Introducing Biretix: The Holistic Skincare Approach For Spot Prone Skin

holistic skincare

Created by Cantabria Labs, the same company that make the award-winning (and firm FTF customer favourite) sunscreen range, Heliocare, Biretix is a holistic skincare approach that helps to purify and treat oily and spot-prone skin without the irritation commonly associated with clarifying ranges.  

Using innovative technologies within formulas specially designed to boost skin health, the forward-thinking range is clinically proven to clarify skin in both adults and adolescents looking for the best acne skincare that's gentle enough for daily use.

As a pharmaceutical company, Cantabria Labs invests 12% of its turnover into research to ensure maximum scientific efficacy and quality within their products.

Biretix products feature the patented RetinSphere¬ģ Technology that provides powerful retinoid activity causing photosensitisation or skin irritation, and BIOPEP-15 to contrast the rapid reproduction of bacteria. By infusing these two technologies with other effective ingredients, Biretix provides personalised skincare solutions that help to visibly reduce the imperfections associated with acne-prone skin, and in rapid time.

What is BIOPEP-15 Technology?

BIOPEP-15 helps to protect your skin from the agents that cause the typical signs of acne-prone skin.

This plant-based peptide technology contrasts the rapid reproduction of Cutibacterium acnes - the main bacteria involved in the development of acne.

BIOPEP-15 is based on a set of 15 vegetable amino acids that work together to slow down the growth of microorganisms.

How does Retinsphere¬ģ Technology work?

The innovative Retinsphere¬ģ Technology combines two retinoids that are both high tolerance: hydroxypinacolone retinoate, and stabilised and encapsulated retinol. Together, they smooth your skin and reduce blemishes and imperfections by stimulating epidermal renewal. The technology has similar efficacy to retinoic acid but is free from its common adverse effects like redness, irritation, and skin flaking, making it more tolerable for your skin.

Derived from vitamin A or retinol, and well-known to be effective in the treatment of acne, hyperpigmentation, and photoaging, it causes a renewing action to the surface of your skin.

Hydroxypinacolone retinoate
This retinoic acid derivative delivers the same renewing benefit, but without the potential for irritation.

Stabilised and encapsulated retinol
Facilitating the penetration of retinol into the deeper layers of the skin, this gradual release system allows the retinol to act in a sustained way over time.

Retinol is transformed into retinoic acid in the higher layers of your epidermis. From here, it acts on its cells, which helps to enhance the process of natural skin renewal:

  • Promoting the growth and differentiation of cells to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation.
  • Inhibiting the synthesis of tyrosinase - an enzyme responsible for producing melanin, to reduce dark spots.
  • Normalising the formation of the follicular epithelium to prevent it becoming clogged and leading to acne.
