Key ingredients: 0.5% Retinol (Vitamin A) – converted to retinoic acid in the skin.
Vitamin A helps to promote a clear complexion and an even skin tone.
Niacinamide (4%) – a potent and calming antioxidant that delivers multiple important benefits to the skin. It helps to reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and improve barrier function. This is critical for bright, even skin. Additionally, niacinamide helps to reduce age-related skin yellowing and redness, and create an overall youthful appearance.
Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3 – this retinopeptide mimics retinoid activity to support skin strengthening and collagen building.
Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract and Isosorbide Dicaprylate – provide long-lasting hydration, barrier support and antioxidant protection.
Citrus Aurantium Dulcis Callus Culture Extract (Orange Stem Cell Extract) – increases the production of collagen and elastin, and organizes and redensifies the dermal structure to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and increase elasticity and firmness.
PEG-23 Glyceryl Distearate – a patented cosmetic ingredient shown to reduce the sub-clinical inflammation that contributes to aging.
Terminalia Chebula Fruit Extract – has been shown to inhibit a variety of MMP to protect skin from oxidative damage. It also rejuvenates the extracellular matrix by stimulating collagen production and works to break collagen cross-links caused by age-related glycation.
Sodium Hylauronate – plays an important role in skin moisture retention and hydration.
Tocopherol and Tocotrienols (Vitamin E) – fat-soluble antioxidant and emollient ingredients.
Directions for use: After cleansing and toning, apply to the face, avoiding the eye area and the neck. Begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing application frequency to every other night, and then advancing to each evening or as tolerated. Follow with the appropriate PCA SKIN® moisturizer in the evening. Mild irritation may initially be experienced and is not a sign of a negative complication. This product is indicated for use in the evening only. Daily broad spectrum sun protection is critical while using this product.
