Garden of Wisdom's Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum is an advanced retinoid that offers significant defence against the multiple signs of ageing, and may help treat moderate to severe acne.
Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum provides one of the most bio-available, non-prescription forms of Vitamin A, along with an effective delivery system to protect skin against ageing, with little or no irritation. It may also help in the treatment of moderate to severe acne when other treatments have not worked effectively. Retinoids fight breakouts by normalising the removal of dead skin cells that clog pores leading to blackheads, whiteheads and pimples.
All Garden of Wisdom products are cruelty-free, suitable for vegetarians and free from Alcohol and Silicones. Serum bottles are made of PET and are 100% recyclable. pH 6.5 - 6.9.
Our in-house pharmacist, Shabir Daya has written an article about Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum benefits:
Introduce Granactive Retinoid 5% Serum slowly, applying it once every three days at night for the first two to 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. Retinoids may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so be sure to apply an SPF cream during the day.
Do not use on irritated skin and discontinue if irritation occurs. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse with warm water. If using in the day follow with an SPF. Do not use during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding.
