There are so many skin care brands out there that claims to be organic, nonabrasive, and uses only the highest quality of ingredients. Though these claims may be hard to prove for some brands, The Ordinary Malaysia has products that are super effective in solving all of your skin problems. Read more about The Ordinary Malaysia below.


Popular Products from The Ordinary Malaysia – Where Science Meets Beauty

The Ordinary originated in Canada and operates under the umbrella company, Deciem. The Ordinary, as well as other Deciem products, aims to solve skin dilemmas by using chemistry and biochemistry to create their top-notch concentrated formulas. These concentrated formulas are then used to make The Ordinary serums, masks, oils, moisturizers, and more.

An Extraordinary Brand

Like mentioned above, The Ordinary Malaysia uses clinical formulas that contain more concentrated ingredients in order to target specific skin concerns. For instance, run-of-the-mill products for hyperpigmentation contain only 1% of Alpha Arbutin while the same The Ordinary serum contains 2%. The brand’s concentrated formula will result in faster, better, and more visible results.

The Ordinary Retinoids

Currently, the brand carries 7 different types of retinol products with different formulas and concentrations. Among these 7 anti-ageing serums, one stands out the most as a favourite of many beauty enthusiasts. The Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane is a low-irritation serum that contains high concentrations of advanced retinoid. It will reduce the appearance of ageing signs without the itchiness and irritation that comes with other typical retinoid products.

Use The Ordinary Granactive Retinoid 5% in Squalane at night after water-based serums but before heavier products like gels and moisturizers. Be sure to not use this The Ordinary serum with other retinoid products and pair the serum with sunscreen as it can sensitize your skin to UV radiation.

The Ordinary Vitamin

Just like our bodies, our skin also needs its daily dosage of vitamins. One of the best vitamin products from The Ordinary is the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% that will help target almost all major skin concerns. The product has one of the highest niacinamide (vitamin B) concentrations found in a serum which can eliminate blemishes, discolouration, congestion, control excess sebum, and diminish the appearance of large pores and signs of ageing.

You can use this The Ordinary serum both in the morning and at night as part of your skincare regimen. Use it after toners and before heavy creams like night creams, moisturizers, and sunscreens. Do not use the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% together with vitamin C products which can reduce the potency of both ingredients.

The Ordinary Acids

Acids work wonders for those with acne-prone as well as dull skin. If your skin is in desperate need of a pick me up, look no further than The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution. Salicylic acid is a potent ingredient to exfoliate your dead skin away, unclog your pores and get rid of blackheads, eliminate acne and its scars, as well as congestion around the face. Another benefit of this The Ordinary serum is that it exfoliates and brightens efficiently without irritating your skin, something that glycolic acid may lack.

Use The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution both in the morning and night by applying it in small dots around the face. Avoid the eye areas, do not rinse off, and pair the serum with sunscreen because like the retinoid, it can increase your sensitivity to UV rays. Take note that this serum can dry out the skin.

The Ordinary Oils

Having dry skin may come with smaller pores and less sebum but there are so many downsides to peeling, irritated skin that is in crucial need of hydration. If this is the case for you, look no further than The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane. As the name suggests, this serum is made entirely out of plant-based and natural ingredients including squalane, a saturated hydrocarbon that can naturally be found in the skin. Squalane contains a high amount of emollience, a potent hydrator that can also prevent loss of hydration.

This oil from The Ordinary is suitable for all skin types and is non-comedogenic. Use the 100% Plant-Derived Squalane whenever you’re in need of extra hydration by applying a few drops evenly all over the face after water-based treatments.

The Ordinary Foundation

The Ordinary foundation line was introduced in 2017 and just like their serums and oils, these foundations are made with a highly saturated formula with 2 different finishes to cater to everyone’s makeup needs. The foundation comes in the Serum line, a lightweight, medium-coverage foundation, and the Coverage foundation that carries matte foundations that will provide full-coverage without turning cakey at the end of the day.

The Ordinary foundations from both lines come in 21 comprehensive shades and if you’re unsure of what your shade is, The Ordinary has created a colour swatch so you can pick the right foundation at the get-go. The Ordinary also offers two types of primers, the High-Adherence Silicone Primer and the High-Spreadability Fluid Primer, to help your foundation lock onto the skin effortlessly.

If you’re looking for an affordable range of skincare that will deliver fast and amazing results, The Ordinary Malaysia is the perfect brand for you. Start solving all of your skin dilemmas now with The Ordinary’s many serums, oils, vitamins, acids, and cosmetics.

Where can I find The Ordinary products in Malaysia?

Since there are no official stockists for The Ordinary in Malaysia yet, you can purchase them from small local sellers as well as online stores like Shopee and Lazada. The prices for each shop differs from the other, do your research on the price and see which seller offers the best deal.

How do you know if a product from The Ordinary is real?

Deciem is unable to verify the authenticity of a product if it’s not purchased from an authorized reseller. Refer to the official The Ordinary retailer network list to know where your products are coming from. Local resellers usually stock up their products from one of these authorized stockists in Canada, USA, Australia, Mexico, South Korea, China, and the Netherlands. Ask your reseller to confirm the origin of the products. If they’re unable to verify the origins and are selling the products at a low price, the products are probably fake.
