Apply 1-2 pumps to the face and neck after cleansing before bedtime. No additional products are needed. For daytime, we recommend following with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 20 or greater.
We recommend that first-time retinol users gradually introduce the product into their regime. Limit initial usage to 3 times a week, and gradually increase frequency to every other night, and then every night as tolerated.
Why is this product different from all the other Retinol products on the market?
Our 0.5% Retinol is safely incorporated in a micro-encapsulated time-release system so you can enjoy all the benefits without any irritation or side effects. And because our formula contains 55% Nordic Birch Sap, instead of water, our Retinol is delivered in a nourishing carrier that helps optimise ingredient performance—without any fillers like water that do not provide any skin benefit.
Nordic Birch Sap on its own is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes that help to strengthen your skin and repair your skin barrier. Nordic Birch Sap is therefore the optimal carrier for strong actives like Retinol and can help increase the benefits while keeping your skin safe, strong and protected from any potential side effects.
What other products do I need to optimise my nightly skincare routine?
We agree that skincare can be confusing and overwhelming, but it does not have to be. We designed BirchTech Hybrid™ with that in mind and incorporated all the necessary ingredients to cover your skin’s nighttime needs. All you need to do is cleanse, then apply 1-2 pumps of BirchTech Hybrid™ before bedtime. Unlike other brands, we do not suggest long, complicated routines. Skincare should be easy and should not require complicated layering of different actives & acids. When we took the unnecessary water out of the formula, it gave us the opportunity to create a real powerhouse that can target many different skin issues at the same time.
Why a serum-in-cream?
Innovative formula combines the concentrated potency of a serum with the protective nourishment of a cream to simplify your routine and deliver an effective, gentle overnight rejuvenating treatment in one product.
Do I need to apply BirchTech Hybrid™ in the morning as well?
Retinol is best when applied at night, as it is a potent and effective overnight rejuvenating treatment. We recommend nighttime use only, as the ingredient is known to be less effective with sun exposure.
