PRIMORDI-A™ Targeted Repair Retinoid Complex



The Gold Standard Elevated. Patented ultra-stabilized pure retinoid complex encapsulated in a transepidermal release system

Scientifically proven to improve all major signs of visible skin aging & damage including

  • Lines/Wrinkles/Deep Creases
  • Texture -  Enlarged Pores/Roughness
  • Clarity - Dark Spots/Hyperpigmentation/Breakouts
  • Dullness/Lack of radiance and luminosity
  • Loss of Firmness



Skin starts to lose collagen (the protein that makes skin strong and resilient) as soon as in your mid 20s. Fortunately, the retinol family has been proven many times over, and by many recognized independent studies, to have a positive effects on the collagen in our skin and many visible signs of skin aging.

However, a large number of people cannot tolerate traditional retinols and stronger prescription strength does not necessarily mean better. Misuse is actually doing more harm to skin than good, especially for those with sensitive skin, causing skin to become agitated and actually age faster from inflamm-aging.

While they can provide benefits, encouraging overuse of unstabilized retinol, whether prescription or over-the-counter, can result in new cells that are produced too rapidly and skin barriers that don't function well because they lack the crucial adhesion and lipid production to properly protect the skin, no matter how skin may look on the surface. Even over-the-counter products that claim to provide micro/daily dose delivery (products can't determine daily doses for you) can still cause hot spots from instability of the ingredients and uneven application.

Although they may seem helpful, unnecessary additions of actives mainly for marketing purposes can often be aggravating for sensitive and reactive skin (retinol + hyaluronic acid, for example). All of this allows for increased environmental damage and possibly lead to several long-term skin issues including dermatitis. 



Lex and Jong skin science has found a way to harness the positive powers this gold-standard ingredient in an effective way that can work for even those with sensitive skin. The result is a patented retinoid complex made up of encapsulated-release .5% ultra stabilized pure retinol + vitamins C & E with proprietary state-of-the-art multi-pathway delivery technology. This maximizes each ingredient's effectiveness while reducing chances of irritation for the most potent corrective results where and when it matters most. All of this while skin is protected with additional antioxidants to offset inflamm-aging. 

Primordi-A™ works by complementing skin's natural renewal process, encouraging repair at the basal cells, that are deep in the lowest layer of skin, to divide resulting in fresh, vital epidermal cells that come to the surface. Beyond deep repair, Primordi-A™ works to address multiple skin concerns while you are at rest. A breakthrough so advanced, its patented Retinoid Complex has been proven to dramatically reduce all of the major visible markers of skin aging including improvement of overall tone and evening the look of skin.

Apply sparingly over face and neck on completely dry skin at night, avoiding eye area. Initial application should be once a week; increase use when you don't notice signs of irritation. Monitor your skin to help determine your ideal frequency of application. Allow product to fully absorb before following with your Lex and Jong Moisturizer. 

For best results, during the day, use IDEAL LIGHT C+ Skin Defender™ Antioxidant + Firming Even Tone Serum (& a Lex & Jong Moisturizer of your choice) plus Lex & Jong sun + environmental protection with EvenShield Technology.

On Nights you are not using Primordi-A™, alternate with SYNERGIST Micro-Targeted Deep Crease Serum™ Collagen Synthesis Reactivator.

Extra sensitive skin should first apply ZEN SOURCE Barrier Strengthening Lipid Restore Moisture Cream over damp skin after cleansing. Wait for Zen Source to fully absorb and skin to be fully dry, then follow with a pea size amount of Primordi-A™. It's crucial to use sun protection during the day when using Primordi-A™. We suggest one of the Lex & Jong SUN CARE products to ensure the best results with high levels of safe stable sun protection.

Note: If your skin is inflamed, your barrier needs to be repaired before you begin use of any retinol product (or exfoliants). We suggest using Zen Source Barrier Strengthening Lipid Restore Moisture Cream regularly to help improve and bring your skin's lipid content back to a more ideal state while calming inflammation. Once you observe your skin's condition improve, start on Primordi-A™ slowly and sparingly based on the above directions.

Less is more. For absolute best benefits for your skin, we used minimal ingredients to enhance the powers of our exclusive retinoid complex while helping to greatly reduce chances of irritation.

It is also full of antioxidants and used to help boost the product's antioxidant capabilities Its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties work to help ingredients last longer. 
  • Polydimethysiloxane Crosspolymer/Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer/Dimethiconol -   skin-conditioning, suspending and stabilizing  agents with smoothing, emollient properties that are very effective together at preventing moisture loss from skin and enhancing the efficacy of other ingredients.

        If you're in need of an effective retinol product, look no further! I have super sensitive skin, and I haven't had any negative reaction, and my skin feels baby soft! I just started using this fantastic formula and can't wait to see the long term results. So, you should give it a try. Seriously.
