Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can I use all 3 serums together?
A. Yes, you can also use the serums together. Maybe start off with only a small amount to see your skin’s reaction to it. The products are near 100% natural so should not cause you any irritation, but always best to test first. Also read the labels before using the products.
During the day you can use Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid Serums together. Clean and exfoliate (if needed that day) and then apply the Vitamin C Serum. Leave to dry for a few minutes, then apply the Hyaluronic Acid Serum. Again allow drying for a few minutes and before applying your moisturizer. These serums can also be used under makeup.
Night time is best to use any skin care product, as this is the time when your skin repairs itself. This is also the best time to use the Retinol Serum. Again clean and exfoliate (if needed) and then apply the Retinol Serum. Allow drying. You can then either combine with Vitamin C Serum again or the Hyaluronic Acid Serum or just use it on its own. Always follow with moisturizer.
Q. How much serum should I use?
A. You only need to apply a thin layer to get great results. Remember that our serums are quite potent and may dry our skin if too much is used.
Q. How long should I use the serums before seeing results?
A. What you should experience after about 3-4 weeks of use as directed is an improvement to the texture and tone of your skin. This may also hardly be noticeable in such a short period of time. Age and the original condition of one’s skin all play a factor in the speed at which these serums work. It stimulates collagen production from within the skin cells and most skin care products can take as long as a month to show any real noticeable results. On average, most of our customers saw improvement after about 6 – 12 weeks of regular use.
Q. Why do you use Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate rather than L-Ascorbic Acid?
A. Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate is widely used in the cosmetic industry because it is proven to be more stable than L-Ascorbic Acid. Unless mixed with unpleasant preservatives, L-Ascorbic Acid is very unstable and will lose its potency very quickly. Our uniquely stabilized formula is easily bioconverted to Vitamin C by skin enzymes, which means it is absorbed by the skin almost immediately after application.
Q. Is the Retinol in you 2.5% Retinol Serum the same as Retin-A
A. Whilst Retinol and Retin-A are similar, they are not the same. The difference is primarily in the formulation. Retinol is a natural form of vitamin A that is naturally present in the body. It is normally added to serums for direct application to the skin.
Retin-A however, is not a natural form of vitamin A. It is created synthetically skin care product labs. Because Retin-A is much stronger than Retinol, you are can't purchase Retin-A over the counter like you can with Retinol products.
You may also want to consult with a dermatologist to enable you to make an informed decision about which of these products are most suitable for your particular skin care needs and also to understand how they work to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
