  • 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 Retexturing Activator is a desert-island product for me! (If I could only take one product with me, this is hands-down the winner!) I have moderate eczema, and this keeps my skin smooth and healthy far more effectively than any of the prescriptions my dermatologist has had me try. My skin actually stays hydrated and smooth instead of flaking off. (That’s completely amazing after years, literally, of my skin peeling every week.) I don’t really believe in miracle serums, or in products that promise to solve all your skin complaints with one formula. But this serum is by far the best skincare product I have ever used, and the effects on my skin are truly amazing. I would honestly recommend that if you’re on the fence, you give this one a try — I’m incredibly happy that I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydrating! The best products hands down for use while on Retin A. This solved all my dry skin problems while not clogging my pores. Miracle serum! Word every penny. I have tried everything, look no further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this as a hydrating serum that doesn't break me out. However, this does not produce any significant results in the texture of my skin. It works for what it is but is overpriced for the effect in my opinion. SkinCeuticals Retexturing Activator

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like this serum. It does feel a little sticky but I just make sure I rub it in well. I found that this helped with the texture of my skin and pore size. I use this in my routine when I notice I get acne flare ups. I use this both in the morning and at night under my moisturizer. I will repurchase this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite skinceuticals serums. It’s very gentle, doesn’t burn and spreads very well. A little goes a long way. I layer this under the HA intensifier for hydrated, plump skin.
