We are highlighting one of Angela’s favorite products! IS Clinical Active Serum!

Why is this a CCSD favorite? It is great for ANYONE, but particularly great for pregnant or nursing patients, patients that can’t tolerate a retinol, or patients that like to lean more towards the natural, botanical side of the spectrum with their skincare products.

What to know about IS Clinical Active Serum?

  • Resurfacing serum – Gets the “retinol” results, without the downtime
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishes the appearance of uneven skin tone
  • Excellent for blemish-prone skin
  • Smooths and softens the skin, enhances hydration
  • Gives the appearance of smaller pores
  • Provides both rapid and long-term results

Key Ingredients

  • Sugar Cane Extract (source of glycolic acid): gently exfoliates the skin for a renewed complexion
  • Bilberry Extract (source of lactic acid): a natural exfoliant with moisturizing properties
  • White Willow Bark Extract (source of salicylic acid): exfoliates the skin and deep-cleanses pores
  • Arbutin & Mushroom Extract: assists in minimizing the appearance of uneven skin tone while brightening the overall complexion

Directions
