The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA is a gentle Alpha Hydroxy Acid to exfoliate and rejuvenate even sensitive skin. With Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate.

Why you need it

The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA offers superficial dermal peeling that is gentler than other alpha hydroxy acids. The molecular weight of mandelic acid is 152.1 daltons which is larger than other alpha hydroxy acids (glycolic acid is 76.0 daltons, for example). This larger size allows mandelic acid to penetrate the skin more slowly which in turn makes it very gentle and suitable for all skin types including the most sensitive skin. You don't need a concentration of more than 10%, because then you would simply be achieving an indirect peeling strength that is more easily offered through lower percentages of Glycolic Acid.

Free from:
Alcohol-Free, Oil-Free, Silicone-Free, Nut-Free, Gluten-Free, Cruelty-Free, Vegan

Apply once per day, ideally in the PM. Can be diluted with other treatments to reduce strength until skin develops tolerance.

This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.



Key Ingredients

Mandelic Acid: Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that offers gentle exfoliation to the skin. It has a larger molecular weight than other AHAs, which allows it to penetrate the skin more slowly and makes it suitable for all skin types. Mandelic acid can help to improve skin clarity, balance uneven skin tone, and correct skin texture in a gentle, yet effective manner.

Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid is a humectant that helps to attract and retain moisture in the skin. It contributes to the hydrating properties of the serum.

Q: What are the benefits of Mandelic Acid?
A: Mandelic Acid helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve skin texture, and diminish acne scars and pigmentation. Due to its larger molecular structure, it's gentler than other AHAs, making it more suitable for sensitive skin.

Q: How often should I use it?
A: Start by using it 2-3 times a week in your night-time routine. Depending on how your skin reacts, you can adjust the frequency.

Q: Is it suitable for all skin types?
A: Mandelic Acid is suitable for most skin types, especially those with sensitive skin due to its gentler nature.

Q: Is sun protection necessary when using this product?
A: Absolutely. AHAs, including Mandelic Acid, can increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning when using this product in your routine.

Q: What is the role of Hyaluronic Acid in this product?
A: Hyaluronic Acid is included for its hydrating properties. It helps deliver moisture to the skin, counteracting potential dryness from the exfoliating process.
