Purpose: moisture and nourishment on the molecular level for springy, supple skin.

2% plant-based hyaluronic acid
5% plant-based niacinamide ( B₃)

In the entire field of dermatology, one principle has led all others for over a century: constant, simple moisture is as effective as anything at maintaining a youthful complexion.

This luxurious hydrating cream is a simple combination of nature's most nourishing and moisturizing elements.

Built on a glycerin base (Nature's most perfect emollient moisture element), this cream is packed with high-molecular weight Hyaluronic acid, which holds 1,000x its weight in water and keeps for hours on end. It also contains, high-quality niacinamide, which––similar to retinoids––is known to help cells act the way they're supposed to, particularly in terms of nutrient synthesis.

This makes it one of the soft, silent, but important heroes of the Renewing Line. In short, it:

  • Provides deep, long term moisture to create springy, youthful skin.
  • Optimizes skin's utility of retinoid therapy for maximal impact.
  • Deeply nourishes skin for a soft, supple look.

"Looking for a simple, everyday moisturizer with dermatologist-approved ingredients? Look no further. This whipped cream has a comforting, soufflé-like texture and is rich with hydrating hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to keep skin soft and supple all season long."

The best. I got this through the SMOL kit and probably wouldn’t have ordered it otherwise. I’m so glad I did because it might be the best part of this amazing line. It’s hydrating, absorbs quickly, luxurious feeling, fragrance-free, never pills (even when mixed with sunscreen, serums, or other ingredients) and keeps my skin bouncy and healthy-looking. This moisturizer is saving my skin, I’ve never used a better moisturizer, this stuff is the GOAT.

Not sure why I waited so long to try this. Only on my second bottle of Protocol’s retinol, and decided to give this a try. Really improved my already-improving skin. If you’re using the retinol, definitely add this to your routine! They work so well together. My skin is 10/10 more smooth

I absolutely love this moisturizer! It is very hydrating without breaking me out (which is a very rare balance for me). It leaves me dewy but not greasy and doesn't feel heavy on the skin.

After using the moisturizer and when I wake up in the morning, my skin feels soft, plump and supple, but never greasy or oily.

The moisturizer is something I wouldn’t have picked out if it was not in the kit. It’s honestly so good though.

Dermatologist-approved ingredients

Clients typically notice improvements to complexion tone and evenness almost immediately. Fine lines such as crow's feet are often visibly reduced or completely reversed within weeks of use, while deeper wrinkles such as those on the forehead may require ongoing treatment. We recommend using the 60-day regimen continuously, but using 2-3 times per year will also maintain baseline results. 

As with all topical products, we recommend all women who are pregnant or nursing speak with their physician before purchasing.

CLEAN, PRISTINE, & INTELLIGENT SKINCARE

I cant even express to you how much I’ve battled with hormonal cystic acne, dark hyperpigmentation, dry, and oily skin. I’ve spent thousands on peels, creams, serums, pills, and countless sad evenings researching ingredients and how they can alter your skin and gut microbiome. Through the years I’ve had to learn the hard way how paramount clean and well preserved ingredients are. After 13 years of an arduous journey- I’ve landed, with confidence, on Protocol. As we all know, Vitamin C is a cute but unstable monster, retinol is an irritating acid at certain percentages, HA is tricky without the right moisture/reactive combination but Protocol has mastered all of it with scientific sophistication. Aside from its CLEAN (non carcinogenic, paraben free, hormone-disrupter free) ingredients, the packages are ingenious (check out their page on the way no light or air penetrate the serums). Also, their customer care is the sweetest, most understanding, and most responsive I’ve dealt with.

Listen, I don’t usually freak like this over a brand but I’m telling you it will change your life and simplify your complicated skin routine. I look younger, I look fresher, I look brighter, and I feel like I can just take a breath and trust this brand. You owe it to yourself to try this. My skin made me sad for so long and with this I’m getting my confidence back every day.

My 10 year old acne scars literally fell off my face

I thought I was imagining it at first but 3 weeks in my whole family was commenting on how good my skin looked and asking what I was doing. I took before pic a few days in because it already seemed to be changing so quickly. The after pics are from my 2nd round of the complete line and the improvement is REAL. I'm shook. THANK YOU PROTOCOL!!

I can't believe it

This is unbelievable. I'm 32. I've been using retinol products and "Retin-'A'" 0.05 for about 6 years. I microneedle and get red light therapy. This is the best retinol I have ever used. I've seen more results from one week of use than I have from months of "Retin-'A'". I can also use it every night without drying which is insane. I'll report back in 6 months but this is not a drill. It is. The best.

Fan for life.

I've had issues with my skin for the past two or so years, I think because of damage done to my skin barrier from using Biologique Recherche p50, and then other chemical exfoliants. My skin was very, very angry with me, and I responded with panic and more products. Wrong. I finally gave my skin some space to breath (thank you stay-at-home orders), and didn't put anything besides sunscreen on for two weeks - highly recommend. The first products I used again were Protocol and Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream (so good for sensitive skin), and my skin has never looked better. Like ever.

I have never seen these types of results, yet alone this quickly (about three months with Retinol/Vit C/Moisturizer). I use the Retinol every second or third night so I don't have bitchy skin deja-vu. The cleanser is magic, truly. So worth it. I just started using it, and every other night works best so far. I think I started out putting too much of the moisturizer on (I feel like this might have been part of my problem all along), but now that I take more time to apply instead of just slapping it on I am much happier with how my skin really absorbs the product. I use it during the daytime, and Cicalfate at night. My skin is completely different now - blemish free, less redness, super plump and strong, and I worry far less about it (the best part).

Protocol's customer service is also fantastic in general, they get that it's 2020 and they're a skincare brand. Thank you!!

Amazing Results!

My 43 year old stressed acneic aging skin has never looked better! The protocol line of products has brought new life to my problem skin. I feel such a sense of rejuvenation since using this line! My skin is softer, more supple, and brighter. I also see fewer fine lines and acne scars!
