The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion
This formulation combines two forms of next-generation retinoid actives:
- A 2% concentration of Granactive Retinoid which is a complex of solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate or HPR. HPR is a highly-advanced form of retinoid, that offers a multi-fold better effect against signs of ageing than retinol, retinyl palmitate and nearly all other forms of non-prescription retinoid.
- A sustained-delivery form of pure retinol in a protective capsule system which supports both the delivery and the effect of Granactive Retinoid.
Both forms of retinoid used avoid the irritation associated with retinoids (including retinol) use while delivering better visible results against signs of ageing.
This product uses next-generation retinoid active technologies which have been shown to achieve better reduction in signs of ageing than retinol without irritation. These technologies cannot be compared directly with retinol itself in terms of concentration because they include a different retinoid molecule, in a similar way that Retinol cannot be compared with Retinoic Acid in terms of concentration.
