Retinol Molecular Serums 10 - 20 - 30
Your skin requires an application of Vitamin A every day to function at its peak. Ensure your skin ages slowly with a daily application of Retinol. Encourage new tissue growth and proper function each evening before bed for best results. Our Molecular Retinol Serum comes in three different levels (.10%, .20% and .30%). Always begin with the mildest percentage and only move forwardif you feel it is necessary. Many people will remain with the .10% for years. The daily recommended dose of Retinol is only .05%, so even our mildest formulation is already 2x stronger. This is the best retinol you will find over the counter to help your skin:
- Prevent premature aging.
- Improve the growth of skin cells.
- Ensure proper maintenance and function of skin.
- Improve your acne.
Our Retinol Is Special!
Most retinol creams and serums are virtually useless? The main reason is that they do not deliver a significant enough amount of retinol into the skin's cells. Secondly, they cannot get the retinol deep enough into the skin. We have solved this issue by formulating the retinol in a special delivery system. This system ensures stabilization of the molecule without oxidation, and enhances cutaneous absorption of Vitamin A through the epidermis. Our serum is obtained at 12,000 psi under micro fluidizing conditions. Our delivery system can get the Vitamin as deep as your PRICKLE layer! This is 4 layers deep!
Which percentage should I choose?
- .10% - If you are just beginning your retinol usage or have sensitive skin always begin here.
- .20% - If you have acne, are ready to move up in strength, or have used prescription Renova in the past, start here.
- .30% - If you have been using RetinA and are switching to over the counter, choose here or Step 4 Luminosity .50% Cream.
What is Retinol and How Does it Work?
Retinol serum is necessary for the growth, maintenance and function of the skin. It also prevents premature aging of the skin. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. It is enzymatically converted in the human skin to Retinoic Acid. Retinoic acid has direct effect on skin cells, and can adjust their metabolism toward a more youthful state. Vitamin A also works extremely well on your acne! Retinol can help to shed the top surface of skin as well as deeper inside the follicles, reducing plugs.
Retinol works by stimulating the body's production of collagen, (one of the key building blocks of skin). This rebuilding action can make wrinkles look less severe and reduce the appearance of splotchy-ness, age spots, and sun damage. Other popular Vitamin A treatments are RetinA tm which is mainly for Acne, and Renova tm which is for Aging skin.
Who Is It Good For?
This serum is excellent for all skin types. It is especially valuable for weathered skin types showing excessive signs of aging. It will help to smooth and freshen the skin's appearance. On a personal note! Jennifer finds it very helpful with her acne prone skin!

I have been using .30 Retinol Molecular Serum for the past few years. This is a product I cannot go without! I am in my mid 30's and I feel like my skin looks better than others my same age!

SOFTENS LINES AND WRINKLES
This is my fourth week using the retinol molecular serum .30 and I love it. I've noticed a difference in the softening of my lines and even the deeper forehead wrinkles. They are becoming less noticable. In fact, the other day while playing cards with a group of people, a friend said out of the blue "you have no wrinkles on your forehead, how is that possible?" (I'm 55) So, I told her about the retinol serum from Platinum Skin Care I had been using and directed her to your site. Thanks Platinum.

This product is now a staple in my evening regimen. I used to break out very badly in my chin area. No matter what product I tried I would get acne that actually would leave dark marks on my skin. I was always afraid to try new products and afraid to even wear makeup because of my skins sensitivity. I want to say it took 3-4 mos for this product to clear up my skin (I almost gave up) but I am so glad I didn't because now it keeps my skin clear, I can actually wear makeup, plus it keeps my skin looking fresh!

UPDATED REVIEW -- RE: GOOD PRODUCT, BUT...
This is an updated review that I made a while back. At the end of this month, it will be the 3 month mark of using this product. My breakouts have stopped. My skin is balanced... not too oily and not too dry. But the reason I had to make the updated review now is because my husband just randomly told me how clean and clear my skin looked while we were talking. This is the first POSITIVE comment he has made on my skin. And I must admit, my skin is looking a lot better than it has for a long while. I have less breakouts, my old acne marks are almost gone, and my skin looks more hydrated. I didn't run out yet, but I just bought a second bottle with coupons. I also use the 10% glycolic toner about once per day. This toner most likely added to the benefit of the retinol. Like I said in my previous review, if this retinol were sold in higher percentage, it would be perfect! *See Luminosity.

BROKE OUT VERY BAD! - RETRACTED REVIEW
I previously wrote a review complaining of bad breakouts from using this product. Following Platinum's advice, I cut back my application frequency to a few times a week and can now say I LOVE this product. I rarely use it all over my face, preferring to use it more as a spot/blemish treatment as it works great at clearing up breakouts. I'm a little scared to put it all over my face only because I think I'd be over-exfoliating my face which I believe was what was causing the initial breakouts (I was previously using the glycolic serum in the mornings and retinol at night, which I think was just too much exfoliation). However, using glycolic as an all over face treatment and retinol as a spot/localized treatment has been great.

RETINOL 10 VS. 30
I originally bought the sample size of of the 10% serum and didn't see a whole lot of difference. Next I purchased a full size of the 30% which is fantastic. Unless you have really sensitive skin that takes a long time to acclimate, I would suggest doing the same. The full size lasts a LONG time and the results with the 30% are much better. ***Platinum comment*** Many people find that the .30% will cause their skin to be very sensitive (especially if you are using other strong products at the same time). It is true that the .10% does not cause irritation. Please be cautious though and start off with a sample size of the .30% to be sure you are not going to be bothered.

Retinol .10 is OUTSTANDING !!! 5
Posted by BENJAMIN O. on
Retinol .10 is OUTSTANDING !!! It is sad that most people are not educated when it comes to skincare and think a higher concentration will yield better results. Too high of a concentration can actaully damage skin due to excessive inflammation which in turn breaks down the skin. .10 is perfect, you get the amazing cell turnover from the retinol with minimum irritation, hence skin improvement. I would not recommend this everyday, maybe every 3 days at night is ideal.
I have been using this 5

I have been using this product every second day for about two weeks and I am loving it so far! I have just moved up to the .30 from the .20 and I did experience some dryness for the first few days but that's settled now. My skin is clearer! Very happy
OMG THIS IS AMAZING 5

I have used lots of retinol products before and they dont hold a candle to platinums retinol. I saw results in just one use. I have sensitive skin so I am starting out with .10 and slowing working my way up. this product is more powerful and more effect then any other retinol product line I have ever used. I cant believe how effect this and all their other products are. Hands down this is the best line of products I have ever used!!!!!!!!!!!
