BFFECT Granactive Retinoid Emulsion 2% + GABA


Granactive Retinoid (HPR or Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate) 2%
A new member of the retinoid family and a next-generation anti-aging active for cosmetics. This FDA-approved ingredient works similar to retinoic acid, the metabolite of retinol, but without its irritation. It helps skin renewal, reduces surface roughness and age spots, and prevents skin scaling.

It used in this formulation is a common type of non-proteinogenic amino acids in animals, plants, and also human bodies. Its importance lies in how it regulates the physiological functions of the body. GABA is also an ECOCERT-certified natural ingredient that helps reduce fine lines, improves skin elasticity and smoothness, repair damaged skin, and promotes cell reproduction.

It mainly extracted from Roman chamomile, is an anti-allergy and antibacterial ingredient suitable for sensitive skin for its mildness. Also, because of its great antibacterial property, it promotes wound healing, improves skin roughness and redness, slows down skin aging, and enhances skin’s resistance to external stressors.
