    Frequently asked questions about Retinol + HPR Ceramide Water Cream +

    Could you explain the key differences between pure retinol and HPR, and why they work so well together without causing irritation?

    Topically applied retinol needs to be converted to retinoic acid in the skin before it exerts its anti-aging effects, whereas HPR binds directly to one of the known retinoid receptors.

    While people understand that retinol is a gold-standard anti-ager, they still worry about possible breakouts and dryness. How is it that Retinol + HPR can be so efficacious, without any unwanted symptoms?

    HPR does not bind to the receptor associated with side effects such as irritation and scaling. This allows us to “boost” the retinol efficacy by supplementing with HPR for more efficacy without increased irritation.

    Who is, or isn't, suited to Retinol + HPR and why?

    We recommend Retinol + HPR for anyone concerned about signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles and uneven color or spots.

    Can you please explain how ceramides and retinol work synergistically in the Retinol + HPR to boost the skin?

    The ceramides that we have in our formula help to reinforce the skin's natural moisture barrier as the skin adapts to the beneficial effects of Retinol + HPR.

    Could you tell me more about the ceramide-mimicking phytoceramide found in Retinol + HPR?

    The phytoceramides that we use are specifically chosen to integrate efficiently into the skin's moisture barrier.

    At what age should people look to start to use a retinol-based product and why?

    People should start using Retinol + HPR as soon as they start to notice signs of aging and/or sun damage.

    How should Retinol + HPR be worked into your existing skincare routine? At night before moisturiser?

    Retinol + HPR is gentle enough to be used twice a day (morning and night), but if you are only applying it once, we recommend applying just before bedtime (under your moisturiser).

    Are there any skincare ingredients you would avoid layering it with, or recommend layering with it, and why? Can the Retinol + HPR serum & cream be tolerated together? Which one is best for first-time retinol users?

    Retinol + HPR at the same time as an AHA exfoliant since the latter can make the skin more sensitive to UV and easily irritated. The cream and capsules can be used together, and either one is gentle enough for first time users.
