Retinoids replenish skin and diminish fine lines.

A Peachy primer on how skin ages and what you can do to help take care of your skin along the way.


Collagen is key

collagen affecting skin

Collagen is a structural protein that’s found all over the body from your skin to your bones. It is vital to maintaining skin elasticity and volume.

natural loss of collagen in skin

Over time, your body naturally begins to lose more collagen than it produces, leading to a loss of skin elasticity and formation of wrinkles.

age, UV rays, and alchohol affect skin

Aging, sun damage, smoking, and alcohol consumption accelerate collagen breakdown in the body.

retinoids increase collagen

Prescription retinoids are one of the most clinically effective ways to increase collagen production, resulting in fewer wrinkles, a more even skin tone, smoother skin texture, and decreased pore size.

Not all retinoids are made the same

What’s the difference?

Retinoids are often used to describe both over-the-counter retinols and prescription strength retinoids.

Retinoids are a form of Vitamin A that are often used to improve skin by increasing collagen production. More collagen in your skin means smoother, wrinkle-free skin. 

High strength

Prescription Retinoids

  • Tretinoin
    Prescription retinoids include the active ingredient Tretinoin, aka retinoic acid, which induces the production of collagen in the skin at the cellular level.
  • Science-based approach
    Prescription retinoids include 50+ years of academic studies to support long-term safety and efficacy in reversing wrinkle formation.
  • FDA Approved
    Prescription retinoids are the only FDA approved retinoid to treat photoaging.
Low strength

Over-the-counter retinols

Retinol is a specific type of retinoid that is a milder form of Vitamin A. It is 20x less potent that prescription retinoids.

The body takes retinol and converts it into Tretinoin (aka retinoic acid), which is the active form that’s present in prescription-strength retinoids.

Given its lower strength, this product is gentler on the skin but also takes significantly longer to produce results
