The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane is a next-generation retinoid which targets multiple signs of aging, minimising the appearance of lines, wrinkles, pigmenation and enlarged pores.
Why you need it:
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane is a water-free solution to tackle multiple signs of aging. Retinoids (various forms of Vitamin A) are skin cell communicators that encourage skin cell turnover and regeneration. Fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and visible pores all appear considerably reduced with continued use.
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane contains a 2% concentration of an advanced Retinoid active complex called Granactive Retinoid, an active technology from Grant Industries that is a solubilized system of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate. This Retinoid has been shown to offer better results against multiple signs of ageing than Retinol without any of the irritation and drawbacks common with Retinol. It offers a multi-fold better effect against signs of ageing than Retinol, Retinyl Palmitate and nearly all other forms of non-prescription Retinoid.
Important: Not suitable for use when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Caution: Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids. This product must not be used in conjunction with other retinoids including retinol or retinoic acid.
