Neutralise free radicals for healthier-looking skin with The Ordinary Resveratrol + Ferulic Acid. This antioxidant-rich skincare elixir combines resveratrol and ferulic acid to minimise the visible signs of ageing by defending the skin against environmental damage.

The highly concentrated resveratrol in this solution is derived 100% from Japanese knotweed, as it is a natural phenol which can be found in a number of plants. Similarly, the ferulic acid present in the formula is a high-potency phytochemical antioxidant found naturally in the walls of plant cells.

This formula does not contain any water, silicones, oils or alcohol and can be mixed with other treatments to enhance the antioxidant capacity of the product’s ingredients.

Key Benefits

  • Works to defend the skin against free radical damage and signs of ageing
  • Highly concentrated formula
  • Plant-based ingredients rich in antioxidants
  • Promotes the skin's natural production of collagen and elastin
  • Free from water, silicones and alcohol

SKU# UK200029821


Apply alone or after water-based serums, before oils or heavier creams. Alternatively, mix with other treatments to enhance their antioxidant capacity significantly. This treatment is highly concentrated and can be diluted with most oils per application to reduce strength.

A small amount of Resveratrol 3% and Ferulic Acid 3% and The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2% or Vitamin C Suspension 30% in Silicone can be diluted in any one of our oils at each application to form an outstanding antioxidant network of Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid and Resveratrol in lipids. It is recommended to keep this mixture at low strength.

If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised. Keep out of reach of children. Do not refrigerate.

Vey oily

It's probably my fault for not having read that it's a water-free serum, but this stuff is so oily that, after a couple of days of application, I had to stop using it. Shame, because I really wanted to introduce anti-oxidants in my skincare and I was looking forward to trying this serum out for as long as the bottle would have lasted. I actually wanted to combine it with vitamin C in the morning, however, this serum has the consistency a face oil and, unless you're extremely dry or use it as a last step in your routine (I don't see how, since you're always going to apply at least a sunscreen on top in the A.M.) layering is going to be a HUGE problem. I gave it a try but I personally found it impossible to use. Gar to heavy and oily. Therefore, I cannot vouch for any long-term results, but I though it was important to highlight the texture of this serum so that other consumers don't make the same mistake I made. I have normal to combo skin that it's also slightly sensitive.

Perfect with Vit C

I am not sure if this is ok to combine with vitamin C but i have been seeing formulations of vitamin c with ferulic acid. So I decided to mix both during nights where I am scheduled to use vitamin c. I notice that I wake up with a brighter face the next day. No breakouts! Happy that I decided to try this! Will repurchase!

Serum super

Moje absolutnie ukochane serum. Zawsze kiedy moja trądzikowa cera zaczyna wariować pokornie do niego wracam, bo tylko on po jednym użyciu wycisza wszystkie wypryski i zaczerwienienia, a skóra wygląda zdecydowanie lepiej jest jędrna i promienna. Cudo!

I purchased this serum to see how two powerful antioxidants, ferulic acid and resveratrol can benefit my skin. And I observed great results, my skin is smoother and brighter after every use. I think this serum is better used as a booster to mix with other products than alone, because though effective as it appears, the texture can be too heavy for some if applied alone, plus the concentration of the ingredients are already very high, no need to worry it'll be diluted.

Inexpensive But Ineffective

I have dry and sensitive-prone sky. I bought this serum to help with skin brightness and luminosity. I usually love products from The Ordinary as they’re effective and inexpensive. However, this serum doesn’t live up to the more expensive ferulic acid serums I’ve tried. You only need a small amount of this serum used daily, however I found this product quickly oxidised and was then unusable. I can only put this down to the formula, as I haven’t had this issue with similar ferulic acid serums I’ve tried. Overall it is a decent product and the fact it is so inexpensive means if it does oxidise, you haven’t wasted money on an expensive serum.

Best Use: Dark Circles, Uneven Skin Tone, Hyperpigmentation, Brightening
