Achieve a more youthful complexion with The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion, an advanced skincare serum that uses granactive retinoid, a next-generation retinoid active technology that avoids causing irritation to the skin that is often produced by retinoid use.

Gentle in its consistency upon application, this lightweight serum works to minimise the signs of ageing and uneven texture, helping to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots.

This emulsion is free from silicone and alcohol, and is also vegan and cruelty-free. This formula can make the skin more sensitive to UV radiation. Thorough skin protection is advised in conjunction with use.

Key Benefits

  • Formulated with moderate-strength retinoid
  • Low risk of the irritation commonly associated with retinol skincare
  • A lightweight and creamy emulsion
  • Works to treat a variety of skin conditions, including pigmentation, common signs of ageing and acne
  • Helps to minimise the appearance of wrinkles

Smooth soft skin

This is the closest to prescription quality tretinoin equivalent that I have found. Works better than retinol. Gently exfoliates the skin and my skin always feels so plump and soft. Fades any pigmentation spots and reduces acne scarring by slightly resurfacing the texture. I use it over hyaluronic acid serum and add a moisturizer on top of it. I have bought few bottles as gifts for friends and they love it.

Best Use: Breakouts & Acne, Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Treat Redness, Reduce Dullness, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Uneven Skin Texture, Visible Pores, Firming, Anti-Aging

Strong

I got this recently to level up on my retinoid use. It is quite strong. If you are new to using retinoids do think twice before getting such a higher concentration as it can be very irritating. I would recommend products with 0.5 or less for a beginner. Otherwise it’s a waste of product.

Best Use: Anti-Aging

My fav retinoid

I always go back to this product even when I like trying new stuff, It’s good value and delivers results much better than other retinoids I’ve tried. My skin isn’t sensitive to it and I use this every night. I like how my skin glows the next morning when I wake up.

Best Use: Treat Pigmentation / Dark Spots, Minimise Fine Lines & Wrinkles, Uneven Skin Texture, Anti-Aging
