How To Use

Twice daily, apply 4-6 drops of serum to the face, neck, and chest, or use as directed by a skincare professional.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    Retexturing Activator harnesses two polar mechanisms – exfoliation and hydration – to activate skin’s natural desquamation, or removal of dead skin cells, and visibly diminish surface lines without dryness. This replenishing serum is shown to have the resurfacing power of a daily 20% glycolic treatment.

Key Ingredients

  • 25% hydroxyethyl urea/aminosulfonic acid compound
  • Kombucha
  • Hyaluronic acid

This unique patented combination of ingredients is designed to stimulate enzymes that help break the bonds binding dead skin cells to skin’s surface, to evenly exfoliate skin while maintaining the skin’s moisture levels

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite serum ever The texture of my skin has never ever been smoother and the moisture retention is next level

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast results! I have been using this for a week only every other night, and I use the glycolic 10 the nights I dont use this. My dermatologist suggested to build up the usage of both products to every night, first this and second the glycolic 10 but I am a little affraid to do so. Are those 2 products good to be used together every night?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Toner! This toner was recommended to me by a skin care specialist, and I am now addicted. It is great for hydration, and even skin tone. It is also gentle enough for my super sensitive skin. I have started to use once a day in the evening, and only need a couple of drops to make a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is in my top two clay masks of alllllllll time and I’ve used ALOT! From drug store to sephora faves, to other medical grade options. This one meets and exceeds my expectations, it really gets in there and keeps my skin clear! I have oily/sensitive acne prone skin, and I wouldn’t survive without this mask. I use it once a week usually, and I always follow it with their phyto mask. If you want results and you’re committed to good skin, this is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this. Every time I break out I use this and by the next morning my skin is clear again. I also use it when I feel a breakout coming on and it usually treats it before I see any real pimples surface.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only been using this product for a month now but I've noticed a difference. My skin tone is light and I don't have intense dark circles, but I'm noticing as I get into my 30s I am losing volume. It is pricey, but you don't need to use a lot each night. I will buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Serum is incredible! The product provides firmness and hydration to the skin by regenerating the surface of the skin and, thus, preventing aging. It is clear that this cosmetic is quite expensive, but if you are one of those people who prefer to avoid problems with the skin with unreliable and cheap products, this product is wonderfully effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best!! It has kept my under eyes from creating creases or fine lines. I am 35 yo and I still get looked at as being 25. Take care of your skin at a young age, you’ll be happy you did.
