A Safe Alternative to Retinoids

We get many clients who contact us after having an adverse reaction to products containing retinoids. We are never surprised. As we wrote in a blog post last year – retinoids are a controversial ingredient in the skin care world: they are known to cause chronic inflammation and thin the skin over time, which can lead to long term damage.

After much consideration and research, Vasseur decided to instead use the safer, natural alternative to retinoids — alpha hydroxy acids. We put the most effective alpha hydroxy acids (lactic, glycolic and mandelic) in a potent cocktail called Reveal 10. Reveal 10 is one of our most powerful products that is effective in treating fine lines, acne, and pigmentation.

Here is how alpha hydroxy acids work:

Alpha hydroxy acids are highly effective chemical exfoliants. They cause dead skin cells in the epidermis to separate from one another, allowing new skin cells to resurface. Studies have shown that alpha hydroxy acids also encourage elastin and collagen production, two components that contribute to firm, smooth and toned skin. Skin benefits associated with alpha hydroxy acids include wrinkle reduction, increased smoothness, reduction in skin discoloration and sun damage. Though benefits will be noticeable within 2 weeks of use, best results are obtained over the course of several months.

Please note that becuase Reveal 10 is a very powerful product it can cause initial tingling when applied. This is normal and will fade within 2-5 uses. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend our Mandelic Acid Serum – a gentler alternative.

    how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.

    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  2. hello there and thank you for your info – I have definitely picked up
    something new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues
    using this website, as I experienced to reload the web site many times
    previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if

    1. Well, of course they don’t. Aging skin is not simethong that can really be arrested by any beauty product, no matter what the claims.However, the effects of aging can be minimized and perhaps delayed a bit. I like L’Oreal’s Revitalift Deep-Set Wrinkle Repair, combined with Estee Lauder’s Perfectionist (CP+) Targeted Deep Wrinkle Filler. On top of these, I always wear a moisturizer including a sunscreen 15 SPF, at least.My dermatologist likes RoC products, so I use the Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, on top of which I slather Nivea’s Essentially Enriched Body Lotion. It may be made for the body, but basic moisturizers are all the same.I’m not suffering from deep wrinkles yet, but I have some wrinkles, and it may be that I can keep them at bay for a while. Ultimately, however, it’s a losing battle. We all have to face that realistically.The Estee Lauder product really is effective. I’ve seen a significant difference. The major problem with all these products is that they may flake and pill when you try to apply make-up on top of them, and then you have to use a brush or tissue to lightly remove this flaking or pilling. The cosmetic companies haven’t quite figured out to handle that tendency.
