The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% 30ml
Subcribe to back in stock notification
Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. A milder 5% formula is available here. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. Contraindications: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions. This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid and reducing irritation. Higher pH numbers in such a case would increase salt which counter-intuitively would make the formula even more irritating than if the formula was more acidic. While Lactic Acid can result in quick visible benefits, we generally suggest indirect forms of skin exfoliation in favour of direct forms such as this formula due to potential inflammation and sensitivity associated with acids. Please refer to NIOD's Non-Acid Acid Precursor for such a reference.

Another amazing product!
The Ordinary does it again! Another amazing product! Ever since I started using this product, my skin has gotten so smooth. My pores have gotten so much smaller, and the textured skin on my face has disappeared. After only 4 days of use, the has been such a huge difference! 100% recommend this product!
skin rewinds to my early 20’s smoothness
I use it every night for about two weeks now and my skin rewinds to my early 20’s smoothness. I did purge for about 2-3 days and still are getting some under skin acne every three days around my mouth but that could be from wearing Face Mask Covers during the day.
worth the money
this was so gentle, nice, and worth the money. my skin was actually glowing, went a little crazy with it at first, definitely listen to the 1-3 times a week (3 AT MAX) other than that I will certainly buy this specific product again!
