The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder 20g


Illuminate your complexion with The Ordinary 100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder, a powerful vitamin c powder that is added to your favourite serum or moisturiser* to help with signs of ageing like dullness and uneven skin tone.

L-ascorbic acid Powder provides the most direct exposure of high concentrations of vitamin c, which is renowned for its radiance-boosting properties. The ultra-fine vitamin c powder helps to boost collagen production, which keeps skin looking plump, supple and glowing.

Antioxidant, vitamin c protection from free radicals, which can cause premature ageing. A sprinkle of this powerful vitamin c powder in your moisturiser will deliver youthful-looking skin that is smooth and even as well as brighten dull skin.

Why We Love It

The Ordinary has created this innovative powder so that you can amplify the results of your favourite anti-ageing skincare with all of the benefits of vitamin c. Not only will it help transform your skin, but it will also transform the skincare products you already have, and give skin additional protection thanks to the antioxidant qualities of vitamin c.

The extremely potent Ascorbic Acid is protected in a glass jar and includes a small white spoon for easy distribution of the powder.

How To Use It

Mix a small amount of the fine white powder with other treatments* in the palm of your hand and then massage onto your skin. Use once daily, either in your morning or evening skincare regime.

Due to the high potency of the vitamin c, a non-irritating tingling sensation is expected during the first 1-2 weeks, lessening over time as your skin becomes accustomed.

*The L-Ascorbic Acid Powder shouldn’t be used with treatments containing niacinamide of EUK 134, as they can affect the integrity of this pure-form vitamin c.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must buy for hormonal acne & skin tone issues At first I was a little sceptical to try it since it was a powder but I’ve been adding it to my oil to moisturise my face, as well as my face masks & the The Ordinary retinol 1 serum at night andmy face has NEVER looked better. Overnight using it the first time, my hormonal acne significantly reduced. It’s been almost a month since I’ve been using the powder and my scars are 90% gone, my dark circles are literally fading so fast and my skin tone is a lot clearer and brighter. Definitely would recommend anyone and everyone to try it - you’ll see faster results if you use the AHA mask and the mandelic serum from the Ordinary too
