SkinCeuticals Cell Cycle Catalyst FAQ's

    • What is the consistency of Cell Cycle Catalyst?
      • Cell Cycle Catalyst is a very lightweight, liquid consistency. It is recommended that you apply 1/3 dropper to the palm of your hand and apply using your fingers. 
    • What is the level of tolerability on all skin types? 
      • Catalyst is an extremely gentle formula and a great option for those who cannot tolerate retinols, retinoids, glycolic acid, etc. You may experience a slight adjustment period which is completely normal when using an acid-based product.
    • What is Taurine? Is it a plant-based ingredient? 
      • Taurine is a natural amino acid found in the skin. With age and external factors, it decreases over time. Cell Cycle Catalyst’s formulation contains a synthetic derivative to help boost cellular vitality, stimulate skin barrier renewal and maintain skin’s optimal hydration levels.
    • Can I use Cell Cycle Catalyst with retinol? 
      • Cell Cycle Catalyst was tested for tolerance and efficacy in a clinical study where users applied Catalyst on top of their generic anti-ageing routines including retinol products. Good tolerance was observed. Cell Cycle Catalyst is also a great option for those who cannot tolerate a retinol or retinoid.
