Double your skin lightening power with our serum and topical supplement to get the best results in the shortest time.
Sure you can get other anti-aging face serums with retinol, but here are a few key ingredients that make Pacific Night Serum with Retinol really stand out.
Retinol, a derivative of the nutritious Vitamin A, is one of the few proven anti-aging ingredients to effectively stimulate collagen and in turn improve your skin’s elasticity and even out skin tone. But until now its cousin Retin-A has been the darling of dermatologists, even with all of the irritating and shiny side effects. Today, an innovative chitin-microencapsulation process changes all that—allowing the milder retinol to maintain its full potency over time so it can do all of the good stuff for your skin without the irritation and peeling.
Our proprietary micronization process increases the solubility and absorption of these powerful bioactives, enhancing their bioavailability and reparative performance. Noni is a Pacific Rim fruit that’s one of the most powerful antioxidants on record and known for its wound-healing properties. SOD is an enzyme that neutralizes the most damaging of the free radicals, the super oxide anion. Resveratrol is an extremely powerful antioxidant with extraordinary anti-aging properties. It preserves the skin’s youthfulness by protecting stem cell niches and mitochondrial DNA and reduces the signs of aging by redensifying the extra- cellular matrix. And, it prevents future damage, including hyperpigmentation, by changing the epidermal architecture.

"I highly recommend these products, they are made from high quality ingredients and aren't cheap but they do what Marie says they'll do. My skin is fair and sensitive plus I live in the Mojave Desert so if MVO wasn't as advertised I would have known quickly. So very happy I followed the link that day in the Chronicle. If you decide to use MVO do your self a favor and take pictures of your face before you start using them, then again in three months..." -- Jackie Pelfrey
"After a head injury, my lower jaw began to move forward resulting in stretch marks on my face and deep lines around my mouth. While I obviously I have far more serious symptoms to heal from, looking at my skin in the mirror over the years has been heartbreaking. I recently learned about MVO products and while it was a splurge I decided to try the Pacific Night Serum with Retinol mixed in with the Vitamin C, as well as the Exfoliating Cleanser. I’ve been using the products just over two weeks. The stretch marks are about 40% better! And a few days ago the deep lines around my mouth started to soften! I’m really encouraged and so, so grateful these gorgeous, safe, organic products exist. On top of which, the service I received was incredible. Such a kind and knowledge staff. Yay! I’m looking forward to more healing across the board and am excited to have MVO as part of my team." -- Jane S.

"I love this line! Currently I'm using their their anti aging oil, night serum with retinol and I have seen my sun spots start to fade and I like their tinted sunscreen." -- Katherine Quinlan via Facebook
"I did a test and started using the Night Retinol Serum since October and I definitely have seen my sun spots fade. I love this serum!!!! And the Anti Aging oil is another favorite and its fragrance is such a great am booster." -- Joli. via Faceook
"In the nearly 2 weeks that I have been using the MV Pacific line, I have seen marked improvement in my skin. Amazingly, I have only had 1 rosacea flare-up in these entire 12 days (!), and it was very minor. This is truly huge because I previously had 1 to 2 significant flare-ups every single day for the past year, and my skin was in a constant "reactive" state. I am beyond surprised that I would see such a huge difference so fast (and also that anything could help my skin) especially given how many different skin lines I've tried in the past 13 months since developing rosacea. My skin truly appears to be healing. Even the persistent redness that is always there (regardless of whether I am having a flare-up) is diminishing. Marie was actually in the store when I was there 12 days ago and she suggested that I switch from the micronized zinc sunscreen I had been using for a couple of years to her non-nano formula instead, which I did. I think that this in particular has made a huge difference since it calmed my skin from the first time I tried it. She also suggested a daily Turmeric & Vitamin C supplement, which I have been taking. Anyway, I am beyond thrilled and plan to continue using the Pacific line. My skin hasn't looked this good in over a year!" -- Rebecca J.

"I’ll put in my two cents and say I recently tried MVO’s Pacific line (based on a recommendation from this blog) and my skin is completely transformed. I’ve tried every clean product on the market, and I can easily say these are the most effective products out there, for me at least. And I don’t work for the company! I’m just a product junkie. So while $375 may seem like a lot, I would go for it based on my experience with MVO. I completely trust them based on my experience so far." -- Alison
"I recently ordered the balance of the Pacific products for my face. Amanda helped in providing me an optimum cleaning routine. I'm alternating the Night Serum w/ Retinol with the Topical Marine Treatment. I'm almost 2 weeks into using the Pacific line and I'm loving it! I'll be able to provide better feedback after a months use but for now I can say my skin has never felt or looked better. Thank you to Marie & her entire team for giving me a healthy, natural choice. I'm a customer for life!" -- Deb

Try as you might to defy it, there are a few inevitable things that will happen to your skin as you age.
The result: dry, sagging skin that makes wrinkles and fine lines more visible. While you can’t stop the tick tock of aging, you can actually turn back the skin’s clock.
With so many serums to choose from, how do you know which ones will give you the best results? At Marie Veronique Organics, we believe it all comes down to intelligent ingredients. Most importantly, retinol, Noni/SOD/Resveratrol Microemulsion and Pacific Marine Bioactive Peptides. Together, these ingredients increase collagen production, prevent moisture loss and stimulate new cell formation, effectively and naturally bringing your skin back to life.
One important note about retinol: At MVO, we know that too much of a good thing can overwhelm the system. The reason we use a 1% concentration is that the body converts retinol as needed—1% is simply more than you’ll ever use. In our opinion, 2% is mere grandstanding.
Unfortunately, while other products may tout many of these natural ingredients, the benefits are often overwhelmed by synthetics. The most common culprits are propylene glycol to add slip and slide, parabens to give it a long shelf life and synthetic fragrances to make it smell less like a product that had its origins in the sea. In the long run, we believe your skin benefits far more from natural ingredients with nutritive value than from artificial skin conditioning agents.
Our Philosophy"Intelligent Ingredients" is more than just a tagline. It’s the overriding principle that guides every formulation at Marie Veronique Organics. That’s because science tells us that what goes on your skin ultimately penetrates your skin and goes into your body. The right ingredients can do a world of good and the wrong ones quite the opposite. Before an ingredient gets added to a product we make sure it does the right thing, efficiently and without causing harm to you or the planet.
Using our deep scientific understanding of the aging process, we turn to nature for potent ingredients that will counter—and even reverse—the effects of aging skin. Our ingredients are selected to penetrate deep within the skin, working exactly where the aging action happens, rather than simply staying on the surface. And above all else, we stand by our philosophy that toxic ingredients, harmful chemicals, artificial agents and preservatives are not the solution for making your skin look and feel younger.
It’s probably no surprise that our entire company is dedicated to sustainability. Wherever possible we use natural, organic and fair trade ingredients, packaged in 100% recyclable materials. And we source them as close to our Mill Valley headquarters as possible to keep our footprint super small.
Shake well before use and keep in a cool place. Apply thin layer to face, neck and chest after using cleanser, mist and face oil. If irritation develops, discontinue use and consult physician.
