Product details

A dual action exfoliating serum which removes dead skin cells to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and hydrates and reinforces the skin’s barrier with hyaluronic acid. Combining these two key mechanisms - exfoliating and hydrating encourages optimal skin cell regeneration. Clinical tests have found this Retexturing Activator Serum provides higher results than that of 20% glycolic acid treatment applied daily.

Retexturing Activator is a replenishing, resurfacing and exfoliating serum that helps stimulate new cell turnover and reinforces the skin’s barrier for healthier, more radiant skin. As we age our skin’s cell turnover rate slows down, additionally acne prone skin creates dead skin cell which block pores instead of being shed. This unique serum is highly effective in optimising the skin’s amino acid supply and also promoting cell renewal - the speed in which new cells travel from the lower layers to the top layers of the epidermis and are shed naturally. Optimal cell turnover is needed to produce bright, luminous skin.


This liquid exfoliant provides the optimal level of exfoliation without irritating the skin and contains potent active ingredients to help your skin feel smoother and noticeably clearer:

Hyaluronic Acid: Retains moisture, hydrates and protects skin. HA is naturally occurring substance in skin’s outer layer.
Kombucha: Fermented black tea - Improves skin tone and luminosity.
Hydroxyethyl Urea: Stimulates enzymes which help break down dead skin cells.

The active chemical exfoliant ingredient is in this exfoliating serum is neither AHA, BHA, or glycolic acid - it is Hydroxyethyl Urea. This compound is a naturally occurring substance found in the epidermis and keeps the skin hydrated and protected. Urea is a humectant with potent hydrating properties as well as cell regeneration abilities.
The Retexturing Activator serum utilises these skin identical ingredients to replenish moisture levels, lipids, and repair and regenerate skin.
