THE ORDINARY Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% - 30ml
- WHAT IT IS
- HOW TO USE
This formula combines two of the most powerful brightening agents in skincare: pure Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin, both solubilized in a completely water-free formula for ideal stability.
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin tone and reduces signs of aging. Alpha Arbutin is a highly-purified biosynthetic active ingredient that reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Notes: Vitamin C and Alpha Arbutin are less stable in formulations that contain water and use of them combined in formulations containing water is highly discouraged. This formulation is a water-free, stable solution, and may feel slightly "oily" for a few seconds after application, despite the fact that it is completely free of oil. The Ordinary's portfolio of Vitamin C includes the following formulations:
Apply a few drops to the face in the AM and PM as part of your skincare regimen. Avoid use around the eyes. Use sun protection in the AM.
If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin.
Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to our in-depth guide to patch testing. Keep out of reach of children.
