The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% 30ml


Achieve a visibly brighter complexion with The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%, a vitamin c serum that targets the signs of ageing and dullness to give you glowing, youthful-looking skin.

The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12% encompasses all of the radiance-boosting benefits of vitamin c. This water-stable derivative helps to produce collagen, which promotes firmer and plumper skin, while it inhibits melanin production to help balance out uneven skin tone and brighten the skin. The serum is incredibly lightweight, meaning it absorbs into the skin instantly, and doesn't feel heavy or greasy after you apply.

Antioxidant vitamin c also protects the skin from free radicals and environmental damage, such as pollution, UV rays and cigarette smoke linked to premature ageing. Vitamin c is an essential preventative measure to defend the skin against signs of ageing, and will keep your complexion looking healthy and glowing.

Why We Love It

Vitamin c is one ingredient that we recommend everyone adds to their skincare regime as it’s an antioxidant that your body can’t produce naturally. If vitamin c is new to you, this is a great introduction to it as it’s considered the gold standard in terms of vitamin c because it’s stable in water. For any The Ordinary fans who find the higher concentrations like the 100% P Direct Ascorbic Acid too strong, this is a less potent option that will still deliver.

Innovative and scientific, The Ordinary has formulated the serum to be effortless as well as effective. You can apply this formula with precision thanks to its built-in pipette, and UV-protective bottle ensures that your vitamin c (notoriously unstable) maintains the formula's potency.

How To Use It

Squeeze the pipette to draw a few drops and apply to your face and massage into the skin as part of your morning and evening skincare regime.
