What exactly is Granactive Retinoid?

Granactive retinoid, or hydroxypinacolone retinoate, is a synthetic retinoic acid ester. This active compound is a derivative of Vitamin A - one of the most studied ingredients for preventing and reversing the signs of aging and photo-damage in skin. Compared to other retinol derivatives, this is one of the most biologically available and provides a high dermal delivery with minimal incidence of redness, peeling, or irritation.


The benefits of Granactive Retinoid

The skin naturally becomes thinner and less elastic with age, while external aggressors like sun exposure and pollution further exacerbate matters. And although this cannot be reversed, it can be managed and improved upon greatly with a high performing skincare solution that quickly transforms the health of your
skin. This is where Granactive retinoid comes in, stimulating skin cell proliferation, helping to reduce collagen breakdown and restoring skin’s elasticity and suppleness over time.

By increasing the rate of cellular turnover, it minimises the appearance of fine lines and helps prevent future wrinkle development. It also delivers the same anti-aging properties of older iterations of topical retinoids, but without harsh side effects. In addition to mitigating the signs of UV damage, this active can also help treat acne-prone skin and promote a brighter, more luminous complexion.
