We’ve been quiet on here but haven’t been sleepin on you…we’re smashing out lots of newness that will be coming your way over the next few weeks. Get ready for some leveled-up formulas and packaging worthy of holding the goods.  Excited is an understatement.  Stay tuned,
Interested in DNA repair enzymes?  We’ve got them in Night Shift.  Not just a pigment-correcting treatment, Night Shift supports holistic skin balance to deliver unprecedented radiance and resilience simultaneously:  + less visible redness,
+ stronger, healthier-looking skin barrier,
+ calmed appearance of blemishes,
+ amped-up overall luminosity.  Find more on DNA repair enzymes in our guides! We’ll share to our stories for easy access.  Are DNA repair enzymes on your radar?  🧬
We mentioned a few tweaks that are in the works…  By popular demand,  𝘸𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘊-𝘚𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘭𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘢 𝘵𝘰 𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘪𝘳𝘭𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘱𝘶𝘮𝘱 𝘴𝘺𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘮!  You may know that the existing formula is quite runny and so not the most conducive to a pump with its vibrant red color + white packaging (the crime scene vibe is not it 🙃).  Rather than add more of a typical gelling agent to boost viscosity, we wanted to find something that would add to formula function as well.  The perfect addition to C-Shield’s already multitasking formula: tremella polysaccharide, aka 𝘀𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗵𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗺!  Snow mushroom’s use in traditional Chinese medicine goes back to the Tang Dynasty—both consumed as a healing remedy and touted as a fountain of youth for skin care. Snow mushroom’s skin-boosting talents are vast:
 / incredibly hydrating
 / antioxidant + cellular protection
 / soothing anti-inflammatory agent
 / luscious texture with a soft, non-tacky finish  Snow mushroom adds that little bit of *sumthin sumthin* to take C-Shield the next level. Coming soon, the new formula is slightly more viscous, even more hydrating, but still with that thirst-quenching featherlight application you love.  Have you tried snow mushroom? Excited about the switch from dropper to pump?

We’re constantly taking in your feedback. We want to make some of the best products to have ever graced your skin, and we think the best way to do that is to listen.  Listen to what you love, what you need, and what you’d like to be tweaked.  Ctrl Z has given us the perfect opportunity to listen to you, and so an upgraded formula will be released in a few weeks!  Ctrl Z, as it stands, contains glycolic acid. It’s the most potent (and irritating) AHA, and lots of skins simply don’t benefit from its intensity.  So, we set out on a mission to find a substitute for the glycolic acid. It had to be just as effective, but without the potential to irritate.  Enter: yeast oligopeptide. Shown to be 𝙢𝙤𝙧𝙚 effective than glycolic acid with 𝙯𝙚𝙧𝙤 chance of irritation.  How does it do it? This yeast oligopeptide is a non-acid exfoliant. Direct acids, like glycolic, break down the “glue” between cells indiscriminately—they don’t care if those skin cells are ready to go or not—they’re leaving the party.  Yeast oligopeptide works by boosting skin’s natural exfoliation system to help it work more efficiently and effectively, and the results are very impressive.  With the reduced irritation potential, our testing has shown Ctrl Z can be used more frequently for most—up to every other night. This means more potent results, faster.  We’ve also taken this opportunity to tweak texture. Now a more lightweight, true emulsion that sinks in easily with a silkier finish. We couldn’t be more excited to share this exciting formula with you!  On that note, if you love the glycolic formula, current stock on the site is the last we have—so snag it while you can!  Cheers to always improving, and bringing you the best products we possibly can. Are you as excited as we are?

A little piece on clean vs. chemical in cosmetics. Do you have to pick a side?  Nature gives us some amazing tools to work with and we should be appreciative of those things. But, just because we love extracts and plant oils, it doesn’t mean synthetic “chemicals” are on a mission to poison us slowly through our skin.  Here’s the deal. They’re ALL chemicals. Everything. If your skincare doesn’t contain chemicals, then it does not exist. It’s not even tangible matter.  So how do we know what is “clean” and “dirty” in skincare? Simple. There’s no such thing. That said, we are all different. We have different preferences and needs and thats the beauty of it, right? We can each choose the blend of chemicals that will benefit our skin most.  Synthetic things made in a lab can come with many benefits, too: stable and repeatable, you can be confident in the effect they’ll have on skin. They can support functionality and shelf life of plant materials. Also, lab-made nature-identical things can help us avoid over-harvesting and messing with fragile ecosystems.  Love plant-derived ingredients? Amazing. Prefer well-studied synthetics? Cool. We happen to think they’re better together.  What about you?

Love this. I wake up with an incredible glow every time I use it. It’s unlike some of the other exfoliators I’ve tried in that it’s both powerful and gentle, which is perfect for my skin.

This product has an amazing ingredient list and is just lovely to apply to my skin. It has the right texture and it layers nicely with the other products I use. I have not tested this just on its own at night, so I can’t give it as high a rating as Beam Me Up, just based on my experience. I also don’t struggle as much with hyperpigmentation, but use this because it has an azelaic acid derivative, which I think is good for preventing acne.
