The Ordinary's Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% is a water-free, stable solution. Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is an effective antioxidant that brightens the skin tone and reduces signs of aging. In its pure form, vitamin C is unstable in water which is why The Ordinary provides it in a water-free formulation. Alpha Arbutin reduces the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone. This formula offers a combination of 8% Ascorbic Acid and 2% Alpha-Arbutin that work together to visibly brighten the look of skin while also targeting the appearance of dark spots and multiple signs of skin aging. The Ordinary offers a host of vitamin C-based products to brighten skin – opt for this one if you’re looking for a ‘moderate’ option and a ‘light oil’ texture.
