Learn all there is to know about our Total RF Serum.

Total RF Serum with ingredients and benefits

As the days get longer and temperatures rise, many of us are still feeling (and seeing) the negative effects this winter had on our skin: Think that dull, dry look that no one wants, but becomes more common as we get older.

If you’re hoping to say goodbye to dullness and hello to energized, healthy-looking skin this spring, Rodan + Fields has a handful of options that can help with that mission, from Regimens to our serums, body moisturizers, and more.

As you begin to work to make sure your skin glows through the end of 2022 and beyond, one of the first products you should prioritize is Rodan + Fields’ Total RF Serum. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

What R+F’s Total RF Serum is

The Total RF Serum is Rodan + Fields’ most comprehensive anti-aging serum. It features RF TriEnergy Complex and energizes millions of surface cells by 200%, addressing key signs of aging.

The Total RF serum revitalizes the skin so you’ll end up seeing stronger, healthier, more resilient skin at every level. While you’ll see visible results when you use this serum on its own, those results can be enhanced when you combine it with other R+F products and regimens.

The Total RF Serum was formulated for people over the age of 18 as a comprehensive solution for anyone who wants to either get ahead of visible signs of aging or treat them. We all see signs of aging at different points, but in general people over 25 can benefit from using the Total RF Serum either in combination with one of our Regimens or on its own. 

What makes Rodan + Fields’ Total RF Serum different from other serums

A serum is an important part of any skincare routine, because as we age, our skin is compromised by both environmental factors and the general process of aging. The result is fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and dryness, and loss of firmness. Adding a serum into your routine can help address and slow down key signs of aging.

Here’s what distinguishes the Total RF Serum from other serums: It features Rodan + Fields’ new proprietary patent-pending RF TriEnergy Complex. This technology energizes millions of surface cells to address all the key signs of visible aging like elasticity, firmness, fine lines, plumpness, texture, even skin tone, radiance, hydrations, softer skin, smaller pore, and glowing, revitalized skin.

What ingredients does Rodan + Fields’ Total RF Serum include?

The Total RF Serum includes a handful of key ingredients that help give skin that glowing, energized look. These include:

RF TriEnergy Complex

This technology combines Ayurvedic Sandalwood, Indian Kino Extract and Omega 6 Fatty Acid into a unique ratio that works together to deliver re-invigorated, younger-looking skin.

RF3 Antioxidant Complex

The RF3 antioxidant complex was developed and patented by Rodan + Fields scientists. It fortifies skin so it’s more resilient, and it helps defend against environmental triggers so your skin is more even-looking.


You can think of ceramides as the glue that holds our skin cells together and keeps our skin healthy. Our skin makes ceramides naturally, but it makes less of it as we age. When this happens, it leads to dry, rough skin. The role of ceramides in the total RF serum exists to help fortify the skin’s barrier and retain moisture. This results in smoother, firmer-looking skin with fewer fine lines.


Calcium in a skincare product? Yes, it’s a thing — and it plays an important role. Calcium helps with visible firmness to make skin feel tighter and more resilient. Most calcium in the skin is found in the outermost layer of the skin, also called the epidermis, where it has been shown to play a crucial role in barrier protection and skin homeostasis.

Other products to consider

The Total RF Serum can be used on its own, and you’ll see some great results from it. But it was formulated to enhance any Rodan + Fields regimen. This can include the Redefine Regimen (an anti-aging favorite for Rodan + Fields customers), Reverse Regimen (revitalizes and brighten), Soothe Regimen (revitalies and relieves skin), Unblemish Regimen (helps treat acne), and Recharge Regimen (focused on revitalizing and protecting your skin). 

Whether you use the Total RF Serum on its own or in combination with other Rodan + Fields Regimens, you’ll see some impressive results.

As with any active product we recommend patch testing Total RF Serum before applying it full face.  Please see instructions on our website.
