FAQ

Q. How does Retinol do to your skin? 
Wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity are caused by decreased collagen production and skin elasticity in the dermis which is part of the structure of the skin. Collagen naturally decreases due to environmental factors such as aging and UV rays. Retinol will deliver visible results in wrinkles by stimulating collagen gene and synthesis in the dermis. 


Q. Do you need to wash retinol off in the morning? 
Retinol is weak against light and heat; we recommend using it at night.  If applied during the daytime, be sure to use with a SPF. (* It is recommended to apply a SPF even if not applied during the daytime. Because it can be still left on skin in the next day.
