    Guessing 1% line is just after the Niacinamide….hence the peptides is probably similar to the contents of a sneeze. 🙂 So everything above the 1% line is dirt cheap. Easy!

    It’s 15ml, so the price looks about reasonable for the ingredients.

    I don’t think i saw them revealing the percentages of ingredients for this serum compared to their matrixyl one, so it’s possible that they didn’t have much of them in there.

      Reasonable? Do you buy the peptides for your formulations?

        Yes, i did buy some peptides before from repackers, but obviously i don’t but it buy at the scale that The Ordinary is buying from the manufacturers’ at.

    Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol is pretty cheap. There’s no rule they have to put anything in the formula more than say 0.01% so they can make it as cheap as they want. In truth, who would notice a difference?

    If you tell a consumer there is niacinamide or peptides or any other active, they can’t tell a difference between 10% or 0.01% so how much you add doesn’t matter. Add less, product costs less. Simple

      I can say Niacinamide 10% or 0.01% 😅 Just tested 2 solutions, the one with 10% gives me a flush

        Fair enough. I think your experience would not be that of a typical consumer.
