Why Retinol - Is It Magic In A Bottle?

Why Retinol - Is It Magic In A Bottle?

Why Retinol is the closest thing to magic in a bottle

Every skincare company wishes they had a miracle wrinkle cure in a bottle. Some even make false claims. You know, "Our product that will turn back the clock 20 years," kind of claims. Sadly, skincare products can't work miracles.  Even a plastic surgeon can only shave off about 10 years.

But, a well formulated skincare product can certainly make improvements!

There is an ingredient proven to improve signs of aging. It's called Retinol. 

Retinol is a form of retinoid, a derivative of vitamin A. It works its magic by minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing texture, and diminishing hyperpigmentation and dark spots.

Here's how it works: As we age, skin cells stop maturing and pile up. Retinols work on a molecular level to normalize cell turnover, basically telling your cells to renew themselves regularly, sweeping away the old cells.

What's the difference between Retin A and Retinol?

Retin-A is a prescription-only tretinoin cream. Tretinoin is another name for retinoic acid. 

Retin-A products are stronger than the average retinol cream. The extra strength is known to assist with blemishes, reduction in wrinkles, boosted skin elasticity—but also major side effects. Due to its strength, Retin-A can cause itching, scaling, burning, peeling, and extreme redness when using the medication. 

Retinol, on the other hand, is known to assist with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dark spots and of course, cell turnover, without the side effects.

Retinol, Retin-A, best skincare for women over 50, wrinkles, old skin, hyperpigmentation, dark age spotsWe took our own Retinol Plus Perfecting Infusion to the next level by formulating it with moisture binders (hyaluronic acid), eliminating the worry of irritation and redness. The addition of moisture binders helps skin stay hydrated and glowing without irritation. While results aren't as quick as Retin-A, averaging about 2-3 months, they're worth the wait!                                      If you've got sensitive skin, retinol is a milder--yet equally effective--alternative to Retin-A.  Remember to use your Retinols at night and use a moisturizer with SPF during the day.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
