Yellow Moonbeam Retinal ElixirBack to Dry Skin Type
For dramatically firmer, clearer, luminous skin
Wake up to luminous skin with a luxurious overnight elixir that combines encapsulated, clean Retinal (BHA & BHT free), along with natural forms of Vitamin A - Bakuchiol and Alpine Mountain Rosehip – that work synergistically to supercharge cellular turnover and reveal radiant new cells for a youthful glow. Healing New Zealand botanicals such as Native Marine Sea Algae, Alpine Rosehip and Harakeke Native Flaxseed are added along with clinically proven actives; Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Squalene, and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to refine skin, making pores look smaller and improving skin texture.
This punchy, bright yellow elixir glides on with a silky pillowcase feel. Skin will feel luxuriously hydrated and plump. The light scent is evocative of night-scented blooms that reveal scent and luminosity at dusk.

After washing face at night, wait a few minutes until your skin is completely dry then apply over face and neck. When it feels like it’s all soaked in, follow with your favourite moisturiser. Do not use if breastfeeding.
New to Retinoids/ Vitamin A?
Start out using it every third day for two weeks, then every other day for two weeks, gradually working your way up to nightly use. Don’t exfoliate on the nights you use retinoids because it may cause irritation. Always always wear SPF during the day when on a retinoid programme.
Pro tip: Make sure to start with dry skin. While we encourage moisturising products to be used on damp skin to help the actives absorb better, this does not apply to retinoids - they are powerful enough on dry skin. Also, consistency is key - we start to see skin-smoothing results after a few weeks, but the real hallelujah moment is after about three to six months of use.
0.1% Clean, Encapsulated Retinal: the ‘new-kid-on-the-retinoid-block’ that works 11 times faster than retinol but without the irritation
This advanced retinal reconstructs skin overnight to reverse sun damage and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and promotes an overall smoothness and evenness of facial skin tone. Due to the unique encapsulation technology, the potent power of this ingredient is protected until it meets your skin.
2% Bakuchiol: skin smoothing + works synergistically with Retinal
Plant-based antioxidant that offers similar collagen-boosting properties to retinoids but takes a different pathway. By combining bakuchiol and retinal, we multiply the anti-wrinkle, skin-firming effects.
5% Niacinamide: improve overall skin texture
A type of B3 that works with your skin's natural chemistry to improve overall skin texture by rebuilding a lipid layer, minimising the appearance of pores, and preventing UV damage and inflammation.
3% Squalene: locks in moisture
Super hydrating natural emollient to lock moisture into your skin and relieve dry patches.
2 x Hyaluronic Acids: hydrating
Two different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid to supercharge hydration and give a dewy look on the surface of the skin, as well as hydrating deeper layers of the skin for lasting hydration throughout the day.
2% Native Marine Sea Algae: hydrate & brighten skin
Hand-harvested off the Southern coast of the South Island of New Zealand. This sea algae is pumped full of antioxidants rich minerals from pristine streams that come up from Antarctica, providing long-lasting hydration and skin brightening benefits.
2% NZ Alpine Rosehip: nourish & heal skin
A natural form of Vitamin A and essential fatty acids, especially omega-3 (linolenic acid) and omega-6 (linoleic acid) to soften skin and improve skin barrier function. Wild-harvested from Wanaka.
1% Harakeke Native Flax: seal in moisture
Packed with nutritious linoleic acid (omega 6), which helps maintain our skin’s natural barrier, and both hydrates and moisturises.
