The Ordinary "Buffet" Serum
The Ordinary "Buffet" Serum is a multi-technology peptide serum.
Why We Love It
Offering peptides, probiotics, amino acids and hydrating ingredients, this serum is a no-brainer for daily skin support.
This formula combines a comprehensive array of studied technologies to target multiple signs of aging at once. The technologies are 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), Probiotic complex (with lactococcus lactis lysate), in a base of 11 skin-friendly amino acids and multiple hyaluronic acid complexes. The total concentration of these technologies in the formula by weight is 25.1%. (References are made to third-party trademarks in this description.

Note: The name of this formula was inspired by some brands referring to their expensive products offering combinations of these technologies as a "buffet", distastefully comparing such products to buffets that offer various kinds of food in one sitting.
Apply after cleanser, toner and/or essence.

THE FORMULA FOCUS INGREDIENTS
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 humectant naturally found in our skin, this ingredient infuses the epidermis (top layer of the skin) with valuable moisture. Provides lasting hydration for the skin.
Lactococcus Ferment Lysate
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.
