Dr Vanita Rattan Antioxidant Power Serum 30ml (with 0.1% Retinaldehyde and 0.1% Retinol) is a cocktail of 6 Anti oxidants in the therapeutic range for daily use, to mop up free radicals, protect collagen and prevent premature aging, in skin of colour.
Includes all 3 Vitamin As for the first time (Retinaldehyde, Retinol, Retinyl Palmitate) to maximise anti-ageing benefits.
STEP 5 of 6 (PM Routine).
Suitable for use around the eye area, ensuring the product does not enter the eye. Wash out immediately if it does.
It is non-comedogenic and 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation: No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Warning: not to be used if pregnant, nor in conjunction with any professional treatments.
In skin of colour, we want to minimise irritation to prevent hyperpigmentation. This is why for daily use we prefer skin-identical pH formulas, and why we chose Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), fat soluble Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Co enzyme Q10.
It is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Also, quite often, anti-oxidants are not packaged or formulated correctly for skin of colour - they are unstable and need to be in an airless, opaque pump in optimal combination to stabilise them.
For most skin types (normal/dry/combination) & persons over 16 years and over.
Persons with oily skin can also use the range but will be more suited to the 'Dr Vanita Rattan Trio Blemish Range' for oily/acne prone skin.
Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products or overly sensitive or damaged skin.

Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean skin, not if cracked/damaged. In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required.

1. How long would Daily Range products last for?
This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 4-6 weeks approx.
2. Is the Daily Range suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?
Yes it is suitable with the exception of the 'Antioxidant Serum'. If unsure or your circumstances vary, please check with your doctor.
3. Is the Daily Range suitable for all skin types?
Yes it is suitable for all skin types, however persons with very sensitive skin / rosacea / active skin conditions etc. should AVOID the 'Exfoliate to Glow' chemical exfoliator.
4. Can you use the Daily Range with Dr. V Facial Pigmentation kit / other professional treatments?
All the products can be used, but NOT the 'Exfoliate to Glow' at the same time. In general, exfoliating washes/scrubs should not be used with anti-pigmentation treatments.
You can take 1 day off the Facial Pigmentation kit in the week to exfoliate if need be, in which case 'Exfoliate to Glow' can be used.
It is not necessary to use the Antioxidant Power Serum with the Facial Pigmentation Kit, but you can do if you wish (and your skin can tolerate both without any irritation).
5. Should I still use Niacinamide, Ceramides, Retinol, Vitamin A/C/E serums from other skincare lines in conjunction with the Dr V Daily Range?
You don't need to use any of the active ingredients above from other products as they are already well represented in the Daily Range.
However, you can add an extra Retinol product into your skincare routine if you wish to (but not essential or recommended as such), and layer this BEFORE the AO Serum.
6. Do I still need to use Dr V YouTube Channel recommended products such as Garnier Micellar Water, Simple Moisturising Face Wash, DHC Cleansing Oil?
No, these products have effective counterparts in the Dr V Daily Range. For instance the Dr V Micellar Gel Wash effectively replaces both Micellar Water and a normal Face Wash.
7. Can I still use Tretinoin with the Dr V Antioxidant Power Serum?
It is acceptable to use Tretinoin with the Antioxidant Serum, but not with the Dr. V Exfoliate to Glow, nor with Dr. V Facial Pigmentation Kit.
However, it is not permissable to use Isotretinoin/Roaccutane with the Serum or any Dr. V product (6 months gap required).
8. I have never used Vitamin A before, do I need to do anything special to start off with?
The Antioxidant Power Serum contains the least irritating form of Vitamin A and at a low %, hence it can be used as normal per the application guidelines.
However, as with all treatment products, we advise patch testing first, to ensure there are no skin reactions before proceeding with application to the more prominent areas.
9. Why is there Citric acid in the Power Serum, I thought Dr V does not like it ?
Citric acid is used in low % as pH buffer, not at high % as an exfoliator (not recommended).
10. Can these products be used after microneedling procedures?
Yes, after any soreness from the microneedling has subsided, all Daily Range products can be used except for the 'Exfoliate to Glow' product.
11. How long does it take to see results, as part of the full daily range?
You may start to notice beneficial effects in as little as 2-4 weeks, however we advise 12 weeks to see the full potential.
" My aim with this product was to create the world’s best vitamin A serum for skin of colour. This required 3 forms of vitamin A inc. 0.1% retinaldehyde, 0.1% retinol and 0.2% retinyl palmitate. To stabilise the vitamin A I used fat soluble vitamin C, vitamin E and coenzyme Q10, in an airless pump. Topping up with Cera Pep allows the vitamin A to work even more effectively. It’s my favourite product in the Daily Range, and with the highest number of 5* REVIEWS of them all, customers surely agree.
--- Love, Dr. V "
I have been using the Antioxidant Power Serum for a few weeks now, and I am pleased with the results so far. I was initially hesitant to try it because I have sensitive skin, but it hasn't caused any irritation. Two pumps of the serum are enough to cover my entire face. Although I haven't noticed any significant radiance yet, my skin appears smoother. I must say that I am a big fan of Dr. V's products. I enjoy watching her YouTube videos and reading her book, Skin Revolution. I am planning to place another order soon, and I will continue using the serum for about six months to a year to see if there are any significant results.
Thank you, Dr. V - Please keep doing what you do so very Well!!
Absolutely in love this fantastic product. On my second bottle now. Its’ slightly oily texture is really good for my mature skin.
Still in the early stages of using the full set of these products. Had a couple compliments about my skin. Continuous use and time will tell
I've been using the power serum with moisturizer for the last 2 years. I have not experienced fantastic outcome. Dr V products made my skin not itch anymore and i prefer products without strong odour. So i'm sticking to Dr V products for now.
The best retinol product I have ever used. I’ve been religiously using this the last 6 months and I’ve seen so much improvement in the texture and tone of my skin. Thank you Dr V, love you for coming up with this amazing brand for skin of Color.
My skin looks and feels better since using this cream. Love it!
I like the serum very much. It goes on nice and smooth. I would like to have it in a larger bottle it runs out fast.
I really like the skin products and hope Dr V. can keep up her great quality.
