Retinol reigns supreme in age defiance and its greatest strength is its ability to rapidly stimulate renewal. However, its biggest drawback is that it often irritates the skin in the process. Few could harness its power for peak performance without irritation until now. Thanks to innovations in skin care science, meet the new gold standard in anti-aging: LG-Retinex.
A Revolution in Retinol
LG-Retinex, found in Serum 16, is unrivaled in potency, penetration and stability. Containing not one, but two retinoids retinol and retinal in high concentrations, this groundbreaking compound is the closest thing to prescription-strength age-defiance. Despite its power, LG-Retinex is remarkably gentle due to its intelligent encapsulation system that helps neutralize retinol's trademark irritation without compromising its star performance.
Better Delivery. Better Results.
Another part of what makes LG-Retinex so dramatically effective is its liposomal delivery system. Designed to pass through various water-and-lipid-soluble barriers within the skin's surfacebarriers nature put in place to keep outside elements out LG-Retinex is able to reach its target destination without sacrificing potency. The addition of glycosaminoglycans, or GAGs, further aids the delivery and retinoid conversion process. Together, these key components bring COSMEDIX's dual retinoid compound to where it can do the most good stimulating renewal and exfoliation to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and advanced signs of aging. For retinol users everywhere, it's a beautiful new day.
COSMEDIX's Serum 16 I The Proof is in the Numbers
In a 6-week clinical study of Serum 16 containing LG-Retinex, users described a reduction in the appearance of deep lines, crow's feet and more.
- – 100% reported a softer, smoother texture.
- – Within four weeks, 75% reported less apparent wrinkles, while 88% reported a healthier, more radiant appearance.

Like skin itself, the balance between exfoliation and hydration is quite delicate, particularly during the cooler, drier months. Maintaining this delicate, seasonal balance is the perfect job for lactic acid. Lactic acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) family, widely recognized for its superior exfoliating and anti-aging properties. But unlike other AHAs (i.e. glycolic, malic, citric and tartaric acids), lactic acid is a unique skin-softening agent, prized for its moisture-rich composition and special ability to accelerate the sloughing process without provoking irritation. Because lactic acid penetrates skin with an ease that renders it safe enough for dry and sensitive skin types, this gentle yet effective exfoliant can be found in a variety of skin treatment products including peels, cleansers, masks and serums.
Lactic acid also acts as a humectant that draws water into the skin’s upper layers to replenish natural reserves. By preventing water loss and helping to preserve the complex skin matrix, skin appears smoother, suppler and younger looking.
Due to the rising consumer demand for botanical ingredients, treating skin with lactic acid is far from a new phenomenon. COSMEDIX purifies lactic acid selects only those molecules that will positively interact with skin cells’ receptors. This chiral correction process ensures that ingredient yields superior results with maximum efficacy while minimizing the possibility of inflammation while being highly effective on sensitive skin. Though lactic acid spa therapies have come a long way. The benefits remain the same: diminished fine lines and wrinkles, reduced age spots and discolorations, improved skin texture and increased collagen production.
