Caldera + Lab Skincare Review: Unbiased Analysis & Product Breakdown

Updated Date: by Reet Patel

You only get the right skincare product once.  Before that, either everything is disastrous, or probably you are a beginner.

Caldera + Lab is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that you might want to show tender love and care (TLC) towards your skin.  The company was established in 2018 by Stacy Keibler and Jared Pobre.  

Before that, both partners were busy with their job routine, wherein one day, Jared noticed signs of aging.  It made him realize that it’s time to find a suitable product to combat the early signs of aging.

When surfing through the internet, what he achieved was not a great product but disappointment. So that’s when both founders decided to quit the job and make men’s grooming products.

All the Caldera + Lab skincare products work amazingly well on men of all ages and skin types.  The skincare brand is a certified B corporation, which means they make products responsibly and even donate to social causes.  What’s more important to know as a customer is that the Caldera + Lab even allows Made Safe’s inspectors to inspect their production chain.  We consider Caldera + Lab – a diamond in a coal mine.

In-Depth Review on Caldera + Lab Products

Face Serum (The Good Multifunctional Serum)

the good serum review

The Good multi-functional serum by Caldera + Lab is one of its kind, just like you.  After a lot of research and clinical trials, this non-toxic serum was crafted by a team of scientists.  Since The Good Face serum is under the observation of the ECOCERT COSMOS-certified facility, MADE SAFE, Leaping Bunny, and PETA, there is no chance for any harsh surfactants.

So what’s there in The Good Serum?

The Good Serum is 100% plant-based, and every single drop is a blend of 27 active botanicals, wild-harvested from the Teton mountain range or grown in organic farms.

All 27 botanicals are pure and not modified, so they deliver the results that meet the expectations.  Before letting you know the benefits of the ingredients, let me tell which are grown through organic farming and which are from wild harvesting.

List of Ingredients that are grown:

  • Apricot Kernel  Oil
  • Sunflower Seed Oil
  • Alfalfa Sativa Extract
  • Elderberry Extract
  • Sage Leaf Extract
  • Prickly Seed Oil
  • Safflower Seed Oil
  • Epilobium Flower Extract
  • Spilanthes Extract
  • Raspberry Extract
  • Red Bergamot Flower Oil
  • Sea Buckthorn Fruit Extract
  • Yarrow Flower Oil
  • Jojoba Seed  Oil
  • Meadowfoam Seed  Oil
  • Ubiquinone
  • Tocopherol
  • Bisabolol
  • Frankincense Resin Extract

List of Ingredients that are taken from Wild Harvesting:

  • Fireweed Herb Extract
  • Elderflower Extract
  • Nettle Leaf Extract
  • Dandelion Leaf Extract
  • Yarrow Flower Extract

All the ingredients work with the microbiome (good bacteria that protect your skin from disease-causing bacteria).  Since the ingredients are antioxidant-rich, they will benefit your skin the most.

Now you might be thinking, what is wild harvesting?

In simple words, it means using plants without compromising their natural ecosystem and effectiveness.

Since you have seen a long list of natural ingredients, let’s know what you are slathering on your face is how much benefits:

Benefits of Wild-harvested and Organic Ingredients

Not just matching every skin type and balancing pH levels was in mind when choosing the ingredients. The founders teaming up with scientists also wanted to address specific skin concerns, such as:

  • Dark spots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

Besides, they wanted the lightweight serum to:

  • Improves overall skin tone and texture
  • Improves skin appearance by increasing collagen production 
  • Protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays
  • Combat environmental stressors
  • Maintain natural oils

Since the excellent serum is based on oil, you might feel oily, but trust us, it will be absorbed within a few seconds.  Also, the oil-based serum is not going to clog skin pores.  With regular use for a few weeks, it becomes a daily routine.

For customer satisfaction, Caldera + Lab allowed third parties to conduct clinical trials on Caldera Lab serum.  The results were:

  • Drastic reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improvement in skin elasticity
  • Reduces dark spots 
  • Enhances skin tone

Outer Appearance, How to Use & Serum Amount

The Good serum comes in a heavy ceramic bottle with a unique screw-top dropper applicator that anyone might have never seen before.  When the glass dropper applicator is in the bottle, press the button on the top of the cap, and then pour 4-6 drops into your palms.

The amount of the Good serum varies since every skin type requires more or less serum.  Here is the table-wise structure:

Skin TypeNumber of Drops
Dry Skin10-12 
Normal Skin 7-9 
Oily Skin4-6 

The idea is to make your skin oil-free and bring a world of difference to your skincare regimen.  Also, it is advisable to apply the Good Serum at nighttime, so it absorbs without getting affected by external pollutants.


When comparing the Good Face Serum with other face serums, it seems to be a budget-friendly one.  The company even offers a membership offer wherein you get a chance to choose a frequency of delivery at a lower price than a one-time purchase.

  • Improves skin health
  • Removes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Works on all skin types
  • No irritative ingredients
  • It makes skin smoother and better
  • Takes time in absorbing
  • Leaving oily residue
  • Quite expensive for beginners

So this is all about Caldera Lab Review of The Good Serum review, which is one of the clinically proven and effective skincare products.  Now let’s take a look at another great product of this trio to get impressive results.

Face Cleanser (The Clean Slate Balancing Cleanser)

As the name says, The Clean Slate Balancing Cleanser does more than the expectations.  It flushes away all-day impurities and makes your skin feel refreshed.  Besides, it even balances your pH levels just like the best men’s facial serum, The Good.

Now how it does and why you should use it is explained in the below section:

Just like The Good multi-functional, this one has quite a few similar ingredients, and there are even more:

  • Arnica
  • Fireweed
  • Yarrow
  • Geranium
  • Juniper Berry
  • Chamomile
  • Plant-Derived Squalane
  • Frankincense
  • Ginger Root
  • Calendula
  • Probiotic Ferment Filtrate
  • Nelumbo Lotus
  • Glacial Minerals
  • Oat Amino Acids
  • Saccharide
  • Isomerate
  • Nettle
  • Bilberry
  • Vetiver Root
  • Cardamom Seed

Now that you know what is in it let’s understand how these ingredients benefit you.

Benefits of Balancing Cleanser Ingredients

Since The Clean Slate Balancing Cleanser is made to slough away impurities from your face, you also get other benefits, which are as follows:

  • Nourish & Hydrate 
  • Shields off your skin from external pollutants
  • Soothes skin and makes your skin barrier stronger
  • Makes your skin moisturized
  • Improve skin texture and elasticity
  • Tighten skin pores

The Cleanser is primarily made to work on sensitive skin, unlike other face cleansers.  Nevertheless, even other skin types can also wash their faces, such as dry, oily, combination, and normal.

Outer Appearance, How to Use & Balancing Amount 

The Clean Slate Balancing serum comes in a pump-based, hard-shell bottle.  Just press the pump to dispense the gel-based liquid. Next, spread them across your hands until it lathers up. Next, apply it to your face and massage every part of your face.  Lastly, rinse off with water and pat dry with a towel.

Use The Cleanser twice a day for optimum results. It just requires a small amount to cover the entire face.  Since the required quantity is less, it will last for quite a long time.  The only downside with the opaque bottle is that you will never know how much is left.


Like Caldera Lab The Good Face Serum, this one is also pocket-friendly and available in a membership facility. So just become a member and choose your frequency to get the non-toxic Cleanser on or before time.

  • Vegan-friendly
  • Cruelty-free
  • Removes all dirt and harmful bacteria
  • Balances your pH levels
  • Ideal for sensitive skin
  • Requires two to three pumps
  • No idea how much quantity left inside bottle

Now that you know the two most essential skincare products let’s also know the last one.  It will not only complete your skincare routine but also add beauty to your bathroom counter.

Face Moisturizer (The Base Layer Fortifying Moisturizer)

Since you have been using The Clean Slate in the morning, you can maximize its results by pairing it up with The Base Layer Fortifying Moisturizer.

It will make you ready for the entire day’s grind.  In simple words, it will protect your skin against environmental stress with the help of plant stem cells and adaptogenic actives.

So what it includes:

  • Buddleja Plant Stem Cells
  • Elkhorn Sea Moss
  • Encapsulated Microalgae
  • Immortelle Flower
  • Tara Tree Flower

These are the best possible ingredients that do wonders for your skin out of the long list of ingredients.

So what are those wonders?

Benefits of The Base Layer Fortifying Moisturizer

  • Protects skin from UV rays
  • Lowers down melanin production to prevent skin discoloration 
  • Prevents early signs of aging
  • Blocks blue light radiation from digital screens like mobile and laptops

These are the same light that even causes fine lines and wrinkles.

Now you can go out in the sun or binge-watch movies even without worrying about aging or tanning.  It doesn’t mean that you won’t require sunscreen; it’s just that it will add a layer to your skin so that the sun rays won’t cause much damage.  Also, the moisturizer absorbs quickly, unlike other moisturizers, without leaving any oily residue.  Lastly, you don’t need too much to moisturize your face.

We notice that with regular use, one can get the desired results within one week of application.  You will see fewer signs of aging and will make you look younger.  Also, if you have enlarged pores, using this moisturizer every day will get rid of it, too.

Outer Appearance, How to Use & The Base Layer Amount 

The Base Layer Fortifying Moisturizer comes in a 1.7 fluid-ounce low, cylindrical glass jar.  Unlike the squeeze tube moisturizers, this one is easily accessible.  Also, you get to know the quantity left inside the jar.

To apply, you need to scrape out a white cream-like moisturizer with your finger pads and spread them across your hands.  

Apply the moisturizer evenly to cover every area of your face.  But remember to apply sunscreen before applying moisturizer if you have plans to go out.


Price is the most fantastic thing we liked about Caldera Lab’s product line.  Despite everything being all-natural, Caldera + Lab keeps its product’s price in the mid-range.

Just like Caldera Lab’s The Clean Slate and The Good Multi-functional, this moisturizer by Caldera Lab also has an average price range.  Besides, you get to enroll in membership savings.  And not to forget, you can choose the frequency of order according to your needs.

  • Shrinks enlarged pores
  • No oily residue
  • Absorbs quickly
  • Less is more
  • Long-lasting
  • Some users complain pairing up a moisturizer with sunscreen can be too oily
  • Some users even complain about the moisturizer not offering a matte finish

Now that you know how Caldera Lab’s products work and deliver exceptional results, let’s understand what makes them so crucial than others.

Why are Caldera + Lab’s Products Superior to Others?

Firstly, the consideration of all-natural ingredients is one factor in choosing Caldera + Lab’s products.  It also means that it works incredibly well on all skin types, whether oily, dry, or sensitive.

Many popular skincare companies use chemicals that are cheap and ineffective just to bag out the maximum profit. However, when we researched and analyzed, we found Caldera + Lab to be one of the few brands that believe in running a profitable business and ensuring sustainability.

Secondly, the contribution of Caldera Lab’s products to environmental impact is relatively low as compared to its peers.  The packaging contains cardboard, and the bottles are mostly glass material. In addition, the products are cruelty-free, which means there was no animal testing done when making them.

Lastly, if you genuinely want better cleansing, moisturizing, and nourishing, using Caldera lab products could be one of the best decisions of your life.

So this is all about the Caldera lab review, which includes all the products they sell.  Now let’s see how the company offers post-sales service.

Refund, Return, and Shipping Policy

Instead of just selling and making profits, what we know about Caldera + Lab is it even contributes to social causes and protects the environment.  But there is another side, too, wherein the Caldera + Lab ensures maximum satisfaction.

Unlike most other skincare brands, Caldera + Lab offers a 60-day satisfaction guarantee. In addition, if you remain dissatisfied with the products, the company provides an entire refund facility without any questions asked.

Besides, the shipping policy is relatively user-friendly. For example, you get details of your packaging in your email to track it on the go.

Our Findings on Caldera + Lab Skincare Regimen

All the products of Caldera + Lab contain only 27 botanicals chosen out of 2000 botanicals during the development process.  The founders and scientists narrowed the list down after considering the efficacy and adverse effects.

Apart from ingredients, Caldera + Lab even focuses on its packaging material.  Unlike other brands, they do not use anything that can cause harm to the environment.  Besides, they ensure sustainable packaging, which is why they use glass material.

Now that you know how the skincare products are built and what is considered for packaging let us share our personal experience with the products.

Improved Skin Tone

An improvement in the skin tone was the first thing we noticed after regular use of The Regimen.  And not only us but the results were visible to others as well.  Along with the improvement, it even protects our skin against pollutants.

Enhances Skin Appearance

Laughing is good for your health, but it’s unsuitable for your appearance when it creates crow’s feet near your eyes.  We suffered through this, and let me tell you, it looks so weird that you might feel embarrassed.  That is another thing of the past for us now.

Tighter Skin

Droopy skin is one of the signs of aging, which can happen at any age due to sun exposure, sleep deprivation, and weak collagen production.  Since this can happen at any age, especially when you are, you need an affordable and effective skin treatment.  Caldera + Lab is one of the trustworthy skincare options to choose from other skincare brands.

So that’s all about Caldera Lab The Good, The Clean Slate, and The Base Layer.  If you still have any questions, keep reading the next section.


1. Is Caldera Lab legit?

Caldera lab strives to make the men’s skincare routine incredible. That’s one of the reasons the company selects the ingredients after considering their efficacy. In addition, each product has passed through advanced processing, which is why it delivers quality results. Besides, Caldera Lab is associated with many leading organizations like PETA, ECOCERT, MADE SAFE, Leaping Bunny, and PEFC. These organizations certify Caldera + Lab to be safe and all-natural.

2. How often do you use Caldera Labs?

Caldera + Lab is a brand that offers three skincare products made out of all-natural ingredients. Since there are three products, they all are made to use at different times of the day. Wash your face with Caldera lab cleanser, and then apply moisturizer in the morning. After a long hectic day, apply The Good Serum at nighttime for better results.

3. How to use the Good serum?

Pour serum drops in your hands, according to the chart added in the article. You can also go through the instructions on the backside of the bottle. Then, use your finger pads to gently apply Caldera lab The Good serum on your face and neck. Pat the serum so that it quickly absorbs and leaves no oily residue. Don’t rigorously massage and allow it to absorb on its own.

4. At what age should we use a face serum?

If you are in your late 20’s or early 30’s, you must start applying the face serum since it is the age when your skin is prone to signs of aging. However, you can continue using it even if you are retired.


Caldera Lab is passionate about making men’s skincare routine easy, unique, and exciting.  Apart from making profits, the company also delivers qualitative results that your skin deserves.  Caldera Lab is super-advanced and worth every penny, from selecting and sourcing botanicals from the Teton mountain range and organic farming to creating the packaging sustainably.

Lastly, we would say that we love Caldera + Lab products since they are non-toxic and effective proven in clinical studies.  Also, when used, we noticed a change in our skin. Therefore, the Regimen (Three product combo) justifies the investment.  If you have such products that openly claim and not only just claim but also deliver results, do let us know.  Also, you can share your Caldera + Lab The Regimen experience with us.
