USE OF PRODUCT
Can this product help prevent premature signs of aging?
Early use of our Kleem Organics® Retinol Cream will help to combat fine lines and wrinkles before they become noticeable. With consistent and continual use, Retinol is effective in fighting the signs of aging.
Is it normal to experience redness and irritation while using this product?
Yes. If you experience redness, irritation or excessive dryness, reduce usage frequency. Retinol may cause some skin types to peel initially.
Can pregnant women use this product?
No. We do not recommend using Retinol while pregnant or breast-feeding. Studies have shown that high amounts of Vitamin A during pregnancy may have detrimental effects.
Will Retinol cause skin to become dry?
Retinol may initially cause dryness and peeling in some skin types. However, Kleem Organics® Retinol Cream contains bio-active ingredients, which help boost skin’s hydration levels.
Can I use your Retinol cream with other products?
Yes. It can be combined with other products. Our Kleem Organics® Retinol Cream is commonly combined with our Kleem Organics® Vitamin C Serum.
How Long Until I See Results?
Retinoids take time to work, approximately 6 to 7 weeks. Most people don’t see any results the first few weeks, but everyone’s skin is different. Some people get good results right away while others have to be more patient. However, benefits from retinoids usually peak after one year of consistent use.
Can you use this product around your eyes?
While your eyes are more sensitive, it is okay to use our Kleem Organics® Retinol Cream under your eye area to diminish fine wrinkles there (don’t put it on your eyelids though). When you first start using it under your eye, it is common for any fine lines to look creepy and be even more pronounced. But, it should get better after a while. If your eye is too sensitive to the retinoid, you can try buffering the product or just not using any near your eyes.
Can I use AHA or BHA with your Retinol Product?
A common misperception about retinol is that it exfoliates skin. Retinol, in any of its forms, does not do the same thing as AHA or BHA exfoliants.
AHAs and BHA ingredients exfoliate the dead surface layers of skin, improving signs of environmental damage and hydrating for renewed smoothness. Retinol doesn’t work that way.
The confusion arises because retinol does cause flaking skin for some people. When they see the flakes they assume the retinol is also exfoliating their skin. Flaking skin is not necessarily a sign of exfoliation. The AHAs and BHA help skin do what it should be doing naturally, and you don’t notice your dead skin cells when they shed naturally; instead, you just see a smooth, renewed skin surface and a healthy glow. AHAs and BHA help skin shed the way it did when you were young.
For the best anti-aging benefits, it’s ideal to use both an exfoliant and a retinol cream as part of your regular skincare routine.
