Does this cream contain retinol?
No, this anti-aging moisturizer does not contain retinol. With our BT Matrix™, an exclusive blend of black tea and rambutan leaf extracts, we’re able to deliver retinol-like performance from naturally derived ingredients, while remaining gentle on all skin types without the known discomfort typical of many retinol products.
How did you prove BT Matrix™ has retinol-like strength?
At the fresh Research Lab, our scientists tested BT Matrix™; on human skin explants using the Perfex vivo model and monitored for 6 days. They then analyzed key biomarkers involved in smoothing wrinkles and firming—the known benefits of retinol—as well as skin discomfort. BT Matrix™; is scientifically proven* to be highly effective in all key biomarkers. BT Matrix™ is also scientifically proven via an instrumental test to visibly reduce the level of wrinkles.
