This water-free solution contains a 2% concentration of an advanced retinoid active complex called Granactive Retinoid that has been shown to offer better results against multiple signs of aging than retinol without any of the irritation and drawbacks common with retinol. Granactive Retinoid, an active technology from Grant Industries, is a solubilized system of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, a highly-advanced form of retinoid which is, in fact, a non-prescription ester of all-trans direct retinoic acid that offers a multi-fold better effect against signs of aging than retinol, retinyl palmitate and nearly all other forms of non-prescription retinoid. 

This product uses next-generation retinoid active technologies which have been shown to achieve better reduction in signs of aging than retinol without irritation. These technologies cannot be compared directly with retinol itself in terms of concentration because they include a different retinoid molecule, in a similar way that Retinol cannot be compared with Retinoic Acid in terms of concentration. If you have interest in a retinol product, please refer to our Retinol portfolio above which products contain pure retinol and cost less since many retinol technologies cost less than their next-generation counterparts like Granactive Retinoid. 

Squalane, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Bisabolol, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Solanum Lycopersicum (Tomato) Fruit Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil.

Apply a small amount to face in the PM as part of your skincare regimen, after water serums but before heavier treatments.

Do not use with other retinoid treatments. Avoid unprotected solar exposure. Store in a cool, dry place.

(Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.)

We're tired of crazy markups and unavailability for Asian beauty products in Australia. We're here to combat that.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should we purchase from you?

    We're Australian made and owned :) 

    We have a love for skincare. 

    One of the main reasons why we started this business was to ensure that Australians get access to affordable Asian beauty products! We believe everyone should feel beautiful, inside and out. We found the joy in Asian Beauty a few years ago - and while it's not only helped improve our skin and self-esteem consequently, it's definitely one of the favourite part of day, getting to unwind and pamper ourselves! 

    We run a little differently to other companies. While we love curating products (and will continue to do so), we want to get products that you want! So please, feel free to contact us and let us know what products/ranges you want!

  • I'm looking for a particular product that you don't have! Can I make a request?

    We're very much open to suggestions for beloved products that you want! 

    We know the struggle of being in Australia and having such limited ranges, expensive overseas shipping, high markups, weak Australian dollar and long wait times (sometimes, we just want instant gratification!). 

    We're working on curating a larger range of products and would love your help!

    Please let us know of any products that you wish to see on the store here. We appreciate any feedback given! Our goal for the store is to listen to you guys.


    We can't always guarantee that we'll be able to get the item in, but we'll endeavor to try and get it in. 

  • Why are your products so cheap? Are they authentic?

    Yes, they are! We've priced ourselves without extreme high markups - our ultimate goal isn't profit. We want to be sustainable yes, but our goal is to make sure that Australians have access to Asian skincare! We know the struggle of not being able to find a particular product OR finding the product that is crazily marked up AND crazy shipping fees. 

    We've priced our products reasonably in accordance to the shipping prices it takes to get to us.

    We have direct suppliers in Korea and Japan.

  • When will you ship my order?

    All parcels are shipped from Sydney, Australia within 24-72 hours of receiving the order, excluding weekends and public holidays. If there are any delays, we will notify you straight away.

    Generally if you place an order before 9pm, it'll be packed on the same day to be picked up by our couriers the next day. If it isn't, please expect it to be packed within the next 1-3 days after you've placed your order.

    We pack all orders from Sunday - Thursday (i.e. if you place an order on Friday, it won't be packed until Sunday to be picked up by our couriers on Monday).

  • How much is shipping and how long will it take?
