Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Where percentage trumps perception and measured results are a thing. Let's get clinical.
FINE LINES & WRINKLES REDUCTION
100% of subjects showed a clinically significant decrease in global facial fine lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks
DISCOLORATION & TONE IMPROVEMENT
83% of subjects showed clinically significant improvement in skin discoloration after 4 weeks
INCREASE IN FIRMNESS
Across all subjects, there was a 36% average increase in skin firmness for the average participant after 4 weeks
An independent clinical testing facility ran a 4 week study in which 30 female subjects completed testing. Subjects were evaluated with Visia Image Analysis Pro, Cutometer. Upon completion of the testing period, data was analyzed and evaluated.
Energizes cell activity, stimulates collagen production, evens skin tone, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin firmness.
WHY WE LOVE IT
“I know you’re not supposed to have a favorite child but I am so incredibly proud of our CoQ10 serum. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles in addition to having brightening benefits (almost like a cross between Retinol and Vitamin C). When I’ve watched customers try it, I see their reaction to the instantaneous ‘filter’ effect on the skin — it’s got this velvety almost blurring finish to it. No wonder this ingredient is used so frequently in best-in-class Japanese skincare.” — Liz Whitman, Founder
Replenishes cell moisture, reduces appearance of wrinkles, accelerates wound healing, and helps skin appear plumper, dewier, and more hydrated.
4 MOLECULAR WEIGHTS
High Molecular Sodium Hyaluronate forms a protective yet light film on the skin surface to prevent water loss and leaves a smooth even layer on skin.
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate has a smaller molecular weight and absorbs more deeply into the surface layers of the skin to plump and restore the skin from within. This deeper hydration helps ensure “actives” get to where they need to be and also helps with lines and wrinkles.
Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate is both hydrophilic and lipophilic which increases skin affinity and “anchors” to skin, which also helps ensure the “actives” work more efficiently and over time and boosts elasticity itself.
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer is cross-linked to act like a “sponge” or “reservoir” for continuous hydration and longer-lasting overall benefits.
Firming Filter is best used in the evening. Apply to damp, clean skin and layer underneath moisturizer.
Your serum is activated once fully dissolved, usually within 8 seconds of combining the Active Powder with the Hydrator.
Easy mix and matching
Active Powders can be used interchangeably in our Activator with the same Hydrator so you can mix and match your AM and PM routine easily.
How It Works
Remove Rubber Cap from Dispenser. Place your Globe + Dispenser onto the Bowl with the Dispenser side down. Gently push the Globe down and twist clockwise. You will hear a few small clicks—then a “thunk” at about 90 degrees.
Lift Globe to reveal 1 dose of liquid and 2 piles of powder. Whip it for about 5 seconds until it transforms into a light cream-gel serum. Scoop out all the good stuff and apply to your face and neck.
Your Bowl can be quickly wiped with a tissue between uses or it can be rinsed and left to air dry.
Coenzyme Q10, also known as Ubiquinone, is one of the essential lipid antioxidants in the body that hinders the generation of free radicals — unstable molecules that can weaken skin cells — and modification of proteins (collagen, elastin), lipids (oils, fats), and DNA.
COQ10 energizes cell activity, stimulates collagen production, evens skin tone, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin firmness.
After activating your Superior Serum, scoop out the product and apply liberally to your face and neck.
You can use this serum twice a day.
You can apply CoQ10 in the AM and PM. During the day, CoQ10 boosts the antioxidant defense system and, at night, it strengthens it for protection against free radical damage.
Yes, you may feel a light tingling. Do not worry, this means the actives in the serum are working.
No, not typically.
When used for skincare, CoQ10 is synthesized in a lab for purity and consistency.
Superior Serum, Active Powders, and Hydrator
A Superior Serum is the result of activating a pure Active Powder with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator. Once the Active Powder is mixed with our Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator, it transforms into a serum with a light gel cream texture and clinically-proven results.
Made fresh in an instant so that your skin can benefit from active ingredients at peak potency.
Powder is the most stable, least degradable format available for potent, delicate actives. Our Pure, potent Active Powders are innovatively designed to quickly and fully activate in under 8 seconds when mixed with our Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator—transforming seamlessly into a silky, light gel cream texture.
Yes, our line of Superior Serums was designed to mix and match so you can use different Active Powders (in their Activator Globes + Dispensers) with the same Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator and Activator Base.
Yes, they can, and product selection is based on the skin concern you most want to improve and benefits you want to see and feel.
All formulas are considered safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding except the Enzyme/Probiotic Powder as it has willow bark that is standardized for salicylic acid. However, as with any skincare product, we advise those who are pregnant or lactating to consult their physician prior to use.
All Exponent products are allergy tested for safety. However, alway patch test prior to use to make sure your skin tolerates any new topical skincare product.
The Active Powders each come with 45 doses, and the Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid Hydrator comes with 90 doses.
The shelf life or full expiration date is currently tested at 2 years. But our formulas from a ‘best if used by date’ never go bad– as in, they deliver the same potency every single dose.
