What makes this product unique?
Alpha lipoic acid, also known as 6,8-thioctic acid, was first discovered in 1951. In the past 60 years, alpha lipoic acid’s role as an antioxidant has been shown to be effective in scavenging the hydroxyl radical, singlet oxygen, and nitric oxide, offering protection to skin cells.
Interestingly, alpha lipoic acid is so powerful that it can revive and regenerate other antioxidants, such as vitamin C and vitamin E. Being both lipid-soluble and water-soluble, alpha lipoic acid can reach all portions of the skin cells to offer maximum antioxidant protection against free radicals from UV radiation.
Note: Water degrades most potent antioxidants. This formula contains 0% water, 0% silicones, 0% oils and 0% alcohol for maximum potency and stability.
All The Ordinary products carried by Worthee Cosmetics are 100% authentic (or your money back) and fragrance free.
What does it do?
Featuring an remarkably unusual regenerating “universal antioxidant”, The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% serves as an effective treatment on photo-damaged skin. Specifically, research shows that 5% alpha lipoic acid reduces the depth of vertical fine lines, minimizes pore size and improves skin tone.
Who is this product for?
Ideal for all skin types especially those looking for a potent anti-aging boost in their skincare routine.
