Kakadu C with 1% Retinol + 12% C Ferulic & E Complex combines high-potency retinol to resurface and exfoliate skin with vitamin C, ferulic acid and vitamin E to fight free radical damage into a sophisticated, highly effective hydrating emulsion. Kakadu C with 1% Retinol + 12% C Ferulic & E Complex is recommended to be applied sparingly with initial use of not more than every other night.

Calm Cool + Corrected Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum features high-performance bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol that delivers the powerful anti-aging benefits of increased cellular turnover and collagen production, but is gentle enough for sensitive skin. Mega-moisturizing polyglutamic acid, radiance-boosting vitamin B12 and natural AHAs for gentle exfoliation are added together with botanicals into a luxe serum with skin-soothing and calming benefits. Calm Cool + Corrected Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum is recommended for application once daily.

“We’ve expanded two highly popular skincare collections that our customers love and trust with next-generation anti-aging formulas to revitalize skin for a brighter, more youthful appearance,” said Audrey Kunin, M.D., NovaBay’s Chief Product Officer and a board-certified dermatologist. “Our Kakadu C 1% Retinol with 12% Vitamin C Ferulic Acid and E Complex is a truly unique, clinically concentrated power coupling of ingredients creating a first of its kind cutting-edge, anti-aging complex. Our use of the Kakadu plum, believed to be the world’s most concentrated natural source of Vitamin C, takes this unique formulation to another level.

“While retinol is a well-recognized go-to rejuvenating ingredient among dermatologists, not everyone can tolerate its use. This is especially true for sensitive skin and among those prone to eczema or rosacea,” Dr. Kunin added. “I believe everyone deserves the benefits of retinol, which is why we have also introduced our Calm Cool + Corrected Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum. Bakuchiol is a plant-derived natural ingredient that provides the benefits of retinol without the downside of irritation, making it ideal for those with challenging skin who desire effective anti-aging products.

“Importantly, our newest formulations deliver on the DERMAdoctor promise that clinical skin therapy can be fun and easy for all while producing significant, visible results. Our skincare solutions combine science, innovation and creativity and our formulas mix compassion with expertise to ensure that when it comes to skin, no age group, gender, race or person is left out,” she concluded.

Kakadu C with 1% Retinol + 12% C Ferulic & E Complex is available in a 30 ml size for $75 and Calm Cool + Corrected Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum is available in a 30 ml size for $58 at Both products are available at, which also offers monthly auto delivery at a 15% discount along with free shipping.

The Kakadu C product family features the skin indulging benefit of the Kakadu plum, one of the richest natural vitamin C sources known on earth, harvested in a remote Australian territory. Ounce per ounce, Kakadu plums contain on average 55 times more vitamin C than Florida oranges and help protect skin against pollutants, oxidative stress and free radical damage.

Calm Cool + Corrected Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Serum joins the recently launched Hydrating Cleansing Oil and Moisture Recover HA Serum as the newest addition to DERMAdoctor’s Calm Cool + Corrected collection. This collection is designed to help soothe and comfort skin that’s prone to irritation, including those with eczema or rosacea.

All DERMAdoctor products are clean, allergy-tested and hypoallergenic, free of synthetic dyes and cruelty-free with no animal testing.
