What’s the concentration (or how much) of Retinol in Illuminate?
The retinol in Illuminate was never meant as a stand alone ingredient, it is just one of over a dozen active ingredients used for brightening and improving uneven skin tone. The Illuminate was formulated to address various signs of aging skin - dryness, uneven skin tone, firmness, decrease the appearance of lines, wrinkles, smooth texture, brightening and radiance. The formula is a cutting edge product that produces results but has to be tolerated for all skin types and textures even for sensitive skin; therefore the concentration of the retinol has had to be carefully modulated to meet these specifications. The retinol comes in a form of a patented complex designed to maximize absorption and efficacy.
Use of full strength retinols and Retin-A cuts the pool of participants significantly as most people can’t tolerate it therefore they stop using it. In this case, even at low doses, it is still creating positive anti-aging effects specifically because it is tolerated and people use it 2x a day for time.
For those who want the extra retinol or are already using it, you can use it in conjunction with Illuminate. You would apply it after Rinse.
I am 75 years old and have always taken care of my skin. I have now been using the Trifecta products for 14 months faithfully every morning and every night. I do not see any new wrinkles appearing but do see a glow to my skin and have even had compliments!! I LOVE the simplicity of three products and certainly makes it easy traveling! Thank you Dr. Karam for educating us in quality skin care and providing the products for us to use. Gail
I've started using the Trifecta system for only about 1.5 weeks. So far I'm amazed with the overall brightness and smoothness of my skin in such a small period of time. The Illuminate Cream has been a game changer. I used to use a stand alone Retinol cream in the past which left me with redness and irritation so I decided to stop using it. Illuminate hasn't made my skin inflamed or red at all...its rich with moisture too and doesn't leave my face dry or flaky, including the neck area as well. I've also been using the KaramMD exfoliator alongside the Trifecta . It has helped slough off old skin cells revealing brighter and even tone skin after just 3-4 uses! I'm hooked. Looking forward to a future journey with KaramMD products. :)
