Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Night Serum
Forty years of studies prove retinol's 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.
RETINOL Uses microencapsulated retinol that does not degrade even in a lower pH environment.
L-ASCORBIC ACID The most potent Vitamin C.
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.
CERAMIDE COMPLEX Key component of top layer of skin, prevents moisture loss, keeps skin soft and supple.
COENZYME Q Powerful antioxidant.
