RFp3 is our proprietary, multi-tasking peptide technology that combines oligopeptide-10 to kill bacteria, tetrapeptide-16 to block inflammation, and a protease inhibitor to maximize the effectiveness of these peptides and prolong the treatment benefits. It’s so effective, it’s clinically-proven to decrease redness, peeling, dryness, stinging and overall irritation within five  minutes of use.

Rodan + Fields® RFp3 peptide technology is available exclusively in SOOTHE Sensitive Skin Treatment (ideal as an after-shave balm) and ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides SPF 20 (for no-mess, on-the-go sunscreen application).


These chlorophyll-containing organisms provide water-binding properties to hydrate skin’s surface. Algae also provide antioxidants to reduce free radical damage that can accelerate aging.

Find hydrating algae in Rodan + Fields ENHANCEMENTS Body Micro-Dermabrasion.

Confessions of a Dermatologist Common Questions

    Oh my goodness – I can’t say enough about either of these products. They are amazing! Soothe Sensitive Skin Treatment goes every where we go, just in case. We have personally witnessed amazing results on family members that were under dermatological care and getting no relief! Mineral Peptides?? Who worries about sunscreen for your face anymore…not me! I love it! I even use it on my arms, especially the left one that used to get sunburned while driving. I know it works good because I missed a spot one day! Thank you Drs. Rodan + are amazing too!

    what do you recommend for lips . chapped and wrinkled?

    • 4. Derm RF  |  June 3, 2010 at 10:21 pm

      We recommend Rodan + Fields ENHANCEMENTS Lip Micro-Dermabrasion. It is an effective and convenient exfoliation stick created specifically for your lips, one of the areas of your face most prone to showing early signs of aging. This Lip Micro-Dermabrasion removes dead skin cells and exfoliates flaky skin on and around the lip area in just a few swipes, making lips look and feel more defined and youthful by renewing the surface and reducing lipstick bleeding.
