Why We Love It

This serum is an updated and enhanced version of the original “Buffet” serum. It ticks off your daily dose of peptides, amino acids, hyaluronic acid and probiotics for plump and hydrated skin. 

The Ordinary "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1%

The "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% formula differs from the original "Buffet" as this formula includes a 1% concentration of pure Copper Peptides, increasing its focus on overall skin health. The natural role of these peptides as found in human plasma includes supporting a wide range of skin health functions like maintaining normal immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses. The inclusion of Copper Peptides offers a natural blue tint to the formula. The total concentration of active technologies in this formula is 26.1%.

This formula combines a comprehensive array of studied technologies to target multiple signs of aging at once. The technologies are direct Copper Peptides, also known as GHK-Cu (Copper Tripeptide-1), Matrixyl™ 3000 peptide complex (with palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7), Matrixyl™ synthe'6™ peptide complex (with palmitoyl tripeptide-38), SYN™-AKE peptide complex (with dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate), ARGIRELOX™ peptide complex (with acetyl hexapeptide-8, pentapeptide-18) and a Probiotic complex (with Lactococcus lactis lysate), solubilized in a base of 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple forms of hyaluronic acid.



Apply after cleanser, toner and/or essence.

GHK-Cu is a copper-peptide complex found naturally in the human body. It stimulates the production of several important skin-identical ingredients (e.g. collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans). This ingredient also has significant anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects within the skin, making it a great addition to an anti-aging regimen. 


Boosts the production of 6 major components of the skin matrix (collagen I, III, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid and laminin 5) that result in more even skin and fewer wrinkles, particularly on the forehead and crow's feet.


A reasonably new probiotic ingredient that positively influences both the speed and quality of epidermal growth that results in better barrier function and overall skin quality.
