Garden of Wisdom's Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum contains 5% of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, an advanced retinoid which offers significant benefits against the multiple signs of ageing.
Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum is a technology from Grant Industries providing 0.5% of an ester of All-Trans Retinoic Acid and is one of the most bio-available, non-prescription forms of Vitamin A. Granactive Retinoid provides an effective delivery system to protect skin against ageing when compared to retinol with little or no irritation.
Granactive Retinoid Serum may also be of value in treating moderate to severe acne when other treatments have not worked effectively. Retinoids fight breakouts on face by normalising the removal of dead skin cells that clog pores leading to blackheads, whiteheads and pimples.
Caution: Do not use any Retinoid or Retinol based product during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding. Retinoids can make your skin more sensitive to UV radiation and it would be advisable to use a sunscreen during the day.
All Garden of Wisdom products are cruelty-free, suitable for vegetarians and free from alcohol and silicones. Garden of Wisdom uses as few ingredients as possible to allow the actives to reach the deeper layers of skin to improve the appearance of skin.

How to use Granactive Retinoid
Start off slow - apply once every three days in your PM regimen for the first two or three weeks gradually increasing application thereafter.
Use the smallest amount possible - applying more will not help it work faster. As a guide, use a pea-sized amount for your entire face.
Use in the evening - retinoids may make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Use an SPF cream during the day.
