CLAIM TO FAME: A stable suspension of 30% pure l-ascorbic acid in light silicones
FAST FACTS: Helps reverse multiple signs of skin aging with vitamin C, an effective antioxidant; naturally brightens and refines tone and texture; feels smooth on the skin thanks to very light silicones despite the suspension format of the formulation; vegan formula is cruelty-free and doesn’t contain water, alcohol, oil, nut, gluten, and soy
PERFECT FOR: Spotty, dull, rough skin

”I absolutely love this product! It has become a staple in my skincare routine replacing the original Vitamin C. The consistency is definitely different than the Vit C 23%, the formula feels thicker, but once applied to the skin it has an extremely light/airy feeling and goes on very matte. It instantly minimizes my pores making them look pretty much non-existent (some morning my skin looks airbrushed because my pores are reduced so much). I use this product in conjunction with the Resveratrol and together they are a dream team. I have extremely sensitive and dry skin and have not had any irritation or breakouts occur. There is at times an immediate stinging sensation, but it goes away after a few seconds. Overall, this product has left my skin feeling baby soft and with the most even complexion I could dream of! Another amazing product by The Ordinary!”

”Really like this product. I wear it during the day and it leaves my skin super smooth and ready for makeup. My skin looks brighter and I have been using this product for about a month now.”

WHAT YOU GET: (1) Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone
NET WEIGHT: 30ml
INGREDIENTS: Dimethicone, Ascorbic Acid, Polysilicone-11, PEG-10 Dimethicone
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.
Apply a small amount to face in the AM or the PM (PM preferred). A tingling sensation can be expected after application. If this sensation is too strong, this formula can be diluted on each application with your favourite serum or cream.
Note: The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically. With such format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin’s tolerance to such high exposure is elevated. If the sensation is too strong to tolerate, the formula can be mixed on each application with other creams or serums of your preference.
