The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a potent anti-aging treatment to combat lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and visible pores.
Why you need it:
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a water-free solution that contains a 5% concentration of an advanced Retinoid active complex called Granactive Retinoid that has been shown to offer better results against multiple signs of ageing than Retinol without any of the irritation and drawbacks common with Retinol. Granactive Retinoid is a solubilized system of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate which offers a multi-fold better effect against signs of ageing than nearly all other forms of non-prescription Retinoid.
If you have never used Retinol or active Retinoids before, we recommend using The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane initially so skin can build tolerance.
Do not use products containing Retinol or Retinoids when pregnant or breastfeeding.
