The Ordinary Retinol 1% in Squalane is a water-free solution that contains 1% pure Retinol, an ingredient that can reduce the appearances of fine lines, of photo damage and of general skin ageing. While Retinol has been studied extensively, it is irritating to the skin and newer technologies exist that mimic the visible effects of Retinol without causing skin irritation. For this reason, we generally recommend using Granactive Retinoid 2% or Granactive Retinoid 5% instead of this formula
Shown to offer specific skin-brightening benefits, The Ordinary’s Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% consists of a water-soluble derivative of vitamin C. Though less potent than direct L-Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl glucoside offers high stability and comfortable use – this formulation is delivered as an effortlessly easy to use serum. In terms of effects, how do you like the sound of defence from free radical damage, even, radiant skin tone and diminished signs of ageing? Pretty difficult to resist! Just a few drops morning and night and you’re good to go.
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging. This water-free formula provides 30% pure L-Ascorbic Acid which remains completely stable due to the absence of water. Due to the presence of very light silicones, this formulation feels smooth on the skin despite the suspension format of the formulation, avoiding the short-lived gritty feeling of the original Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% formula. This treatment is ideally applied at bedtime.
With naturally derived grapefruit, Vitamin C and Salicylic Acid, the Neutrogena oil-free face wash starts working instantly to clear breakouts and even the marks they leave behind. With maximum strength Salicylic Acid, this unique formula powerfully treats and helps prevent breakoutsâ€”even blackheads. It eliminates oil and dirt, as well as rinses clean without over-drying.
This lightweight daily moisturizer delivers every essential vitamin for healthy-looking skin, including clarifying B3 (Niacinamide) to help balance oil, brightening antioxidant Vitamin C, and soothing Vitamin E. Perfect for normal skin types looking to keep skin healthy.
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 the 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.
AcneFree Therapeutic Sulfur Mask uses the power of 3.5% sulfur, as an active ingredient to reduce the number and severity of acne. This formula also helps eliminate excess oil and cares for the skin with Vitamin C and bentonite clay
Vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces the appearance of signs of aging. This product is a water-free suspension of 23% L-Ascorbic Acid powder.
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, there are 2 important things to consider:
1) 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.
2) The powder exposure to the skin disallows the formula to feel like a serum, lotion or cream and each application requires a few seconds to feel absorbed by the skin. This formula feels gritty for a few seconds after application.
