Retinol the ordinary what it is for

The Ordinary’s signature Retinol 1% Oil in Squalene is a highly stable, water-free, lightweight anti-aging serum containing pure retinol which is an ingredient that lightens dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
Retinol which is a Vitamin A derivative reduces the appearance of wrinkles, lack of firmness and luminosity. It stimulates cell turnover, lightening spots and protecting the skin from free radicals.

Tomato extract with lycopene that has great antioxidant properties that delay aging by the contribution of vitamin A, B and C that also help regulate the PH of the skin. Stimulate collagen production to work on skin firmness. It fights against flaccidity.

Hyaluronic acid the ordinary

How are you? How are you doing with the de-escalation phases? Here in Madrid we are going slow. But well, with philosophy! And while we get back to normality (or «new normality»), it’s time for a review! This time of a product that I’m in love with: retinol 0.2% from The Ordinary!
Squalene: is a polyunsaturated hydrocarbon of the triterpenoid family. It is a low viscosity oil with numerous properties for the skin. Among the most important are its moisturizing power and its antioxidant action.
An important aspect regarding squalene is that this oil can be extracted from vegetable sources (such as wheat germ oil, olive oil, or rice bran), or from animal sources, more specifically from shark liver. Therefore, it is very important that when buying products with squalene oil, we make sure of its origin. In this way we will avoid unnecessary animal suffering.

The ordinary granactive retinoid 2% emulsion what is it used for?

Retinoids, Vitamin A analogs, are used primarily for acne or psoriasis treatments, and to treat hyperpigmentation and photoaging. They are also used for warts and keratosis.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is used to treat photoaging and blemishes. It helps to increase the elasticity and firmness of the skin, reducing wrinkles and preventing them from appearing. It promotes a glowing and younger looking face.
Ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate is a derivative of vitamin C, in this case oil-soluble. Being a derivative, its potency is not the same as that of vitamin C, but it can be used in higher concentrations without the disadvantages of the latter.
Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate is another water-soluble vitamin C derivative. So, again, it is less potent than Vitamin C itself, but it is the derivative that offers the most brightening to the skin. The formula shows a concentration of 10%, which is the maximum that can be solubilized in water, as it is extremely difficult to do so at higher concentrations.

The ordinary retinol 0.5% in squalane what is it for?

The Ordinary has become a phenomenon thanks to its low prices and word of mouth. The effectiveness of its Retinol serum and many of its other products is no longer a secret to almost anyone. A candy of such caliber that Estée Lauder bought it a few months ago.
Retinol is the cosmetic form of vitamin A that was first used almost half a century ago to treat acne. Little remains of those highly aggressive treatments. The new formulas are effective but much more gentle, respectful and without the adverse reactions they used to have.
At 0.2%, 0.5% and 1%. If you have never used retinol, it is best to start with the lowest, Retinol 0.2% in Squalane, and once the skin gets used to it, you can move on to the next one, Retinol 0.5% in Squalane to finish with the most potent, 1%.
When using retinol, you must always apply a photoprotector during the day because retinol is photosensitive. And during pregnancy and breastfeeding, retinoids should be avoided.
