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 I love this serum because it doubles as a hydrating moisturizer with the Hyaluronic Acid as well as an exfoliator. I typically apply this serum after cleansing and toning and always follow with a sunscreen during the daytime. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a life saver! I used to have so much texture on my cheeks and when i was recommended this product, i was scared because my esthetician told me it would bring all my impurities to the surface of my skin for cell renewal but after using this for a month, i'm glad to say i have no more texture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love this medical grade serum. Used to have a poor barrier function around my mouth and this has completely hydrated my whole face in a very light and non greasy way. The texture of my face has also completely changed and is so much smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this serum. I am on my 3rd bottle. I use this every night along with prescription retinol. Keeps my skin flake free and I feel like it helps the retinol work better. Also has helped with some adult acne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have some scarring on both cheeks from teen acne so it was important to me to find something that could possibly help town down the scarring. I love this serum, I have been using it for about a year and I have had people notice a difference in the texture of my skin. I plan on keeping it in my routine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think this is great for skin with hyperpigmentation as well as problematic skin. It really helps the overall texture and smoothness of your face.
