Granactive Retinoid (also referred to as 'the novel retinoid') helps renew skin plumpness, elasticity, and hydration to provide a radiant and fresh appearance. They've been proven in studies to encourage cellular turnover and stimulate collagen production. It also stimulates skin cell proliferation, which restores thickness to the skin, making it firm & youthful.

Carotenoids are good antioxidants for the skin and are found in several plants. Carotenoids can stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to increase its density, elasticity, and firmness. It can help reduce skin pigmentation by decreasing the size of melanocytes and melanin levels. Carotenoids help stimulate epidermal regeneration helping to soften and smooth skin.

Do not let retinol scare you ! 😁

Let me just start off by saying I love this product so much! My first time using retinol in my skincare routine and it has gone beyond my expectations (in a very good way), it's a game changer you guys! It's great for my sensitive combination skin but also strong enough to see a difference in just a couple of few weeks. I didn't get the purge you hear about. My pores are smaller, clearer and my skin has become alot smoother. I wake up in the morning with smooth skin which is so rare for me. 😄 Definitely recommend this 2% Granactive retinoid 💯💯!
