What is The Ordinary Argireline 10% & what does it do?
Argireline is one of the 4 peptides in The Ordinary range. The other peptides are; Buffet, Buffet + Copper Peptides and Matrixyl. Argireline is known as “Botox in a Bottle” as it targets the dynamic lines around the forehead and eye area.
Deciem’s simple explanation: Argireline Solution 10% – a super lightweight solution that targets signs of aging by improving the appearance of areas of the skin prone to dynamic folds (i.e. around the eyes & forehead).
How & when do I use The Ordinary Argireline
Argireline is a water based solution, so if you have read the How To Layer The Ordinary page, you will know that this is applied directly onto cleansed skin or as one of the first layers, if applying other water based products. It can be used in the morning and the evening followed by your emulsions, oils or creams.
Apply a few drops to the targeted areas, allow to absorb and then continue with the rest of your regimen.
What is a peptide?
Skincare peptides are made up of amino acids and of protein that have become indispensable anti-aging, active ingredients for the skin. Peptides are responsible for stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin and, really, they are an important protein for a young and smooth skin. Maintaining optimal levels of collagen will help reduce the aging process of the skin.
Peptides, when used correctly, can be your best friend for skin care, as they are responsible for renewing cells and play an important role in the fight against the signs of ageing.
Which products conflict with The Ordinary Argireline?
All the peptides have products that conflict. These include the following;
- The Ordinary Direct Acids
- Pure Vitamin C’s (check ingredients of other brands if using)
- L-Ascorbic Acid Power (LAA) Vitamin C
- Ethylated Ascorbic Acid Solution (ELAA) Vitamin C
- Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin
- Vitamin C 23% & 30%
This is Deciem´s response about mixing Peptides and Acids.
Our rule against combining strong antioxidants only applies to our products containing copper peptides. We would not recommend combining direct acids with peptides due to the susceptibility of peptides to hydrolysis (which breaks the bonds between peptides, reducing their efficacy and making them into individual amino acids). At low pH, the peptides undergo processes such as deamidation (the removal of an amide group) and oxidation, which compromise the activity of the peptides.
Having said that, if you have previously combined peptides with acids and have not experienced any negative side effects or discoloration, you may continue to combine the two products as so as the combination does not pose any potential harm. Our recommendations are meant to serve as a preventative measure to avoid any incompatibility between those combinations and also because skin tolerance in subjective.
Can I use Argireline if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
Argireline is ok to use if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. You should avoid products with retinoids and retinols but I always suggest consulting with your doctor as medical advice varies from country to country.
If you find little bits of product coming off your skin, this is called pilling or balling. It’s quite a common topic in the Deciem Chat Room. If this happens try using less product and patting it onto your face rather than rubbing it in. If the pilling continues, look at the other products you’re using alongside Argireline.

CES says: I’ve used the Buffet (which has this) for about 9 months now and don’t need Botox for the last 9 months. Now if that isn’t a positive review, I don’t know what is!🤩
