    What makes this product unique?

    This very potent vitamin A squalane serum professionally includes two well-studied ingredients:-

    a) 1% Retinol - A time-released, highly-stable form of active retinol in a shielding capsule technology to defy aging concerns with minimal irritation. Retinol is a powerhouse cell-communicating agent that carries several benefits, including wrinkle-softening, skin-strengthening, and re-firming, for overall younger-looking appearance.

    b) Squalane - a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the human skin sebum. Squalane has high emollience, is an incomparable hydrator. Consistent use prevents loss of hydration that damages dermal flexibility. This ingredient never clogs pores.

    Note: We recommend pregnant moms to use products containing retinoids only after the breastfeeding stage.

    This is Amazing product, my skin is better than ever, and I'm 41 years old: clearer, no breakouts or dry spots or flaky areas anymore, less wrinkles. Dewy skin, even skintone, list goes on... I also use the Ordinary glycolic toner and marine hyaluronics, those are also excellent products! I never write reviews but now I think I have to: Dear Deciem, never discontinue this <3

    AMAZING !!!

    Miracle product!! This product has made my fine lines diminish and has left my skin so SOFT and plump! It hydrates very nicely and leaves an instant beautiful glow. It did not irritate my skin as this company's products have drastically helped my skin become healthy after years of being damaged. The squalane and jojoba oil balance each other so so so nicely which doesn't create a super oily look. Incredible quality!!


    When I first started using this product, my skin did peel for about a week but that is to be EXPECTED with this product. If used with sunscreen, this product won’t irritate my skin at all. I have noticed a difference in the texture of my skin as it feels more smooth.

    Worth it

    I have been using this every night for the last 6 weeks and I'm only half way through the bottle. Perseverance is key for the first month or so as your skin will be sore and peel however, I now have baby soft skin that has never been in such good condition before! I have always suffered with dry patches but they are gone and blemishes and break outs seem to clear up quicker.
