Due to the nature of active ingredients, this formula is expected to change colour or darken over time. It is recommended to store the bottle in a cool, dark place.
Use nightly as an all-over face and neck treatment or to target specific areas. Apply a small amount to fingertips and gently tap into the skin. Follow with the next step in your skincare routine. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day.
Caution: In the first few weeks of use, retinol can cause transient redness, peeling and irritation. If this occurs, we recommend reducing the frequency of retinol application until your skin builds tolerance and becomes more comfortable.
Base: A blend of natural esters with emollient and repairing properties.
Retinol: A form of vitamin A. Encapsulated in liposomes, which enables sustained and prolonged release, enhanced stability, improved skin bio-availability and use with minimal or no irritation. Stimulates the proliferation of epidermal cells and increases the thickness of the epidermis. Visibly retexturises skin surface and helps reverse signs of skin ageing.
Almond esters: Esters of almond oil with vegetable sourced polyglycerol. Rich in long chain monounsaturated fatty acids, these esters provide moisturising, conditioning, refatting and softening properties.
