Ingredients of the Month

Colorless Carotenoids

When it comes to antioxidants, carotenoids are king. These potent anti-aging antioxidants come in a colored form such as lycopene from tomatoes, making them perfect for products where a faint hint of rosy color is desired, and a clear form called colorless carotenoids which come from algae. These are particularly powerful because they don’t “die” after absorbing UV light; in fact, they have an endless capacity to absorb. This makes them perfect for use in facial sunscreens.

Find colorless carotenoids (called dunaliella salina extract on the ingredient list) in Rodan + Fields® ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25. And look for lycopene in Rodan + Fields ANTI-AGE Lip Renewing Serum.


Palmitoyl Oligopeptide

This peptide is clinically proven to smooth lips and reduce lip wrinkles, making it the perfect ingredient for maintaining youthful-looking skin and lips. Made up of proteins, our lips need extra help as we age to stay full and defined and so providing them with peptides (a building block of protein) is essential for maintaining and restoring their natural fullness and beauty.

Find palmitoyl oligopeptide in Rodan + Fields ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25 and in Rodan + Fields ANTI-AGE Lip Renewing Serum.

    Great info to share for those who want to know “how” and “why” it works! (Thankfully most of our customers are just happy with the results…it really “works”). I love having the resources handy to address all types of customers.
