This water-free formula provides 30% L-Ascorbic acid (a pure form of vitamin C) that remains completely stable thanks to the absence of water. When applied topically, this form of vitamin C has been shown to brighten complexions and defy multiple signs of skin ageing and the addition of very light silicones in this formulation means that it feels super-smooth on the skin. Simply apply at bedtime (you may experience a tingling sensation in the first weeks of use) and wake up to the skin you’ve been dreaming of.
Want to brighten your skin and defy signs of ageing (we’re talking discolouration, fine lines and dark circles) overnight? You need The Ordinary’s Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone. In its pure form of L-Ascorbic acid, vitamin C is an effective antioxidant that has been shown to visibly brighten skin and reduce signs of ageing when applied topically. This waterless formula provides skin with a very high concentration (30%) of pure L-Ascorbic acid that remains completely stable due to the absence of water. The addition of very light silicones means that this formulation feels gorgeously smooth on the skin, although a strong (but non-irritating) sensation can be expected during the first 1-2 weeks of use until the skin’s tolerance to a high concentration of vitamin C is improved (the formula can be mixed with other creams and serums to reduce this sensation if needed). Ideally applied at night, this fabulous formula works hard while you do the opposite, leaving you with smooth, bright and even skin when morning comes around.
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.
