Miraculously gentle and safe: 7% RETINOL + VITAMIN C.
Forty years of studies prove retinol has extraordinary age delaying capabilities, and just as many studies show the powerful effects of Vitamin C, especially when combined with Vitamin E. More recent studies show how A, C and E work together to support superior collagen-building and antioxidant effects. Our high tech formula permits anhydrous Vitamin C and microencapsulated retinol, with stabilization assist from Vitamin E, to coexist to deliver near-miraculous results.
SAFETY NOTE: Retinol is the safe Vitamin A derivative, not to be confused with retinyl palmitate, which one study shows may enhance tumor growth in the presence of UV, or isotretinoin, which dermatologists prescribe for severe acne.
Use at night only. Shake well. Apply Gentle Retinol Night Serum as the last step in your nightly routine. Apply a thin layer after cleansing and application of our recommended oil blend, Marie Veronique Rejuvenating Night Oil. May be used every night. Not recommended for pregnant women, nursing mothers or anyone who finds it too irritating. Please use sunscreen daily, as retinoid products do have exfoliant properties.
