Hydration that stays in

You’ve seen the marketing: some humectants can hold “1000x their weight in water". But here’s the thing: this doesn't necessarily translate to more hydrated skin. Wave Serum is the result years of testing dozens of the best humectants, raising the bar on what made the cut, ruthlessly cutting out the hype. The result: skincare’s best tool for skin hydration.

A hydrator that dives way deeper

Wave Serum's key insight was to pack it with humectants and NMFs rather than water or glycols. Now, we’ve gone further: we doubled our core humectant combination and we now use 10% Acetamidoethoxyethanol (AXE), the new gold standard for skin hydration.

Longwave

Wave promotes long-term hydration by supporting the skin’s natural hydration mechanisms. This system (TECA) kickstarts skin’s aquaporin synthesis, allowing skin to stay hydrated long after application.

We pair these with natural moisturizing factors to keep skin deeply hydrated for longer.

The barrier’s the thing

All humectants by definition hydrate the skin, but our research revealed that some can have subtle, negative effects on the barrier. We removed ingredients that could irritate or weaken the skin barrier, keeping skin happy and hydrated.

    Peer reviewed and then reviewed by peers

    From our first lab samples to 100s of real-world testers to you, we are obsessed with feedback.

    Scientifically Engineered

    We re-engineered Wave 2.5 to be the most complete hydration serum backed by science.

    We tested and re-tested

    ✅  We used equipment to test dozens of the best available humectants (primary ingredients for skin hydration) and ruthlessly cut the list to end up with only the best.

    then we gave it a name

    👩‍🔬Our new core mix of humectants is called Tidal Complex. We're very excited about two new ingredients that impressed us in our research and stunned us when we studied them in the lab.

    and we perfected it with you

    ✅ With Tidal Complex set, we iterated with hundreds of versions to get the texture right. Then we opened it up to the toughest critics of all - you! 100s of testers helped us perfect the texture and verify the performance of this all new Wave.

    Product Philosophy

    Every Regimen product is formulated and made in our own lab:

    Peer reviewed

    We only use ingredients backed by thorough, independent scientific evidence. We obsess over the details so you don't have to.

    Transparency + Integrity
