Moth Bean, A Natural Retinol for Glowing Skin

Natural retinol is a great ingredient to use if you have acne or want more of a youthful complexion.

Retinol is a great ingredient to use if you have acne or want more of a youthful complexion. This vitamin A derivative is proven to boost collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help with clogged or congested pores and discoloration.

The problem, though, is despite all it’s skin revitalization benefits, retinol is highly unstable. When exposed to UV light, it can degrade rapidly. It can also cause irritation for those with sensitive skin along with peeling and redness. Products that typically contain a retinol usually advise that you are diligent about using sunscreen afterwards as it can make your skin more vulnerable.

In our Supermoon Serum, we use a botanical retinol which has the same effects as retinol but without the drawbacks. It’s a highly stable alternative to regular retinol and our skin is able to tolerate it a lot better, too!

Our botanical retinol is derived from the moth bean (also called the dew bean), which is actually a legume rather than a vitamin A derivative. These light brown protein-rich pods contain seeds that are full of antioxidants and other skin related benefits.

Moth bean extract sinks into the skin and is able to jump start collagen production and boost cell renewal.

Dew bean also contains phenolic compounds like caffeic acid, cinnamic acid, ferulic acid and kaempferol which all protect your skin against free radicals and UV damage.

If you are struggling with acne or congested skin, Supermoon Serum is a great option for you. Since this serum is water-based, there are no oils or waxes that could further clog pores and trigger breakouts. The dew bean extract is also fantastic at helping with age-related skin features, such as fine lines and a loss of skin elasticity.

This product is safe to use day or night.
