Next-generation retinol-alternative technologies to address signs of aging in an oil-like format.
Signs of Aging, Textural Irregularities, Uneven Skin Tone
Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Squalane
Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a light, oil-like serum that targets visible signs of aging through a highly-advanced retinoid active, one of the best all-around ingredients for skin. This next-generation retinoid improves the appearance of fine and dynamic lines that arise from a loss of collagen and elastin while evening skin texture and tone. It’s further supported with squalane, a moisturizing agent naturally found in the skin. That means it not only delivers comparable visible results to retinol, it’s less likely to cause irritation.
