    An outstandingly-stable, fast-acting form of vitamin C that notably fades spots and creates glowing skin complexion.

    • High antioxidation & anti-inflammation
    • Creates spotless, glowing skin tone

    What makes this product unique?

    3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid is an ethered derivative of the pure ascorbic acid. To date, this ethylated ascorbic acid is regarded as the most successful derivative of ascorbic acid because it acts on the pigments directly.

    3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid has a lovely lipophilic (oil-soluble) and hydrophilic (water-soluble) chemical structure. It can be mixed with any formulation easily for fast penetration into the skin to carry out excellent whitening effects by inhibiting the activity of tyrosinase, deoxidizing black melanin to tint melanin, therefore improving skin brightness visibly.

    Note: The presence of water degrades 3-O-ethyl ascorbic acid. The Ordinary Ethylated Ascorbic Acid 15% Solution contains 0% water, 0% silicone and 0% oil, the slippery sensation from propanediol will subside within minutes.

    All The Ordinary products carried by Worthee Cosmetics are 100% authentic (or your money back) and fragrance free.

    What does it do?

    Supported with high concentration of direct-acting ethylated ascorbic acid, thisfast-absorbing serum fades the look of brown spots and imperfections. The results? Glowing, spotless, healthy-looking skin.

    Who is this product for?

    Ideal for any skin type, particularly impressive for anyone with concerns for uneven skin tone, dullness, stubborn spots and post-acne marks.

    Apply twice daily after cleansing, toning and exfoliating.

    THE BEST!!

    THE BEST! I have sensitive skin and had resigned myself to not being able to use Vit C on my skin. Then I saw this was available and I'm loving it!! My moisturizers are oil-based, so this works beautifully with them, and adds a nice bit of moisture to my routine. And the results have been lovely - smoother skin, higher cell turnover, glowiness, less breakouts, less redness...I could go on.

    Great product!

    The Ordinary impresses yet again! This was my first Vitamin C purchase, and within just one use, my skin was visibly brighter. As I’ve continued usage, my skin tone has become much more even and smooth.

    so glowing

    I used more than 2 years
    Twice per week at night. It has a brightening effect... however the main reason i use it constantly is, that i really notice a firming effect the next morning.

    Love it

    Very pleased with the results l saw after using this vitamin c serum together with the granactve retinoid serum, after just one month. Topically-applied cosmetics really need 4-6 weeks of 'consistent' use to take effect. My skin tone and texture has become significantly more even, with a healthy glow.
