The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane 30ml


Treat signs of ageing with The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane, a water-free solution that contains a 2% concentration of advanced retinoid active, Granactive Retinoid.

Known to achieve a better reduction in signs of ageing than retinol without irritation, the Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane helps to soften fine lines and reduce pigmentation whilst rejuvenating the complexion.

Despite its moderate formula, the innovative formula will not cause irritation commonly associated with retinoid use, including redness and flaking, making it the ideal choice for those looking to avoid such side effects.

Apply a small amount to the face at night, after water serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments and use SPF daily throughout use. Store in a cool, dry place.

Free from water, alcohol, oil, silicones, nuts, gluten and soy.

Vegan, Cruelty-free.

The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane 30ml is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Early days This is only my third week using this so it’s hard for me to comment on its effectiveness. However, I haven’t had any of the issues I have read about relating to retinol like dry or peeling skin. I’d say after my first use my skin was dehydrated, but not flakey or anything, the next day, after the second use it felt dry at night when I had it on but was fine the next day and after the third it wasn’t dry at all. I started using 3 times in my first week, 4 in my second and this week I’ve been using it every night. I did think this was a low percent to start on but I now realise it’s not, so you may want to go for a lower percentage if this is your first time, saying that I’m not having any issues. I put it on at night and leave it for 30 mins before moisturising my skin well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good No adverse side effects and leaves skin feeling comfortable and moisturised. I have only just started using this product therefore I can't say if it's had much effect as yet. I have quite sensitive skin and it seems a gentle product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product It doesn’t really have a smell to it and you only need a little bit. The oil is very runny but has left my face feeling soft and smooth. I can really comment on the effectiveness as I’ve only been using it a couple of days, so not sure if does what it’s supposed to do. Overall a good value product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the they say I have tried a very expensive retinol product in the past which did nothing for my skin except leave me looking like a scaly reptile...not a good look I have to say. This product has not caused any flakiness opr drying & after using for approx 2 weeks I can most defintely see a difference. My skin looks a lot "fresher" & brighter. As this product cost less than a tenth of what I paid for rhe other retinol I consider this an absolute bargain
