The CR Emulsion improves the skin faster and more effectively than the Retinol Cream alone. CR Emulsion contains several active ingredients on top of retinol that the AFORÉ Retinol Cream does not contain: Cannabidiol (CBD), Matrixyl, Argirilene, and Hyaluronic Acid. According to a six week study, these ingredients may act additively or synergistically with one another to benefit the skin more than any of the ingredients alone.
The CR Emulsion is a clinically-proven, first-of-its kind face cream that combines CBD, retinol, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
In a blinded study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, the CR Emulsion was shown to:
- Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
- Improve skin texture
- Reduce pore size
- Improve skin hydration
100% of patients felt more confident in the appearance of their skin over the course of the study.
AESTHETIC CONCERNS: Wrinkles | Fine Lines | Pore Size | Surface Roughness | Dehydration | Skin Laxity

Real results should look like real life. And, in real life, our faces move. Using Dr. Few's trademarked 4D Beauty assessment, the CR Emulsion study shows before and after videos in addition to photos, to show skin in motion, just like it is in real life interaction.
Frequently Asked Questions
The CR Emulsion study is published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. The full study can be found here: Link to CR Emulsion Study.
The CR Emulsion contains 0.2% retinol.
Yes, the CR Emulsion is designed with all skin types and skin tones in mind, even the most sensitive skin. In the unlikely event you do experience mild irritation, switch to using the CR Emulsion every other night instead of nightly. If serious irritation or an allergic reaction occurs, discontinue use immediately and consult a medical professional.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a component of hemp plants that is relatively new to skincare. Research has demonstrated that CBD has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and free radical damage. The improvements to skin observed in a six week study on the CR Emulsion suggest that CBD may have additive benefits, or even synergistic benefits, with retinol.
This product does not contain THC above 0.05%. All of the CBD used in the CR Emulsion is independently lab tested for purity, and never exceeds the USA's federally legal concentration of 0.3%.
This peptide ingredient helps stimulate collagen and elastin production, which both assist in filling wrinkles in the skin, as well as making the skin physically stronger.
This is a peptide also known as acetyl hexapeptide-8. It is used to help restore the skin and bind to water to help reduce outward signs of aging. Please see our full ingredient reference guide for information about our ingredients.
Like any retinol product, is not recommended to use the CR Emulsion while pregnant or breastfeeding. Always consult with your healthcare provider before starting a new skincare regimen while breastfeeding or pregnant.

Yes, the CR Emulsion contains no parabens or sulfates.
All AFORÉ products, including the CR Emulsion, are manufactured in the United States of America.
CANNABIDIOL (CBD):Also known as CBD, cannabidiol is a component of hemp and cannabis plants that is new to skincare. Dr. Julius Few and AFORÉ are the first to clinically investigate CBD's effects and safety on skin, in combination with other well-studied skincare ingredients. The CR Emulsion study was the first to demonstrate CBD's potentially synergistic effects with retinol, and how it may also help to reduce retinol's traditional side effects.
0.2% RETINOL:Retinol is a heavily-studied form of vitamin A that is used to increase skin cell turnover and collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
ARGIRELINE:This is a peptide also known as acetyl hexapeptide-8. It is used to help restore the skin and bind to water to help reduce outward signs of aging.
MATRIXYL:This peptide ingredient helps stimulate collagen and elastin production, which both assist in filling in wrinkles in the skin, as well as making the skin physically stronger.
HYALURONIC ACID:Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a humectant that your body produces naturally. HA can hold 1000x its weight in moisture, which makes it an excellent ingredient for hydrating and retaining moisture in the skin.
Apply two pumps to the entire face once daily in the evening before bed. Do not use if nursing or pregnant*.
Topical products containing retinol are not recommended for women who are nursing or pregnant.
