THE ORDINARY GRANACTIVE RETINOID 2% 30ML
This formulation combines two forms of next-generation retinoid actives in a combined concentration of 2% by weight:
These two actives are:
a) Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is a highly-advanced form of retinoid which is in fact a non-prescription ester of all-trans direct retinoic acid that offers a multi-fold better effect against signs of ageing than retinol retinyl palmitate and nearly all other forms of non-prescription retinoid;
b) a sustained-delivery form of pure retinol in a protective capsule system which supports both the delivery and the effect of Solubilized Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate.
Both forms of retinoid used avoid the irritation associated with retinoid (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. If you have interest in a retinol product please refer to our Retinol 1% formula which contains 1% pure retinol and costs less since many retinol technologies cost less than their next-generation counterparts like Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate. Advanced Retinoid 2% achieves better visible anti-ageing results than Retinol 1% with less irritation but Retinol 1% is suitable if you are looking specifically for a pure Retinol formula.
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.
What you get:
Apply a few drops to face in the evening as part of your skincare regimen. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Use sun protection during the day.

I’ve used a few products in this brand and have found them all to exceed my expectations. I’m 36 and a smoker with an average diet and my skin has never been this soft. Everyone has noticed the difference in the fine lines and colour of my skin. I have been using this about 5 times( nightly) a week, I use this in conjunction with other products, most in this brand. (Others: ASAP, dermalogical) and will continue to use this, the price and quality will exceed your expectations

Did you find this review helpful?
I have pretty sensitive skin and have tried to use Retin-A in the past but it was too much even once per week. This I can use three times a week no problem (could probably use more but I haven't tried) as it's so gentle. I wake up in the morning with brighter, clearer skin. Love it
This product was very affordable, and after just 1 week of usages, my skin is noticeable softer, with the fine lines around my eyes being smoother. My skin is usually very sensitive, and new products are often irritating and cause me to break out. However I have not yet experienced that with this product, and will definitely be repurchasing it when I have finished it.
I've used a lot of this skincare range and love it. Such a great brand and incredible value! This product is a bit harsher on your skin so best to use once a week then 2-3 times a week once your skin is used to it
