How to use The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane:
- After cleansing and toning, apply a few drops to the skin before you apply your face moisturizer.
- Retinoids make your skin more photosensitive, so be sure to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen daily.
Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water-based serums but before heavier treatments. Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure. If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised.

Our formulations are updated from time to time as part of our commitment to innovation. As such, the ingredient list shown here may vary from the box of the product depending on time and region of purchase.
The Ordinary recently made changes to the existing formulas under the “Retinoids” category of The Ordinary in standing with their commitment to innovation and further improving our formulations. These changes are intended to ensure and maintain the consistent stability of our products in all the regions we sell in, especially regions of the tropical climate. In addition to those changes, the aforementioned formulas, may appear darker in colour and impart a detectable Rosemary-like scent. This is expected and should not be taken as an indication of product instability.
