The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5%



The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% is packed with Anti-Oxidant power to reduce the signs of photo-damage and premature ageing, including pigmentation, lines and wrinkles. 

Why you need it:
The Ordinary Alpha Lipoic Acid 5% is an enzyme that has powerful Anti-Oxidant properties, and is up to 400 times stronger than Vitamins C and E. It boosts the impact of other anti-oxidants including Vitamins C and E, while working to improve skin's texture and tone for a renewed and refreshed complexion. It combats free radical activity that can cause premature ageing, lessening the signs of photo-damage including pigmenation and fine lines.  It helps to exfoliate skin, exposing brighter skin cells underneath, and regulate skin's production of oil for fewer clogged pores and breakouts.

Alpha Lipoic Acid is sensitive to sunlight, so keep away from direct sunlight, and use at night-time only for maximum effectiveness.
Do not use on irritated or sensitive skin.

Free from:

How to use:
