Resurfacing Serum

This superior resurfacing serum's SUPERCELLRENEWAL™ process promotes an efficient desquamation cycle, eliminating worn out surface cells at the epidermis, promoting a perpetual renewal process of cell-to-cell turnover, which produces both intensive exfoliation and hydration. This serum helps accelerate the skin's cellular renewal process by retexturizing skin and reducing fine wrinkles and lines, for a younger, brighter, more youthful looking appearance.

A combination of naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) lactic and glycolic, help promote even cell-to-cell differentiation, promoting exfoliation by cellular turnover through a process of desquamation and apoptosis. Enzymes are activated to force a renewed, smooth epidermal surface. HEPES and Hydroxyethyl Urea are blended with botanical extracts (Kombucha) to promote skin health and improve skin elasticity and maximize hydration.

These ingredients will exfoliate, hydrate, renew, and retexture the skin's fabric. Hyaluronic acid boosts hydration levels to keep skin moist, plumped, firm, and hydrated.

This Resurfacing Serum:
  • Exfoliating and replenishing to retexture skin's outer surface
  • Naturally occuring alpha hydroxy acids promote cell-to-cell differentiation
  • Increases moisture to the skin to soften fine lines, keep skin plump, and promote desquamation

This serum contains 27% of Hydroxyethyl Urea with Hydroxyethylpiperazine Ethane Sulfonic acid (HEPES). This formula, which includes glycerin and hyaluronic acid, delivers a maximum amount of moisture to the deepest layers of the stratum corneum, thereby eliminating signs of dehydrated skin. Skin will physically feel plumped, with a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.

Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Lactic and Glycolic acid, comfortably resurfaces the uppermost skin layer (horny layer), initiating cell-to-cell turnover, and promoting an epidermal response to accelerate skin renewal. Visibly diminishes surface lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture, appearance, and health.
