Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is the proper way to store my Strawberry Serum?
Keep in a cool, dry place. Do not keep in direct light.
Can you use it day and night?
Yes! If this is your first time using an acid treatment we recommend patch testing first and gradually introducing the serum into your routine. Our formula is gentle enough to be used either day or night or both, even with the high percentage of acids. The encapsulated salicylic acid we chose is closer to skin’s natural pH level while the mandelic acid is a larger exfoliating molecule that penetrates skin slowly - both producing real results with minimized irritation.
If used during the day, make sure to wear sunscreen at the end of your skincare routine.
Are there any other ingredients to avoid when using this serum?
This formula pairs great with most ingredients, except benzoyl peroxide. There’s a common misconception that salicylic acid (BHA) cannot be used while using retinol products, which is not the case. The two ingredients can actually work synergistically together to be more effective. People with oily skin that are not particularly sensitive may be able to tolerate using both on a daily basis. People with more dry or sensitive skin, can ease into using both ingredients into their routine by using a salicylic acid formula in the day and retinol at night. As always, we recommend patch testing.
