0.3% Retinol SR Complex
A powerful yet gentle retinol complex designed for beginners and those with mild skin concerns. Our formula uses industry leading Poly-Pore® Technology* to encapsulate our high potency pure retinol and gently release it over time to visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin tone and texture, and reduce imperfections without the irritation and redness often associated with retinol products. Specially formulated with additional powerhouse ingredients Vitamins C & E to maximize your results plus Squalane to boost hydration and reduce irritation and redness. Cellular turnover is boosted and skin is noticeably smoother, firmer and more radiant-looking.
For skin that is new to retinol use, to condition skin prior to use of Retinol 0.5%, or for those with sensitive skin.
*Poly-Pore® is a registered trademark of Minerals Technologies Inc.
*New to retinol or have sensitive skin? This is the perfect place to start!*
Cleanse and tone your face and apply any lightweight serums before use. Apply a thin layer of 0.3% Retinol SR Complex to face, neck and decolletage. Follow with your favourite cream or moisturizer, as desired. Daily use of SPF 30 or higher is essential as retinol use naturally makes the skin more sensitive to the sun.
To reduce the chance of initial dryness or redness, we suggest beginning with one application, once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency up to every evening as tolerated by your skin.
We recommend stepping up to Vivier Retinol 0.5% upon completion of your first tube if daily application is well tolerated.

Q: Do I need a prescription for 0.3% Retinol SR Complex?
A: No. 0.3% Retinol SR Complex is available without a prescription.
Q: What is the precaution when using retinol?
A: Since retinol use makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, proper protection with an SPF 30 or higher is essential. To further reduce the chance of any sun sensitivity, we recommend applying our retinol complexes at night.
Q: Can retinol products be used by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?
A: We do not recommend retinol products for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Please consult your doctor before use.
Q: How long does it take to see results from retinol use?
A: Not all retinol products are created equal so results can vary significantly by brand. Thanks to our high potency pure retinol, complimentary quality ingredients, and Poly-Pore® slow-release delivery technology, you can expect to see noticeable results with little to no irritation in 2-3 weeks.
Q: Can I use this product after professional treatments?
A: Retinol is known to be a great results booster and can be used to help maintain results from a wide variety of anti-aging and pigmentation protocols such as peels and facials. Due to the wide range of treatments available and uniqueness of each patient’s skin, we always recommend consulting your doctor or esthetician for medical advice post-treatment.

I'm loving this product. Moisturizing but not greasy like some retinol lotions and serums. Able to use nightly with no irritation! Will repurchase a Vivier retinol, perhaps in the next strength up next time. I like how it can be used around the eyes and lips without causing redness and flaking.VPVivier Pharma2 months ago
We're so happy to hear you're enjoying the results of our 0.3% Retinol SR Complex! Thank you for your positive review. We don't recommend, however, to apply around the eye as it's not suitable for the delicate/thinner skin of the eye contour. May we suggest our Peptide CR Eye cream instead as its retinol percentage is from 0.01% to 0.1% and is much milder.
