DESCRIPTION

The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5 is a concentrated hydration support formula.

Why We Love It

This serum supports hydration, skin repair and barrier function. It's super lightweight and can be layered with any of your existing skincare formulas! 

The Ordinary Amino Acids + B5

This concentrated solution includes Amino Acids and Amino Acid derivatives creating a combined total concentration of 17% (by weight). This resembles the composition of Amino Acids found in the skin’s own Natural Moisturising Factors and provides enhanced barrier support, elasticity, osmotic balance and desquamation. The formulation also includes a 5% (by weight) concentration of D-Panthenol which is a pro-vitamin of Vitamin B5 to provide surface and below-surface hydration while aiding in skin repair and anti-irritant functions.

Amino Acids + B5 offers non-greasy hydration support for the maintenance of healthy, functioning skin. It may cause a temporary tingling sensation upon application. If desired, the formula can be mixed with other serums or creams upon application to reduce its strength.

ROUTINE

Apply to skin in your AM and/or PM routine daily. Apply after cleansing and before creams and oils. 

HOW TO APPLY

Apply 2-3 drops to face and massage until absorbed. 

FOLLOW WITH

Emulsions, oils, creams and SPF during the day.

THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS

PANTHENOL (VITAMIN B5)

Targets signs of ageing by protecting against free-radical damage: it increases the level of glutathione, an important compound aiding in the oxidation-reduction of cells. This ingredient is also helpful for blemish prone skin: a lack of Vitamin B5 may lead to acne, as a deficiency causes oil glands within the skin to become more active.

AMINO ACIDS

Amino acids are the fundamental constituents of all proteins found in the body. They are part of skin's natural moisturising factors and essential for healthy skin function. They act as water-binding agents, and some have antioxidant properties. Amino acids can be combined with other ingredients that have skin-restorative ability to work in unison to fight signs of ageing (as found in this formula).
