What is The Ordinary Amino Acids and what does it do?
Amino Acids (essential and non-essential) work in synergy with each other to form proteins that enable various biological processes. On the skin, Amino Acids promote skin repair, hydration, and water retention.
Our concentrated solution includes Amino Acids and Amino Acid derivatives to provide a combined total concentration of 17% (by weight). This resembles the composition of the skin’s own Amino Acids within our Natural Moisturizing Factors to provide the above-listed functions in addition to enhanced barrier support, elasticity, osmotic balance, and desquamation.
The formulation also includes a 5% (by weight) concentration of D-Panthenol (a pro-vitamin of Vitamin B5) which provides surface and below-surface hydration, while aiding in skin repair and anti-irritant functions.
Amino Acids + B5 may cause a slight tingling upon application and can be mixed with other serums or creams to reduce this sensation. We suggest applying Amino Acids + B5 as one of the first steps of your routine before oils and creams, morning and night.

I wanted to love The Ordinary Amino Acids but I get hives and reddened skin.
Love The Ordinary Amino Acids. I bought this one a few weeks ago. I’m 36 male with combo skin. This is super, super moisturizing and very efficient, I only need 4 drops for my whole face and neck (but I have a beard so u might need more).
One of my favourite products 🙂
