Recently, I was delighted to attend the Radical Skincare launch event that was held at Escentials @ Paragon. What got me interested in this brand is the highly potency Peptide Infused Antioxidant Serum.
If you have not heard of Radical Skincare, let me give you a short intro of the brand.
Two beautiful sisters Rachel and Liz Edlich, the creators of Radical Skincare, first discovered the transformative power of skincare working alongside their internationally renowned father in the University of Virginia Hospital burn unit.
They assessed the skincare market and discovered a common defeat among even prestige treatments : the breakdown of antioxidants, which effectively diminished potency. Determined to address this issue in their own collection and forever pushing the boundaries of empower others, Liz and Rachel worked closely with a team of chemists to develop a radical approach to preserving antioxidant potency in order to prevent and repair the effects of aging more effectively : Trylacel technology. Used in combination with powerful, innovative, age-defying ingredients like Resveratrol, Acai Berry, Grape Seed Extract, Green Tea and Coffee Berry Extract, the technology ensures the lasting potency of the transformative formulas in the Radical Skincare collection.
The premiere product in the Radical Skincare line quickly developed a cult following among the Hollywood elite through word of mouth, spurring Liz and Rachel to create a complete skincare collection incorporating their trademark technology and powerful ingredients.

Peptide Infused Antioxidant Serum – S$275

Formulated with Radical Skincare’s proprietary Trylacel technology, the product is clinically proven by a USDA lab to outperform leading skincare brands in antioxidant potency and more effectively fight the destructive effects of free radicals. Trylacel suspends the antioxidants in the formula to prevent them from breaking down, preserving their potency to provide maximum protection.
The Peptide Serum contains grape seeds and promotes the production of multiple collagen fibers that repair, protect and soothe the skin. The formula supports the increase of collagen synthesis by 128% in 15 days, improving skin texture firmness and elasticity while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
