Plant Mother’s Retinol is a powerful product for sensitive skin. This 100% vegan vitamin A does the work without any redness, skin irritation, or what’s often called “retinol uglies.”

Many women suffer from retinol irritations (redness, peeling, extreme dryness) when they start using retinol. That’s why PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol solves this problem. It’s formulated without any harsh irritating chemicals and it doesn’t cause dryness or peeling. Therefore, it is recommended for even the most sensitive skin.



retinol serum BENEFITS: Building Collagen AND boosting CELL REGENERATION

  • This Retinol serum has extremely high amount of antioxidants that promote rebuilding of healthy skin cells and collagen. The amount of antioxidants in our serum is 10-30 times higher than in goji berries, currents, and grapes.
  • PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol is an oil-based serum that nourishes, regenerates, and brightens the skin. Rich nutritious profile of our Retinol comes from antioxidants, carotenoids, vitamins A, C, E, and a full spectrum of essential fatty acids. These are all necessary for skin’s health and nutrition.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS: nourishing, REJUVENATING, and brightening

  • Due to a high level of beta carotene and carotenoids from Rosehips, Carrot Seeds, Seabuckthorn, PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol brightens and nourishes the skin. Moreover, it restores skin’s ideal ph level of 5.5. This is because of vitamins A, C, E and flavonoids. They are vital in maintaining the right acid levels of the skin.
  • Additionally, PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol has organic Bakuchiol, a sacred plant of traditional Chinese medicine. This plant is often called “botanical face lift” due to its strong anti-aging properties. Bakuchiol has nearly twice the anti-oxidative potential as that of vitamin E. Above all, it is most effective when combined with carotenoids and flavonoids as it is in PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol serum.

Why Plant-based Retinol?

Most Retinols are very aggressive to the skin causing dryness, redness, irritation, or peeling. PLANT MOTHER’s Vegan Retinol Serum is a healthy and non-irritating alternative to conventional retinol. More importantly, it doesn’t cause skin irritation, redness, or sun sensitivity.

This 100% Organic Plant-Based Retinol is effective yet good for sensitive skin that doesn’t tolerate harshness of other Retinols.

retinol serum Application AND USE

Add 3-5 drops of Retinol between your hands and gently press all over your face, neck, and decollate. You should use it after cleansing your face or right after the shower. Use on damp skin to lock in hydration and allow nutrients to sink deep into the skin. Also, if you combine it with other products, always start with the PLANT MOTHER Retinol as a first step.

You can use the serum during the night or day. If you use it during the day always wear with sunscreen. Best if finished within 6-12 months from opening and stored in a dark and dry place. The bottle should last about 4 months if used regularly. Pairs well with PLANT MOTHER’s Vegan Vitamin C Serum – use it in the morning and retinol during the night.

Customer Questions & Answers

Most of our customers don’t use a moisturizer because our serums are as nourishing as they are moisturizing. So from the nutritional standpoint, you don’t need any other products because our serums are moisturizing and have a high amount of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants to fulfill your skin’s nutritional needs.

If you want to use any additional products, make sure you use our serum first (as a first step), on a clean skin, and wait until your skin soaks it before applying any other product or makeup.

Some people like to apply our serums on damp skin for a very nice moistened feel.

Our Vitamin C serum is perfect for am – apply it in the morning right after washing your face (on slightly damp or dry skin).

Use our Retinol serum during the night. Again, clean your skin and apply the serum on a slightly damp or dry face. 

You can use only a few drops each time, put them on your hands and gently press all over your face. Some people like to put 5-6 drops, some 2-3 – it is a personal preference, you can test and see how much you like to apply. 

Consider this analogy: You can opt for a McDonald’s meal or indulge in a dining experience at a Michelin-starred restaurant. There’s a notable price disparity between the two, which mirrors a stark contrast in quality and the health benefits of the food. The same principle applies to our products.

Our serums are 100% made in the USA, using locally sourced ingredients. Unlike some other brands that rely on cost-effective components imported mainly from overseas, particularly China, Plant Mother exclusively uses locally grown, organic ingredients. These ingredients not only offer superior nutritional richness and freshness compared to conventional options but also come at a higher cost.

Furthermore, among all our ingredients, Plant Mother selects the most premium and rare botanicals, virgin and unrefined, renowned for their exceptional anti-aging potency—think Kakadu plum, prickly pear, and more. These ingredients are incredibly beneficial for your skin but come at a price point significantly higher than synthetic fillers, which lack nutritional value and are often laden with skin allergens and irritants.

Finally, our commitment to eco-friendliness extends to our packaging, which is entirely free of plastic and designed to produce zero waste. This eco-conscious approach, while better for the planet, does come at a higher cost. It’s important to note that the beauty industry is a major contributor to plastic waste, churning out over 120 billion units of plastic packaging annually.

We do not have a parent company, we’re a small independent brand, based in Miami, FL. We NEVER test on animals and our products are 100% plant-based and vegan. We don’t sell in China and we don’t use any ingredients from China – everything is locally sourced and manufactured in Miami. 

On average, it will last around 4 months if you use it every day.

The Retinol serum is great for dry, mature, and sensitive skin. It is made without any known allergens – no synthetics, artificial fragrances, chemicals, GMOs, or even nut oils. Many customers with eczema or rosacea have reported that their flares were gone after using this serum. 

Our ingredients and products are sourced locally. We exclusively utilize locally grown, organic ingredients from South Florida. Some of these ingredients are even cultivated on our small organic farm in Miami. Additionally, our retinol serum, along with all our other products, is handcrafted by us in small batches. We refrain from using overseas ingredients or manufacturing suppliers, ensuring freshness and maintaining the highest quality control standards for our serums.

    The best retinol ever 🙂

  2. Angela C.

    Love this serum! After countless trials with various serums in search of the perfect moisturizing solution, I stumbled upon plant mother’s retinol—and it’s a game-changer. Luxurious and exactly what I’ve been longing for, it’s truly a gem. A definite 5-star find that’s worth raving about—I rarely leave reviews, but this one is a must-share!

  3. Ciara

    I have been using the retinol oil for a few weeks now and so far so good! I was definitely wary at first due to the price and I never heard of this company before, but my acne scars are already showing major improvement! The fine lines around my mouth and eyes have also been smoothed down (I’m 32) I’m excited to see how my face will look after a few months of use.

  4. Wendy Chapman

    The holy grail! I’ve tried so many retinols over the years, but skin inevitably ends up raw, red, and irritated. At 60, I have pretty good skin, but this retinol has taken me to a level above the next level (lol), without a hint of irritation. My skin is glowy and plump and very, very happy. I love getting these results, while still being kind to my body by using a clean product. I’m so delighted with Plant Mother, I’m pulling the trigger on buying the Vitamin C serum today.

  5. retinol customer

    I’m thrilled with the results I’ve seen from this retinol serum! I started using it every night, as recommended. The serum is rich yet gentle and non-irritating, making it perfect for my sensitive skin. My skin looks smoother and brighter, and I love that it’s free of harsh chemicals. The serum absorbs nicely and doesn’t leave any residue 🙂

  6. Maria

    Everyone’s skin is unique, so what works for me might not necessarily work for someone else. As I approach my 29th birthday in April, I’ve been dealing with very dry, sensitive skin. Recently, I made the decision to stop taking birth control, and unfortunately, I experienced a severe cystic acne breakout reminiscent of my teenage years. I found myself relying heavily on salicylic acid products, which left my face dry, flaky, and sensitive to the touch—even my gentle moisturizer caused discomfort. Despite my efforts, my dryness showed no signs of improvement. That’s when I decided to try Plant Mother’s retinol serum. Upon application, I was pleasantly surprised by its oily texture, which made it easy to spread across my skin. Despite my initial apprehension, I didn’t experience any burning sensation. To my amazement, I noticed a significant improvement in my dryness by the following morning. Not only did my skin feel amazing, but the flakiness and burning sensation also subsided. While I highly recommend this product, it’s essential to note that I incorporated it into my skincare routine alongside other products. As a longtime fan of dr Barbara Sturm, I must admit that after experiencing the incredible results from Plant Mother’s retinol serum, I may have found my new go-to skincare brand.

  7. courtney

    ive been using this product as a part of a skin cycling routine for about a year now and cannot live without it. im an esthetician and have recommended it to countless clients that all love it. consistency is important but you will see and feel a difference. my skin loves it. definitely worth trying if you want to work on anti aging

  8. amy babe

    Amazing for night time use, I wear it before bed and I wake up with my skin feeling super moisturized. This will forever be part of my skin routine!

  9. UpstateGirl

    Expensive but amazing!! worth every cent

  10. Megan, sensitive skin, Chicago

    My skin is so sensitive!! I’ve tried so many products – otc and high end. So much doesn’t work or straight up burns. It’s been a full month. So far this retinol feels good, feels like silk and my skin is tolerating it (no burning at all)! 😍 😍 I think I’m on to something!

  11. M.T.

    I recently tried this plant-based retinol serum, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results! As a woman in my mid fifties with extremely dry skin, I have been searching for a product that can address my specific skincare needs, and this serum has exceeded my expectations.

    One of the things I love about this serum is that it is completely plant-based. As someone who cares deeply about the environment and my own health, I appreciate knowing that I am putting only the best, natural ingredients on my skin.

    After just a few uses, I noticed a significant improvement in the appearance of my skin. I no longer wake up with that tight, uncomfortable feeling in my skin that I used to experience. Instead, my skin feels soft and has a healthy, radiant glow.

    Overall, I am impressed with Plant Mother’s retinol serum. It has helped me to achieve the healthy-looking skin that I thought was impossible at my age. If you are a woman with dry skin like me, I would highly recommend giving this serum a try!

  12. Lena

    This is my second time purchasing because I love this retinol serum. I swear it has helped with my dry skin. I use it as a base before applying my makeup and again at night before bed.

  13. Maria

    You don’t need to ease into this or introduce it slowly into your routine. This retinol won’t make you burn or peel because it has no chemicals or synthetics in it! Even with extremely sensitive skin, I was able to start with using this retinol every night and enjoying its benefits since day one. Love it.

  14. Alyssa Carlson

    rich texture and smells amazing. I’m vegan so really appreciate that this retinol is vegan and not tested on animals 🌲🌱🌳👩‍🌾

  15. retinol customer

    very moisturising. improves my skin’s appearance within day of applying it. it makes the skin look very plump and moisturised with one use. i dont use it consistently, but i love it. I just put it on about 30 min before bed and shower as usual in the morning. will definitely be purchasing this product again in the future!!

  16. Amelia G.

    I had quit retinol for a couple years because of the irritation and flakes; none of that here! Not even a little purging. Now just waking up to smooth, happy skin. This is my new go-to night product.

  17. Tasha

    Wonderful serum! I’ve tried it a few nights now and no irritation on my sensitive skin. It has a smoothing and brightening effect on my skin. Only a small amount is needed as it goes a long way.

  18. PK Saltz

    This is the best Retinol serum, I’m on my second bottle 🙂 After the first night using the Retinol serum, my skin felt softer in the morning. Not just a little softer, but significantly softer. Now I’m on my second bottle and I’ve been using it for about eight months, and I truly see a difference. After about a month of using it, friends started commenting on my skin telling me I was glowing 🙂 My face feels brighter and plumper.

  19. Sophia

    Second time ordering this retinol. I use it every night. It not only works, it smells amazing. I have given up the pharmaceutical and drying retinols and use this in place. I highly recommend this product for daily use in place of harsh, drying, pharmaceuticals.

  20. Luna1985

    I got a trial size of this and my skin reacted incredibly well to it, so I bought the full size. My skin is dry, sensitive and very acne prone and I’ve been using this serum every night for almost 2 months now and it has made my skin brighter and SO soft with no new break outs!! The serum does have a very nice scent to it and it absorbs quickly.

  21. ElaineRK

    LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I don’t write reviews often but this serum deserves one. I use one or two pumps of this every night mixed with my moisturizer. A little goes a long way. It gives my skin a nice, dewy glow. This will definitely stay in my routine as one of my staple products!

  22. Dolly

    I have yet to meet a PLANT MOTHER product I don’t love lol :))

  23. Alexandra K

    Plant Mother Retinol Serum has a nice consistency and a nice soft refreshing luxurious scent. ✨It smooth and changed the texture of my skin in the midst of it freaking out due to wearing a mask all the time. I’m 32 and my skin never felt better!

  24. Casey NYC

    This retinol serum is very comfortable on skin. I have repurchased it because it truly works. Makes my skin smooth and evens out the tone. it’s hydrating & you can feel good knowing it’s a more natural skincare product than most.

  25. Katerina13

    PLANT MOTHER products are the best! Especially the vitamin c serum (which I’ve already reviewed) and this organic retinol serum. I’ve tried retinol serums here and there and this one works the best with my sensitive skin. It’s a good retinol serum to start off with. It is a part of my night time routine. No redness or irritation ever 🙂

    The key ingredients in this product are: sebuckthorn seed and pulp, maracuja, rosehip, prickly pear, acai, and hibiscus.

  26. E.O.

    Best purchase; very happy from day one!!

  27. Maibel

    This retinol serum is perfect for new and experienced retinol users. I was having trouble with dullness and skin texture and this brightened and evened it out within 2 weeks. This is an integral part of my nightly skincare routine and pairs well with other oils and serums. I love that this is the only retinol that is completely organic and plant-based. Clean beauty at its best. Full of precious nutrients that feed the skin. Healthy, fresh ingredients makes it worth the extra bucks 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾

  28. Terry Asher

    This retinol serum is amazing hands down! I’m throwing my retinol cream away and this is my go to. I am 65 and I’ve been told I look 45. 🙂 🙂 I will be reordering this serum for sure. Beautiful packaging.It also makes your neck look younger. I use this in the morning and evening and I can see a visible difference after three weeks! The quality is amazing. Has a wonderful oily texture with expensive ingredients such as Kahai, prickly pear, Acai, hibiscus. All 100% organic pure unrefined. Will be buying again!

  29. Maya

    When I say this retinol did EVERYTHING for me… I mean EVERYTHING. It’s my all time favorite. A few drops can go a long way.

  30. Lisa, 48

    Love this retinol, no redness or peeling at all

  31. Dana Vitale

    One word: amazing!!!

  32. Amy Yin

    Great product! I’m vegan so I was really happy to find a 100% vegan and organic retinol. Perfectly moisturizing oily texture, rich in vitamin A and C with nourishing botanicals. A real overnight treat for my dry wintery skin. And the company being environmentally conscious with zero waste policy and compostable packaging is super important to me. Will buy again!!

  33. Judith K.

    Such a good serum! Only takes a couple drops for my whole face. Leaves me feeling so soft and fresh!

  34. Liz Gonzalez

    I absolutely LOVE this product! It has changed the texture of my skin, helped my dryness, and helped reduce lines on my forehead.

  35. Bryanna Doyle

    At 42 years old I promised myself I would start taking care of my skin religiously, especially after noticing the fine lines and wrinkles on my forehead. You’ll see results the first time you use Plant Mother Retinol Serum!! Just apply it, fall asleep, and wake up with flawless skin lol. I like how gentle but also effective this retinol is. My skin loves it and it got so soft and bright and it feels nourished and healthy.

  36. Kassie Bron

It also smells amazing and leaves me feeling super soft and hydrated. Will repurchase.
