Yes, contrary to popular belief, retinol can be mixed or layered with AHA/BHA (Bioderma White Objective) and vitamin C (Strea C10) products. To avoid risk of skin irritation, you could alternate retinol with these products nightly. One night retinol, the next Bioderma White Objective + Strea C. That way you will be keeping your acids (ascorbic acid vitamin C, glycolic acid Bioderma) away from retinol.

Moisturizers can be layered once retinol has absorbed. Cetaphil Moisturizer is comedogenic.
