“this body lotion is it! i cannot emphasize how amazing it truly is. i was looking for a lotion that was quick to apply to skin, and would absorb without leaving a greasy feeling afterward. the sake body lotion definitely performed in that sense. i love how quickly my skin absorbs it and the smell is incredibly neutral and does not bother me. i never want to use another lotion again. can't wait to have this as my forever lotion!”

Frequently asked questions

Retinol is beloved for its wide range of benefits. First, it effectively stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving skin texture. Second, retinol's acne-fighting capabilities help unclog pores and prevent breakouts, making it versatile for those concerned with acne and/or signs of aging.

Retinol helps boost collagen production and skin cell turnover, a natural renewal process that happens in your skin, which makes your skin look smoother and younger.

It’s totally up to you! If you are concerned about fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, and/or breakouts, it’s a good time to add retinol to your routine. Retinol, like SPF, has major preventative benefits as well. Early use of retinol can actually help prevent new fine lines and regularly decongest pores.

There are different strengths of retinol based on the percentage of retinol in the formula. 

These lower concentrations are suitable for beginners or those with sensitive skin as they are less likely to cause irritation.

These concentrations are considered moderate and are often used by individuals with some retinol experience. 

These are considered high-strength retinol products and are typically recommended for those with more advanced signs of aging or specific skin concerns. However, they can be more likely to cause irritation so you might expect increased side effects like dryness, flakiness, and redness. At this level, you can also consider meeting with your dermatologist to see if prescription tretinoin is right for you.

We chose to formulate our Retinol Body Cream at 0.05% and clinically tested this for sensitive skin. 

This body cream will immediately moisturize skin. In our consumer perception study, the large majority of participants noticed smoother, healthier skin after 4 weeks of use. However, you're playing the long game (think 4-6 months) with retinol and making it a part of your consistent routine will give you the best results while preventing future fine lines and premature aging from forming. In the short term, you can expect benefits like smoother skin, reduced texture, and a more youthful glow even after the first few weeks.

We formulated our Retinol Body Cream to be easy to use. These tips will help you get started:

  • Apply at night, onto clean, dry skin. 
  • Wear sunscreen or SPF protective clothing during the day to protect your skin and the benefits of retinol

We recommend not to not overdo it with exfoliants while using retinol. This doesn’t mean you have to stop using them - just move exfoliants to your morning routine or alternate your treatment days.

Our Retinol Body Cream has been clinically tested for sensitive skin, with 100% of testers in our study finding it suitable for their sensitive skin. We understand that not all retinol products are safe for sensitive skin, and retinol is a potent ingredient. However, we intentionally formulated our retinol body cream to address this concern. Additionally, to ensure your skin stays comfortable, we've added a soothing blend of shea butter, ceramides and squalene to prevent dryness and flaking.

Retinol Body Cream is clinically-tested for sensitive skin and was made without fragrance, essential oils, and known/common allergens. We recommend consulting a doctor for specific recommendations. If you do use a retinol and have eczema, we would highly encourage using barrier supporting products and ingredients after to soothe skin (think ceramides, moisturizers, etc.).
