COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I’ve heard Retinol can irritate your skin, are the results worth it?
Retinol is a powerful ingredient, and in some cases depending on factors like usage frequency, percentage and formula composition you might potentially experience side effects like irritation but the results this ingredient gives are unlike any other ingredients currently on the market. Retinol is scientifically proven to help boost collagen production, and encourage healthy cell turnover to minimise the appearance of visible skin ageing like uneven skin tone, dullness, lack of firmness and fine lines.
The good news? There are different type of retinoids and all formulas are not created equal. Our Retinol is based on a nano-delivery system incorporated in small capsules made from a natural sugar complex. The system deliver Retinol gradually so that a sustained and long lasting release is achieved which prevents any sort of irritation to your skin while you are still getting all the benefits. Even people with sensitive skin and/or acne can use our product.
Why is this product different from all the other Retinol products on the market?
Like mentioned in the question above, our 0.5% Retinol is safely incorporated in microcaps for a time-released system so you can enjoy all the benefits without any irritation or side effects. Most skincare products in general are diluted with 70-80% water – you can easily check your own products if you see the ingredient “aqua” in the top of the ingredient list. Water might be needed to create an emulsion (cream) but it does not actually do anything to your skin and is a cheap filler ingredient commonly used. Instead of water, BirchTech Hybrid is uniquely made from a 55% Nordic Birch sap base that easily penetrates the skin and delivers all the actives exactly where they need to be for optimal results. Birch sap on its own is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and minerals that helps to strengthen your skin and repair your skin barrier. Birch sap is there for the optimal carrier for strong actives like Retinol and can help to increase the benefits while keeping your skin safe, strong and protected from any potential side effects.
Is Retinol ok to use on acne prone skin?
BirchTech Hybrid works well on all skin types. The formula contains 0.5% Retinol which can help with unclogging pores, and reduce acne outbreaks by preventing dead cells from clogging pores. Keeping dead skin cells on the move will also help with keeping pores clear & open so other potential topical acne treatments can penetrate more effectively. Vitamin C and the natural extracts will also fight acne-induced inflammation.
Is pairing Retinol with Vitamin C actually a good idea?
It’s a common myth that Retinol cannot be used together with Vitamin C. If the product is formulated in a proper way, Vitamin C and Retinol can further enhance each other’s benefits. Since our Retinol is protected in microcaps it won’t interfere with Vitamin C and both actives remain intact until they penetrate the skin surface. On a side note, when Vitamin A (retinol), C and E are formulated together skin studies has shown that they have very powerful antioxidant effects, up to four times more compared to when used on their own. We have chosen percentages of each vitamin wisely to maximize the effects while preventing potential skin irritation and side effects.
When can I start using a Retinol?
We recommend starting using a Retinol product at age 25, since your body will then produce around 1% less collagen per year. However, around the age of 50, collagen levels drop significantly and visible aging accelerates. Therefor a Retinol is recommended for all women aged 25 and above.
What other products do I need to optimize 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, and then apply 1-2 pumps of the formula before bedtime. Unlike other brands we do not have a big line of skincare and confuse our customers with long complicated routines. Skincare should be easy and not require a chemist degree how to layer different actives and acids. When we took out the unnecessary water from the formula, it gave us the opportunity to create a real powerhouse that can target many different skin issues at the same time.
