Active Moisturizer

$55.00 USD

(50ml / 1.7oz)

A moisturizer-serum hybrid combining rich hydrating factors, protective antioxidants, and skin-renewing acids to reinvigorate skin in a single step. Designed with normal, combination and oily skin in mind.


  • Hydrate: A restorative complex of replenishing actives led by Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid moisturize and nourish skin.
  • Protect: A fortifying mix of complementary antioxidants anchored by Niacinamide, Vitamin C and Bakuchiol, combat free radicals, improve barrier strength, and reduce signs of aging.
  • Renew: A gentle combination of Glycolic and Salicylic Acids reduce dead skin buildup, remove impurities, and refine skin appearance.

A scientifically sound approach to formula development and ingredient selection, prioritizing actives with proven benefits, sourced in their effective state, and tested against the strictest standards.
  • NIACINAMIDE: AKA Vitamin B3, a multi-beneficial ingredient that fights acne, soothes inflammation, increases barrier strength, and improves skin texture.
  • GLYCOLIC ACID: An Alpha Hydroxy Acid (“AHA”), behaves as a water-soluble exfoliant, renewing the skin's surface while promoting the production of moisture-retaining skin structures.
  • TETRAHEXYLDECYL ASCORBATE: A potent form of the antioxidant Vitamin C, neutralizes free radicals, increases collagen production, and brightens skin.
  • SALICYLIC ACID: A Beta Hydroxy Acid (“BHA”), behaves as an oil-soluble, pore-cleansing exfoliant, reduces blackheads, prevents acne, and soothes inflammation.
  • GLYCERIN: One of the body’s Natural Moisturizing Factors, protects the skin barrier, boosts and extends skin hydration, and prevents water loss.
  • BAKUCHIOL: Unofficially known as a “plant-based retinoid”, works as an anti-aging antioxidant, increasing skin firmness while reducing wrinkles and photodamage.
  • CAFFEINE: A protective antioxidant, reduces free radical formation, soothes and reduces redness, and improves skin tightness and firmness.
  • HYALURONIC ACID: One of the body’s Natural Moisturizing Factors, behaves like a sponge to boost hydration, prevent water loss, and pump water-soluble actives across the skin barrier.

DEVELOPMENT NOTES: Less but better. A product reflecting our desire to reduce the complexity of our skincare routines, without reducing the benefits of an active approach to skin. A daily solution delivering the benefits of a moisturizer as well as a gentle dose of the key actives we’d applied in concentrated form. An active product to anchor the routine. An Active Moisturizer.

DETAILS & USAGE: Experience: Awakening, Hydrating, Smoothing, and Softening Application: Day and night, gently massage an almond-sized amount onto your face and neck. A product that plays as well with others as it does by itself, we recommend applying to recently cleansed, dry or damp skin following any less viscous.
