Super nourishing, skin-rejuvenating oil serum with a bio-retinol blend / 1oz & .3oz
YULI Modern Alchemist is one of this culty brand’s cultiest creations. Like most YULI products, it’s a statement: in this case, “Why bother with retinol or other retinoids when you can use this magnificent, golden-hued oil?”
The richest of YULI’s serum-oils, Modern Alchemist is both a step up from Liquid courage in terms of nourishment and activity as well as a wonderful companion to it: think of Liquid Courage as your antioxidant-rich daytime hero, with Modern Alchemist as your gently line-softening, skin-plumping retinol alternative at night.
That said, one of the things we love about Modern Alchemist is that — unlike retinol — it can be used day or night, since it not only doesn’t cause sun sensitivity, but also serves to protect skin from environmental damage. Instead, its blend of bio-available retinol alternatives — rose, wild carrot, sweet potato, starflower, and wild cherry — gently, and without creating any disruption in the skin, work towards the same goal of accelerating collagen synthesis and cell renewal while supporting skin’s repair process. No, it’s not your dermatologist’s retinoid, but if you’re quite sensitive-skinned and patient, it’s the way to go.
Especially since you get a whole host of goodies along with it, like carotenoid- and transretinoic-acid-rich rosehip, EFA-rich sea buckthorn, and the intriguing Tamarind Seed Infusion, included for its ability to act like hyaluronic acid…but possibly even better.
And while it's the richest of YULI's serum-oils, it's still perfectly balanced enough to suit a range of skin types from Dry to Combination-Oily — with a natural, subtle, herbal scent that comes entirely from its performance-focused ingredients.
Modern Alchemist is everything we love about YULI: inspired by tried and true ingredient mechanisms, but made better through the power of perfectly chosen plants.
