Kahai oil: is a luxury cold extracted oil from the nuts of a majestic Amazonian tree “Cacay” with natural anti-ageing effects. It is rich in vitamins, linoleic acid, oleic acid and retinol. It re-energises the skin and is absorbed quickly, leaving a dry finish.
Our 1.2% RETINOL COMPLEX Booster is your skin’s dream date in a small bottle: We recommend using it in the evening because the retinol complex supports the skin’s regeneration process which is most active during the night.
Mix it! Mix the 1.2% RETINOL COMPLEX Booster with your night cream.
Layer it! Intensify the effect by applying the booster straight to your skin and then follow with a night moisturiser.
Retinol is a very effective active ingredient in skincare. If used improperly, skin irritations can occur very quickly and easily. When first using retinol, please be careful to adjust your usage according to the reaction of your skin. We recommend starting with a very small amount of the product 1 – 2 times a week, and gradually increasing the amount and frequency once your skin has adapted well.
Please note: It is not recommended to use retinol during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Please check with your doctor.
For external use only. A small amount is sufficient. Avoid eye and mouth area. Apply sun protection during daytime. Store away from direct sunlight.
EXPERT TIPS AND TRICKS
Want to mix several boosters?
Our oil-based 1.2% RETINOL COMPLEX Booster contains highly effective ingredients. These effective ingredients and the oil-based formula make mixing a bit tricky so we recommend layering retinol instead – if your skin tolerates it well.
As you may know, water-based formulas penetrate the skin better when they are applied before oil-based formulas. That means: Apply your favourite water-based booster* first and follow with the 1.2% RETINOL COMPLEX Booster. Let it sit for a few moments and then use your moisturiser as a last step.
*FYI: Our 10% VITAMIN C, 2% HYALURON, 10% NIACINAMIDE and 5% PEPTIDE COMPLEX Boosters are water-based.
DID YOU KNOW?
For our 1.2% RETINOL COMPLEX Booster, we are using different interacting retinol ingredients. Therefore, it is considered a complex. Pure retinol is already effective starting from very low concentrations of 0.025% and is safe to use in concentrations up to 1% – we decided to use a very effective amount of 0.25% for the ideal balance between efficiency and low irritation risk. In addition to that, we included retinyl acetate, an inactive form of retinol which is milder for your skin.
