  • 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 Gamechanger I was introduced to Skinceuticals at the med spa office. I was having a really hard time managing my rosacea. Even after using prescription products my skin was still red and bumpy. I decided to give this retexturing activator a try. I had never even heard of such a product. It's been about a month and a half and gone are the days of wasted money and disappointment . I am so happy to have found this. It has been an answer to all of my problems. My skin is now soft and smooth. Thank you!
