Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA

A concentrated serum with pure alpha arbutin and hyaluronic acid

8.90 CAD
Alpha Arbutin reduces the looks of age spots and can help improve skin tone. It's used at a high 2% concentration versus a standard concentration of 1% and supported with a next-generation form of Hyaluronic Acid for enhanced delivery. Alpha Arbutin is much stronger in effect than Arbutin or Beta Arbutin.

Note: Alpha Arbutin is extremely sensitive to degradation in the presence of water if the pH of the formulation is not ideal. The pH of this formula is approximately 4.9 which is shown to be the most suitable pH to minimize degradation of Alpha Arbutin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've been using it for a year for AM & PM and it's really amazing. I prefer this over the Ordinary HA. It's hydrating and I love how it combines well with Buffet and Niacinamide powder. My skin tone has gotten brighter. Over the past year, I'm so happy that I found The Ordinary brand. I enjoyed reading and learning the complexity of the ingredients...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found what works for my skin! I started using this only 3 days go and have been applying morning&night along with the inkey list hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and azelaic acid - and my skin feels and looks amazing I have combo skin ( oily t zone and dry cheeks) and always break out on my cheeks, which leave hyperpigmentation. My skin began to feel dry from using the azelaic acid and night (also a great product to prevent breakouts) - since using alpha arbutin my hyperpigmentation has slightly faded, skin feels plump and hydrated This also makes my skin glow under my makeup and when I wake up in the morning - also no more dull skin Its also reduce the breakouts I had If this has happened in a few days , I cant wait to see how my skin looks in a month!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this serum! I’ve been using this product for a while now, I use it twice a day and am now on my second bottle. It has done wonders for my past acne scarring in such a short amount of time. It feels wonderful on the skin and leaves it feeling nice and smooth. I couldn’t live without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product! I wasn't sure if this would do much for my exhausted skin (from years and years of acne). I have deep red scars, large pores,.. but it definitely is worth the hype!!! :D Feels tightening when applied to moist skin, but after moisturiser you can tell that redness is a lot reduced! Even my husband noticed that transition :D My only wish is larger packaging.... ups, I guess I use the product twice a day :D Thank you The Ordinary team for giving us hope and efficient products :D Please, remain the same reliable company as so many people adore you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! This product is a miracle worker! I have a couple of sun spots on my cheeks and they've practically faded away after using this product for a month. I've been using this on a couple of scars on my body and they're starting to fade too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did not work for me This was suggested to me by an adviser time time ago for my pigmentation. I used it for a month and did not see any difference at all. I gave the rest to a friend and she seems happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ... I use this product in the morning, it absorbs well, I apply it to problem areas, and then I apply niacinamide, in this combination the serum works even better. My post acne and red spots went away very quickly.
