Frequently asked questions

What is the CollagenSupport Complex?

The CollagenSupport Complex combines the skin-replenishing properties of ceramides with retinol for strengthening support and several forms of vitamin C to help defend against environmental stressors and promote firmer skin. Together, this complex provides the essential building blocks for skin to renew itself and restore its natural barrier.

How do Clinical products differ from Resist or other Paula’s Choice product categories?

Clinical products offer more enhanced, targeted formulations for specific concerns such as advanced signs of ageing, dehydration or sun damage. Ultimately, it’s a matter of what will suit your needs best. It’s perfectly fine to assemble an anti-ageing routine that mixes Resist, Clinical and any other Paula’s Choice Skincare line that addresses your skin type and concerns.

What are ceramides?

Ceramides are a natural, fundamental part of skin that helps maintain precise levels of hydration, allowing skin to have a smooth, even surface. They’re critical for holding skin together (think bricks and mortar), protecting it from dehydration, signs of sensitivity and environmental damage that chips away at skin’s protective surface. Ceramides are the most abundant part of skin, making up over 50% of its composition.

As we age, the level of ceramides in our skin begins to decrease. As a result, the skin barrier weakens, which can lead to symptoms such as irritation, dryness, and redness. Skincare products that contain ceramides (and other skin beneficial ingredients) can help improve these symptoms.

Can it be used around the eyes?

This moisturiser can be used on the cheekbones and the under eye area. Avoid your lips, eyelids, lash lines and the corners of the eyes, as these areas are a bit more sensitive and the retinol in the product might cause irritation in these areas.

Is this product suitable for rosacea-prone or sensitive skin?

This moisturiser is suitable for rosacea-prone and sensitive skin. In fact, as we age, the level of ceramides in the skin decreases. As a result, the skin’s barrier weakens which can lead to things like irritation, dryness and redness. Ceramides along with other skin replenishing/soothing ingredients can help reduce these concerns. Because this product contains retinol, people with rosacea-prone or sensitive skin should start with applying the product 2-3 times per week. Allow the skin to acclimate and then increase as needed/desired.

How does it differ from Clinical Ultra Rich Moisturizer?

  • Clinical Ceramide-Enriched Firming Moisturizer is an anti-ageing hero. It has our unique CollagenSupport Complex with hydrating ceramides to fight fine lines and wrinkles, skin-restoring retinol to improve firmness and antioxidant vitamin C to leave skin more radiant. A lightweight lotion to tackle advanced signs of aging.
  • Clinical Ultra Rich Moisturizer also contains anti-ageing ingredients but is more nourishing. It is formulated with replenishing ingredients that strengthen the skin’s barrier to prevent moisture loss and help skin to repair itself. This rich cream helps very dry and eczema-prone skin feel soft and smooth again.

Harness the power of ceramides to visibly improve the signs of ageing

This advanced night cream delivers a cocktail of powerful ingredients to fight the signs of ageing. Our unique CollagenSupport Complex with hydrating ceramides reduces fine lines and wrinkles; retinol improves firmness and vitamin C restores radiance. These ingredients are vital in rebuilding skin’s natural barrier, for healthier, younger-looking skin.
