I received my first jar of Truth Treatment Systems’ Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel over a year ago and since then, it has become an absolute staple in my nightly skincare routine.
I have used many prescription-strength and OTC retinols over the last decade. Truth Treatment Systems’ Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel is the best retinol product I have found. It has done wonders for my skin.
I was so thrilled to find a prescription-grade retinol product for which I did not require a prescription. The Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel is highly effective, yet gentle and safe. Formulated with retinol, it is an intensive anti-ageing and anti-blemish skin refiner that corrects damage.
Truth Treatments Systems’ Retinol products are formulated with the equivalent potency of prescription-strength retinoic acid, but without any of its unwanted side effects:
- Prescription-strength retinol without a prescription;
- Truth Treatments’ Retinol is of equal potency to prescription Retin-A with .05% retinoic acid;
- The company’s products do not include the harsh excipients and preservatives found in Retin-A;
- Truth Treatments’ Retinol contains Vitamin C and Transdermal Delivery Matrix for added healing and soothing benefits.
This highly concentrated 5% Retinol Gel is a potent blend with a high dose of healing Vitamin C and exfoliating Vitamin A to remove dead and dulling skin cells. It also fades discolouration, smooths lines and refines scars. With continued use, skin will look tighter, clearer and brighter, breakouts will dissipate and blackheads will dissolve.
Key features and benefits of the Regeneration 5% Retinol Gel
- Potency is equivalent to prescription-strength .05% retinoid acid;
- It resurfaces skin for smoother texture and more even tone;
- It supports cell turnover, reducing clogged pores and acne;
- It stimulates collagen and elastin production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles;
- It is formulated with fat-soluble Vitamin C to reduce irritation and support healing.
Pharmacist-formulated with highest concentrations for maximum potency, the super-charged gel contains a 5% concentration of retinol, a Vitamin A derivative. Truth Treatment Systems’ 5% Retinol Gel is the only OTC retinol product formulated to be equally as potent to the standard concentration of prescription retinoic acid that one can get without a doctor’s prescription. And what is even better is that it also contains an extraordinarily high concentration of Vitamin C, which is the skin’s second most important topical nutrient.
The full ingredient list includes: Tetrahexydecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), C12-14 Alkyl Benzoate, Medium Chain Triglycerides, Retinol (Vitamin A), Glyceryl Esters and Dextrin Palmitate.
The Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel is recommended for all skin types, especially thicker, stronger skin or skin that has been acclimated to retinol use, and for those concerned with ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, discolouration and blemished skin. It works as a great spot treatment to dissolve and remove stubborn dark spots or as a dramatic all-over facial treatment used once or twice weekly to loosen dead and dull skin cells.
Completely unique in texture and application, a little Retinol Gel goes a very long way. It should be used sparingly – only a pea-sized amount – on damp skin once or twice a week to achieve dramatic visible improvements. It is important that the skin is damp. For maximum penetration, massage and drive product into skin using upward circular motions until completely absorbed.
The balm-like gel is thick, emollient and satiny, which makes it very easy to apply. It is not irritating like tretinoin and some other retinol products, although some users may experience some dryness and flaking. If added hydration is necessary, use Omega 6 Healing Cream to further aid in moisturising, restoring and repairing skin.
Truth Treatments’ Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel is the best retinol product I have ever used. I have used a variety of Retin-A products in the past, and none of them gave the results that I get from the Truth Treatments’ Retinol product. The difference in skin will be clear after just a few weeks’ usage.
I use this gel twice a week in the evening, and I wake up with moisturised and soft skin. It leaves my skin glowing and radiant, and I see a continuous improvement in texture, firmness and a complete overall healthy look. As a huge proponent of using retinol in my skincare regimen, I’m totally in love with Truth Treatment Systems’ Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel.
Truth Treatment Systems was created by Benjamin Knight Fuchs, R. Ph., a registered compounding pharmacist, skincare chemist and nutritionist, who has for the past 32 years been formulating pharmacy-potent skin health products for aestheticians, dermatologists, plastic surgeons and his own savvy customers.
He believes that with the right ingredients, the skin can repair itself and that caring for the skin is about the health of the skin. The pharmacist-formulated skin products are designed to provide topical nourishment for the skin that meets the strictest performance standards.
Truth Treatment Systems’ products contain 100% active and functional ingredients that reverse skin damage and create visible change by healing the skin. Many other skincare brands use only about 5-10% active ingredients and 90-95% fillers, which do not provide skin benefits or results.
Exclusively made with pure nutritional ingredients – no fillers, emulsifiers, thickeners, oils, preservatives, fragrance, silicone, waxes, water or fragrances – Truth Treatment Systems’ products are highly concentrated so it is possible to use less product to achieve better results.
The efficiency level of skin care products not only depends on the individual active ingredients, but also on the delivery system. Exemplifying Truth Treatment Systems’ transformative approach to ingredient delivery for better efficacy and performance, their products utilise an innovative, proprietary Transdermal Delivery Matrix (TDM) system. This is a technology-driven delivery system that allows the skin to absorb and use the active, concentrated ingredients at their optimum. On first application, improved circulation and immediate hydration will be seen. Through continued use, results will just get better: skin becomes smoother, whilst texture and tone will be visibly improved.
All Truth Treatment Systems’ products have one thing in common – they work. Everything I have tried from this brand has been unbelievably good, and the Regenerating 5% Retinol Gel is no exception.
For seriously gorgeous results, this has to be the most essential retinol product in the category of pharmaceutical-grade, anti-ageing treatment.
