I have been an avid Retin A user for 30+ years. It started in my early twenties when I was breaking out due to pregnancy and hormones. During the early 80's there was a lot of hype in the news of how Retin A was treating aged skin and offered preventitive treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. I was sold, not only could I treat my acne, but simultaneously prevent the aging skin process! My dermatologist put me on a lower prescription strength Retin A, and my acne cleared up and my skin was glowing. Through the years I've been committed to Retin A.
After researching more about Vitamin A, with the desire to offer our clients our own formula of Vit. A Creme, I was asked by the Operations Manager of the leading Bio-Science Lab to stop Retin A for two weeks. I saw such improvement, in the texture and smoothness in my skin I haven't gone back to Retin A!
We launched Exceptionnelle A Creme with Retinyl Palmitate, Lactobacillus/Kelp Ferment Filtrate, Beta Carotene, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Anti-oxidants, and Nicacinamide, Vit. B-3. We believe it's the best on the market!
I don't miss the downside of sensitivity to sun and constant peeling. I am a true believer in Retinol, but for many people topical tretinoin (Retin A) has side effects, which include skin irritation. I am really honored to offer our Exceptionnelle A Creme with Retinyl Acetate, because it works just as well or better, because it has little irritation and no side effects or require medical supervision!
Recommendations on using Exceptionnelle A Creme (Retinyl Palmitate)
Start using Exceptionnelle A Creme Morning and Night! The beauty of Retinyl Palmitate is that it is a lower concentration of Retinol and is great for daytime use and not restricted to nightime use only. Always wear a sunscreen regardless of when you apply your Vitamin A Creme. If you are using Prescription Retin A, start slowly either with a low concentration or, if you've been recommended a potent formulation then introduce on alternating nights until your skin develops a tolerance to it. If you've had a bad experience with Vitamin A, don't give up, your skin will adjust, it's about finding the right formula that suits you.
