Retinol .30% - Anti-aging, Sun Damage, Adult Acne, Minimize Pores

Our Retinol Serum is formulated in a special delivery system that ensures stabilization of the molecule without oxidation and enhances cutaneous absorption of Vitamin A through the epidermis, reaching even the prickle layer.

Most retinol creams and lotions don't work because their levels of Retinol are too low in addition to being formulated in cheap, ineffective delivery systems.  

Our serum is obtained at 12,000 psi (pounds per square inch) under microfluidizing conditions.  
What does this mean for your results???  Our Retinol will absorb deeply into your skin, penetrating into the prickle layer (four layers deep....see below).

Skin layers:

1 - Horny layer (stratum corneum)
2 - Clear layer (stratum lucidum)
3 - Granular layer (stratum granulosum)
4 - Prickle-cell layer (stratum spinosum)
5 - Basal layer (stratum basale) Retinol serum is necessary for the growth, maintenance and function
of the skin, and also prevents premature aging.

Why Use Retinol?

Retinol is pure, active Vitamin A which is scientifically proven to produce healthy, plump skin cells. Because Retinol's molecular structure is small enough to penetrate the outer layers of the epidermis, it can repair deeper layers within the skin.  Collagen and elastin are positively impacted by the benefits of Retinol. 

Retinol stimulates collagen production.

Retinol helps to rebuild and repair elastin fibers.

Retinol accelerates cell turnover, encouraging dead skin cells to naturally exfoliate more quickly, thus revealing healthy, fresh cells.

Retinol is excellent in aiding the repair of sun-damaged skin.

Retinol provides overall skin revitalization.

Retinol minimizes the appearance of large pores.

Retinol is helpful in the treatment of acne without drying.

Synthetic forms of Vitamin A are well-known as Retin-A® and Tretinoin, however both are
much more irritating than pure, natural Retinol.

Retinol, used as directed, results in smooth skin, refined pores, revitalized texture and tone,
fewer lines/wrinkles, and visible improvement of sun damaged skin.

Acneic Skin Types:

Retinol helps to fade acne scarring, is a helpful, natural active ingredient in the fight against acneic skin, 
and will reduce the appearance of large pores.

Summary of Benefits:

  • Accelerates cell turnover
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Rebuilds elastin fibers
  • Improves fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin tones and uneven pigmentation
  • Improves texture/smoothness of skin
  • Provides a more youthful glow to the skin

Major difference with Retinol use
Firstly, I'm pretty impressed with the result from using this Retinol serum, I have used other kind of Retinol creams in the past with bad experience; my face would always breakout and I never have the patience to wait it out. Well this Retinol serum is Amazing!!! I have the best experience with it. I honestly can say that I have been using it every other night for a month now and my face feels and look great, seriously, I love it! I'm in my mid 30's and struggled with cystic acne since I was around 25 years old. Ever since I discovered MUAC website and products it has tremendously changed my life, no doubt. I can say with confidence that I have no get a cystic acne in over a year. Also I used the glycolic 70% peel once every week, sometimes I switch it with the Mandelic peel, and I also used a routine Salicylic cleanser daily. I created this regimen and it works fine for me. Also the Retinol serum has really improved my skin texture, and years of stubborn facial acne scars is vanishing, I truly never thought these scar would go away, with help of using these products make a big difference in my skin, now when I looked in the mirror all I see is beautiful skin. I can now go outside without putting makeup on. Thank you MUAC for creating such potent/effective products.

Doesn't work for me
I don't want to be the Debbie Downer here, but I think it's useful to mention that perhaps retinal doesn't work for everyone. I had very high hopes after reading about retinol and especially the muac reviews, and I am still convinced this must be a great product - just not for me. I used the entire sample size (it took about three months, I started off using it every other day and worked up to daily) and I still had the worst breakouts of my life by the end of it. Maybe the purging would have ended eventually, but I couldn't handle it anymore. My skin cleared up almost instantly when I stopped using the retinol. I have acne prone skin that's not at all sensitive, so I didn't have any trouble with redness or irritation... it felt mild and innocuous on my skin. I ordered lac-luronic and gly-luronic serums instead and I have had much better results (I use the lac- on my face at night and the gly- on my chest). I read that people who don't react well to retinol seem to have better luck with those products instead, and that is obviously the case for me, so maybe there is some truth there.

Retinol 30%
I recently purchased this product and have been using it every other day per the directions and I am extremely happy with what this product is doing. It started to reduce my fine lines after two days and it has also helped tighten my skin. Definitely a keeper.

Butter Smooth
I was skeptical because other retinol products make me break out. I have fair skin with skin damage and freakles. I also have rosacea. I've been using this product for about a month and already see a difference in my skin thickness, pores and clarity. I also have been using the gly-luronic serum at night so who knows if the retinol can take all of the credit. The retinol glides on beautifully. I have combination dry skin. It leaves my skin looking really nice without being oily. I love how it feels and how it absorbs. I use it each day for maximum results. I will continue to buy this product as a staple in my routine.

My Favourite MUAC Product
Of all of the things I've tried from MUAC, this is the best. I'm acne and hyperpigmentation prone, normal/combo skinned, have recently started to develop shallow scars and have years of experience using acids and low strength (0.1% retinol). DISCLAIMER: When I initially purchased this serum, I hadn't used a retinol serum for several years, but had been exfoliating (via acids) daily, knew my tolerance, and knew that my skin responded well to retinol products. That said, after a month of use, I already know this will be a regular repurchase for me. The first night I used it, I had a few under the skin bumps waiting to turn into angry spots. I put on a layer of retinol and by morning, it was as if they were never there. This product makes my skin feel incredibly smooth, silky and hydrated. I'm convinced it's gradually helping to fill in my (shallow) acne scarring, does wonders at preventing new acne breakouts, and makes my skin GLOW. I've been using it every other day without irritation, but I'm considering using it more frequently, as sometimes in the off days, my skin will take its chances and a spot will crop up.

review of retinol .30%
I will keep this product as one of my 'facial staples'. I have had a rx of Retin A but this product does more for my complexion than the rx strength. So far for the short time I have been using it I've noticed a smoothing of my complexion, and a more even skin tone. YEP....this is a staple!!

Love this!
Upon recommendation from my dermatologist, I ordered .30 Retinol to use to decrease the size of my sebaceous hyperplasia. So far it's worked great, finally flaking after using for about a week every night. The dr. said it would do that and it doesn't take much at all to completely cover my face. In fact, I was looking at the bottle this morning and you can't even tell that I've used any. It's in a good, sturdy bottle with a pump dispenser. I received it in a timely matter and GREAT packaging! I feel like it's a pure product that I'm putting on my face and love the soft skin I'm getting as a result!

Love this
After trying so many products and being tired of adult acne and wrinkles I tried this. Put it on four night in a row. My acne healed up significantly. My skin is oily but can get dry from products. This neither made it oily or dry, it seemed to even it out. Very slight rosacea appearance, which is probably from not having a night off. No change in wrinkles yet, but will continue to use. Could never trust another company like MUAC!

.30% Retinol
This was my first time using Retinol and I used it about 2-3 times a week, every other night. I did experience a tiny bit of dryness, and it did make my skin texture a little different. I used the Micro Polish to get rid of that weird texture.

Great professional strength retinol
This product goes on very smoothly and feels like velvet on your skin. A caution that it is irritating in the begining, so definitely start with every other night, maybe even every third night. I have seen visible improvement in both my acne and wrinkles around my eyes in just 3 weeks of use. Great product, but can be irritating, so let yourself build up to it.

The Best.
I am in love with this product. I've used it for three months, nearly every night (starting off every other night), and the results are incredible - better than prescription Retin-A, as there is NO flaking. My stubborn little forehead lines and under-eye wrinkles, as well as hyper-pigmentation from past acne have all noticeably diminished. I use this at night with a BHA product and in the morning my skin is glowing and refreshed, as opposed to tired and sallow. It's simple, easy to layer, and sinks into my skin quickly. The only downside is my skin is more sensitive to harsh topicals (benzoyl peroxide can burn me while using this), but the good news I don't need them as often while using this. HG!

Good
It has been 2 months. I use it every-other-night on my whole face. It absorbs so quickly, and in the morning you can visible see the skin looking glowy and soft. Besides that I haven't seen any wrinkles or acne scar softening in appearance. I don't think it has help with acne treatment but importantly it does not cause me to break out with its use. Hopefully with continue use, I see more exciting results.

The real thing
I have tried several retinol products, some of them claiming to have 1% retinol, and the results were minimal. When I purchased this product, I considered getting the 0.5%, but decided on the 0.3%, and I am so glad I did. This 0.3% works, and it is powerful! I am so glad I did not start with 0.5% despite using the 1% strength in other retinol products. I will gradually build to 0.5%, but this strength does work, with minimal side effects of irritation/flakiness. I have been using this for 4 weeks, and have noticed a significant change in my face, and fine lines. I have received several compliments. I sometimes combine it with a Vitamin C cream, which are supposed to work synergistically. I am so thrilled, I am now on auto-ship for this retinol. Truly, the most effective skincare product I have ever purchased, and I do not say that lightly. Thank you MUAC.

I use this on my forehead and between my eyebrows for those thinking lines every third day. I can really tell the difference after about a month of use. I use the Gly-Luronic Acid Serum on the rest of my face as it is gentler and my skin is sensitive.

Great product. Makes my skin glow!
A few weeks after I started this, I was told my skin was glowing. I am very pleased with this. You do need to be careful to use gentle products with this. I did a Mandelic Acid peel and followed with this which was not a good idea! I have had this for around 4 months and still have tons of product left.

Love This Product
I have been using the Retinol serum (.30%) for several years and have been very pleased with the results. I just had a dermatology appointment a few days ago and my doctor commented on how good my skin looks for my age (55). I think it is because I use the Retinol at night and the Peptide Serum with Botanicals each morning. I wish it were offered in an even stronger concentration if that would further enhance the results - in the meantime I will continue to use the .30%!
