Treatment Retinol Serum
Miraculously gentle and safe: 7% RETINOL + VITAMIN C.
1oz | 30ml
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.
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.
Gentle Retinol Night Serum is for aging skin and Treatment Retinol is for acne related issues--same formulation but different categories because your additional products will be different depending on what your skin care concern is.
Boosts collagen production and speeds cell turnover with retinol and Vitamin C to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
Clears pores and controls breakouts.
Delivers the same results as a Retin-A product but without the irritation.
7% RETINOL Uses microencapsulated retinol that does not degrade even in a lower pH environment.
ISODODECANE Stabilized form of l-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) 3%.
PHOTOAGING REPAIR COMPLEX Proprietary microencapsulated resveratrol and superoxide dismutase (SOD) for a powerful antioxidant boost.
SODIUM SALICYLATE Sodium salicylate moderates inflammation, allowing use of a therapeutic amount of retinol without causing undue irritation, making it safe for sensitive skin.

Use at night only. Shake well before each use. Apply a thin layer of Treatment Retinol Serum after cleansing and misting. Follow that with an application of one of our recommended oil blends, such as Treatment Oil or 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. If irritation develops discontinue use and consult a physician. Keep in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
"Skincare for me is whatever the tiniest vial of oil I have on hand is, plus a targetted serum like Marie Veronique's Treatment Serum."
"I use Marie Veronique products day and night. I recently got a facial from Kristina Holey that was really informative and helped hone in my regime."
"The non-toxic formulas are rooted in science. Chemist Marie and bio-medical engineer daughter Jay collaborate on all formulas. "
"This is not her Farmers Market skincare. Give her this highly active (yet gentle enough for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin) duo of power serums [Vitamin C, E + Ferulic Acid Serum, Gentle Retinol Night Serum] from skincare guru Marie Veronique, to arm her with a protective antioxidant arsenal during the day and a potent natural retinol at night. After a few weeks of using these two serums, all the other flower children at the food co-op will be commenting on her radiant skin."
"For my face, I'm pretty devoted to Marie Veronique, which I discovered through this blog. My skin became so clear and glowing after I switched to her products."
