Hi.  I'm looking for a retinol gel or serum that has a very high percentage of retinol.   What do you recommend?   Thanks!

i havent used it but i believe PTR is the highest retinol, at 1.5, i think it is a serum

it is here on the Q or Ebay

 

Green cream is somewhat like a gel as it is in an aloe vera base i believe and their's is slightly under 1%

I agree with OCGurl. THe PTR is the highest percentage retinol available OTC.

There are a few other ones that are 1.0% (Skinceuticals 1.0, Topix Replenix 10X, Dermadoctor - Poetry in Lotion).

Yes to PTR.  Have been using the PM Fusion for a couple of months now - love that product.  Previously I used the SKinceuticals 1.0 which was more of a cream and you had to wait 30 minutes after applying to add another product.  I did get results with the SKinceuticals though.

 i liked the Skinsceuticals, I used it before Retin A,  very emollient base

it comes in .50 and 1.0 levels

The PTR is always available on ebay for $45 with free shipping.

PTR wins hands' down.  I love this retinol.  I use it on my neck as I got welts when I tried Retin A on my neck.  It truly does work, it is soothing, and it doesn't irritate.  I am noticing a super smooth neck lately.

 

I like a lot of his line though.  He makes great products with high %'s of actives.

PTR is the highest percentage at 1.5%. Skinceuticals makes a 1% serum that is very nice too.
