The Remarkable Retinoid Strategy of emerginC: Glowing Skin Without the Irritation

The Remarkable Retinoid Strategy of emerginC: Glowing Skin Without the Irritation

To be honest I was a little bit confused why such a big brand did not have high dose Vitamin As when they literally have a cult following for their high dose, clinical Vitamin C serums. So I did a deep dive into every emerginC formulation & learnt something pretty amazing & unique that I have never seen in any other brand and it was the emerginC Retinoid strategy.

We all strive to offer the best to our clients, and with emerginC's unique retinoid strategy, we can do just that. Today, we're going to dive deep into how emerginC's products consistently deliver incredible results without any irritation - a feat that truly sets them apart in the beauty industry.

The Magic of Retinoids

Retinoids, derivatives of Vitamin A, are a crucial part of any effective skincare regimen. They're renowned for their ability to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve uneven skin tone, and enhance overall skin radiance. However, a common concern among spa-goers is the potential irritation that can come with high-dose retinoid products.

Retinoids and Skin Cells

Retinoids work by binding to specific receptors in our skin cells. Once they bind, they affect the behaviour of these cells – encouraging cell turnover, stimulating collagen production, and preventing the breakdown of collagen, among other things. This, in turn, helps reduce signs of aging, improve skin tone, and provide an overall rejuvenated appearance.

Delivery of Retinoids

The way retinoids are delivered into the skin is crucial. One common issue with retinoids is their potential to cause irritation, especially with higher concentrations. However, studies have found that lower, consistent doses of retinoids can be just as effective as higher doses, with significantly less irritation.

This is where emerginC's strategy shines. By incorporating retinoids into multiple products, they offer a 'drip-feed' effect. This means that clients receive small, consistent doses of retinoids throughout their skincare routine, rather than a single, high-concentration dose.

Research supports this approach, with studies showing that consistent, lower-dose retinoid use can lead to similar improvements in skin appearance as higher doses. Moreover, this strategy significantly reduces the risk of skin irritation, making retinoid use more comfortable for clients.

Advanced Formulations

The use of advanced delivery systems, such as lipid encapsulation, can also enhance the efficacy of retinoids. This technology encapsulates the retinoid molecule in a fat-soluble shell, helping it penetrate the skin's outer barrier more effectively. This results in better absorption, increased effectiveness, and less irritation.

To sum up, the science supports the benefits of retinoids for skincare, and the delivery strategy employed by emerginC aligns with these findings. This strategy of 'drip-feeding' retinoids in lower concentrations across a range of products is backed by scientific research, making it a proven method to deliver effective skincare without the associated irritation.

Top emerginC Products with Retinoids

Among the popular emerginC products that incorporate this innovative retinoid strategy are the Multi-Vitamin & Retinol Serum, Hyper-vitalizer Cream, Hyper-vitalizer Mask, Vitamin C & Retinol Mask, Earth Ultra-hydrating Phytelene Mask, Glow Force Mask, Earth Cream, and Complexion Perfection. Each of these products are designed to deliver the perfect balance of retinoids and other skin-loving ingredients, ensuring your clients' skin is consistently nourished and revitalised.

Of particular note are the emerginC peels: the Triple Threat, Triple Threat Professional Strength, and Triple Threat Extra Strength Peel.
