Hate Using Retinol But Want The Results? Trufora Night Serum 85 Is For You

Why Night Serum 85 is better than a traditional retinol serum

When asked what is the one ingredient that will make the biggest difference to your skin, it seems like every beauty influencer, Dermatologist or skincare expert will tell you to add a retinol product to your skincare regimen. Women everywhere grimace when they hear the word retinol, as even though it’s undoubtedly effective in improving the skin it also comes along with a lot of negative side effects that no-one wants. Dryness, redness, peeling, irritation, sun sensitivity, questionable safety, not being able to use at the same time as other active ingredients are just some of the most common issues. So what do you do if you want the positive results of retinol but you don’t want any of the side effects? Until recently - there weren’t any options. That’s why we developed Trufora Night Serum 85 - our Patented, completely unique and proprietary retinol-alternative serum. 

Patented (U.S Patent No. 9,636,292 2017)

Why did Trufora receive a Patent for Night Serum 85? This is because Night Serum 85 is the only skin care serum to deliver the preventative, corrective and rejuvenative properties of retinol without containing any retinol ingredients - and without any of the side effects. 

Where did the name come from and what does the 85 mean in Night Serum 85? You might already know this, but surprisingly 85% of the visible signs of skin damage and unwanted changes in the skin are due to the negative effect that environmental factors have on the skin. Night Serum 85 combines an incredibly effective range of ingredients that will address the skin damage caused by environmental factors, rejuvenating your skin and reversing the visible signs of damage. The cream serum formula absorbs quickly and provides intensive hydration without any irritation. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, dark marks and hyperpigmentation fade, pores are refined and treated for clearer skin, resiliency and radiance improves, texture and tone normalize, and sagging skin is lifted and firmed. 

Night Serum 85 is so unique, and Patented, as it is the only skincare serum to deliver the preventative, corrective and rejuvenative properties of retinol without containing any retinol ingredients. Night Serum 85 is truly unlike any skincare serum or retinol treatment product you have ever tried before. Night Serum 85 is formulated with the skin perfecting and anti-inflammatory benefits of multiple peptides as well as “bio-retinols” (Vitamin A free retinol alternatives) Sytenol®A and Revinage, along with Actizyme® a mushroom derived enzyme that allows the bio-retinols and peptides to absorb deeper without irritation; as well as Vitamins C & E, Organic Aloe Vera, Oat Extract, an Apple derived Moisturizing Complex, an Antioxidant Complex and multiple forms of Hyaluronic Acid.

You are probably wondering how Night Serum 85 can deliver the same skin perfecting benefits of retinol, if it doesn’t actually contain any retinol. This is how: retinol and retinoids are Vitamin A derivatives that works in the skin by binding with retinoid receptors - some of the receptors result in the positive effects seen and some results in the negative side effects such as skin peeling. Night Serum 85 contains two alternatives to retinol that are not Vitamin A derivatives, Sytenol®A and Revinage, and bind only with the retinoid receptors that results in the positive effects that we want and don’t bind with the receptors that result in the negative side effects that we don’t want. Pretty smart, right? Night Serum 85 goes beyond only delivering the positive benefits of retinol, as it has a number of additional active ingredients that not only improve the skin but also leave the skin hydrated, plump and smooth.

How will I know if Trufora Night Serum 85 will work for me? 

To prove how well Night Serum 85 really works, we completed a clinical study in an independent research laboratory to measure the changes in the skin when 30 women of all skin types and ethnicities used Night Serum 85 as directed for a total of 8 weeks (with measurements being taken immediately after the first use, then again at the 4 week and 8 week follow up visits), the measurements were either based on image analysis or completed with a Corneometer (which measure skin hydration). This is what we learned about Night Serum 85:

  • 100% of the women studied had skin moisture levels that were significantly improved immediately after the first application 
  • 100% of the women studied had significant improvement in skin texture after 4 weeks of use 
  • 93% of the women studied had significant improvement in their crow’s feet fine lines and wrinkles after 4 weeks of use
  • 77% of the women studied had significant improvement in skin brightness after 8 weeks of use 
  • 77% of the women studied had significant improvement in skin tone after 8 weeks of use 
  • 77% of the women studied had significant improvement in skin sagging after 8 weeks of use
  • 70% of the women studied had significant improvement in skin clarity after 4 weeks of use
  • None of the women studied showed any skin irritation during the 8 week study

Customer Reviews

Really love the night serum and use it daily. I see a difference in my skin.

I am a 64 year old woman. When I use this product the skin above my eyes springs back faster when I pinched it. I was afraid to apply this test under my eye, but they looked less tired, puffy and creased the next morning. I was starting to hate looking in the mirror in the mornings but not after Trufora.

I loved the night serum! It made my skin feel super hydrated and didn’t have a sticky feeling like most do.

I've been using the night serum for almost 2 weeks and I absolutely love it! Saying goodbye to glamglow skincare products and replacing them with trufora products! The results are even better than what I expected!

I've been using this for the past couple weeks and it's my new favorite. It's super light and absorbs quickly into the skin. I have really sensitive skin and break out easily but I haven't since I started using Trufora.

For one, Trufora has the most amazing customer service ever. But even on top of that their products are AMAZING. This is my favorite skin care product I own. Love love love it and would recommend to everyone!

I was excited to try this night serum because I heard some great things about it. It is definitely a good product! Makes my skin feel so soft and has a great consistency.

I've been using the Trufora Night Serum 85 for about a month now and I absolutely love it. Nightly skincare has always been a bit of a challenge for me to keep up with, as usually I'm so tired I just want to fall into bed and not bother. Since I started using the Night Serum 85, I have been super good about completing my full nightly routine. I just love the way the product makes my skin feel - it's super moisturizing and breathable - I never wake up with dry, flaky skin anymore. It has visibly reduced dark marks and lines, especially under my eyes and around my forehead! I'm very impressed with both the Night and Day serums from Trufora, and will continue to make them a part of my skincare routine.

I really enjoy this serum because it leaves my skin feeling nice and smooth and clean. I don’t wake up with greasy feeling skin in the morning.

I've been using the night serum for a few weeks now and I’m loving it. The results are even better than I was expecting. I just had a daughter, and the pregnancy effects on my skin has gotten better since I’ve started using it each night. I definitely recommend it!

I love this serum! Usually my skin is super sensitive to trying new things and I was scared I would break out but I didn't! And my skin feels so smooth! Definitely recommend it!
