Retinol + Friends Sleeping Serum
You know about Retinol-- you know you HAVE to have it in your routine, so just a quick note here... we use the newest micro-encapsulated form of Retinol in a velvet serum with a few of our favorite peptides to lend a hand. It won't degrade, and it will work hard for you all night long.
What This Serum Does:
It's a potent antioxidant (shown to be able to protect skin from oxidative damages). It can improve appearance of aged and fragile skin, and its ingredients are often used as add-on ingredients in skin-lightening products to correct hyperpigmentation and age spots. And then there's the retinol glow that comes from it's beautiful exfoliation.
This particular adaptable Retinol has done wonderful things for our guinea pig focus group. We use the maximum recommended amount for this formula-- so if you're new to Retinol, you might want to use this only a few times a week, to start. Just FYI, there's 28,333 IU per ounce, which is way more than enough.
We feel we have achieved the activity of products that carry a much heftier price tag. Like much heftier.
