Skin Caviar Nighttime Oil by La Prairie is a dream cream that uses a component of caviar and retinol, a molecule that smoothes fine lines. La Prairie scientists have found a way to harvest the goodness of caviar and retinol through a specially- designed extraction process, which creates the ideal conditions to capture and retain both caviar lipids and caviar-derived Retinol. According to scientists, the skin follows a circadian rhythm, with a peak and a low within a 24-hour period. During the night, the skin’s focus is primarily on regeneration but during the day, it is mainly on protection.
