Tested for you: Reformulated hyaluronic acid serum “Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5” by The Ordinary

Hyaluronic acid and provitamin B5 are two important components in anti-ageing skincare. “Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5” is one of The Ordinary’s bestsellers. The new formulation makes the serum even more potent. The light, fragrance-free texture moisturizes the skin throughout the day while helping it to retain moisture better.

Hyaluronic acid, the natural moisturizer

The immediate plumping effect and long-lasting hydration are provided by five different types of hyaluronic acid, which moisturize the skin in several layers. These include low, medium and high molecular weight compounds, an HA cross-polymer and hydrolyzed HA. Hyaluronic acid is not an unknown substance for the body. It is a natural humectant that occurs in various tissues and binds water there.

Hyaluronic acid is mainly found in our skin and in the cartilage mass in the joint fluids. In these two skin layers, hyaluronic acid is synthesized by very specific cells, the so-called fibroblasts. They contain very specific proteins (hyaluronic acid synthases) in their cell membrane that are capable of producing hyaluronic acid.

As HA is a specific component of the cell membrane, its “production” takes place not only in a specific organ, but throughout the entire body. However, a large number of vitamins, especially vitamin C, magnesium, zinc and phytoestrogens are required for this. This is why it is so important to ensure an optimal supply of nutrients through your diet.

Vegan and oil-free

The new formulation of the “Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5” serum also contains ceramides known as sphingolipids. These are lipids that also occur naturally in the skin to lock in moisture. At the same time, they strengthen the skin’s protective barrier. Provitamin B5 in turn supports the formation of important skin barrier components such as ceramides and fatty acids. This also helps to retain moisture and thus provide the skin with long-term hydration.

My test has shown: First of all, the moisturizing, vegan formula with ultra-pure hyaluronic acid is pleasant to spread on the skin. A few drops in the morning and evening are completely sufficient. As there is no oil in the formula, my skin starts to tighten a few minutes after application. For a pleasant feeling, you should definitely use your usual skincare cream afterwards.

I was surprised that my skin immediately felt softer and smoother. It is so well moisturized throughout the day that dryness lines no longer stand a chance and all signs of dehydration disappear. My skin’s elasticity has also improved significantly after several weeks of regular use.

Why is this skincare so reasonably priced?

And why are some skincare products so expensive? I often ask myself this question when I test a good product at a low price. The explanation is simple: The Ordinary relies on formulations with only one or two potent ingredients. These must be tested and their effectiveness must be proven. In this way, production costs can be kept low.
