As with all of my Formulas, Formula 8-A must be shaken vigorously before use. Formula 8-A is for nighttime use only! Sunlight can damage your skin with vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) exposure. It is a prime active ingredient in Formula 8-A. Apply after cleansing your face and neck with the hot washcloth method; see YouTube video for further instruction.
The vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) in Formula 8-A can do more to reduce fine lines and wrinkles than any other ingredient. My essential oils are a gentle yet effective way to bring the vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) to the dermis for a deeper penetration. Most cosmetics use an alcohol-type product with vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) for absorption that dries your skin.
Many vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) products have hundreds of synthetic additives whose safety has been tested on animals, not humans. I believe there is a big difference between human skin and animal skin. I have tested all my ingredients on myself. Of course, always do a patch test before using any new cosmetic product on your face.
I have found that living in Florida for 40 years, no matter how careful you are, the sun still does its damage. Vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) can help to repair and reverse sun damage and prevent collagen and elastin breakdown. The Seabuckthorn seed oil in Formula 8-A has beta-carotene naturally. It enhances the vitamin A (retinyl palmitate) in Formula 8-A.
Since beta-carotene is fat-soluble, it accumulates in the fat tissue in your body.
You can layer this Super Serum. When layering any of my Formulas, you must let the skin dry thoroughly and wait 15-20 minutes between applications.
I use Formula 8 first and then I layer it with Formula 8-A. I like to nourish my skin while sleeping. Also, if you get up during the night you can smooth on a bit of Formula 8-A around the mouth to help keep fine lines at bay.
The secret of layering is to take the time to dry between layers. No hair dryers please. Formula 8-A is a must-have for every woman’s face over 30.
With Sher-Ray’s skin care products, you will discover the difference within the first week and experience the results within approximately three months.
