Your Exponent System Questions, Answered

Share on:
Exponent Starter System

For so long, activated-in-the-moment skincare was a practice strictly reserved for estheticians as a way to fuel clients’ skin with the most potent ingredients possible. Now that we’ve brought this capability to your everyday experience, there’s bound to be a short learning curve. After all, our patented Self-Activated Skincare is a departure from typical skincare that’s been bottled up and watered down (and therefore starts degrading from the moment you open it.)

For the first time, Exponent puts the freshest, most potent active ingredients in proven, precise doses at your fingertips, so you can self-activate and apply them in their most effective form every single day.

This is a new concept in skincare and we want to ensure you are armed with knowledge to achieve mind-blowing results.

Here are some answers to the questions we get asked frequently.



1. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACTIVE POWDER ADD-ONS AND ACTIVE POWDER REFILLS?

You always start with Active Powder Add-Ons.

Exponent Beauty Add On

The Active Powder Add-On is your initial ticket to a new serum– let’s say Vitamin C or Retinol- to be used with the Hydrator and white Base that is included in your Starter System. Add-Ons include: 

  1. Active Powder (colored glass jar) 
  2. Globe (clear acrylic piece)
  3. Precision Dispenser wheel (white screw top) 
  4. White Rubber Cap

This ensures you don’t have to trade the dispenser out (can you imagine switching out open powders? We would never!) between two different Active Powders and avoids any degradation. Remember: You can use multiple Active Powder Add-Ons with the same Self-Activating Base & Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator.

When your existing Powder jar runs out, go for Active Powder Refills.

When you run out of an Active Powder, you will replenish with an Active Powder Refill of the same kind. Just pop it into the Globe & Powder Dispenser wheel you already have from the Add-On. 


2. WHAT OTHER PRODUCTS CAN I USE WITH MY EXPONENT?

Exponent Superior Serums can be used to elevate any skincare routine. We suggest applying your products in this order for optimal results:

  • Cleanser
  • Exponent Superior Serum
  • Moisturizer
  • SPF in daytime 


3. WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS I’M USING?

Retinol

CoQ10

Green Tea

Resveratrol

Probiotics



4. ARE EXPONENT PRODUCTS RECYCLABLE?

Absolutely—all of our packaging and componentry is made with circularity top of mind. 

Our outer packaging and shipping materials come from an FSC-Certified paper mill, which means it comes from post-consumer recycled or reused materials. Our glass jars are painted only on the surface, so the color melts off in the recycling process. This prevents any issues that sometimes can occur when recycling colored glass. Our jar caps are made with aluminum, a material that can be infinitely recycled without losing any quality over time. And even our refillable and reusable Activator Base, Globe & Dispenser can be recycled at end of life through our hard-to-recycle partnership with Pact Collective



5. DO EXPONENT PRODUCTS HAVE FRAGRANCE?

Our Active Powders do not contain any fragrances, but they do include a trace amount of essential oils used at a low level (<1%) that have been tested as safe for sensitive skin.

  • Brightening Boost Vitamin C Active Powder: Mandarin orange essential oil with a subtle citrus aroma
  • Time Rewind Retinol Active Powder: Lavender essential oil with soothing properties and a subtle, calming, herbal aroma
  • Firming Filter CoQ10 Active Powder: Rose essential oil with a subtle floral aroma
  • Green Tea Resveratrol Active Powder: Chamomile essential oil with soothing properties and a subtle apple-like aroma
  • Clear Comeback Probiotic Enzyme Active Powder: Rosemary leaf essential oil with purifying properties and a subtle, refreshing, herbal aroma
