What makes this product unique?

This powerful vitamin A serum formulated with skin-protecting squalane professionally includes two well-studied ingredients:-

a) 5% 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. This superbly high, yet gentle strength dramatically resolves difficult aging concerns.

b) Squalane - a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the human skin sebum. It has very high emollience, is an incomparable hydrator. Consistent use prevents loss of hydration that damages dermal flexibility. This ingredient never clogs pores.

Note: We recommend pregnant moms to use products containing retinoids only after the breastfeeding stage.

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