Stripping back unnecessary packaging and misleading ingredients, The Ordinary offers an abundance of brilliant, high-performance products – but the brand has outdone itself with this innovation. Ladies and gentlemen, meet your skin’s new best friend: vitamin C powder. Vitamin C has long been exalted for its brightening, skin-unifying, age-defying powers – but it’s often difficult to keep stable and effective. That’s why this ultra-fine powder is so good, as it provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. Expect a strong tingling (but non-irritating) sensation as your skin adjusts in the first 1-2 weeks.
As most skin care buffs will know, vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin, evens out tone and reduces signs of ageing. A suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder, this formula provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of vitamin C topically. This extremely effective method visibly targets the appearance of uneven skin tone, dullness and other hallmarks of ageing. The powder can be mixed with other treatments (except those containing niacinamide or EUK 134) so it will slot in perfectly to any ritual. With this format, a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation is to be expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use while your skin’s tolerance to vitamin C is elevated.
HOW TO USE
Mix a small amount with other treatments in the palm of your hand and apply to face in the AM or the PM. A tingling sensation can be expected after application. Do not mix with formulations containing Niacinamide or EUK 134.
If topical Vitamin C is used as part of skin care, it should be applied at alternate times with EUK 134 or Niacinamide (ideally Vitamin C in the PM and EUK 134/Niacinamide in the AM). Otherwise, EUK 134/Niacinamide can affect the integrity of pure-form Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid).
