The long-awaited alternative
It starts with the Intide™
We’ve developed the first-ever Intide™—intelligent, innate, innovative, patent-pending peptides—that naturally target and deliver results right where it matters, leaving your skin firmer and smoother than ever before.
Delivered through a Multiphasic Vesicle
Our exclusive multiphasic vesicle delivers Intides™ to specific areas of the skin with accuracy and is made out of resources naturally found in your body, such as collagen and elastin. This helps gently restore your skin and leave you feeling and looking like yourself.
Going where no skincare has gone before
Our patent-pending Brightening Intides™–Intelligent Peptides–help target and eliminate dark spots before they even begin. Niacinamide and vitamin c also work to improve your skin’s tone for a brighter, more even-toned complexion.
Our Subtopical Plumping Technology™ works to infuse hyaluronic acid to reclaim volume, suppleness, and definition, and to enhance the color of your lips. Enjoy fuller, natural-looking lips without injections.
Stay tuned, coming soon.
Founded by disruptors
We knew that if we wanted to create a new category of skincare we had to create new technology. Our team of biochemists, engineers, and doctors worked together to create a subtopical technology that's never been seen in skincare before.
