What is 2% Granactive Retinoid Serum?
Granactive Retinoid is a next-generation anti-aging ingredient that improves cellular turnover for rejuvenating effects with significantly less potential for irritation. 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. 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.
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (HPR) is the newest member of the “royal family of skincare” (see who is who on this cool retinoids family tree), the retinoid family. The queen of the family is the FDA-approved anti-aging superstar, retinoic acid, aka tretinoin and HPR seems to be a gentle but influential sister princess to the queen.
Benefits of 2% Granactive Retinoid. The skin becomes thinner and less elastic with age and sun exposure. Granactive retinoid stimulates skin cell proliferation, helping to reduce collagen breakdown and restore skin elasticity and suppleness. Increasing the rate of cellular turnover, minimizes 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 without harsh side effects. In addition to mitigating the signs of UV damage, this activity can help treat acne-prone skin and promote a brighter, more luminous complexion.
Due to its low potential for irritation and its oxidative stability, granactive retinoid works well with several other skincare actives, including powerful AHA exfoliators. When it comes to achieving a radiant, youthful complexion, the key lies in choosing clinically-tested skincare ingredients that don’t cancel each other out, undermine the skin’s natural oil barrier, or provoke irritation.

How to use 2% Granactive Retinoid?
Granactive retinoid is a useful component of most anti-aging and anti-acne skin care regimens. It is the perfect gateway product for those new to retinoids or Vitamin A derivatives – and who want to minimize the redness and sensitivity that stronger ingredients can cause. Patch testing is always a good idea, and if irritation develops, do not use it for a few days, and consult your dermatologist.
Granactive retinoid works at a profound level, affecting gene expression to enhance collagen production and promote more evenly-toned skin. For best results, always apply it in the evening, after lighter serums, and before heavier moisturizers. Avoid unprotected sun exposure since retinoids increase sensitivity to UV rays. Daily use of broad-spectrum sunscreen is a must.
