  • Preservatives

    Function: Contribute to shelf stability
    Summary:
    Preservatives used in cosmetics get a lot of negativity in the press, but we promise, they're essential! Think of preservatives like your setting spray or finishing powder. You’ve spent all this time applying your makeup — do you want it to disappear within a few short hours? No, you want it to last! It’s the same thing with skin care. Stable shelf-life is achieved with preservatives, good formulations, and functional packaging. If there were no preservatives the formulations may deteriorate and go bad. Essentially, preservatives in cosmetics prevent bacteria from growing. They do this by killing microbes or creating an environment where it’s difficult for bacteria to spread.

  • Retinol

It's a potent ingredient that can make fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable.

    It may cause slight irritation in some people. We recommend introducing Retinol gradually (e.g. every other day during the first week, and then two days in three during the second week), to give the skin time to become adjust. Retinol makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, so we recommend using sunscreen and limiting exposure to the sun during periods of use. We also recommend that Retinol is not mixed with Vitamin C or AHA's & BHA's as it may increase the chance of irritation.
