Though fermentation may make you think of kombucha, it’s also an innovative ingredient in skincare. Fermentation breaks things down into smaller parts making the ingredient more bioavailable to the skin for better penetration and generally good tolerability without irritation. Our Arctic Marine Ferment helps neutralize the visible effects of blue light and is found in a few of our products, including our NEW Peptight™ Tightening Neck Serum Roller.
Beauty watchers are saying Niacin, also known as Vitamin B3, will be the ingredient of the year for its supportive, all-around skin-loving goodness; even though it’s been around for a minute, it’s having a moment. This game-changing ingredient makes up our proprietary NIA-114™, our optimized form of Niacin/VitaminB3 clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier and supercharge the performance of other components for visibly transformed, healthy-looking skin. This compound is found in all our products, so choose your StriVectin skincare adventure to enjoy the benefits of our science throughout our entire line-up.
As a gentler alternative to Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), BHAs or Beta Hydroxy Acids are trending and have always been a fan favorite. This chemical exfoliant eliminates dead skin cells and creates a soft, smooth texture and a brighter complexion. Ideal for blemish-prone or oily skin, this acid also works to clarify and tighten the pore lining while absorbing excess surface oil.
And you may have seen your favorite beauty editor talking about enzymes. Typically sourced from fruits and vegetables, enzymes work to exfoliate, brighten, and smooth skin gently. Plus, they are even gentler alternatives to Alpha-hydroxy or beta-hydroxy acids. BHAs and enzymes can be found in our NEW Super-Shrink Pore Minimizing Serum.
