The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin HA Serum
The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Serum is a targeted skincare treatment designed to address hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone. Formulated with a high concentration of alpha arbutin, a naturally derived skin-brightening ingredient, this serum works to inhibit melanin production and fade the appearance of discoloration, revealing a more even and radiant complexion. Enhanced with hyaluronic acid (HA), it also provides lightweight hydration to plump and smooth the skin, leaving it soft, supple, and revitalized.
Key Features of The Ordinary Alpha Arbutin HA Serum :
- Alpha Arbutin: Contains a high concentration (2%) of alpha arbutin, a gentle yet effective skin-brightening agent derived from the bearberry plant. Alpha arbutin works by inhibiting tyrosinase, the enzyme responsible for melanin production, thereby reducing the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
- Targets Hyperpigmentation: The potent formula targets areas of hyperpigmentation, including sun spots, age spots, and acne scars, helping to fade their appearance over time for a more uniform complexion.
- Brightens Skin: By inhibiting melanin synthesis, alpha arbutin helps to brighten dull and sallow skin, revealing a luminous and radiant complexion.
- Hydrating Formula: Enriched with hyaluronic acid (HA), a humectant known for its ability to attract and retain moisture, the serum provides lightweight hydration to the skin, helping to plump and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
- Non-Irritating: The gentle formula is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and is less likely to cause irritation or sensitivity compared to other skin-brightening ingredients such as hydroquinone.
- Oil-Free and Non-Comedogenic: The lightweight, oil-free formula absorbs quickly into the skin without clogging pores, making it suitable for oily and acne-prone skin types.
- Vegan and Cruelty-Free: Like all products from The Ordinary, Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA Serum is vegan and cruelty-free, formulated without animal-derived ingredients and not tested on animals.
- Visible Results: With regular use, users can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone, resulting in a brighter, clearer, and more radiant complexion.
