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
76% of subjects showed a clinically significant increase in skin firmness after 4 weeks
76% of subjects showed a clinically significant increase in elasticity after 4 weeks
An independent clinical testing facility ran a 4 week study in which 29 female subjects completed testing. Subjects were evaluated with Visia Image Analysis Pro, Cutometer. Upon completion of the testing period, data was analyzed and evaluated.
Increases cell turnover, boosts collagen production, regulates oil production, combats blemishes, and reduces wrinkles and dark spots.
WHY WE LOVE IT
“Retinol is the most fragile of the antioxidants, disappearing rapidly once exposed to light and air. It also has a reputation as irritating if too concentrated. We wanted our serums to not only deliver peak potency in every dose, but at an optimal concentration for clinically-proven decreases in fine lines and wrinkles without irritating the skin.” — Liz Whitman
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 itself.
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.
Time Rewind is best used in the evening. Apply to damp, clean skin and layer underneath a moisturizer.
Your serum is activated when fully dissolved, usually within 8 seconds of combining the Active Powder with the Hydrator.
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.
We recommend you either refrain from using Time Rewind while pregnant or lactating or consult your doctor first. Our Retinol Powder is a form of Vitamin A.
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.
The retinol formula is one of the strongest in activity and should be applied to sensitive skin gradually. Start by applying retinol once a day at night. For those with sensitive skin, start with 1-2X per week for the first week, 2-3X per week for your second week, 4-5X per week for your third week, and then each night as tolerated.
Apply your retinol serum after cleansing the skin. Follow with moisturizer if needed. Retinol can increase sensitivity to the sun so make sure to wear SPF.
Apply your retinol serum before additional moisturizers.
Yes, once a day at night.
Yes, you may feel a light tingling. Do not worry, this means the actives in the serum are working.
Retinol should only be used once a day at night. For those with sensitive skin, start with 1-2X/week for week 1, 2-3X/week for week 2, 4-5X/week for week 3, and work up to each night as tolerated.
Retinol is derived from vitamin A. When it enters the body, it is converted to retinal and retinoic acid.
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.

All formulas except the Retinol Powder and Enzyme/Probiotic Powder contain ingredients that are considered safe to use while pregnant or breastfeeding. However, as with any skincare product, we advise those who are pregnant or lactating to consult their physician prior to use-- Retinol Powder because it is a form of vitamin A and Enzyme/Probiotic Powder as it has willow bark that is standardized for salicylic acid.
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 60 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.
