’s been proven to similarly protect skin cells from UV-induced damage. In the Advanced Retinol + Ferulic line, ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals released during retinol’s conversion process to its active form which renders retinol significantly gentler and more tolerable on skin.

Our Phyto-Retinol Blend™ of retinol, retinol-like extracts and antioxidants work synergistically to deliver enhanced anti-aging, retexturing and complexion-clearing benefits to skin. This blend is specifically formulated to saturate skin’s natural receptors for maximum effectiveness. The percentage of retinol alone fails to capture the full breadth of the formula and its mechanism of action. Therefore, we emphasize our formula cocktail of ingredients and delivery systems over percentages for a more accurate description of product efficacy.

Retinol renews skin cells while alpha and beta- hydroxy acids exfoliate at the surface. Alpha and beta- hydroxy acids remove skin cells at the surface while retinol activates the basement layer of skin to produce new cells more quickly and migrate upwards to replace aging, damaged and hyperpigmented skin.

Purging is the process of increased breakouts and blemishes that may occur while using an acne or resurfacing product. When dealing with acne and problematic skin, congestion can sit underneath the surface. Resurfacing actives and acne products clear skin by accelerating cell turnover which brings congestion to the surface quickly and simultaneously. Not everyone experiences purging, but it is possible with any ingredient that accelerate skin’s renewal process or tackles acne. While purging occurs in areas where you typically breakout, adverse skin reactions will show blemishes or irritation in new areas. Purging typically lasts between 4-6 weeks and is followed by significantly fewer and less frequent breakouts overtime with continued use of the product.

Severe dryness, redness, burning sensation or new rashes is a sign any formula you are using is not suitable for your skin type. If this occurs, discontinue use of product immediately.

Reactivity occurs in areas where you normally do not breakout and may be associated with a stinging or burning sensation. General flushing is typically seen in individuals prone to redness and should not last long after application.
