Some of the best night creams on the market are made using the power of Granactive™ – a next-generation retinoid. This ingredient provides the same benefits as other retinoids, but was expertly designed to be gentler on the skin so that there’s a lower risk of irritation. Once you work this retinoid into your regular skincare regime, you’ll be on your way to achieving and maintaining a firm, youthful, and clear complexion.
What is Granactive™?
Granactive Retinoid (AKA hydroxypinacolone retinoate) is a derivative of vitamin A that is in the same family as other synthetic and natural vitamin A derivatives, such as tretinoin and retinol. This non-prescription retinoid is one of the most bioavailable options compared to other derivatives. This means that once it hits the skin, it is able to work quickly and effectively to provide the most optimal effects.
Like other retinoids, Granactive Retinoid targets signs of aging and acne, and can also minimize sun damage. However, what makes it a cut above the rest is that it’s proven to be less irritating.1 This means there’s a lower risk of experiencing the dryness, redness, flakiness, and other forms of skin aggravation often associated with prescription retinoids.
How Does It Work?
Granactive Retinoid is able to renew the complexion by stimulating skin cell proliferation and turnover. Skin cell proliferation helps restore thickness to the skin, which becomes thinner and less elastic as we age.
On the other hand, skin cell turnover has to do with shedding old dead skin cells and replacing them with newer, fresher skin cells. Our natural skin cell turnover process slows down over the years. By stimulating this process, Granactive helps keep the complexion looking younger-looking and radiant, while also helping to prevent clogged pores.
Additionally, Granactive Retinoid works by reducing the breakdown of collagen. This protein plays a major role in maintaining youthful skin, but our body produces less as we get older. By supporting existing collagen and increasing the natural production of this protein, the retinoid is able to both minimize and prevent signs of aging.
