A Guide to the Collagen + Control Facial Serum

Introduction: Navigating the Collagen + Control Facial Serum [CCS]

The Collagen + Control Facial Serum, encompassing 50 ml / 1.7 oz, is engineered for a 90-day regimen, targeting stress, fine lines, inflammation, and uneven skin tone. Its formulation, rich in GOA’s proprietary blend of Dark Phyto Matter, Vitamin C, Witch Hazel, Salicylic Acid, and other key ingredients, is tailored for individuals confronting lifestyle stressors and desiring a fresher, healthier appearance.

Section 1: Comprehensive Skin Sensitivity Testing

Imperative of Sensitivity Testing: Given its potent formula, testing the serum on your skin is essential to prevent potential adverse reactions.


In-Depth Patch Test Protocol:

• Application: Apply half a pump behind the jawline, near the ear. This area is chosen for its sensitivity and proximity to facial skin.

• Observation for 48 Hours: Look for any signs of redness, itching, swelling, or irritation.

• Result Interpretation: If no adverse reactions are observed, the serum is deemed compatible with your skin. Any signs of discomfort suggest a sensitivity to the product, warranting consultation with a dermatologist before continued use.

    Section 2: Tailored Application Phases for Optimal Results

    Initial Adaptation Phase (First 4-6 Weeks):

    • Objective: Gradually introduce your skin to the serum only if the skin is easily irritated.

    • Method: Use one pump. This measured approach helps your skin adjust to the active ingredients without overwhelming it. 

      Advanced Benefit Phase (After 6 Weeks):

      • Objective: Leverage the full strength of the serum.

      • Upgraded Dosage: Increase to two pumps, ensuring a thorough application for maximum efficacy.

      Step-by-Step Application Guide:

      • Pre-Application Cleansing: Start with a clean face using a gentle cleanser to remove impurities, enhancing the serum’s absorption. Pat the face dry. Pro Tip: Steam enhances absorption before use.

      • Serum Extraction Technique: Extract the stopper by pulling it out and employing the airless system until it dispenses the serum, ensuring a precise amount.

        Application Method:

        • Distribute the serum evenly between hands.

        • Apply to the face with a combination of gentle pressing and tapping motions, covering the face but focusing on areas prone to wrinkles and uneven tone.

          Section 3: Post-Application Care and Precise Storage Guidelines


          Advanced Post-Application Care:

          • Complementary Products: Ideal to follow up with an undereye product and moisturizer. These enhance the serum's effects and provide overall hydration.

          • Managing UV Exposure: Wait 15-30 minutes before sun exposure to prevent the degradation of active ingredients, especially as the serum contains retinol.


          Expert Storage Recommendations:

          • Ideal Conditions: Store the serum in a fridge for additional cooling benefits, or at room temperature in a dark, cool place. This preserves the efficacy of the active ingredients and prolongs shelf life.

          • Cleaning: Always clear the nozzle on the bottle of excess serum and keep it clean to keep the serum effective.
