Serum 16 features hydrators coupled with retinol to target signs of aging while protecting the skin's moisture barrier function. This innovative formula helps reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone, smooth wrinkles and boost moisture without causing redness, dryness or irritation.
Cosmedix Serum 16 Featuring LG-Retinex is the closest thing to prescription strength age defiance without a prescription. This serum contains LG-Retinex — a proprietary encapsulation of retinol and retinaldehyde — that helps carry the active ingredients to where they need to be, for the best possible action. Great for normal to dry skin, this serum is ideal for imbalanced ageing skin, with concerns including crow's feet, fine lines and medium to deep wrinkles.

- Acne is caused when oil, hair and dead skin cells clog pores. Ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and AGP Complex help stimulate cell turnover to curb breakouts.
- Improved texture and proper product absorption is due to exfoliation. When the surface layer of the skin is removed, fresh skin is revealed and can absorb active ingredients easier.
- LG-Retinex – a microencapsulated retinol for drier, sensitive skin – encourages skin renewal to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and imperfections.
- For those with severe gluten sensitivities or Dermatitis Herpetiformis, rest assured this product is gluten free.
