The Best Ordinary Acids Voted By The Deciem Addicts

No. 1 The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA

Deciem says: Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) exfoliate the skin’s topmost surface for a brighter and more even appearance. Beta hydroxy acids (BHA) also exfoliate the skin with an extended function to help clear pore congestion. This combined 32% AHA/BHA solution offers deeper exfoliation to help fight visible blemishes and improve skin radiance. The formula also improves the appearance of skin texture and reduces the look of fine lines with continued use.

No. 2 The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

No. 4 The Ordinary Azelaic Acid

Deciem says: Found in grains, Azelaic Acid is produced naturally by yeast that lives on normal skin. It brightens the skin tone while visibly improving the evenness of skin texture and reducing the look of blemishes. It is a multi-functional support ingredient for all skin types and acts as an effective antioxidant.

No. 5 The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2%

Deciem Says: Alpha Lipoic Acid is a highly potent antioxidant and can restore a renewed skin appearance, improving visible skin texture and tone when applied topically. This formulation uses an exceptionally high 5% concentration of high-purity Alpha Lipoic Acid. 

No. 7 The Ordinary Mandelic Acid

Best Ordinary Acids
Mandelic Acid

Mandelic Acid 10% + HA offers superficial dermal peeling 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.

No. 8 The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5%
