    Next-generation retinol-alternative technologies to address signs of aging.

    Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion is a creamy serum that targets 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. This advanced ingredient is not only proven to deliver comparable results to retinol; it’s less likely to cause irritation.

love!

I love this product so much! I love how gentle it is on my skin and does not leave irritation like retinol sometimes does! The squalane is a nice added touch for hydration! I love the ordinary products!

I'm in love with all the brand's products, but I still didn't know about retinol. I loved testing another product from the line. As always the best products at the best prices. I really love it!!! I use everyday

I've used this product in the past, and it seemed to work for me okay. I recently tried to start using it again after a break and was having a lot of peculiar redness and breaking out in areas that aren't prone to that. I was confused about why my skin suddenly didn't like this when it seemed fine before, I've used regular retinol products without that kind of skin freakout. I realized I never looked at the ingredients list when I previously purchased this. I wasn't having problems with the retinoid, it wasn't working for me because this has some of those Fatty Alcohol ingredients that my face just does not like at all. So sometimes it's not "purging", the problem might be the Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Isononanoate or other Fatty Alcohols causing the issues. If you don't react to those, this product may work better for you.

I have only been using this a few days and and already tell a difference. I have horrible skin. I have rosacea and eczema and skin damage. This was so soothing and calming surprisingly to my skin. Yes I still have scarring but I can tell a difference in my skin texture. I will definitely continue to use this.

Ehhhh... I could live without it

I wanted to love this product but i cannot. Once applied it feels fine but once you layer your moisturizer, foundation and concealer this thing makes you start to peel. almost like you have dry skin. Now my face is not dry i have combination. I tried to let it soak in so i would brush my teeth while it absorbed. But idk this product i feel isn't worth the hype at all.

If you’re looking for one

Great if you’re in the market of a retinol. Super strong and recomend only if you have a locked down skincare routine. Use literally one drop every other week I’m also pretty thin so

Simple and works

I have sworn by this product to help with early and mid signs of aging for years. It’s nice and thin, layers well and doesn’t irritate! But most of all…. It just works!!

Trust 👏🏼 the 👏🏼 process

I promise. See it thru. Trust the process. The purging phase sucks but it is so worth it. This product is so great. For weeks 2-7 I was going through the purging phase and I’m so glad I stuck it out. So worth it I promise.

Added to PM routine :)

This is great. My skin definitely feels better and different! Remember to keep refrigerated. I use it only 2/3 times a week because it is a strong product. I did have a few pumps at the beginning.

Causes too many breakouts

Tried this for a few weeks, skin cycling every few days between glycolic acid one night, granactive the next night and then intense hydration the next night. I always used toner first and covered the granactive with moisture. This is my second retinoid product to ever use (first being Good Molecules 1% oil). Unfortunately this causes me to break out almost immediately every time I use it, small zits, they clear up quickly, but it’s so consistent and the only change I’ve made to my routine, that this is the cause. I’m sure it does not do this for everyone, but my skin is not loving it. So I’m going back to good molecules, which never caused me to break out.

Great for Dry or Sensitive Skin

I tried the viral pink serum from ordinary and didn’t like it, so I was apprehensive about this. But WOW. The best way to get your retinol if you have dry or sensitive skin. I use this with a red light wand and it provides the perfect level of glide and my skin looks wonderful the next day. Never broke me out or caused redness or peeling.

If I could, I would put a 0 in here. This product is an absolute crap. It caused me a severe allergic reaction which came out as a swollen face, my lips and eyes specifically. It happened 3 times and the last time it even caused breathing issues since my throat was swollen as well. All of that happened during the night so I could easily stop breathing while sleeping. This product is dangerous!
