The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane is a water-free, lightweight serum that contains a 2% concentration of granactive retinoid, a next-generation retinoid active technology that offers a more effective and less irritating alternative to traditional retinoids. It is formulated with plant-derived squalane, which helps to keep the skin hydrated and protected.
Granactive retinoid is a combination of two different retinoids: hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HPR) and a proprietary blend of ascorbyl glucoside, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and retinyl propionate. HPR is a newer type of retinoid that is said to be more effective and less irritating than traditional retinoids. It works by increasing the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The ascorbyl glucoside, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and retinyl propionate blend is also said to be effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These ingredients work by reducing inflammation, increasing cell turnover, and stimulating the production of new skin cells.
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane is a great option for people who are looking for a gentle, effective retinoid that can help to improve the appearance of their skin. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Here are some tips for using The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane:
- Start by using it once a week and gradually increase the frequency as your skin adjusts.
- Apply it after cleansing and before moisturizer.
- Avoid using it in the same routine as other acids, such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid.
- Wear sunscreen during the day to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
If you experience any irritation, discontinue use and consult with a dermatologist.
The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane is a great addition to any skincare routine. It is a gentle, effective serum that can help to improve the appearance of your skin.
How To Use:
Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure. Store in a cool, dry place.
Caution: Retinoids can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Sun protection is particularly important when using retinoids. Acne-prone skin may experience a temporary increase in acne during the first few weeks of using any form of retinoid including those used in this formulation.
Note: When pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended to avoid any skincare products containing retinoids such as formulations with Granactive Retinoid or Retinol.
