Clinical studies describe retinol as the “gold standard” for reducing the visible signs of extrinsic aging and photo damage associated with sun exposure. Green Cream’s® patented gelbased delivery system, called Green Polymer Cooling Gel™ (GPCG), provides high enough concentrations of retinol to help improve the healthy appearance of skin while minimizing the side effects associated with using retinol.
Level 9 is only suggest for experienced retinol users and skin care professionals.
The Green Cream won’t pump out of the bottle. What should I do?
Though it is rare, sometimes the pump will not evacuate its contents after several pumps. This is a very easy problem to fix if you don’t tamper with the bottle. The unique characteristic of our bottles is that air is never introduced to the contents of the bottle. As seen in this picture there is a plastic orifice that “seals” air out of the bottle. It is easy to assume that it is the orifice that it is preventing the product from pumping out of the bottle. That plug is designed to pull back so that the product comes out from around the sides of the seal. If you puncture that seal, the product will never come out of the bottle. Therefore, PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PUNCTURE THE SEAL.
Which level of Green Cream should I start with?
AST completed a questionnaire of over 400 Green Cream users and 82% said that they started with Level 6 with no side effects or problems. However, I must note that 100% of the people that answered that question said they followed the instructions completely. If you don’t follow the instructions, then you should probably start with our Level 3 product.
If retinoids are so great, why doesn’t everyone use them?
The simple answer is that most people want results overnight and often experience side effects which they blame on the product. PATIENCE is a virtue when it comes to using a retinoid like Green Cream. Below you will find a table that list the most common side effects and how to overcome them. If you follow this protocol, your skin will adapt to using a retinoid.

After gentle cleansing with a mild soap or cleanser, aply a pea-size amount of Green Cream® to the entire face, initially avoiding the eye and neck areas.
