Vitamin C + Retinol

24 reviews

Did you know that 95% of dermatologists recommend simplifying your skincare routine to just Retinol and Vitamin C? Plant Mother’s Power Couple will feed, moisturize, and rejuvenate your skin.

Both serums are 100% vegan and plant-based, made with the highest quality local ingredients. While Vitamin A regenerates and stimulates new cell growth, Vitamin C protects and fights skin’s premature aging.

Retinol and Vitamin C are like a little black dress of skincare. They are powerful and necessary essentials. If you need to cut your skincare routine to the bare bones, these are the two products you should never go without. Therefore both Vitamin C and Retinol are an irreplaceable staple in anti-aging skincare routine. 

Regardless of your age, PLANT MOTHER’s serum set should be your clean beauty powerhouse. Best to use Vitamin C in the morning and Retinol over night. Doing this, your skin will be healthy, bright, rejuvenated, and well-nourished.


These two work by stimulating collagen production, skin rejuvenation, and increasing skin brightness. While Vitamin A regenerates and stimulates new cell growth, Vitamin C protects from free radical damage and fights premature aging of the skin. So not only do you get a better texture and healthy rejuvenated facial tissue, you also get bright and radiant-looking skin.

Our Vitamin C and Retinol serums are like “CPR for the skin.” That’s because your skin cells get regenerated and revived. Moreover this serum set prevents premature cell death and increases the skin cell turnover.

PLANT MOTHER’s Vitamin C is a unique product on the market due to its formulation and ingredients. It is the only serum made with over 20 organic ingredients in a formulation that includes an oil-based botanical Vitamin C. 

One of the important ingredients is organic Kakadu Plum that has 55 times more Vitamin C than oranges. There’s also Goji Berries, Cloud Berries, and Guava. Vitamin C is combined with Vitamin E from Prickly Pear, quercetin from Maracuja (we use the most medicinally active variety), Ferulic acid from rice bran, and carotenoids from Seabuckthorn, Rosehip, and Hibiscus.


PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol is the only 100% organic vegan Retinol on the market with over 20 nutritious ingredients and 200+ actives. As a result it boosts collagen and speeds new cell growth. 

This serum is packed with organic Bakuchiol that has twice the anti-oxidative potential as that of vitamin E. It is most effective when combined with carotenoids and flavonoids as it is in our Retinol formulation. Thanks to the right combination of vitamin A, C, E and the omegas, PLANT MOTHER’s Retinol serum restores an ideal pH of 5.5. That’s why it helps quick absorption and delivery of skin nutrients.

These serums require a different pH to penetrate the skin. Therefore you shouldn’t mix them or apply them at the same time. You can apply Vitamin C in the morning (followed with sunscreen) and Retinol in the evening. Or you can use them on alternate nights.

Apply each product on a clean skin. Place only 3-5 drops on your hands and then pat it on your face, neck, and decolletage. Remember – results won’t happen overnight. It will take 6-8 weeks of daily use before you start to see improvements. That’s why we recommend you stay consistent with your serum usage.

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 utilizes locally grown, organic ingredients. These ingredients offer superior nutritional richness and freshness compared to competitors 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. That’s a little over $1 per day.

    I am loving this serum set. I can already tell a difference in my skin just after using it for a short time… it looks dewy, bright, and well moisturized. When I use prescription retinol I typically struggle with dry patches on my face but since using these serums I have not had any issues with dryness! My skin has never looked better. These serums are expensive but their quality justifies the price. 🙂

  3. PMarie80

    ❤️ ❤️ I’m now on my third refill of these two incredible products. I keep returning to these serums because I have incredibly dry skin and they leave my skin super moisturized but without any breakouts. Beautiful texture. Expensive but worth it. My skin looks softer, healthier, and is more glowing!

  4. Lauren H.

    My skin is drinking this up & glowing like crazy lol! Love it

  5. Sandy

    While the set might be on the expensive side, it’s absolutely worth every penny! Great serums, I’ll definitely be buying them again!

  6. D.M. Williams, Boston

    As a woman in my sixties with dry aging skin, I’ve tried countless skincare products over the years, but I must say that the vegan retinol and vitamin C serum set is truly exceptional. Yes, it’s expensive, but in my opinion, it’s well worth the investment.

    Both serums are made with certified organic and plant-based ingredients, which is important to me because I want to know that what I’m putting on my skin is not only effective but also healthy and safe!

    What really makes this serum set stand out, though, is its effectiveness. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and I’ve already noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. It feels smoother, softer, and my fine lines are definitely less noticeable.

    I also appreciate that this serum set is gentle enough for my sensitive skin. It doesn’t cause any irritation or redness, which can be a problem with most retinol products!!

    I highly recommend this vegan retinol and vitamin C serum set to anyone looking for a high-quality, effective skincare product. It may be expensive, but the results speak for themselves, and the fact that it’s made with organic and plant-based ingredients just adds to its appeal.

    Such a lovely set. Enjoy using these serums. Wish they came in travel sizes.

  8. Mina J. Patel

    These products leave me looking fresh and radiant and I’m 44. Improved my texture and provided great moisture. No more dry skin! I also love their mild scent and texture. They have been incredibly effective in tackling my dry skin, leaving it beautifully moisturized and healthy. But here’s the thing: it’s not just on the surface. These serums are like a healthy meal for your skin, serving up all the nutrients, vitamins, and omegas it needs from the inside out.

  9. tori (dry skin)

    My skin has never looked better. My facialist keeps telling me how great my skin looks and I have only been using for less than 1 month. The duo has changed my skincare routine for the best. I used to have so many steps and products, and I was looking to make it simpler, shorter and more efficient. This is it for me. It’s pricey but my skin is glowing

  10. GISELLE M.

    my new favorite products

  11. Diana

    my skin looks great 🙂 i’ve tried other products (i’m 38 so i’ve had years of testing different stuff) but my skin is so sensitive that everything seemed to make my skin worse.

    I’ve been using PM with no problems for months now. that’s why i stick with them despite how expensive they are.

  12. Claire J.

  13. Victoria Jenkins

    Love both serums. Thank you

  14. MistyS

    Navigating skincare in my 50s can be a challenge, but Plant Mother’s serums have been a delightful discovery. These serums have made a real difference. This duo brings simplicity and effectiveness together. If you’re in your 50s and searching for skincare that understands your needs, Plant Mother is a wonderful find. My skin is loving it! The Vitamin A serum has been my secret weapon for skin rejuvenation. It’s like a reset button for my skin, improving texture and adding a youthful glow. And in my age, I truly appreciate the protective power of the Vitamin C serum against premature aging.

  15. ALLY

    I am thrilled with this serum set!

    These serums are 100% vegan and plant-based, and I really love clean, eco-friendly beauty. But let’s talk results – the Vitamin A serum has my skin feeling like it just had a rejuvenating spa day! It’s regenerating my complexion.

    And the Vitamin C serum? Well, it’s become my daily shield against aging. I love knowing my skin is protected while looking its absolute best.

    Overall, this dynamic duo is an absolute game-changer, and I can’t recommend it enough. If you want your skin to feel moisturized and rejuvenated, look no further. Plant Mother is the real deal!

  16. Karen

    great stuff!

  17. Bizzimom

    Best day and night skin set! I really love the way these products are working on my face. I have sensitive skin and after 2 weeks of continuous use I already noticed amazing changes on my skin. I only wish I had taken a “before” photo of my skin.I am SOLD, not just on Plant Mother, but the entire routine ❤️❤️❤️I really can’t recommend these products enough, together in this set and individually. Worth every penny! My skin is softer, more radiant and clearer. I love the ingredients are organic and vegan and packaging is zero waste and reusable.

  18. Melissa

    I am over the moon about Plant Mother’s line! Such quality. I’m dying to know what’s next from the company!

  19. k.m.

    nice 🙂

  20. Barbara C.T.

    Great products! I decided to give these serums a try and have been so impressed by the results. I have been using it for 2 months and my skin is beautiful. Loving them so much… highly recommend.

  21. Maria

    LOVE this serum set. Both serums are so amazing and make my skin perfectly soft, smooth and radiant. 10/10

  22. happy customer

    My skin has a beautiful lit from within quality since starting this product. I swear these are the best absorbing facial oils on the market. I’ve even been able to drop the daytime moisturizer because I don’t need it. Both Vitamin C and retinol serum provide the perfect balanced moisture for my face. I’ve experienced no breakouts, no greasy feeling, zero irritation. The price is steep but I will absolutely repurchase.

  23. Yoli 52

    this PLANT MOTHER set is a dream. I have been using the set for about 10 days now and I’m obsessed! Each one of them alone works wonders, both put together I swear my skin was instantly radiant and glowing!

  24. Vivianss

    This is the most magical facial treatment I’ve ever used!!!! Vitamin C in the morning and Retinol serum in the evening. Even my adult acne got better. Wow, just wow!
