Fleur & Bee has launched Youth Fairy—a beginner-friendly retinol moisturizer with 0.03% retinol and nourishing botanical actives, including evening primrose oil, squalane, plant stem cells and vitamin E. Youth Fairy is designed to be a “gateway” retinol moisturizer for consumers without experience using a form of retinoid to build a tolerance to the potent anti-aging ingredient.
Youth Fairy uses a clean and vegan formulation made with renewable wind energy and packaged in 100% post-consumer wastepaper. It is designed to deeply moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and uneven texture.
Youth Fairy’s active ingredients include 0.03% retinol, evening primrose oil, aloe vera, squalane, plant stem cells, coenzyme q10, vitamin E, sea buckthorn oil, sunflower oil, vitamin B3, glycerin, jojoba oil, palmitoyl tripeptide-1, shea butter, vitamin B5, palmitoyl tripeptide-5, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and green tea.
Fleur & Bee Youth Fairy retinol moisturizer costs $35; available on Amazon and fleurandbee.com.
Matthias Hug, founder of Fleur & Bee, said, “Retinol is one of the best-researched skincare ingredients and highly effective at increasing cell turnover, targeting signs of aging and reducing acne. Unfortunately, most products on the market are not designed for people new to retinol and are too harsh. Our goal was to create a formula people with sensitive skin or new to retinol can use. Evening primrose oil, aloe vera, and squalane help soothe and reduce any potential inflammation caused by introducing retinol into your routine. We created a formula that is choke-full of quality ingredients that work synergistically to deliver results and nourish your skin.”
