A Lux Multi Ingredient Rectifying+ Retinol Serum combining Retinol & Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, 8 Peptides, & state-of-the-art brightening ingredients. An Arsenal of corrective ingredients, exquisitely formulated!
Rectifying+ 2.1% Retinol & Retinoate Serum is a cocktail of not only one form of Retinol, but two with the added benefit of Retinoate. The two ingredients may sound similar in the way they are spelled, but they offer very different benefits. This, being the reason, we wanted both in our age prevention skin care line.
Retinol is a specific type of retinoid—the most common and proven retinoid sold over-the-counter. Dermatologists often refer to retinol as the "gold standard" anti-aging ingredient because it is widely available and has decades of research demonstrating its effectiveness. Retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin color. Additional benefits include fading age spots and softening rough patches of skin
Our advanced formulation combines next generation retinoids (Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, and pure Retinol).
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is the newest addition to the Vitamin A Ingredient Family.
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is an ester of Retinoic Acid (or prescription strength Retin–A). The greatest benefits in using this new ingredient is there is little to no skin irritation.
Both retinol and Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate are excellent ingredients for the skin.
The second significant advantage Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate has over other forms of Vitamin A is ingredient stability. Thermal stress tests have shown that Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate will remain stable and effective in the skin for up to 15 hours.
A complex & advanced serum we have combined 9 Peptides, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract, & Bellis Perennis (Daisy Flower Extract known for their lightning and Anti-oxidant benefits make it the most elegant formula available at the most affordable price point!
How to use:
Use 1-2 Days the first week, Gradually using more frequently as skin tolerates the serum and working up to daily use.
What do peptides do specifically:
Hexapeptide-9, a Collagen peptide, helps strengthening structural tissues by naturally interacting with skin cells thereby promoting the rejuvenation
Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is a type of synthetic peptide composed of many amino acids to reduce skin inflammation and the skin damage. This peptide is believed to stimulate the regeneration of collagen in the dermis and improve the epidermal barrier
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 directly to your skin tells the cells to make more collagen, stimulating new collagen production. It requires at least one month or more to begin to see visible changes from new collagen with maximum results visible after 3 to 4 months
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide – 4 is a protein chain made from amino acid peptides, and offers skin the effects of Retinol without the irritation.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used in beauty products and cosmetics to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. This can lead to glycation damage, or the process by which glucose links with proteins and causes them to bind together, stiffening tissues. This negatively affects the skin's support system, comprised of collagen, elastin and other proteins, and leads to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone
Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 is a pentapeptide, synthesized chain protein created by linking five amino acid peptides. This chain creates a response in the dermis of the skin that stimulates collagen and elastin fibroblasts, developing fibronectin (FN) and glycosaminoglycans (GAG), according to research. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 is a small molecule that penetrates the skin easily and is structurally similar to the precursor of collagen type I. It is thought that pentapeptides can communicate with a cell and program it to do specific things, including repair work.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is made up of chains of Amino Acids and has the ability to penetrate the epidermis and enter deep into the dermis, where it stimulates collagen production and healthy tissue growth.
Once it’s in the Dermis, it not only speeds up collagen synthesis in the skin, but studies suggest that this peptide also has the ability to communicate with skin cells and prevent toxins that penetrate them from doing harm.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 does this by mimicking the body’s natural communication mechanisms that tell cells what to do. This kind of communication helps skin cells to either flush out the toxins or renders it inert.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 known as pal-GHK and Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 is a synthetic fatty acid-linked peptide that can help repair visible skin damage and strengthen skin’s underlying supportive elements.
It’s categorized as a messenger peptide because of its ability to “tell” skin how to look better, specifically in regard to visibly fading signs of sun damage like wrinkles and rough texture.
