Key active ingredients
  • +1.5% Rainbow algae complex
    In vivo studies show this concentration of Rainbow algae complex evens skin tone and provides a brighter complexion of blemish-scarred skin

    Sustainably sourced from sugarcane, squalane is a go-to moisturiser and helps to keep skin supple and soft and helps maintain a healthy skin barrier function
  • +3.75% Glycerine
    One of the often-unsung heroes of skin care. glycerine acts as a humectant holding onto moisture and reducing TEWL thus helping to maintain a healthy skin barrier function.

Apply 4-5 drops in the evening after cleansing.
For best results, use daily. Formulated to be gentle but if new to retinol, you may want to start out using 2-3 times per week.

Key active ingredients
  • +2% Encapsulated retinol
    0.2% pure retinol is encapsulated in phospholipids, which allow the retinol to penetrate through several layers of the epidermis. Once the phospholipids penetrate the skin they breakdown to release the retinol making its mode of action much more effective. Delivered via this method, the retinol is clinically proven to gently increase cell turnover which in turn helps to maintain a healthy skin barrier function, helping reduce the uneven tone of blemish-scarred skin even on gentle skin using this low level, slow release retinol.

Gentle but effective impact…

+0.5% Salicylic acid…
This is an encapsulated form of salicylic acid, with in vivo studies showing that it has less irritation on the skin versus standard salicylic acids without compromising on efficacy i.e. exfoliating the oil layer of the skin and unclogging pores

+2% Succinic acid…
At the levels we have used, succinic acid and niacinamide (below) have both shown through in vivo testing to reduce excess oil on the skin and help reduce the frequency of breakouts

+5% Niacinamide…
5% niacinamide is clinically proven to significantly reduce excess oil on the skin, giving rise to a reduction in breakouts. When combined with humectants and moisturisers to support a stronger and healthier skin barrier. So we added…

ADDED BENEFITS…

+0.997% Sea kelp complex…
In vivo testing shows that at this level the sea kelp extract significantly improves skin hydration and therefore helps alleviate the potential drying effect of the salicylic acid and working to boost the impact of niacinamide.

+3% Propanediol…
Works in conjunction with niacinamide to support moisturisation and reducing Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TEWL)
