There are so many important things I’ve learned about skin care throughout my years as a beauty editor. One of them is the importance of stimulating collagen production, as the collagen in our skin begins declining around age 30. The most abundant
protein in the body, it plays a vital role in the health of our skin and visible signs of aging. The Cleanest Lab NOTOX Daily Cream boosts this process and then some with its peptide-packed formula.

The Benefits

Founder Samantha Kent dedicated most of her career to product manufacturing, focusing on natural beauty products and formulas. In 2022, her sister was diagnosed with leukemia, which not only changed her life, but also her skin. Her sister began experiencing adverse reactions to the skin care she had always loved, and Kent wanted to help. She started developing products with “pure beauty” in mind, and then The Cleanest Lab was born.

This age-defying cream relies on the brand’s signature F2P2 System, which works to “Firm, Freeze, Plump and Protect” skin. The key ingredient is the brand’s Freeze Peptide Complex (in a 10-percent concentration) that Kent says “affects nerve to muscle communication and functions similarly to popular injectables.” The below infographic from The Cleanest Lab helps explain this functionality.

Other essential components include 1-percent CelluTight, which helps smooth the skin, and 5-percent BioCollagen+, which is a bio-designed, marine-inspired vegan collagen. The brand says this type of collagen outperformed animal-derived hydrolyzed marine collagen in a clinical study testing skin moisturization.

With regular use (consistency is key), the fragrance-free cream helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by smoothing and firming the skin. It’s particularly great for horizontal lines on the forehead and vertical lines between the eyebrows (known as the 11s). Hydrating and moisturizing benefits are also part of the equation, courtesy of hyaluronic acid, squalane and glycerin.

How to Use It

Use it twice a day in the morning and at night. Apply a small amount to dry, clean skin. Gently massage the cream into the areas of your face that you want to firm up, using upward strokes. You can also use it on your crow’s-feet and under-eye bags, but just make sure not to get it in your eyes. The brand recommends doing a patch test before first use.
