Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an effective antioxidant that brightens skin and reduces signs of aging.
In its pure form, vitamin C is unstable in water, which is why The Ordinary provides it in a water-free formulation. Alpha Arbutin reduces the appearance of spots and uneven skin tone. This formula offers a combination of 8% Ascorbic Acid and 2% Alpha-Arbutin that work together to visibly brighten the appearance of skin while targeting the appearance of dark spots and multiple signs of skin aging.
Apply a few drops of The Ordinary Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% to the face morning and evening as part of your skincare routine. Use sun protection first thing in the morning.
