Keen to improve your skin with the age-defying prowess of a retinoid but put off by the potential side effects? The Ordinary’s Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane could be the solution – a high strength, zero-to-low irritation serum that’s been proven to soften fine lines, improve pigmentation problems and revitalise skin, causing it to look fresher and more youthful. ‘Granactive Retinoid’ is a next-generation retinoid active technology, which can not only achieve better anti-ageing results than traditional retinol but do so without the irritation commonly associated with it, including redness and flaking. It still makes the skin more sensitive to UV radiation, however, so thorough protection is recommended.

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. This product must not be used in conjunction with other retinoids including retinol or retinoic acid. This product is not a treatment for acne. 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.

This high-strength, low-irritation serum has been proven to soften fines lines, improve pigment problems and revitalise skin. A water-free solution, this stars a 2% concentration of advanced retinoid active ‘Granactive Retinoid’, which has been shown to defy ageing without any of the irritation commonly caused by retinol use. This is The Ordinary’s moderate strength formulation, for a higher version, try {Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane}.

Squalane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Bisabolol, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil

    I have been using this for a week or two and notice my skin evening out and it’s super hydrating and makes my skin glow.

    5 out of 5 stars
    I was using this at night and actually enjoyed that it was a little oily because it moisturized my skin and I didnt have to use anything after also it does soak in, it didnt cause any irritation so I would order it again with a higher %

    Try this before the expensive ones
    4 out of 5 stars
    I always love The Ordinary products. I've been using them for years, and they're always my go-to before I search anywhere else to see if an active ingredient is going to really work for me. The squalane is a nice addition, but it's a bit tacky so I have to avoid burying my face in my pillow before it's had time to really absorb.
