    What makes this product unique?

    This impressive vitamin A emulsion professionally includes two well-studied retinoid actives:-

    a) 2% Granactive Retinoid - a complex of solubilized hydroxypinacolone retinoate (HPR). HPR is a new retinoid precursor and vitamin A derivative that is celebrated for its high anti-aging effectiveness, great stability and low capacity for skin irritation, as compared to other forms of non-prescription retinoid.

    b) Retinol - A time-released form of active retinol in a shielding capsule technology to aid penetration and the effects of HPR on the skin. Retinol is a powerhouse cell-communicating agent that carries several benefits, including wrinkle-softening, skin-strengthening, and re-firming, for overall younger-looking appearance.

    All The Ordinary products carried by Worthee Cosmetics are 100% authentic (or your money back) and fragrance free.

    This makes my aging, sun-damaged and very sensitive skin looking clear, soft and smooth. I'm very impressed.


    Fabulous product! Noticed a difference after first application. I had some fine, red, thread veins on one cheek. It has faded them significantly. Skin is smoother, more even toned and brighter looking.
